The new Hatebreed is the only record I've thought was great so far this year. New Coheed and Cambria is pretty good as well, but nothing else has been anything too special. I have the new Suffocation and Within the Ruins that I plan on checking out in the next few days. There are a lot of releases I'm stoked on coming out later in the year so I have no doubt this year will be excellent, it just hasn't been that great so far.
