  1. Distant Worlds V: more music from FINAL FANTASY
    by Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY
    Searching for Friends (FINAL FANTASY VI) Searching for Friends (FINAL FANTASY VI)
    Having had the privilege of being at the first Distant Worlds concert in Stockholm, I've followed each of these releases religiously. While this one digs further into the series than I'm familiar with (after FFXII), the arrangements are always fantastic and I am particularly in love with the arrangement of "Searching for Friends" from FFVI and the new version of the Opera (though the Swedish Baritone from DW was better). All-in-all, this is an excellent addition to the Distant Worlds series.
  2. A New World: intimate music from FINAL FANTASY - Volume 2
    by A New World: intimate music from FINAL FANTASY
    Tower of the Magi (FINAL FANTASY II) Tower of the Magi (FINAL FANTASY II)
    A New World is probably my favorite iteration of the Final Fantasy orchestral music series. I love the chamber orchestra sound—it's lush and detailed and it translates to record better than a full orchestra. Furthermore, the choice of songs to work with is fantastic and the choices on the first volume were inspired and Vol. 2 doesn't disappoint. "Tower of Magi," "A Place to Call Home," and "Selbina" are special standouts.
  3. WONDERLAND
    by ACRID
    Deception's Masquerade Deception's Masquerade
    Acrid evokes the analogy of a boxer for me: float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. This record shows remarkable alacrity with songs that work their way through groove, thrash, grind or Maiden-y guitar solos. Its tracks are dexterous, catchy and fun. My favorite straight up melodeath from 2018.
  4. And All Will Be Desolation
    by Allfather
  5. The Labour Division
    by The Aphelion
  6. The Banner Saga 3
    by Austin Wintory
  7. Sleep at the Edge of the Earth
    by Wilderun
    "Like so many things that I absolutely adore, Wilderun lives in the best of many worlds, balancing orchestral, epic metal with folky strains and wandering—with a gusto—into black metal territory, or even thrashy melodeath. Sleep at the Edge of Earth exists in some kind of beautiful Angry Metal Guy goldilocks-zone, making music tailored for me to get gushy over."
  8. This Ruined World
    by Trials
    Beat the System to Death Beat the System to Death
    "This Ruined World is an excellent record. The songs on here are razor sharp, tightly edited, written to be dense, technical, and immense—and it’s the balance Trials strikes between chugging intensity, harmony, dissonance and a fine understanding of dynamics in all the right places which makes this album stand out. Trials are unapologetically interested in cutting the bullshit and writing great songs."
  9. Conduit
    by King Goat
    Revenants Revenants
    It’s special that King Goat came out of nowhere, unsigned and unheralded, with an album full of gripping songs. More impressive still, few debut albums are as artistically focused and coherent as Conduit. Great.

    by Be'lakor
  22. The Haruspex
    by Gomorrah
    Cerulean Cerulean
    These thirty minutes of spine crushing metal push all the right buttons for me: brutal, infectious, and concise.

    Remember when black metal felt dangerous and fresh? Batushka remembers.

    Excellent.
  26. Heart of Akamon
    by Nechochwen
  27. In the Shadow of Swords
    by Trials
    Upon This Day Upon This Day
    "In the Shadow of Swords is a triumph of riffing and songwriting and deserves to be considered as one of the best records of 2013. It flows from open to close, and feels like a complete album—a rarity in the age of iTunes shuffle."

    The Red Wings (FINAL FANTASY IV) The Red Wings (FINAL FANTASY IV)
    A New World's arrangements and performances are deft and moving, despite not having the clout of the full orchestral treatment. The intimate feel gives "Town," "Zanarkand," and "The Dark World" beautiful renditions, while also adding a different flare and minimalistic feel to pieces like "One Winged Angel" and "The Decisive Battle." A brilliant concept.

  42. V - Halmstad
    by Shining
    Ytterligare Ett Steg Närmare Total Jävla Utfrysning Ytterligare Ett Steg Närmare Total Jävla Utfrysning
    "Halmstad" is Shining's magnum opus. It's sad to see them peak like this, but it's nice that Kvalforth got some help.
  43. Dødsfest!
    by BEATEN TO DEATH
    True Norwegian Internet Metal Warrior True Norwegian Internet Metal Warrior
    When Jordan Campbell reviewed these guys and I saw the cover I had sort of a “WTF?” moment. Then I listened to it. Beaten to Death‘s particular approach to grind surprised me, excited me, and led me to purchase the record immediately. The unusual tone, the use of melody, and the counterintuitive extremity all introduced something that I had never really heard before and it’s so, so good.
  44. Messe I.X-VI.X
    by Ulver
    Son of man Son of man
    Ulver is a band that has gone through stages that I have liked more or less. And as devoted as I am to their old stuff, I think that Messe I.X-VI.X might be one of their best works ever.
