Monthly Album Roundup – July 2018

Welcome to the Decibel Boost Podcast album roundup for the month of July 2018. The second half of the 2018 started off in a pretty relaxed place, with a more streamlined amount of albums that still worked in some big names and surprises here and there. This month: Alex warns of the latest victim of Imagine Dragons syndrome (Spoiler: it’s Daughtry) while praising the magnificence of Devin Townsend’s latest live album. Mark comments on the surprise new EP from Oneohtrix Point never while crowning a new AOTY contender with Denzel Curry’s newest 3-act release. Finally, Robert comments on the frenetic insanity of Frontierer, the gut-busting hilarity of Psychostick’s surprise new album, and the conclusion of BTBAM’s Automata concept before picking apart Epica’s recent attempt to cash in on one of the biggest anime hits of the decade with less-than-acceptable results

Your hosts this month are Robert (@RobBarracuda), Alex (@AuraOfAzure), and Mark (@MAK2HybridMedia). Subscribe to the podcast on iTunes and Google Play Music.
