One of the new features this year was my Track of the Week, it's something I’ve wanted to do for a while and I finally found the time in 2019. I’ve had a lot of fun with it, meaning I intend to continue in 2020, but more importantly it helped me discover more bands and music than what I normally would. With this list I’d like to highlight the 10 best tracks I’ve heard in the last 12 months with most of them coming from our Track of the Week series.
Here we go kids, It's my first list of the end of year series and like I normally do, I'm starting with albums and EPs.

Back on the 2nd of July we checked out Blacks0n, the Italian Prog Deathcore two piece and their latest single ‘Nowhere To Run’, where I told you I was super pumped for their EP Cry for Inspiration, such was the impression of the first two tracks the
Happy to share some hometown love!
Being based in London means I struggle to keep up with all the bands my hometown produces. Sure, I have my brother and a few good mates that share and let me know who has a great sound from time to time. But in this case it was pure luck that I stumbled across Make Them Suffer, a five piece Deathcore band, on Twitter and when I saw they were from Perth I just had to give them a listen, plus since they released Worlds Apart only just last year, I thought I'd do one better and share my findings!
