It has actually been a great year for Metal in my opinion. Here are some of the big ones for me this year: Rapture- Paroxysm of Hatred (Death/Thrash) Pestilence- Hadeon (Death Metal) Visigoth- Conqueror's Oath (NWOTHM) Cist- The Frozen Casket (Death Metal) The Crown- Cobra Speed Venom (Death/Thrash) Skeletal Remains- Devouring Mortality (Death Metal) Gruesome- Twisted Prayers (Death Metal) Dance Gavin Dance- Artificial Selection
If I had to pick one of these for the very best album of the first half, I'd go with either Rapture or Skeletal Remains.

Pianos Become The Teeth - Wait for Love Rolo Tomassi - Time Will Die and Love Will Bury It Sleeping Giant - I Am The Armed - Only Love xUnworthy Of Lifex - The Promise Of Death (EP) Zeal & Ardor - Stranger Fruit
I have a ton of albums from this year and last year that are going to make my end of the year "Best of the Rest" thread, but I kind of agree with you, essien ; not a whole lot that has come out that has interested me to a high degree.
TesseracT - Sonder Bishop Briggs - Church of Scars
[Edit]: gonna slide Alien Weaponry’s “Tū” in here as well.

I never seem to be short of being impressed by new music still when I get these lists together. Need to spin some other stuff mentioned by everyone above.
Been a pretty slow first half for full lengths. Some solid EPs (Ecostrike, Firewalker, Ironed Out off the top of my head) Albums looks like what i was thinking the best releases hardcore wise are still to come. Spine will deff make my end of year list though
Now, Now - Saved Pianos Become The Teeth - We Wait For Love Porches - The House Kanye West - Ye Moose Blood - I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore Dance Gavin Dance - Artificial Selection Island Fire - Whale Bones Hop Along - Bark Your Head Off, Dog Tiny Moving Parts - Swell Logic - Bobby Tarantino II
