    Between Sleipnir's Breaths Between Sleipnir's Breaths
    I think that toning down the edgy metal kitsch helps this album being seen just for its musical value without losing Sunn's DNA.

  5. The Great Key
    by Känguin
    Rapidograph Rapidograph
    Strongest output by Känguin so far. Very playful shoe-gazy post-rock that playfully grazes a variety of genres while still managing to keep the band's distinct sound which may be described as a funky mix of Russian Circles and Somali Yacht Club. Also an amazing live act, highly recommended
  6. ERIKA JANE
    by coucou chloe
    stamina stamina
    Not as out there as Eartheater, yet more experimental and grittier than Lolina. Outstanding EP, highly recommended
  7. MÄNNERFREUNDSCHAFTEN UND METAPHYSIK
    by Sankt Otten & N
    Heile Welt Heile Welt
    N benefits from the rhythm, Sankt Otten benefit from the full, layered complexity, a perfect match!

    by LINGUA IGNOTA
    WOE TO ALL (ON THE DAY OF MY WRATH) WOE TO ALL (ON THE DAY OF MY WRATH)
    This is wild. Maximum bleakness, maximum grimness, and it is done really well. I did not expect such a desolate, yet graceful ride, Hayter really knows her craft. Highly recommended.
  10. es taut
    by Soldat Hans
    Schoner zerbirst, Part II Schoner zerbirst, Part II
    Very solid successor to Dress Rehearsal, both share the same genome, so no surprises; it's elaborate enough to feed from that distinct sound for a while, since no one sounds like Soldat Hans. Highly recommended, the release concert was nice as well.

    I've always appreciated Bolts drony, rhythmless sound, but there is only so much you can do without repeating yourself. The addition of a drummer is a massive stylistic change while still evolving their signature sound. To me, this is in fact their best work so far: good old Bolt, but now with quite some punch, highly relistenable. Occasionally reminiscent of Kodiak. Very nice work.

  16. Dress Rehearsal
    by Soldat Hans
    Meine Liebste; Sie zerbricht sich Meine Liebste; Sie zerbricht sich
    Wow. This is music I've unconsciously been waiting for for a long time. Starts out like Bohren, meanders like GYBE and culminates like Neurosis while copying none of those.

    I am really puzzled and sad that I missed out on these guys since 2014(!). This might be a favorite for a very long time.
  17. Ode To The Flame
    by MANTAR
    Era Borealis Era Borealis
    My expectations were pretty high and while it's not a let-down at all, it remains an unsurprising sequel to Death By Burning. Solid record.
  18. RAMA
    by RAMA
    Liquid Eternity Liquid Eternity
    RAMA achieve a really nice blend of stoner rock (while avoiding cocky obtrusiveness) and post-rock (while avoiding to be pretentiously overblown). It simply excels at being really well balanced. The mood spread by these three songs is quite infectious as well. Very nice record!
  19. Holon : Agnosie
    by The Hirsch Effekt
    Bezoar Bezoar
    Holon: Agnosie incorporates everything you'd expect from THE, which probably is a lot.
    "Bezoar" sounds like Electrocution 250 meets Mr Bungle (California style) meets Fantomas, all of which stand out for being usually tagged with superlatives themselves. Funny, catchy and extreme. This is probably the most diverse song on this album and probably my favourite.
    Also: nice 1/16th shift on the super-catchy "Athesie" and the self-referential nod to Holon: Hiberno's Epistel on "Cotard".
  20. Death By Burning
    by MANTAR
    White Nights White Nights
    Yet another guitar/drum combo, and it's refreshingly good: very nice blackish doom metal with vocals that have an undeniable punk edge. Neither black metal nor punk are things i'm particularly fond of, but this really works for me.

    Oh, by the way: it's nice to hear a cowbell once in a while in this genre :-)

  25. Toner Low
    by Toner Low
    Grass Grass
    Stoner rock in general is pretty generic, but Toner Low succeed to stand out by reducing their sound to the bare minimum: the music is absolutely simple, almost dull. Furthermore, Toner Low are really slow and raw. While their sound is almost like the archetype for the genre of stoner rock or stoner metal, their pure and minimal approach is what makes them really stand out.
