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 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.

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.

Baest - Necro Sapiens
Memoriam - To The End
Cannibal Corpse - Violence Unimagined (just arrived yesterday but loving it already).

Gothic metal
Tribulation - Where The Gloom Becomes Sound

Heavy metal 
Accept - Too Mean To Die

Crossover thrash
Enforced - Kill Grid 

Hard rock
The Dead Daisies - Holy Ground (probably my album of the year so far).
Alice Cooper - Detroit Stories (his best in years).

Prog metal
Iotunn - Access All Worlds

Paul, I agree regarding the new effort from Cannibal Corpse. A strong release upon the first listen. I shall definitely be purchasing that one.

Metal wise there hasn't been much yet for me. The new Ra album was pretty good, though a step down from their last album as it's missing their usual Egyptian/Middle-Eastern influences. New Annalynn was good too.

Electronic wise though? This year kicks ass and might be even better than last year. One of my favorites is the new DJ Rozwell album, which I could see appealing to some fellow sludge metal fans with Rozwell's heavy and noisy production:

(It's name your price on Bandcamp btw)

To not go too off topic, there's an electronic music thread here, curious what some of your favorite artists are: https://www.metalmusicarchives.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=12558&title=electronic-music-appreciation-thread

I can give several recommendations of great electronic albums I've been enjoying lately.

Vektor/Cryptosis - "Transmissions of Chaos": Nice split this one, which shows a new side of Vektor that I really enjoy. Gone are the annoying high pitched screaming vocals...finally.

I´ve also listened to the debut album by Frozen Soul titled "Crypt of Ice", which is a strongly Bolt Thrower influenced affair. Great album if you enjoy that style of death metal.

Recently listened to these two bands, easily my favorite metal releases so far this year:

http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/album/purity-nv/animus%28ep%29" rel="nofollow - https://www.metalmusicarchives.com/album/purity-nv/animus(ep)

Nu metal with metalcore and melodic alt metal elements, and some electronic touches. Love their cover of Prodigy's Breathe, I think I like it more than the original.

http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/album/silenus/the-garden-is-burning%28ep%29" rel="nofollow - https://www.metalmusicarchives.com/album/silenus/the-garden-is-burning(ep)

Sludgy metalcore with a raw Crowbar-esque approach to melody. Massive sound with some great atmosphere.

Based on the that, I think you'll enjoy this bit of UK mathcore which amongst others is a contender for AOTY so far for me.

Those who like a bit of crossover thrash will probably enjoy Forever Fire by Honey (need adding here which I'll do later this week when I have more time). 

It's excellent but only seems to be available on vinyl at the moment which is fine with me but don't fancy paying £32 shipping on top of the cost of the LP. If anyone comes across anywhere selling it at a more reasonable shipping cost I'd be interested to know.

Some new tech death I've been on recently.  For my taste, its a bit too excessive with the shredding in parts as I much prefer the more angular and dissonant side of tech death but it's undeniably an impressive release that I think a few here would enjoy greatly.

Dull and uninspired? No. Grab you by the balls and make you pay attention? No. Probably not top 5 of the year for me, but it will make my top 30.

I don't think it's near as good as Book of Souls, but I like it. Problem is, I don't love it. It might be a slow burn - A Matter of Life and Death was, and I think that's excellent now.

I find it quite subtly brilliant personally. Takes a few listens to to get a feel for it as well. I also find that the songs flow together really well. I don't think I'll end up regarding it as high as The Book of Souls though.

You're a braver man than me. That descriptions an 'ah hell no' moment for me.

Dull and uninspired? No. Grab you by the balls and make you pay attention? No. Probably not top 5 of the year for me, but it will make my top 30.

I don't think it's near as good as Book of Souls, but I like it. Problem is, I don't love it. It might be a slow burn - A Matter of Life and Death was, and I think that's excellent now. 

I find it quite subtly brilliant personally. Takes a few listens to to get a feel for it as well. I also find that the songs flow together really well. I don't think I'll end up regarding it as high as The Book of Souls though. 


The only song I really like is "The Writing on the Wall". The rest to me is a blur of slow- to mid paced slow building tracks (even the fastest parts on the album lack punch and power), which I have a hard time remembering anything from and I don´t like the sound production either. Shirley is the wrong choice of producer for Maiden if you ask me. Mind you this is still Maiden of couse, which means I still think the album is solid (which speaks volumes of the greatness of Maiden that an uninspired and dull offering is still a solid effort), but I don´t hear the excellence that some people hear. My review is written and ready to be posted, but I´ll give the album a few more spinds before posting, to see if my opinion changes. It seldom does though. My first impression is usually the one I still have years down the line with most releases...

I quite enjoy it, but it's definitely not my favorite post-2000 Maiden album. I do miss some faster songs - just one or two would have been nice. Still, there are a lot of things I enjoy on this album, such as the riff that kucks in after the intro of 'Days of Future Past' and the kind of sailor jig style guitar melody thst appears @3:58 in 'The Time Machine'. The title track is very cool with the taiko-inspired drums and all that. But yeah, pretty much all the tracks are midpaced so there's not that much variation in that respect.

OK, this is 19 minutes long... Seemed longer. Glad I checked it out, but I won't be listening again.

Fuck, it's gonna be hard for me to pick between this and Desolate as my favorite metal of the year. This is more fantastic crushing nu-metalcore, but these guys go all out with the electronics. Glitchy breakbeats and drum and bass are all around, Russia really knows how awesome electronic metal is.

^Listening to that now and it already sounds the superior of the 2 releases. The electronic elements make it more interesting imo.
