Nice- a brand new tea[m]ster list! I haven't checked out too much in 2016, but I wonder what your thoughts might be on the new Headspace album. Lots of brand new things to check out on this list!!!

Also, are you an Aluk Todolo fan? If you haven't heard their newest album Voix, you should check it out. I find it quite interesting.

Headspace is on my hard drive along with others. So much music so little time. I will check out your rec, Aluk Todolo.

I have one for you although it's not officially released yet.

Not sure if you've ever listened to Big Big Train, but they might be up your alley if you like good prog:

Thanks for the rec, listening now. Haven't been around much this summer, busy. I have been keeping up, checking out blogs, etc. I updated my list. Been a great year for metal.

Djent and me don't mix. Although if its's not the focal point and done right it can work. See Sunpocrisy.
Thanks for the rec, I will check it.

For reciprocation, I know I stated MoTA's release is my AOTY. But this is making a hard push at the very end of 2016:

I was really into Anciients' debut album a few years ago and I even saw the band live, but I haven't heard their latest. Thanks for the reminder.

It's like Ulcerate but with more post metal. I agree with you, took me completely by storm. It will definitely be in my top 5 for 2016.
