The got-djent.com moderation team goes through a lot of music in a year. As in previous years, we are concluding our "favourite albums of 2015" series of posts with a number of editors' picks: releases that we felt didn't get the attention they deserve.
The got-djent.com moderators are pitching a couple of albums to you that they feel are worth hearing, but didn't make the 'favourite releases of 2015' list. Contrary to our poll, which was based on site users' votes, the list presented below is based on the opinions of individual got-djent.com staff members, and it is important to be aware that it does not represent the opinion of got-djent.com as a whole. Since it is one of our main goals to be a neutral community platform, we feel that this disclaimer is appropriate and indeed necessary.
Our picks will be split across two posts. Today, we're publishing part 2, with recommendations for 11 albums, as well as streaming, downloading and purchasing options where applicable. If a free download link is provided, that means the album was released for free by the artist(s). All free downloads are 100% legal.
In the Midst of Lions play vicious deathcore in the service of a higher power. A mixture of fast-paced tech metal and melodic worship, their music can be compared to such contemporaries as The Faceless, Meshuggah and Veil of Maya, with the addition of the fact that ITMOL packs a serious spiritual punch. "Our generation is in dire need of a savior. It has become trendy to cast out our Lord, we are here to bring the truth." ITMOL's truth comes under the guise of death metal laced with explosive breakdowns and inspirational live shows.
