20. Tribulation - Down Below

January 26, 2018
Critic Score
81
9 reviews

It’s truly amazing to see how far this band has come over the years, sonically, visually, and musically. If Children Of The Night was the awakening for Tribulation, Down Below is the album that will see the band take over the world, one victim at a time.

19. Skeletonwitch - Devouring Radiant Light

July 20, 2018
Critic Score
82
8 reviews

Devouring Radiant Light is a very strong effort. Any new fans of the band that are into the genre will be into it. Anyone expecting a new Skeletonwitch record will be in for a shock though.

14. Tomb Mold - Manor of Infinite Forms

June 8, 2018
Critic Score
80
4 reviews

Manor of Infinite Forms, the band’s sophomore record, is a gruelingly excellent slice of cosmic horror that should solidify the band’s status as one of death metal’s new young leaders.

13. Vein - Errorzone

June 22, 2018
Critic Score
79
5 reviews

Errorzone is a rare kind of debut. It’s hardcore down to its marrow, but it’s got so much more to offer at every bone snapping turn.

11. Sargeist - Unbound

8. Panopticon - The Scars of Man on the Once Nameless Wilderness Part I and II

April 6, 2018
Critic Score
72
5 reviews

The Scars of Man on the Once Nameless Wilderness, in both its parts, are some of the best records to have been released in recent years. There are very few artists like Austin Lunn in the world, capable of crafting such heartfelt works of art.

7. Pig Destroyer - Head Cage

September 7, 2018
Critic Score
82
9 reviews

Yes, there are undeniable faults, but Head Cage is nonetheless proof that 21 years later, Pig Destroyer is still one of metal’s most celebrated creative forces for a damn good reason, that’s more than anyone could’ve reasonably asked for.

6. Between the Buried and Me - Automata I

Between the Buried and Me - Automata I
March 9, 2018
Critic Score

7 reviews

Automata I is an outstanding achievement within Between The Buried And Me's discography.

5. YOB - Our Raw Heart

June 8, 2018
Critic Score
83
9 reviews
It's a powerful and cathartic release that will most likely make an appearance on plenty of year-end “best of 2018” lists.
