Here’s what I’ve been listening to:
Sonder by TesseracT – TesseracT is one of my favorite bands, and I was eagerly awaiting the release of Sonder every since it was announced. This album is fantastic and is quite possibly my favorite of 2018 so far. Dan sounds better than ever (Sonder features some amazing harsh vocals), the musical composition is top-notch, the odd time signatures are delightful, the bass lines bring a smile to my face, and the mix is stellar. My only complaint? I wish it were longer.
Where Owls Know My Name by Rivers of Nihil – A breathtaking modern metal album. Saxophones make an appearance on a couple of songs on this record and do not feel out of place in the slightest.
Esoteric Malacology by Slugdge – A progressive metal album about slugs featuring AWESOME guitar riffs!
Fractured by Lunatic Soul – This album introduced me to the musical genius that is Mariusz Duda.
Loma by Loma – An ethereal indie pop record.
