04:50 - The Maratha Also, black powerfully blending with genres of death, drone, psychedelic, doom, sludge and so on. More or less, this past 2 years there has been a trend of experimentation in metal altogether.
04:44 - The Maratha The problem is that Sludge creepingly blends into heavy, doom, black and death. Look at Roadburn for instance.
03:24 - Marcel Hubregtse SLudge is actually already dead since most bands in that genre are copying each other . Savannah SLudge is doing it and so are the others. If you hear mrore than 6 new sludge bands each months you will notice it.
02:29 - Apothecary Yeah you have a point, that "only old school is real, modern bands suck" mentality is still pretty strong among parts of the metal community though, unfortunately
02:23 - Karlabos but then again most death/thrash/sympho fans are more into older bands and don't follow the new stuff very closely... amongst the new metals arising i still feel sludge is pretty strong
02:17 - Apothecary I still think sludge is far from "the next big trend" lol, that's grossly over-exaggerating its appeal to the average metalhead. More people are into thrash, death, and symphonic type shit before sludge, at least in my area
02:14 - Karlabos yeah, sludge seems to be quite the thing nowadays. still beats the power metal trend from when i was a kid tho
Great list so far, Unhealer. Many of your liked albums happen to coincide with mine, especially Dissona, Diablo Swing Orchestra, and Hail Spirit Noir. I totally forgot about that Akphaezya album, which I've heard nothing but good things about, so I'll have to check that out soon.

Then again, it's not too hard to coincide with your megalist since there are over 150 albums there But yeah, we agree in some highlights of the year.
Thanks, I really suggest you to check Hypno5e also if you haven't, but yeah, check out Akphaezya right away. I think you will like them too.
