GWW thumbnail
GWW Fascinating Progressive Metal without the Djent. His fretless leads are beautiful and inventive. An inspirational album much like Animals As Leaders might affect you. Brilliant stuff. Favorite track: Reverse Engineering Pt.1.
Karlo thumbnail
Karlo Some of the best work of his career, as he incorporates metal, classical music, traditional Indian music, drum & bass, jazz and much more in a manner that is unique, surprising and engaging. The quality of songwriting and the seamless integration of ideas makes this one of the best releases of 2016. Favorite track: 999.

xenohunt321 Tom is probably the most underrated guitarist out there. If only they knew what he could do, banks would be giving him interest free Loans! Favorite track: Reverse Engineering Pt.1.
