    Not many highlights so far, except Katatonia and Fifth to Infinity (officially a 2015 release though). Thenighttimeproject is nice, but not AOTY material.

    Disappointments (more or less):
    - October Tide
    - Megadeth
    - In Mourning

    Still looking forward to/curious about Witherscape, Vanhelgd, Opeth, Metallica? Dark Tranquillity.

    Top 10 is something like this:

    Katatonia - The Fall of Hearts
    Deftones - Gore
    Thenighttimeproject - Thenighttimeproject
    Cult of Luna & Julie Christmas - Mariner
    Ray LaMontagne - Ouroboros
    Mourning Beloveth - Rust & Bone
    Daughter - Not to Disappear
    The Foreshadowing - Seven Heads, Ten Horns
    Wray - Hypatia
    Damien Jurado - Visions of Us in the Land

    way better year than last year, despite Katatonia and Deftones being flawed yet still sexy

    Plenty of good stuff out this year and I haven't spent enough time to know what's gonna stand out for me, so this is almost just a list of what I've picked up.

    EP
    Agoraphobic Nosebleed - Arc
    Cecil Otter - Dear Echo
    Chelsea Wolfe - Hypnos/Flame
    Gorguts - Pleiades' Dust
    Imperial Triumphant - Inceste
    Krallice - Hyperion
    Massive Attack - Ritual Spirit

    LP
    Aluk Todolo - Voix
    Astronautalis - Cut the Body Loose
    Bhavachakra – Bhavachakra
    The Black Queen - Fever Daydream
    Bloodmist - Sheen
    The Body - No One Deserves Happiness
    Buñuel - A Resting Place for Strangers
    Cobalt - Slow Forever
    David Bowie - Blackstar
    Eight Bells - Landless
    Forndom - Dauðra Dura
    Howls of Ebb - Cursus Impasse: The Pendlomic Vows
    Ihsahn - Arktis
    Inverloch - Distance | Collapsed
    Jute Gyte - Perdurance
    Mamiffer - The World Unseen
    Muscle & Marrow - Love
    Nails - You Will Never Be One of Us
    Palace of Worms - The Ladder
    Pogavranjen - Jedva Čekam Da Nikad Ne Umrem
    Plateau Sigma - Rituals
    Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool
    Rïcïnn - Lïan
    Skáphe - Skáphe²
    Swans - The Glowing Man
    Vektor - Terminal Redux
    Withered - Grief Relic
    Yugen - Death by Water

    Rotten Sound, Wake, and Weekend Nachos all have solid albums, but grind tends to take a bit longer to sink in. Also, I haven't revisited Katatonia since my first listen—I know that one is going to take some time.

    Looking forward to hearing (including albums that are out that I haven't listened to yet): Blut Aus Nord/Ævangelist; A Dead Forest Index; Dysrhythmia; Inter Arma; Kayo Dot; Mütterlein; Opeth; Sumac; Throane; Wreck and Reference; Wrekmeister Harmonies
