People,save a place for the new Candiria when it comes out.

I feel like they will never make an album as good as What Doesn't Kill You again.

The one new song I heard was excellent. I have never heard a song with singing, screaming, and rapping vocals all in the same song before. Maybe its been done but I cant remember.

I want to give everything I've heard this year another listen in order to rank them all. I'm guessing that won't happen within the next month, so I hope sometime in January.

2. Wes Borland - Crystal Machete
3. The Black Queen - Fever Daydream
4. Saul Williams - MartyrLoserKing
5. Iggy Pop - Post Pop Depression
6. Emma Ruth Rundle - Marked For Death
7. Savages - Adore Life

11. Deftones - Gore
12. Black Mountain - IV
13. Death Grips - Bottomless Pit
14. Before the Flood - Original Soundtrack
15. Massive Attack - Ritual Spirit
16. Steven WIlson - 4 1/2
17. Banks - The Altar
18. O'Brother - Endless Light
19. Regina Spektor - Remember Us to Life
20. Night Verses - Into the Vanishing Light
21. Helms Alee - Stillicide
22. Violent Soho - WACO
23. Lie - Truth and Consequences
24. Nice as Fuck - Nice as Fuck
25. White Lung - Paradise

 

This is all very clearly subject to lots of change (still waiting on NIN 2016) but this is a good tentative class of 25. Really fucking good year for music, I thought everything on here was at least very good, and I look forward to catching up with the litany of stuff I missed next year, as I did this year with so many great finds that released albums in 2015 like Chelsea Wolfe, Noveller, Le Butcherettes, Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes, and plenty others.

I have been a major slacker this year with listening to new stuff - I've gotten into podcasts lately so it's cut into new music listening. And my new job is harder to listen to music at work than my previous. But this is what I have for 2016 so far. I want to go back to a lot of what I've missed.

Devour the Day - S.O.A.R.

From Ashes To New - Day One
Bastille - Wild World

Bad Suns - Disappear Here

Normandie - Inguz

Dayshell - Nexus

Highly Suspect - The Boy Who Died Wolf

Sixx AM - Prayers of the Damned (Vol1)

Letlive. - if I’m the Devil

OneRepublic - Oh My My

Chevelle - The North Corridor

Wovenwar - Honor is Dead

Twelve Foot Ninja - Outlier

Hands Like Houses - Dissonants

Tremonti - Dust

Gemini Syndrome - Momento Memori
