megarust's Late Hits of 2021

Some music I found a bit into 2022 from 2021 that was pretty good!



Some of last year's albums are worth noting even though I didn't get to them until sometime this year. So here's a post with some of those noteworthy albums and eps that didn't make my top albums of last year, but are worth checking out!

  • Turnstile - GLOW ON
    Genre: Hardcore Punk
    Review: Insanely catchy, with a really great production. Reminds me a little bit of The Offspring, but that doesn't really do it justice. This album is surprisingly consistent in quality front to back, top notch.
  • Silent Planet - Iridescent
    Genre: Metalcore
    Review: Heavy af, with a cool semi industrial synth vibe? The album is a bit of a journey. Has some great highs.
    Sample: Till We Have Faces Silent Planet - Till We Have Faces
  • Invent Animate - The Sun Sleeps, As If It Never Was
    Genre: Progressive Metalcore
    Review: Well, this was my introduction to this band. Pretty short three (mostly 2) track ep. Love it. The mood of the second track kind of reminding me of Junius who I have missed since their last album in 2017.
    Sample: Invent Animate - The Sun Sleeps, As If It Never Was [Official Music Video]
  • The Stranger - Kaleidoscope
    Genre: Progressive Metal/Rock
    Review: Clean progressive metal with catchy keys. I'm looking forward to seeing what these guys do next.
    Sample: Eleventh Hour The Stranger - Eleventh Hour (Official Music Video)
  • Claemus - Daydream
    Genre: Progressive Metal/Rock
    Review: Reminds me a bit of Karnivool. Good stuff. They put out a new single this year as well.
    Sample: Recovery Claemus // Recovery // Daydream
  • Failure - Wild Type Droid
    Genre: Alternative
    Review: New to this band but I guess they were pretty space themed until this album and have been around since the 90s. Not sure what to say, I enjoy good alternative/indie music and this is that.
    Sample: Submarines Failure - Submarines - Lyric Video

    I thought it'd be nice to have a place in the middle for music discovered after my best of [some year] music post from that same year. Here's some music I found out about a bit late that I think is pretty good.
