This is why we need to keep metal forums alive. Not just facebook or whatever popularity contest social media that's out there right now.

Threads like this is where we can share as a community what we're excited about and learn from each other. There are bands up there I didn't know released new albums this last year.

And the one that I do know of and agree is a top contender - Possessed! Just great to have an album after all this time that actually sounds like a Possessed album.

^^This thread reminded me to pick up that Possessed album. For some reason I completely forgot about it!

SPINY: I haven't picked up a Devy album since Deconstruction. He is very hit and miss for me. Is Empath his best in a while?

If I had heard many things from this last year, Car Bomb ran away with the titular prize by a mile anyway. Also they done one of the best live performances I've ever seen/heard at the Animals As Leaders show in August. Ridiculously multi-dimensioned and complicated, going all-in on the cerebral aspect but somehow catchy and intriguing and tantalizing, basically this guy is the Mew Two of drumming (except: no cold heart) (probably). Once again a record fully stacked with things that are interesting to me - 3 CB records in a row that have straight floored me. I like these a LOT, wish they'd put out more frequently ('07, '12, '16, '19 - knockin a year off the lag each time) but I appreciate why that isn't a thing.

Also opposite end of the spectrum - I really liked Muerte by Will Haven. One of my favourite shouting vocalists and this record was a fookin barnstormer. Big, sloppy, goo-ey hardcore-adjacent goodness. They've hung onto the atmospheric elements that marked the later phase of the band, but still got that stripped back slamming thing. Very strong.

Didn't mind the Tool record but it's gonna take so long to just be able to take it at face value, I don't even feel like I can 'hear' it properly, my brain has just gone into noise mode a few times when I've put it on. I have no idea when the complication of the big gap and the expectations is gonna wear off, wasn't Album Of The Year but it... it sure happened.

Probably a 3 way tie between Devourment, Mayhem, and Cattle Decap
