That leaves me with a little over 2900 additional titles to check out.
2900 overall (2018, 2019, old stuff) or only from 2018 (in which case you are checking like half of what was released)?

I can't decide if you are a hero, totally insane, or what else.
2900 from 2018. For now, I am avoiding my queue of older releases I need to check out.
Centaurus-A/Means of Escape
Wow, they are still active?
Yep! This is probably not as good as their previous album, but it is definitely worthwhile.
Cancer/Shadow Gripped
Even Cancer made a reunion? I'd be curious to count how many "cult" bands from the 80's and early 90's made a reunion after disbanding. Probably way more than 50% hahahahah.
Yeah, it seems like more bands from back in the day have reunited than not. I know that's not correct, but there sure have been a lot of reunions.
Coram Lethe/In Absence
They started so well and lasted so little, just like Hypnotheticall.
Don't think I'll have the courage to try this, I'll just stick with "Thorns".

Another blast from the Italian past, I remember reviewing their demo.
Yeah, the Italian tech death scene used to be stellar. It has faded in recent times. Quebec still seems to be going strong though.
Last Pharaoh/The Mantle Of Spiders
Matt Johnsen from the mirror universe?
Yes, only he spells it "Johnson".
Lunatic Gods/Turiec
Same with Forgotten Silence, stopped following them long ago, but still curious. I liked them much more than the average tech aficionado.
Yeah, I only like their older stuff, but I still check out their new releases.
Mourning Sign/Contra Mundum
Reunion for everyone!
Heh, yeah. Did not get into them back then, and did not get into them now.
The Polish ones?
Yeah, the first I have not liked from them, I think.
Sleep Terror/El Insomne
Wow, another ghost from the past. I remember really liking their demo and being disappointed by their debut album.
Exactly. This is another disappointment.
Stormwitch/Bound to the Witch
Can we deny them the right for a reunion?
Ha ha! Fine by me. I only dig one album by them.
Tourniquet/Gazing at Medusa
Wow, thought they turned to fishing, need to check it.
Never got into these guys. This one continues that trend.
Still active and now with Oinos on drums? Must check, loved them.
I do not know the lineup, but it is the same WoW. Did not get into the album, unfortunately.
