This is my list of favorite albums (and one EP) for the calendar year of 2015. No live albums or compilations were allowed. The list started at well over 60 albums and honestly ALL of them should have made this list. This final 33 went through MANY changes up to the last second! There is very little difference to me between number 1 and number 33 on this list. These albums are all THAT great. I’ve linked the name of the album to a website where you can purchase the album or find out more information. Also at the bottom of this page is my radio show that features a song from each of these albums!
The Top 33 albums of 2015 are:
33. Eric Baule – Revelations Adrift
32. Hadean – On Fading
31. Sadist – Hyaena
30. Subterranean Masquerade – The Great Bazaar
29. Fake Heroes – Clouds
28. Arcade Messiah – II
27. Anekdoten – Until All The Ghosts Are Gone
26. Goblin Rebirth – Goblin Rebirth
25. Arcturus – Arcturian
24. Leprous – The Congregation
23. Steorrah – II: Thin White Paint
22. Between The Buried And Me – Coma Ecliptic
21. Antimatter – The Judas Table
20. Barren Earth – On Lonely Towers
19. deafheaven – New Bermuda

5. Tempel – The Moon Lit Our Path
4. Enslaved – In Times
3. Steven Wilson – Hand. Cannot. Erase.
2. Riverside – Love, Fear and the Time Machine
1. Arcane – Known / Learned
I cannot believe that my #1 album of 2015 is from a band that disbanded recently. This album came out in January and blew me away. It withstood every release after it to hold onto the top spot. There’s not a better way for Arcane to go out than with this masterpiece that plays like a Greatest Hits album. Good luck to each member.
And the best EP of 2015:
1/3. Crippled Black Phoenix – New Dark Age
Here’s the radio show with a song from each of the albums above!
