From Vesta Collide comes a bursting and driving song, The Lights.
From Starset comes a nice electrometalcore (Did I just coin a new word?) number, Frequency.
Check out these songs and stay tuned for more updates as the year picks up in volume.
So, apparently a few members from Ne Obliviscaris have put together an instrumental progressive metal album, Sunyata, under the band name Vipassi.
Check it out! Maybe start with Jove—it’s the most popular track from the album on Apple Music right now.
Check out this band I just discovered on Apple Music!
I’m really digging The Lights, but I Can’t Sleep is trending on Apple Music.
I really like this album so far. Impressive. Most impressive.
Check out this band I just discovered! It’s electronic melodic metal.
Top song on Apple Music right now is Monster.
Well, what are you waiting for? Go give it a listen! Then let me know which one you would put in a Best of 2017 playlist 🙂
The Agonist has produced their fifth album, Five.
My favorite song is the album opener, The Moment.
The most popular song on this album, however, is the cover of Take Me to Church.
What’s your favorite song from this album?
I recently discovered Dark Tranquility. It’s a darker band than my usual choice, but this album, Atoma, is not bad at all.
Have you checked it out? What are your favorite songs?
