2023 Interesting Picks

Pretty average year, with really spare releases for me.

Plus since Epic Games, before won against Google on trail, has sold Bandcamp (wich was bought only to disturb Google during thier trail) to Songtradr (a music licensing platform), wich has cut off half of the stuff just after acquisition, so i feel bad for artists and workers. Pretty sad times for indie music...

1.Blaze Of Sorrow - Vultus Fati
2.Shores Of Null - The Loss Of Beauty
3.Overkill - Scorched
4.Kalmah - Kalmah
5.Burden Of Grief - Destination Dystopia
