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
