    This is criminal.
    The best album they've put out yet imo, save for maybe Catch 33. Definitely make the time.

    Surely you can't be that surprised that most people have never even heard of them. I actively seek out new metal music all the time and this is the first time I've ever even seen the words Xenomorphic and Contamination written juxtaposed.

    A friend of mine begged me to wait for him to get back home so we can listen to it at the same time. Man you've got me excited for it!

    Check out the other post reunion albums. The seer is pretty folky, to be kind is pretty groovy and the glowing man is pretty spaced out. All of them are fantastic and roughly two hours long.

    As much as I actually like the album I'm not the least bit surprised to it going unmentioned, especially here. On this forum the brutal death metal fans are few and far between so "obscure-heavy-bands A and B" are barely ever mentioned.

    Oh, I've got them alright. I know Soundtrack for the Blind is super long but that's a double-album. My Father Will Guide Me Up isn't that long. I guess I just kinda forgot that The Seer and To Be Kind are just as long lol. You know for some reason, To Be Kind never grabbed me like the other albums do. I think I've only listened to it attentively all the way through like one time ever. I should try it again sometime.

    Whenever I try to listen to The Glowing Man, after each track I want to go back and listen to The World Looks Red / The World Looks Black again and I never get to the end of the album :lol:

    (in no particular order)
    Gojira-Magma Way more simplistic than I would have liked (From Mars to Sirius is still my favorite album by them) but an excellent album nonetheless.
    Revocation-Great is our Sin So good. Dave Davidson is a monster player.
    Wardruna- Ragnarok I just discovered Wardruna and am obsessed. all of their albums are dope.
    Protest the Hero-Pacific Myth. PTH can do no wrong in my book.
    Khemmis-Hunted. Good solid sludgy metal but with clean vocals, which is right up my alley. their previous album absolution is better imo but this one is still pretty damn good.
    Phantogram- Three. I have loved Phantogram since their first album and this one has a ton of great songs on it (you don't get me high anymore, funeral pyre,etc.)
    Kaleo-A/B. So good. There's a reason these dudes are getting tons of attention.
    Miike Snow-iii. Too many good tracks on here. Genghis Khan is super catchy.
