I thought it might be a good idea to start a thread where people can recommend 2021 releases that have impressed them thus far.

Here's a few I've been enjoying:

Ad Nauseam - Imperative Imperceptible Impulse (dissonant avante-garde tech death)
http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/album/ad-nauseam/imperative-imperceptible-impulse


Enrapture - Another Green Drought (prog influenced post-metal)

http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/album/enrapture(norway)/another-green-drought


Sweaty Mammoth - low n slow (stoney, clean vocal sludge)

http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/album/sweaty-mammoth/low-n-slow


Devotion - The Harrowing (solid death metal)

http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/album/devotion/the-harrowing


Kaptan Kadavra - Kaptan Kadavra (thrash/groove/sludge fusion)

http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/album/kaptan-kadavra/kaptan-kadavra


Coffin Mulch - Septic Funeral (old school death with a doom influence)

I have sinned beyond repentance

I haven't checked out much yet. 

The new one from Epica, Omega, is very good. 

Lovebites new EP Glory, Glory, To the World is excellent and shows off some interesting sound developments.

And I have high hopes for new releases from Mare Cognitum and Spectral Lore. The former is already out but I've held off from streaming it in anticipation for the CD, which Amazon has slated for an April 2nd release. I have my fingers crossed that they don't fuck either of these up like they did with Uada last year.

Otherwise I'm long overdue checking out some new stuff. I mainly go through what I already have these days and have neglected.

I´ve only listened to and reviewed two 2021 albums so far:

Paradise Lost - "Gothic - Live At Roadburn 2016"
Tribulation - "Where The Gloom Becomes Sound"

I think I´ve lost my interest in Tribulation, although it´s a good quality release, but I can highly recommend the Paradise Lost live album. That´s a great album.

The Ruins of Beverast - The Thule Grimoires

Therion - Leviathan

Just added another to my list:
Kreator - "Under the Guillotine"

It´s a combined best-of and rarities compilation album. Nothing too interesting here, if you already own the first six albums and the "Out of the Dark ... Into the Light (1988)" EP. I´m not that interested in demos and remixes, and the rarity tracks aren´t that interesting either.

The main attraction are the remixed tracks from "Renewal", which are more bottom heavy and guitar driven than the originals.

Yeah I'm holding out on these too. 

I rarely experience the hearing of a new record for the first time when the physical copy is in my hands these days. It's too easy to stream first, even when you've pre-ordered. 

Mare Cognitum is tempting me, especially now that it's on Spotify, but I can hold out a few more days. If Amazon screws up though I'll stream it.

Been listening to it this morning. I gotta say I quite like it. It could be because I'm listening on headphones for a change, but some of those songs sound sharper than usual, remixed, remastered or not.

Maybe it´s because I rate the original version of Renewal so high, so I don´t see a need for a remix. I love how the original sounds. It´s the only Kreator album I still give a spin.
