    I find myself listening to the same 4 or 5 albums every couple of weeks and it's getting stale. What's new and worth checking out? Genre isn't really important, I just care if it's catchy and makes you want to move.

    Here's a sampling of what I currently have on repeat:

    Damn! Almost forgot about DGD.
    I've been listening to these guys for a few years, and they just released an amazing album. One of my favorite bands right now. Also Northlane, Vic Mensa, and Flatbush Zombies

    Been spinning a lot of Converge lately. Not new, by any means, but if you haven't listened to them, it's extremely worth the time invested. You only spin 4 or 5 albums, so their discography will give you more than enough to work on. Start with Jane Doe and move on from there.

    Jane Doe is so incredibly good that I pretty much don't even listen to their other albums even though they're all great. But Jane Doe is un-top-able, and even after listening to it a billion times none of the songs have grown stale.

    Your mom.






    Nah but seriously, I don't really know. New BMTH has planted itself firmly in my head despite my better judgement.

    I've been digging more and more alt-country :yum: (Is that what you even call these? I just know Drive By Truckers and Uncle Tupelo are always in the related sections on Spotify and whatnot for Sturgill Simpson and Nikki Lane)

    Immortal Bird's new album:


    and Vattnet Viskar (album is in stereo, ignore ....ty YT version):


    The chorus is "WE" in binary code and it's about ant colonies as a metaphor for human existence. ....ing cool as hell.

    New BTBAM, not bothering to post it since everybody already knows what they sound like but it's my favorite of theirs since The Silent Circus and fixes a lot of the problems I had with their last several records.

    Harrow's The River EP. Like Opeth meets Drudkh but with even more solitude and forests and .....

    Djent and Metalcore are kind of fading most new fans & musicians are getting into stuff like this now, at least here:







    It was going to happen eventually, you can only have the conceited special snowflake boutique-obsessed gearhead widdly prog vibe for so long before people get really sick of it. Metalcore became a vehicle for Hardcore like four years ago when bands like TGI got popular rather than Attack Attack type bands.

    I agree with the point McKay is making. I've been so sick of all the overproduced prog labeled stuff that's being pumped out like iPhones that I've turned to more raw stuff recently. Hardcore, beatdown, whatever you want to call it.
