Best of 2019 thus far?

Recommended Posts

As many know I don't track all the new picks and fan fave's every year. Give me some random backwoods one off every day of the week.

 

That said for the best record of 2019 that no one will ever hear or give 2 squirts about is from Vitne and its entitle Aria.

After getting surprisingly large amounts of joy from their 2017 album, 'Jupiter' I was actually quite hopeful about the new album this year. Gotta say, I was pretty disappointed. I'm not a fan. 'Our way' was the closest they got to recapturing some of the magic of the last album, but overall it fell very flat for me. 

I shouldn't be disappointed, though, as I've always quite disliked this band. 'Jupiter' was the diamond in the rough, for me, rather than something that should be expected every time. For the record, I didn't love that album, but it surprised me with some good stuff on it.

Color me impressed that anyone has put any thought into Joseph's stuff. Of course I may be biased but I've enjoyed his journey from Golden Palace to SEKS to Hart to Vitne. He is a talented dude and for me the latest effort is a powerful all encompassing piece and continues to show his progression in song writing and story telling.

I think they identify as "queer." 

The looks one of the guitarists was giving me during their show would suggest she's not decidedly one way.

Could it be she thought you were a woman?

Has it ever been implied that I'm a man?

They saved the year ( + Crazy Lixx, I'd never  picture that cd (Serafino , when will you release it on vinyl? :angry:) with the luscious vinyls and Pretty Maids-need to unbox that soon and spin it!)!

I'm just now starting my in-depth listening for the "Best of 2019" awards, listening through all the albums that I initially rated as 4.5/5 or 5/5, and starting to winnow down the field.

I'm going to do the "Guess Dan's Top 5" like we've done the last 2 years since it was fun.

The group of contenders includes some of the usual suspects, but there's also some that have received virtually no discussion here on the board. No off-the-wall death metal bagpipe polka bands... at least not yet. ;)

It's an ok year overall, but not stellar. No standout releases towering head and shoulders above the rest IMO.

Yeah, it is truth. In another thread I had WOA ranked down near the end of my top 30, but those 30 weren't worlds apart from top to bottom.

    • Uhh... have you seen the slate of releases for early 2020? Shits all over 2019.
    • Not so fast my friend. Hold on a minute...... Without a single noteworthy release in 2020 out yet, these are ridiculous proclamations! 
    • Fap fap fap fap fap... 2020 could wind up being the very year for releases that 2019 wasn't.
    • Mediocre song, mediocre vocals.  Guy sounds like a lesser version of about seven different singers.
    • Yep, that's a good start.
    • I dig that song.  Want to hear more.
    • Yeaaah...I hate that solo.  For me, the second half of that song is awful.  The first is off the charts great.  That signature riff?  Incredible.  But when it slows down, it dies.
    • Paul  mixes both Wicked and Radio Sun, Steve features in both. Don't if he got digs down here, it mainly Melbourne where he based .Also he might come down to get a suntan (lol).  
    • From facebook: ”THE DARK DELIGHT” out on April 3rd! Swedish melodic metal band DYNAZTY to release new album ”THE DARK DELIGHT” on April 3rd. First single ”PRESENCE OF MIND” out on January 30th. Formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 2008, DYNAZTY has since released 6 albums in a mere 10 year window.  Straying from their early days of 80’s influenced Hardrock, the band has developed and refined their sound into something that merges the modern metal scene with the past, crafting something wholly unique. Today the band is comprised of highly respected and sought after musicians, active on the metal scene in more than one way. Bassist Jonathan Olsson can also be seen in both LINDEMANN and PAIN, guitarist Love Magnusson and drummer Georg Härnsten Egg frequently tours with rock legends such as DEE SNIDER and JOE LYNN TURNER. Guitarist Mikael Lavér has been featured with both LINDEMANN and JOE LYNN TURNER, while singer Nils Molin can be heard and seen around the globe with the ever rising star of fellow Swedish band AMARANTHE. DYNAZTY are now on April 3rd set to release their biggest and most engrossing album yet - ”THE DARK DELIGHT”. Singer Nils Molin says about the album: ”We pulled out all the stops, pulled no punches and held nothing back on this one. ”THE DARK DELIGHT” is the complete vision of what this band has always wanted to be”.   Spearheaded by the first single/music video ”PRESENCE OF MIND”, DYNAZTY enters the new decade with a bang. The single and music video of PRESENCE OF MIND will be released on all platforms on January 30th. ”PRESENCE OF MIND showcases the raw nature of our band and is just the kind of groovy and melodic onslaught of a song we always wanted to release as a first single”.
