> I’ve asked The Brother to do another year in review.


Gonna be honest, this year there was a lot of good music, but nothing really caught me and kept me coming back to it over and over again. Still some excellent music, though.

Album of the Year

Ehrling – Tropical Confessions 5

My Album of the Year is an EP from an artist I discovered this year through a Minecraft YouTuber who uses it during building timelapses.

The Heavy Stuff

There was good music this year, despite nothing really hijacking my brain. Here is the heavier stuff I got my groove on to. These are listed in alphabetical order. I care not for ranking!

Dark Tranquillity cover Fires in the Distance cover Noumena cover Slow Fall cover Ulcerate cover

No Death

And in the more rocking, but slightly less aggressive cohort, we have the following.

10 Years cover Amaranthe cover Garmarna cover Andy James cover Katatonia cover

EPs

There were other excellent EPs besides my Album of the Year and I really recommend them. They are all pretty heavy.
