1. The Foreshadowing - Second World
The new kings of melancholy. Fantastic atmosphere and the best voice of the genre?
2. Alcest - Les voyages de l'âme
Metalgaze.Not their best, but still simply beautiful music.
3. Les Discrets - Ariettes Oubliées...
Metalgaze. Great album, for lovers of Alcest, vocals have improved considerably
4. Ne Obliviscaris - Portal Of I
Progressive Extreme Metal.Showcase in virtuosity and atmosphere, simply great
5. Moonspell - Omega White
Goth Rock. Should be the main album. Vintage goth, almost of Irreligious class
6. Sybreed - God Is An Automaton
Cyber Metal. Still evaluating. Harder,groove and progression around every corner
7. Dead Can Dance - Anastasis
World Music/Neo Classical. Beautiful, the male voice sounds like how Jim Morrison would today
8. Atoma - Skylight
Atmospheric Metal. Still working on this, still growing. Wide mix of genres, but the atmosphere is constant
9. Bleeding Through - The Great Fire
Dimmuborgir-Core. Right in your face, bombastic as hell. Short and sweet.
10. Moonloop - Deeply from the earth
Progressive Death. A excellent brew, draught from extracts of Opeth, Gojira and Death.
11. Anathema - Weather Systems
Atmospheric Rock. Still haunting, still massive , but there is something unredeemed as well
12. Swallow The Sun - Emerald Forest And The Blackbird
Still delivering, but this time they forgot to cut off the dead meat
13. Fear Factory - The Industrialist
Cyber Metal. Great-until they decide to stop the album 2 songs too early. Short changed!!
14. El Caco - Hatred, Love & Diagrams
Stoner/Alternative Metal. Groovy and heavy but with a melodic chorus sensibility
15. Saturnian - Dimensions
Symphonic Black Metal. Kind of off this genre, but this is how it should be done
16. Borknagar - Urd
Epic Black Metal. Very strong vocal line-up this time, best album since Quintessence
