It’s that time of the year again!
This year has been full with ups and downs on a personal level but also in the music world.. So many great albums have been released but we also lost many legends not only in the music world but also in the entertainment business in general… So I am sure this year will be unforgettable for many of us.
As a music journalist, this year has been full with interviews, live reports and awesome concerts as well as album releases for me. Some albums did not really captivate me as much whereas some albums still make me shiver! It was quite hard to choose my favorite top 10 records but I somehow managed to narrow it down to Top 10. So here it comes! (psst, there is also a surprise at the end :D)
#10 BLOODY HAMMERS – LOVELY SORT OF DEATH
# 9 The 69 EYES – UNIVERSAL MONSTERS
#8 FINSTERFORST – #YØLØ
#7 SKUGGSJA – A PIECE FOR MIND & MIRROR
#6 ULVER – ATGCLVLSSCAP
#5 URFAUST – EMPTY SPACE MEDITATION
#4 KATATONIA – THE FALL OF HEARTS
#3 WARDRUNA – RUNALJOD – RAGNARÖK
#2 MOONSORROW – JUMALTEN AIKA
#1 TREES OF ETERNITY – HOUR OF THE NIGHTINGALE
So this is my top 10 of this year… That’s not it though!
This year I decided to do something else and list a few releases that surprised me the most… I will name just a few! 😀 You can think of it as projects/bands that hold potential and that you need to keep an eye on 😉 !
IRIJ – CULTURA CURA
TID – Fix Idé
MALLEVS MALEFICARVM – HOMO HOMINI LUPUS
FIRTAN – INNENWELT
KHEPRA – COSMOLOGY DIVINE
So that’s it folks! What are your favorites of this year? Let me know! I wish everyone a Happy New Year. I hope 2017 will be less apocalyptic although I doubt it… Let the power of music soothe our soul! Stay metal!
