I just picked up the new Epica album, 'The Quantum Enigma'

I need to give it a couple of more listens, but this may be their best album yet. My past favorite has been 'Design Your Universe'

I'm not a huge Epica fan, but I do think that they've gotten much better since the addition of guitarist Isaac Delahaye. All 3 albums he's been on have been pretty good, much better than the previous stuff.

I still like Epica better as a live band, because it strips away all of those choir-like choruses that they do on the albums (which are generally too over-the-top, imo).

I don't really know how to answer that. Wink

It does help though that I get a lot of given to me for free from the labels and promoters. 

Actually, the list is the reviewed albums only. The actual number of albums I've heard released this year is 60 exactly.

I've only played each once. Mastodon was quite impressive and Opeth's may need a few listens to sink in. I expect I'll cover both of those sooner rather than later.

So far I've gotten:

Alcest - Shelter
Delain - The Human Contradiction
Distorted Harmony - Chain Reaction
Eluveitie - Origins
Epica - The Quantum Enigma
Iced Earth - Plagues Of Babylon
Sonata Arctica - Pariah's Child
Stream Of Passion - A War Of Our Own
Teramaze - Esoteric Symbolism
Vanden Plas - Chronicles Of The Immortals
Vanishing Point - Distant Is The Sun
Within Temptation - Hydra

So far, I like every single one of those albums, but not one of them would I consider a 'great' album.

Out of all of them I'd probably have to pick the Teramaze as my album of the year so far. Some very cool riffing and oh-so slightly proggy. Not much is left of their thrash-metal sound, but it's still pretty cool regular metal Smile

I love the new Within Temptation album as well, though in my personal opinion it isn't quite as good as 2011's 'The Unforgiving'.

I've got the new Opeth and the latest Insomnium on the way thru the mail, and am looking forward to the new Threshold and the new Evergrey.
