Alternative Press already named Silent Planet as a band to watch in 2016, but there’s likely no amount of buzz that could have forecast the growth from SP’s debut, The Night God Slept (buy), to their brand new album, Everything Was Sound. From a strong lyrical focus on mental illness to Garrett Russell’s emotional vocal to guest spots from Cory Brandon and Spencer Chamberlain, Everything Was Sound is a killer metalcore album. If you want to jump straight to the highlights, “Nervosa” and “First Father” are about as good as the genre gets, but then again you’d be missing a cohesive, semi-concept record that’s good from beginning to end.
