These records separate the men from the boys.
And so we come to a close of 2017. What a year it has been for the world of Metal. Bringing to life the likes of all sorts of new ingenious bands, the return of legends and of course the coveted album of the year position.
With each passing year it seems that the “End of Year” list seems harder and harder to put together but 2017 was arguably the hardest I’ve had to date. Trying to keep a good middle ground between genres and and style there are always new bands to discover. Having missed out on Elder, Wear Your Wounds, Employed to Serve and heaps more there’s so much more music for me to listen to and I hope that some of my choices might have illuminated some bands you might not have heard of or maybe you hadn’t gotten round to listen to their newer material!
Either way, this is it, my final five of 2017. See you on the other side…
