Lychgate - Also Sprach Futura EP

everything these guys have put out has been great and this might be their best material yet.
Looking forward to this one.
Quasarborn - A Pill Hard to Swallow

I don't hype up my friends just because they are my friends, but these guys are buddies and really fucking good. They start off with a great base of progressive thrash metal riffage and combine it with more modern, intricate, and hugely melodic influences. This is the direction thrash needs to head towards if it doesn't want to die.
Yeah, great band and album. One of the few 2020 releases, along with the new Haunt, that I have listened to.

"It's not exactly a horrible album, but it's no better than something by, I dunno, Pagan's Mind or some other shirt-tucking nerdprog band." - Matt Johnsen of Pharaoh
