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.
A mostly instrumental solo studio project of Misha Mansoor. Bulb is also a moniker of Misha's and is named after an old and now defunct band he was once a member of.
There are plans to one day take Bulb on tour as a 'convertable band', meaning that the only consistent members would be Misha and vocalist Thomas Murphy (who also plays bass in Periphery). The rest of the members would be location-dependant.
An instrumental Progressive Metal project from musician Matt Harnett. Fusing modern metal elements with lead playing reminiscent of instrumental guitar virtuosos, Matt's music contains a unique atmosphere rarely found in solo projects. His debut EP, "Enigma" was released in 2013, and he is currently writing for his second release.
