I want to take a second to talk about Crown of Thornz and Fury of Five, oddly enough Mentally Vexed and At War with the World have been keeping me sane. I've always liked these records but lately more than ever, Juggernaut is still one of the hardest ever in my opinion, and stickman is still horrifying and awesome to listen to. Still waiting the day for a Band to cover Juggernaut so I can kill somebody, or even myself.
Records that have come out this year that I have enjoyed;
Have Heart - Songs to Scream at the Sun
I think the record's awesome, it was surprisingly short, but still awesome. I feel like its slower and more melodic, so of course I'm into it. Favorite songs on the record are "Pave Paradise" and "Brotherly Love."
Trapped Under Ice - Stay Cold
Hit that Crown of Thornz feel right on the money, so stoked for this band. Aggressive NYHC, my favorite. Im glad a band like this is doing things. Sucks they're van got broken into in Europe. Favorite song on the record is Street Lights. Mosh Mosh Mosh.
Verse - Aggression
This record is sooooooo good, way better than I thought it would be. It's gotten more political which is good. I hope this record doesn't get overlooked, it's hard for a band to put out 3 solid LP's so I hope this record gets what it deserves. Favorite songs on the record are "Scream" and "Sons and Daughters"
Blacklisted - Heavier than Heaven Lonelier than God
God damn, I've been waiting for Blacklisted to put out an LP and it was well worth the wait, I remember when "I am Weighing Me Down" came out and people were complaining, yeah its not like the demo or our youth is wasted, but its still fucking good. I like it when bands change like Blacklisted did, it just makes me feel like they matured in how they wanted to write music.
Shipwreck - Abyss
Each song makes me want to kill somebody, good job.
