Top Whatever of 2017

It’s been really difficult for me to narrow it down to just 20 records I enjoyed this year but it’s all about rank apparently. So we’re breaking the template this year and I’ll give you almost 100 or probably 100 really good releases I loved this year. Seems like more than you bargained for when you started reading this.

This list is in no particular order at all but merely releases I listened to that I thought was good and took the time to write down and came back to a few times. This includes recommendations by some very close friends. Enjoy!

Side-note:  I’m a  bit annoyed at the fact that the new Deathhammer and Vomitor records  are not out yet and I will continue being petty about it well into 2018 util it’s eventual release.

Anyway here’s the list!

Cheesy Heavy Metal Gives Me Life!

So I’ve been listening to a lot of old school cheesy heavy metal and that has kind of pushed me to look for more recent releases. I’ve found quite a few and this year has been incredible for music in general. I’ve been compiling a list of records I really enjoyed this year that I’ll throw up on here at some point. This being said there’s 50 odd excluding the grind and power violence stuff I like but I digress.

Here are some of my favourite Heavy/NWOBHM/Speed/ Thrash metal albums that came out this year, in no particular order.


Night Viper – Exterminator (2017)


Bunker 66 – Chained Down In Dirt (2017)


Evil Invaders – Feed Me Violence (2017)


Speed Queen – Kings of the Road (2017)


Air Raid – Across The Line (2017)


DeadrideR – Reaper (2017)


Hell Fire – Free Again (2017)


Hellripper – Coagulating Darkness (2017)


Blind Haze – The Bastard (2017)

Music, music music Pt 2.

This edition has me reeling on some older stuff mixed in with the new. It’s always good to find out what releases you missed a few years ago and has suddenly improved your life.

I give you this parasailing of a quote I’ve probably butchered:

“As far as you are an individual death will be the end of you. Individuality is not your true and inmost being. It’s simply an outwards manifestation it is not the thing in itself but only the phenomenon presented in the form of time and therefore has a beginning and an end. So when death comes on the one hand you’re annihilated as an individual and on the other hand you are and remain everything… you will be all and nothing.” – unknown.

TL;DR: Riffs are forever, everything else is temporary.


Dahmer – Dahmerized (1997).


Stimulant – S/T (2017).


Consume – S/T (2012?).


Skitsystem – Allt E Skit (2004).


Cavurn – Rehearsal (2017).


Genocide Shrines – Manipura Imperial Deathevokovil- Scriptures Of Reversed Puraana Dharmurder (2015).

August and September were an absolute fuckshow for various reasons and the only thing that really makes it at all bearable is to just focus on music. A wise man once said “riffs are forever”. Anyway, here are some killer tunes new and old I have been into of late.

Sun of The Sleepless – To The Elements (2017)


Ominous Shrine – Ο Δρόμος Της Αποθεώσεως (2017)


Grave Pleasures – Motherblood (2017)


Void Necromancy – Void Manifest (2014)


Air Raid – Across The Line (2017)


Condor – Unstoppable Power


Swallowed – Lunarterial (2014)

Old but Gold

I’ve been digging into heaps of old releases recently, looking for some inspiration whilst writing new material for various projects I’m currently involved with. So I thought “fuck it”, might as well make a list and share it! These are timeless classics in my meaningless and otherwise irrelevant opinion.


Poison – Into The Abyss…


Celtic Forst – Morbid Tales


Sarcofago – I.N.R.I


Bulldozer – The Day of Wrath


Venom – Welcome to Hell


Mercyful Fate – Don’t Break The Oath


Sepultura – Morbid Visions/Bestial Devastation

Back In Business.

Yo, been fucking ages since I put anything on here. Been a rough ride for a multitude of reasons. I won’t go into many details because no one reads this anyway. Tour was fucking sick and I miss my friends, I miss the road and I miss people who are as passionate about music as I am. So I’ve just been spending my time listening to music, music, music and more music so here are some of the years highlights this far. Enjoy!


Obnoxious Youth – Disturbing the Graves


Temple of Void – Lords of Death


Maim – Ornaments of Severity


Suffering Hour – In Passing Ascension


Triumvir Foul – Spiritual Bloodlust


Necroblood – Collapse of the Huamn Race


The Ruins Of Beverast  – Exuvia


Spectral Voice – Eroded Corridors of Unbeing


Impetuous Ritual  – Blight Upon Martyred Sentience


Tomb Stalker – Chaotic Devotion


These are some real bangers but not the full list. I’ll have some reviews up for some these soon. Been toying with doing a podcast again to promote bands.
