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.
Hypnotheticall/Synchreality
Don't think I'll have the courage to try this, I'll just stick with "Thorns".

Kenòs/Pest
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.
NewBreed/Law
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.
Will'o'Wisp/Mot
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.
