Trevor Strnad: "I think they looked at me and said 'hell, if that dude can do this, then why can't we?"

2018 has felt a little like a game changer. Like something is building and amounting to something. There has been a lot of good music coming out and it feels like a lot better music to come as well. Bands are developing and thriving in a way that can get you excited for music and Metal once again. It's been quite hard to get this list down to 10 but here are my personal picks for the top albums of the year!

In hindsight, 2018 hasn’t been a particularly positive year. Leading on from the events of previous years, it’s been yet another twelve months of equal socioeconomic downfall and upheaval, with the times yet to come only continuing on this global downward spiral. Yet, with this in mind, this has proven to be the catalyst for an incredible year of music; potentially the best year for the music scene as a whole for some time. In turn, this only mak...

10. Frozen Crown – Kings
A dark horse in the room echoes in the momentous halls of the highest ‘Kings’, Frozen Crown are a Italian power metal quintet sharply commanding the metal masses with their soulfully fresh and catchy melodic metal; honouring the forefathers of heavy metal through their commitment taking their own crown and throne into battle before entering a modern void. ‘Kings’ maybe something that is honestly familiar, however this a h...

Following on from the first half of our list, (You can read part one here!) we continue to look at the bands who have made the biggest impact this year and have well and truly conquered our national scene. 


Imagine making a list of all the bands that have dominated the scene this year and not including Conjurer. Whilst rumblings of their impending breakthrough where felt not long after the release of their debut EP in 2016, the group...

Another year, another selection of awesome and weird music. Once again, here’s my end-of-year countdown of some of the albums that have caught my eye over the last 12 months. It’s less folk-oriented than in previous years, with a heavy focus on the political that has dominated many releases of the year, but hopefully there’s a fun and diverse selection with something everyone will appreciate. Before we get started, there’s also three runners up t...

On the face of it, Connecticut based metalcore band Currents don’t seem like a band worthy of much attention. Most new listeners would probably go into their first experience with the outfit assuming them to be yet another metalcore band that have all the drop Z breakdowns you ask for, but do very little to move the scene forward. 

Whilst they aren’t exactly introducing anything new to the progressive metalcore genre, Currents proved on their debu...

Since reforming in 2016 Swedish Doom machines Mourning Sign are set to release their latest, heaviest and if anything slightly more prog sounding doom venture Contra Mordum. The first release since the bands departure from the scene in 1997 making this release filled with a sense of headbanging nostalgia and enough new tricks up their sleeves to really show that Mourning Sign are back and are as strong as ever.

The album opens with track ‘Dualism’...

New to making headways on the scenes of all things that go beyond Metal, Crevassian are an English quartet of post Metal atmospheres. Their instrumental approach to Metal has been grouped up into their debut EP, also entitled Crevassian. This marks a next crucial step for the band and may well build up a reputation for the band.

The four tracks of sheer atmospheres, echo the moods of sentimental and heavy guitar playing. For it is in the long and...
