Came across this album through the 2017 Best Of Metalcore Apple Music Playlist.
Check it out!
I don’t know how I missed it in 2017, but this instrumental prog metal album is groovy, jazzy, and down right classy. Give it a go!
One of my favorite albums is Blackout. Every song is exceptional. These ones are trending on Apple Music:
My favorite has been No Peace due to its beautifully slow start and then it picks up so quickly before ending somewhat abruptly–leaving me to want more. I featured it in my From Mercy to War playlist.
The songs are deep, the music very well-written; the vocals are riveting. It’s an easy album to listen to all the way through in one sitting, which I would highly encourage.
Have you listened to Blackout yet? Do you have any favorite songs from this album?
Thanks to Apple Music, I discoveredWe Exist Even Dead On new music Thursday. This band just released Eventide. Two songs are trending on Apple Music, Unlimited and White Lotus.
Admittedly, those songs are really good, but I favor and have added The Swarm to the Metalistics’ Best Of 2018 Playlist.
Have you heard this album? What do you think of it, and which songs are you rocking?
Since 2015, I have assembled an annual Best Of Metal Playlist, featuring the best song of an artist’s album from that year as I deem worthy. It’s now time to start this year’s playlist, only now I am branding it. Check back throughout the year as this playlist will update often. Add it to your Apple Music library to get the updates automatically!
- Lantern, by Sleeping Giant
- On The Inside, by Of Mice & Men
- Screaming at The Sun, by Machine Head
- The Swarm, by We Exist Even Dead
One of the albums I was looking forward to in 2018, actually the only one, was Catharsis. Machine Head released it Friday. And it is heavy, hard hitting, and thought provoking. These songs are all trending on Apple Music:
- Beyond the Pale
In fact, this album is currently #3 on the iTunes top metal charts.
I favored and added Screaming at the Sun to the Metalistics’ Best Of 2018 (https://itunes.apple.com/us/playlist/metalistics-best-of-2018/pl.u-06oxxAbsWWyKXW).
Which songs are you jamming from this album?
Thanks to Apple Music and New Music Thursday Night, I stumbled upon Sleeping Giant. They released a new album, I Am. Christian or not, this album is worth a listen. As of the time of this writing, the album is #13 on the top metal charts on iTunes.
Several songs are trending on Apple Music:
- Preachcore Lives!
- Second Chance Kids
- No Love
My favorite is Lantern, which I have added to the Metalistics’ Best Of 2018 Playlist (https://itunes.apple.com/us/playlist/metalistics-best-of-2018/pl.u-06oxxAbsWWyKXW).
Give the album a listen and check it out for yourself!
