Landmine Marathon - Gallows

Landmine Marathon is one of the most badass death metal bands around today. Granted, they worship Bolt Thrower a bit too much, but they're much more modern-sounding, and they've got a bit of their own sound as well. If you've never listened to them before, I'd urge you to check them out immediately.

Anyway, on to the album. At first listen I was a bit disappointed. No memorable songs or anything. It felt like they were going in the absolutely same direction (not necessarily a bad thing) but not pushing themselves at all. It took several more listens but it's finally warmed up to me. There are a couple memorable songs, actually. However, it is important to note that this album is still nowhere near as good as their previous album, Sovereign Descent.
Get the fuck out, Gallows is easily their best album yet. The production is raw but clear, and there are no filler songs. Kudos to having it on the list though, as someone previously stated the album has been pretty much ignored by most people's lists.
