Each year of the 2010s has showcased the great diversity of modern metal. 2016 is also shaping up to be a memorable year, and we have yet to hear new Be'Lakor, Meshuggah, and Gojira! Below I will share ten of my favorite albums of the 2010s so far, in no order.
Thy Catafalque - Sgurr
Mgla - Exercises in Futility
Ne Obliviscaris - Citadel
NeO stick in a listener's mind from their fantastic attention to detail and incredibly satisfying explosiveness. Notably on Citadel, the harsh and clean vocalists sometimes simultaneously sing different lyrics - this is music worth following the lyrics for.
Mare Cognitum - Phobos Monolith
Moonsorrow - Jumalten Aika
Ash Borer/Fell Voices - Split LP
Altar of Plagues - Teethed Glory and Injury
Uneven Structure - Februus
Alcest - Ecailles de Lune
Behemoth - The Satanist
Thank you for reading, I hope at least one metal nerd finds an album they enjoy from this. What are your favorite albums of this decade so far?
