    2019 Highlights In No Special Order:

    Rings Of Saturn -Gidim
    Rings Of Saturn-Gidim is their best album to date. IMO Kind of a mature and complete cohesive accomplishment for the sound they have always been going for. Now truly the word “cohesive” is not exactly the right description though. The album has so much going on from so many directions that it’s better to maybe walk around listening to it and not focus on it. After a day of repeating it, it kind of gets memorable? Just insanely good musicianship and song writing. There has never been anything like it.

    Rammstein -Rammstein
    Of course another perfect example of 2019 being the greatest year for metal in history. A self titled masterpiece (almost) with a farther out, yet real tribute to their own sound. The future of Rammstein shows it’s simply the same basic foundation yet taken to the ultimate creative level with song writing and amazing production. It’s just totally “them” with an added dose of “them” injected. Just think if you ever saw the word “fun” on the cover sticker of a CD in a store? Well fun IS this!

    Cattle Decapitation -Death Atlas
    While not their best ever it’s a smoothed-out and highly listenable affair. The band is so good that even with Death Atlas being their third best album it’s still better than most. They are taking what they do and continuing, not different, but maybe slightly more commercial? Hard to pinpoint but Death Atlas has me bring out the prior two releases tor multiple listens just because of the curiosity it created. Death Atlas is recorded super well, has perfect pace and feel. It’s just earlier albums were maybe more 100% quality and explosive. Again the wrong word here as Death Atlas is the most explosive album in this post, it’s just not as explosive as their prior work. Still the band is so unique and special this is an absolute star of 2019!

    Lacuna Coil -Black Anima
    What their best album ever? Yes. They re-evaluated what they wanted to be in the end and remade themselves for 2019. They are the hardest and darkest, the fastest and loudest. Common what more do you want? Well they offer top sound here.....literally sound fireworks throughout!

    Mayhem -Daemon
    Continuing with bands basically being their best ever? Again another. Another album and another time Mayhem have reinvented themselves. Only this time they found their essence from days past. That essence was contemplated and discovered again. That essence was brought forth for youngsters to carry with them onto 2030. Another statement album that metal is alive and well in 2019. Surprisingly........modern and powerful underneath....getting stronger and more pure........more real-life and darker. The end result is a must listen, a sophisticated future music still holding the elements which were and are important. A stepping stone of classic music once again making 2019 a year to remember and to gaze upon in awe. :)

    Candlemass -The Door To Doom
    Not their best work but consistent with the last album. Something you hear but then remember and go back to. Nice to hear an old style get buffed-up and sparkly!

    Possessed -Revelations Of Oblivion
    Truly the unexpected here. With metal getting points for being original, how is it that a band can come back with only one original member yet channel the sound they were known for to perfection? But yes, anything is possible if you want it bad enough, but you need to truly want it.....bad! Bringing the past back and again showing the kids how it’s supposed to be done. Like every album on this page, this music is played with such effortless perfection it really stands out. The old sound carried into the future here. The guitars were some of the most interesting, unique and darn best of the year. Such well done and well thought out accomplished sounds and songs.

    Revel In Flesh- The Hour Of The Avenger
    Take an old Death-metal guitar sound from Entombed era, combine it with old song structures and normally you would get boring. Somehow the opposite happens here. Exciting and new, fun and modern. Again another example of metal for 2019 building on the past and getting stronger not weaker.
