  • Great list…. but missing quite a bit of amazing releases on the more metal side of things.. a few suggestions.

    Wilderun – “Epigone” (Epic/orchestral progressive death, FFO Haken/Opeth)

    Rolo Tomassi – “Where Myth Becomes Memory” (Full sounding Tech death with a bit of -core influences. Devin Townsend meets Dillinger Escape Plan)

    Persefone – “Metatonia” (very spacey Progressive Death. BTBAM meets Tool and Floyd)

    Amorphis – “Halo” (More Melodic Death than Prog Death… but it hits on some of those progressive notes well enough)

    Hath – “All that was Promised” (FFO bands like Black Crown Initiate, or Rivers of Nihil. Halfway between Progressive Death and Tech Death)

    Hallas – “Isle of Wisdom” (My one non Metal suggestion. Very Uriah Heep/Wishbone Ash influenced heavy Prog rock…. A must check out band)

    White Ward – “False Light” (A mix of Post-Black and Progressive Black Metal. FFO: Agalloch/Enslaved/Ihsahn/Borknagar).

    Also, strong HM to “Vaxis Pt.2” from
    Coheed and Cambria. I know a lot of people aren’t digging the shorter poppier tracks… but they’re catchy as hell… and those last 3 tracks go real hard. Great album IMO.
