    6 months of 2019 are up (and a bit), it's time for this annual thread.

    I haven't heard much new music this year (as every other year). But here are a few that I enjoyed.

    Excellent :
    October Tide - In Splendor Below
    Abbath - Outstrider
    Fractal Universe - Rhizomes Of Insanity
    Kryptos - Afterburner


    Rather good :
    Evergrey - The Atlantic
    Dream Theater - Distance over time
    Cellar Darling - The Spell

    Disappointments :
    Rotting Christ - The Heretics
    Amon Amarth - Berserker

    Metal(-ish)
    Abyssal – A Beacon In The Husk
    Andavald – Undir skyggðarhaldi
    Bergraven – Det framlidna minnet
    Drastus – La Croix de Sang
    Dreadnought – Emergence
    Immortal Bird – Thrive on Neglect
    Inter Arma – Sulphur English
    Kaleikr – Heart of Lead
    Skáphe + Wormlust – Kosmískur hryllingur
    Yellow Eyes – Rare Field Ceiling

    Aside: Still getting into the latest from Dead to a Dying World, Jute Gyte, and Sinmara. New Deathspell Omega is also very good, as expected, but Mikko Aspa is a piece of shit, so I know that's tainted the release for many people.

    Non-metal(-ish):

    Big Brave – A Gaze Among Them
    Elizabeth Colour Wheel – Nocebo
    The Gloaming – The Gloaming 3
    Helms Alee – Noctiluca
    Julia Jacklin – Crushin'
    Murmur – The Boundless Black
    Pinkish Black – Concept Unification
    Self Defense Family – Performative Guilt
    Thom Yorke – Anima
    Vaura – Sables

    Looking forward to:
    Batushka (this band's schism is a mess. I enjoy Панихида, so I'm curious to find out if the Metal Blade version of this band is any good); Chelsea Wolfe; Kayo Dot; Lingua Ignota; Mizmor; No One Knows What the Dead Think; Opeth (even though my expectations are low, the idea of having the same album with two different languages is interesting); Tomb Mold.

    The Gaahls Wyrd album is also worth my attention.

    If were talking only stuff released in 2019 then:

    Ningen Isu - Shin Seinen

    Always thought japanese metal sucked, until I saw those fucking grandpas rocking it. Recommending Heartless Scat.

    As for dissapointments:

    Amon Amarth - Berserker. Two good songs at best
    Opeth - whatever the new shit's called.
