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. Since my major musical kick at the moment (and has been for a few years now) is Metalcore, the genre dominates this list, but as you know, I love a good twist and have a few surprises up my sleeve here for ya!
From the ashes of the 90's group Sunny Day Real Estate, was born The Fire Theft in 2001, a trio formed of Jeremy Enigk (vocals, guitar), William Goldsmith (drums) and Nate Mendel (bass) - both also former members of the Foo Fighters.
And here's to you Ty, a singer, but above all a musician from California, who plays the electric guitar and the drums divinely, he’s super prolific due to his collaborations with so many bands I am not even going to mention… but I hope you will want to find out more about him after I tell you all about his latest work as a soloist with the album First Taste released August 2019.
No Virtue is a mature album, which this Canadian band from Ontario gave birth to in the US 6 years after their last EP and 10 from their debut album, Monolith.
Finally, after years of silence, on October 11th 2019, they managed to self-produce No Virtue with a more complex sound, a search for more modern and electronic melodies.
In March of this year Hear me Out was finally released. The first album by Reignwolf, a Canadian group from Saskatoon, which since 2012 has made itself known and appreciated for its live performances and the raw rock and blues sound in various festivals like Coachella or Lollapalooza, and opening concerts including those of Black Sabbath and Pixies.
