    I forgot about this one. Glad they released an instrumental. I really like how their vocalist sounds, but some of those lyrics....yeesh.

    whaaaaaa I didn't know that anyone knew about this band besides me, and I didn't know that they ever released any music since A Declaration of Sound. Man, that was like my top prog metal album for years. Really, it still is, because I almost never listen to that kind of prog metal lol I gotta check out their other stuff!

    edit: I see that this IS the first new music they've made since their first album! So I wasn't really so far out of the loop lol

    I actually haven't heard A Declaration of Sound yet. But The Light Years is definitely my favorite album of the year. I also enjoyed their video series about each song on the album. Really talented musicians.

    In no specific order:
    Haken - Vector;
    Plini - Sunhead (technically an EP tho');
    Subsignal - La Muerta;
    Rise of the Northstar - The Legacy of Shi;
    Owane - Yeah Whatever.

    Albums I wanted to like but ultimately didn't care for:
    Seventh Wonder - Tiara (really gutted on that one, I was really happy to hear that they were back),
    Angra - Ømni.

    A prog heavy year once you omit the latest Rise of the Northstar, but still with variety between all these artists.

    I like this album title the most...one "T" away from jumping the shark, but one "T" short of going full-stop Crazy Town up in here. I wanna listen to this LOL.

    Gotta surf through my music library to see what actually came out this year but in no particular order:
    Four Stroke Baron - Planet Silver Screen; fantastic breath of fresh air, super original and interesting
    A Perfect Circle - Eat the Elephant; goddamn if So Long and Thanks for All the Fish isn't the best song I've heard in years, everything about it is perfect, and the rest of the album is solid if not a departure from their earlier stuff
    Childish Gambino - Summer Pack + hon. mention to This is America; enough said
    Crippled Black Phoenix - Great Escape - beautiful prog rock and just a huge sound
    The Ocean - Phanerozoic I; haven't actually listened to the whole thing yet but it's a follow up to a prog metal masterpiece and they can't disappoint me, it's been too long and I needed a new Ocean album this year
    Stelliferous - Canine Familiar; more excellent work from one of my favourite instrumental post-metal artists

    New stuff I need to check out:
    Beyond Creation a spin but I was a little bored with Earthborn Evolution, so hoping it'll grab my interest with some tasty riffs.
    Between the Buried and Me
    Coheed and Cambria
    Inferi - didn't realize they put out a new one out so need to check that out.

    lol the new album is actually so much like A Declaration of Sound that I kinda don't care about it that much. After 6 years or whatever you think they might have tried some new twists!

    It's not bad. Hey, if you like this new one, I think their old one will be right up your alley!

    Technically this is a 2018 release, but there's an album coming in 2019. Stoked.

    I forgot that Weedpecker III actually came out in 2018 (just barely)

    Even though their name is really silly, I think Weedpecker is one of the best stoner metal bands out there right now. I like how each album is pretty different from each other, too.

    Weedpecker III brings even more a psychedelic rock element than ever before.

    Just found out about this album the other day (Sunless Dawn - Timeweaver). Nice proggy-tech-death that isn't overly techy or overly proggy. If you liked the new Horrendous, I suspect you'll like this. :yesway:

    Have to agree with Azusa, this one was under my radar until just a couple days ago. Great vocals over Dillinger-esque craziness.

    If anyone likes Downtempo/Trance, here is a recent/late release, top 3 for me.
