Reviving this topic with myself:
This year has been very fruitful with metal thus far: new Allagaeon, Latitudes and Rammstein albums, to name a few.
I also found out that Belzebubs comic series had a metal album and some music videos released under their name. Additionally, I got introduced to a progressive black metal band called Kaleikr earlier this year through Latitudes. Good stuff.
Have you found any cool new metal releases this year? I'll probably go through the Latitudes discography again in the next few weeks.
