Dream Troll - Second to None

How did I miss out on this? Exactly what I've been looking for - interesting, non-derivative, trad metal with big AOR sweetness and a little bit of prog thrown in. Sometimes sounds like 80s Kansas goes metal. Love it!

Twilight Force - Dawn of the Dragonstar

I realize that this is a budget Rhapsody but at least it's catchy as shit and the choruses slap, which you can't really say for any of the current incarnations of Rhapsody.

Dysrhythmia - Terminal Threshold

More of the same greatness, not much needs to be said.

Blood Incantation - Hidden History of the Human Race

They might be slightly overhyped, but this checks all my death metal boxes. Sounds like Formulas Fatal to the Flesh mixed with Close to a World Below with a little bit of oriental Nile flavor and a pinch of psychdelia thrown in.

Car Bomb - Mordial

Absolutely bat shit crazy. This is what Meshuggah might have sounded like if they invested in boutique pedals and LSD instead of 8 strings after Chaosphere. Completely bonkers shit and pretty much the only djenty band that's actually trying to push the envelope, Meshuggah included.
