    I didn't feel the same way about The Plague WIthin, actually. It was one of the albums of that year for me... A lot of high-energy songs and plenty of highlights and variance in sound. The new album kind of all sounds the same, and a bit boring.

    Arch Enemy's already got leaked, I barely made it through tho, not my cup of tea.
    Some good music not yet mentioned:

    Dying Fetus - Wrong One to Fuck With _____ (an absolute killer but takes time getting used to)
    Warbringer - Woe to the Vanquished _____ (really strong thrash, which is hard to come by these days)
    Enfold Darkness - Adversary Omnipotent _____ (easily AOTY material for me, unexpected second release after 8 years of nothing)
    Gorod - Kiss the Freak _____ (typical Gorod, but in thrash form, EP released on April 1st possibly as a joke? the music is no joke though, highly recommend checking out)
    Ancient Ascendant - Raise The Torch _____ (the band says "fuck it" and goes from average blackened death metal to blatant at times death'n'roll, see the vid below, there's a fucking cowbell; fun record)
    Hideous Divinity - Adveniens _____ (have at you, Hour of Penance)
    Entrails - World Inferno _____ (oldschool Swedish dm, nice album, expected worse; below is this album's vision of Slaughter of the Soul the song, seriously how much more similar does it get?)
    Desultory - Through Aching Aeons _____ (officialy their last ever record, rip Desultory; good album but nothing exceptional)
    Desecresy - The Mortal Horizon _____ (classic Finnish take on death metal, consistently good these guys)

    Disappointments of the half-year would be Havok and Galaktikon aka Brendon Small.

    If you omit all the filler material their albums are quite enjoyable still.

    New Arch Enemy is also shit. I do not understand how such individually excellent musicians can make such sub-par music as a band.

    Immolation is basically carrying 2017 by itself at this point.

    I still maintain that she's a really good vocalist, both clean and growled. But she's doing fuck-all in Arch Enemy now. And yes, they're wasting Jeff Loomis as well, of course.

    She's got a decent clean voice but her growl has noticeable -core influences, which is why I personally can't stand her. Lots of people are shitting on him but I was perfectly happy with how Liiva sang. At least Loomis does solo stuff and Conquering Dystopia's album should be around the corner.

    I've done the only decent thing and never listened to a song with her, simply assumed she was shit. I'm a boss <3

    So I went on youtube and looked into this new Arch Enemy thing.

    Meh'd again.

    But at the very top of suggestions for AE listeners were this:



    While avarage at best still better than AE lmao.

    Meanwhile, Beneath released another good album - Ephemeris. This time less atmosphere, more groove, Blood Red Throne vibes at times. Long live Icelandic death metal.
