Have been doing some catching up on albums.
New Misery Signals is great, everything I had hoped it would be. In my mind this or Killswitch Engage's Disarm the Descent are likely to be the metalcore album of the year.
Nine Inch Nails - Hesitation Marks has some great tracks but a number feel overly long (bordering on plodding) in my opinion. Looking at you “Various Methods of Escape”, “I Would For You”, and “In Two”. Overall a step up from the last few albums and it is cool to hear more evolution in the NIN sound.
04/05 - Kataklysm, Aborted
04/08 - Carcass, Gorguts, TBDM
04/23 - Behemoth
04/24 - Nile
