Default Rock/Metal Album Reviews | 1 Year Challenge

[Yes, I totally ripped the title from noname (props for your original 1 year challenge, you've made it really far, I know life's making it difficult for you right now, but push through, you can do it!)]

Mmkay, so I am in desperate need of new music to listen to, specifically in the Rock/Metal genres. That was about as general in terms of genre as I could make it, so as to allow you guys to suggest anything you got, be it Classic Rock, Punk Rock, Pop Punk, Black Metal, Power Metal, Mathcore, Metalcore, you name it. IF it's in the list, I'll review it eventually.

PLEASE NOTE: My reviews will not be nearly as in-depth or legit as other's (i.e. noname's). For the most part I will be judging whether or not I like the music, and how much so.

In total I'm going to need 365 albums to review, so I'm gonna need a lot. Because of the quantity, (again, ripping from noname, <3 you) everyone will be able to request a total of anywhere from 1-10 albums. You can swap out submissions at any time, but I won't review more than 10 for you, so as to give more people chances.

EDIT: This does not mean that I will not accept suggestions beyond 365. I will continue accepting them, however I will not review them all. I will likely do more than 365 (due to days I decide to do extra albums), but there's no way I'm doing ~500 lol)

SPREADSHEET OF ALBUMS LEFT TO REVIEW:

I don't know why I just copypaste Noname's post, honestly.

If you suggest (an) album(s), put your Birthday down along with your suggestions if you'd like me to do a review of one of your suggestions for your birthday!

I'll do my best to do a review each day/make up for missed days, I fully intend on riding this all the way until the end.

Find me some stuff!


(Literal Copypaste from noname)

There goes my brother ripping all my submissions.

Oh and YMIA, revamping this thread is awesome. I like the idea of having multiple users willing to undertake such a project. (Shoutouts go to rayword, noname and trog). Made a song a day challenge once but couldn't even keep up. So again, definitely don't let this stress you.

EDIT:

At the Drive-In - Relationship of Command
Converge - All We Love We Leave Behind
Baptists - Bushcraft
Norma Jean - Wrongdoers
La Dispute - Somewhere at the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair
Biffy Clyro - The Vertigo of Bliss
PMtoday - In Medias Res
Soilwork - The Living Infinite
A Static Lullaby - Rattlesnake!
Rescuer - With Time Comes the Comfort

Kayo Dot - Hubardo
The Dillinger Escape Plan - One of Us Is The Killer
Genghis Tron - Board up the House
Against Me! - As the Eternal Cowboy
Pistolita - Oliver Under the Moon
Moving Mountains - Waves
Sylosis - Monolith
Isis - Oceanic

I'll edit with some suggestions.
Yea I know I'm not going to let it bother me. If at any point I find it to be more of a stress creator than a stress reliever, than I'm going to drop the 1 year challenge idea and just review the remaining albums at whatever pace is most comfortable for me.

Personally though I don't believe that should happen, since I intend on moving into music in college, and it's pretty much my life.
