When an album shakes you to your core, you know you've witnessed something special. This week was an impressive one all around. We started with veteran progressive power metallers DGM, releasing perhaps their best album of their 19 year career. The fabled Jizzlobber impressed, with a stoner sludge style on their self titled EP that could only come from France. An e-mail from Schysma opened our eyes to some brilliant storytelling on an EP, "Imperfect Dichotomy," that shows us the whole is bigger than the sum of its parts. And finally, Omnium Gatherum made a clear declaration to be the album of the year, and we are only two full months in. What a time to be a metal fan.
