Beartooth – The Surface - Metalcore

Beartooth’s "The Surface" is a masterclass in the fusion of poppy punk elements with the infectious hooks of modern rock. The album boasts an energetic momentum, weaving between aggressive guitar riffs and anthemic choruses that pull at the heartstrings. Caleb Shomo’s distinct vocals demonstrate a passionate delivery, allowing listeners to feel every ounce of emotion poured into each track.

Body Void – Atrocity Machine - Doom/Sludge

Immersing listeners into a world of oppressive sludge and doom, "Atrocity Machine" is nothing short of a sonic monolith. The dense, heavy guitar tones paired with the suffocating atmosphere create a sense of unease, which is exactly what the band aims to achieve. Despite its weighty sound, the album showcases moments of vulnerability, making it a deeply introspective journey through the shadowy corners of human existence.

††† (Crosses) – Goodnight, God Bless, I Love U, Delete - Art Rock

Dripping in atmospheric layers, this album is a labyrinth of soundscapes that straddle the line between electronic and rock. The hypnotic beats combined with the shimmering synthesizers create a dreamscape for listeners. Chino Moreno's haunting vocals float through the mix, and the songwriting is as poetic as it is mysterious. It's an album that beckons one to drift into its embrace and get lost in its depths.

Creeper – Sanguivore - Gothic Punk

"Sanguivore" sees Creeper at their theatrical best, crafting songs that are equal parts dramatic and musically rich. Channeling the spirits of gothic punk and rock opera, the band takes listeners on a roller-coaster of emotions. With vivid storytelling and bombastic instrumentation, it's an album that feels like a dark theatrical play set to music.

Private Mind – The Truth You See – Hardcore

As a raw representation of hardcore, "The Truth You See" is an adrenaline-packed journey from start to finish.

Twin Temple – God Is Dead - Doo-wop

A beautifully blasphemous blend of doo-wop rhythms with dark, satanic themes. "God Is Dead" is an audacious project that challenges genre norms. Alexandra James' velvety vocals provide a stark contrast to the occult-inspired lyrics, creating an album that's both eerie and enchanting. It's a refreshing take on retro styles, making Twin Temple one of the most intriguing acts in recent years.
