    Also, it would be interesting to hear if you saw any of the bands that are on your list play live this year. Of the bands on my list, I saw Sigur Ros, Citizen, Scale The Summit, The Dillinger Escape Plan, The World Is A Beautiful Place, and Locktender. Not to mention, I'll see letlive for the 3rd time this Friday.

    @kevinsylvia I thought I had relatively obscure music taste. The only band I've heard of on that list is Castevet, but I'm probably thinking of a different band who changed their name to CSTVT.

    haha yeah, this is a different one (I believe the other Castevet changed their name because of them). Pretty much everything on my list is black metal, death metal, doom, or some weird mix of the three.

    Also, 20 is supposed to be Vhol's self titled, and 19 is Aevangelist, I don't know why they pasted like that.

    ^I forgot Wavves. I'd say that goes in my honorable mentions. Also, Chance The Rapper did an awesome mixtape called Acid Rain and I forgot Drake's Nothing Was The Same.
