12+4626 Comfortzone - Beardfish

Beardfish are really underrated and this album proves they should get the recognition a band like Dream Theater does. - IronSabbathPriest

Pretty good album, pretty eclectic, and in my honest opinion should be in at least, top three.

The title track (Comfortzone) in particular is awesome. I agree it sounds a lot like old 70s prog. I look forward to the band's lead singer's upcoming solo album this year! - IronSabbathPriest

13Quiet World - Native Construct

This album made a lot of Metal Injection writers' top 10 of 2015. Really an amazing album - ryanrimmel

14Vola - Inmazes

Imagine Meshuggah with dream pop influence of Mew and you get this, best djent of the year.

15Hand. Cannot. Erase. - Porcupine Tree
