Guys, why don't you try to write a couple words commenting on your listens, instead of posting dry lists? Otherwise it seems like going to the supermarket and reading some grocery lists by housewives.
I feel the same way, but to each their own.
Sadus - "Swallowed in Black"
The best DiGiorgio performance is on "A Vision of Misery", but this is my favourite album by the band.
I have tried several times, but AVoM is the only Sadus disc I can appreciate.
Sepultura - "Beneath the Remains"
The kind of album that reminds me I'm younger than what my identity card says.
Stone cold brilliance.
Sepultura - "Roots"
When it came out I really HATED it. After some years I started to appreciate what they were doing, but in small doses, usually only the first 4 songs. If taken as a whole then it's like a brick on my balls.
Utter shit. I tried to find things to like about Chaos A.D., but Roots was beyond the pale for me. There are quite a few crappy albums on my year-end lists from back in the day by bands I used to love. I just did not want to completely give up on a once great band. Crap like Chaos A.D., The Ritual, Lock up the Wolves, The Black Album, Countdown to Extinction, Divine Intervention, Grin, Scamboogery, Girls, Girls, Girls... Just sad.
Serdce - "The Alchemy of Harmony"
Tech death goodness, although I prefer the one before and the one after. Time to release a new album, guys!
Have you heard Timelessness (2014)?

Serdce - Timelessness / prog death

Cyberly (2004) was an exciting addition to my complex death collection, and The Alchemy of Harmony (2009) surprisingly improved upon its predecessor. Well, it has been another five years for this band from Belarus, so it was time for another journey into the land o widdly. Unfortunately for me, the band decided to incorporate more of a proggier vibe, with the music becoming less frenetic and dense. This change of pace also included clean vocals on about half of the tracks. I find their new style to be worthwhile overall, but it is a definite step down for me.
Theory in Practice - "Third Eye Function"
I'm one of the few crazy donkeys that think this is the best stuff they released.
Yeah, you are crazy. This is good, but The Armageddon Theories is god-like.
