21:48 - 3rdWorld Unearthly good stuff. Vocals and songwriting couldn't be any better. Reminds me of Protest The Hero/Mastodon but much more fun than either of those. [link]
21:13 - !J.O.O.E.! Totally forgot what that album even sounds like lel. I think I recall it being good though.
21:12 - 3rdWorld I know this is something Joe shared in last year recs thread. But seriously, this is one of the best fucking album titles I've come across. Artwork isn't shabby either. Very epic-y. [link]
21:09 - Netzach Duck me sideways, Bölzer's new shared track is awesome: [link] (submitted it as news too)
21:07 - 3rdWorld Very nice. But sounds a bit dry to me could've used some cymbals. Or Maybe thats the desolate sound they were going for.
21:06 - !J.O.O.E.! Actually a release from last year but oh well.
21:00 - !J.O.O.E.! Immense funeral / death-doom [link] feels like this year was sorely in need of something like this.
What a coincidence I noticed this list while listening to Watching From A Distance. Before clicking on it, I immediately thought Patrick Walker should be in it. I have yet to hear another vocalist who has an even more emotional voice than that guy, damn. While I don't know some of these vocalists I definitely agree with the ones I do know, so good job.
Then it would be a top 13. Although these two easily beat John Haughm and Daniel Brennare in my opinion. Lastly, I might be wrong here, but doesn't Thomas Helm do the clean vocals in Empyrium? He does them in Noekk at least, but haven't listened to Empyrium in months so I could be wrong.
