Here are my favourite homegrown alternative and experimental releases from 2016.
Six Noises EOY ’16: Outliers, Experimentalists, and Psychedelic Voyagers
Six Noises EOY ’16: Metal
Death’s Door is an arduous and harrowing reboot. And that’s exactly what’s needed, in this day and age.
Setentia’s accomplished debut intertwines gut-felt ferocity with forward-thinking expressiveness.
Angels doesn’t provide easy answers or upbeat resolutions. But, like all great art, it does ask a lot of uneasy questions.
Aesthetically, Ulcerate are unrivalled. They are what others cannot be.
Seputus don’t just capture the rage around us on Man Does Not Give, they also help release the rage within us.
Vexamen is a bold debut, a huge step up from Verberis’ demo, and that bodes well for the band’s future endeavours.
Decision Process is highly recommended for rockers, rollers, habitual headphone listeners, and fresh-faced or long-term fans of heavyweight rock alike.
