Top Albums of 2015

There was an avalanche of new releases in 2015, and my palette for new sounds has been steadily expanding over the last few years. For this edition, I’ve broken my list of favorite albums into three categories: Rock, Metal, and Top 10.

After a lot of contemplation, I decided it didn’t make sense to compare certain albums within the same list. Breaking my original list into separate genres had its own set of challenges and discrepancies, but in the long run it made more sense and was much easier when it came to making decisions about placement.

Even though I’m two whole years behind schedule, I hope the time and effort that went into compiling all this was worth it. I’m doing my best to keep moving forward and starting on my list of top EP’s in 2016. So until then, enjoy!

Top 30 of 2014 • LP Edition

After more than two years of hard work, as well as some definite procrastination along the way, I have finally finished my list for the best albums of 2014. Yes, you’re reading this correctly – 2014! It should go without saying that this has been, by far, the most difficult list for me to piece together. So much great music was released in that year and I wanted to be sure to do the utmost amount of justice to all the bands who contributed in that time. That being said, it is an absolutely huge sigh of relief to get this off my chest, and I can pretty much guarantee that I will never spend so long on a single post ever again (unless my life depends on it).

As always, I hope you enjoy and are able to find a new band or two to add to your own list of favorites. Let me know what you were listening to in 2014 and/or since then! So many great things happening. Top EP’s of 2015 coming next!

It’s hard to believe we are already nearly a third of the way through 2016. Music-wise, the year has been off to somewhat of a slow start, but things are steadily picking up with some big releases on the horizon: namely Deftones, Katatonia, and Thrice. Of course, the first third of the year hasn’t been completely void of new material. To kick things off, Opia dropped their magnificent debut (Eon), The Word Alive took a surprising and pleasant turn away from metalcore with Dark MatterO‘Brother gave us their beautiful new work (Endless Light), and Port Noir just released their full-length sophomore record (Every Way the Wind Carries).

It is at this time that I’d like to shift the attention to those of you have been supporting The Undertow and NewGenerationSlave with your likes, shares, subscriptions, and comments. This March the NewGenerationSlave YouTube page reached a noteworthy milestone: 1500 subscribers! From the bottom of my heart I’d just like to give a massive thank you to everyone who has been following the page and, most importantly, to the bands and artists. They are the reason this endeavor began in the first place and deserve the utmost credit and support for their creativity.

Be sure to let me know what you’ve been listening to in 2016!

– llǝʍ0duɐǝs

Thank You and Happy New Year!

Just want to wish everyone a happy new year and say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported The Undertow and New Generation Slave in 2015! It has been another incredible and memorable year in music, with a completely astounding amount of new releases.

I realize how quiet things have been recently, and I must apologize for the lack of Top Albums articles for both 2014 and 2015. Much of my work here has been put on the back burner after the decision was made to start the Facebook page. I’m planning on prioritizing both of those articles early this next year and getting everything moving more steadily once again.

Again, thank you to anyone who has taken the time to view or share anything on any of the pages. It is amazing seeing first hand how alive this music community is, and it truly keeps me encouraged to continue this movement. Best wishes for 2016!

Top 15 of 2014 • EP Edition

As always, this was a very challenging list to construct, but I’m hoping it effectively highlights the many, excellent EP’s that were released last year (as well as a couple that were released in 2013 – see * [ Notes ] below). Later in the year I’ll be back with the LP Edition, but in the meantime, stay up to date by following The Undertow on Facebook and subscribing to the New Generation Slave on YouTube!
