    In no particular order:



    I'll I'll put this one out there. I thought it was a killer album -- and didn't expect to like it based on their previous few. I hope they get their legal situation sorted out, for better or worse. But either way, it's a killer album:

    The new QOTSA is pretty awesome IMO.

    New Converge is great as well.

    I like Mastodons latest release also.

    In some ways I have listened to too much music and kind of gotten bored with a lot of it because at first I couldn't think of a single album worth mentioning, not that I have anything against people creating. It's a good thing for many people involved.

    Anyways, after I while I remembered the new Ulver which is fairly good.

    After reading through the first page I was shocked there was no mention of clairvoyant by the contortionist. Now I am relieved, yet one cannot mention it enough.
    If I had to choose a track to show people here it would be the title track claivoyant:

    Album comes out in 2 days, but everything's up for streaming on bandcamp. I've been listening to these tracks nonstop for weeks now.

    :lol: that GIF. :yesway:

    It's Glassjaw and it's a fantastic album. It's also been 15 years since they have put one out. I'm guessing you're unfamiliar with them?
