Last year there were a handful of standouts to me-Carcass, Agrimonia, Cult of Luna, Voivod, Darkthrone, Gorguts. This year there was a larger number of releases I got into.
Also been young punk band, White Lung that I think have some metal/hard rock appeal-but they are definitely a female fronted punk band a little like L7/Courtney Love but I think better.
Still reeling over the strong releases last year. It would be great to have another good Enslaved release tho.
That Gorguts man... I get more and more into that as time goes by. I think it's one of my favorite all time releases. I agree that 2013 and 2014 were both great years.
To name a few albums that get very regular rotation from me...
2014 releases: Artificial Brain, Pyrrhon, Baring Teeth (took me a little while to get into this one, but it's really good),Horrendous, Ne Obliviscaris, Origin, Archspire (DR of 4! haha), ZOM, Panopticon, Carcass
2013 releases: Gorguts (FOR THE WIN!), Wormed, Ulcerate, Voivod is pretty sweet, Witherscape, Deeds of Flesh, Monolithe, Ataraxie, The Ocean (!!!), Cerekloth
If 2015 is going to measure up to the last two years, a lot has to happen.
