1. Crystal Fairy - Crystal Fairy
2. Cherry Glazerr - Apocalipstick
3. Mastodon - Emperor of Sand
4. Noveller - A Pink Sunset for No One
5. Blackfield - Blackfield V
6. Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes - Modern Ruin
7. Methyl Ethel - Everything is Forgotten

First and last are pretty solid, I think, but everything else is tentative and will likely move around a lot before the year is over.

For best song, I'm inclined to go with "Neon Rust" off the Frank Carter record:

Anticipation station:
- Queens of the Stone Age
- Nine Inch Nails
- Queen Kwong
- Steven Wilson
- At the Drive-In
- The Dillinger Escape Plan (reported Dissociation b-sides record)
- St. Vincent
- Kanye West
- Le Butcherettes (maybe)
- Deafheaven (maybe)
- Chelsea Wolfe
- Dead Cross
- Marriages (maybe)
- Mutoid Man
- Eminem
- Death Grips, probably

Mastodon at #1.Black Map at #2. Starset at #3. Life of Agony at #4. Greywind at #5. Body Count at #6. Havok at # 7. Chrysalis at #8. The Charm The Fury at #9. The Raven Age at #10.

No Demon Hunter or Art of Anarchy. I liked them but was somewhat disappointed with them.

SOTY is 'Wake Up' from Havok. I listened to it over and over again. Very much like old school Megadeth. The riffing and the vocals are insane. 'Run Rabbit Run' from Black Map is an honorable mention as well as 'Heads Will Hang' from Fit for an Autopsy. 'Show Yourself' from Mastodon right there as well.

Didn't know these were coming out until I saw your post. I just looked up and saw Bleachers is out in less than two weeks! Awesome. 

We have a lot of similar music tastes, Starset is my undisputed #1 and I'm looking forward to the above 4 albums. :)

1.  While She Sleeps-You Are We

This one really surprised me.  I'm not really into the heavier bands these days, but they caught my attention.  There's enough melody to keep it interesting.  It's politically themed lyric wise.  The instrumentation is great.  I'm really surprised this album hasn't gotten more of a mention here.  

2. As Lions-Selfish Age

I played this album for two weeks straight.   Very catchy and good songs.

3. Starset-Vessels

Another one I've listened to a lot.  

4. Incubus-8

I love me some Incubus, they haven't sounded this good in years.

5. Carousel Kings-Charm City

Upon first listen I didn't think I'd like them, but I was surprised by the end.  

Albums I need more time with:

Backwordz-Veracity

Demon Hunter- Outlive

Art of Anarchy-Madness

Black Map-In Droves 

Dead Horse Trauma-Life

Danger Kids-Blacklist
