I know I’m new here and I will probably be hit or miss with everything and anything, but hell, lets give it a shot shall we?
2016 fucking blew in so many ways not metal that famous actors are still dying to this day because of how shitty this year has been. At least they got their release, and made everyone suffer for it. My, probably should say ours but I speak for no one but myself (except at my real job, then I speak for others in a different setting. Email me and I may tell you what the fuck a goon like me does) escape was and is music. But here is the kick in the nuts (who said god doesn’t have a sense of humor): I have no music shops up here and have to get music directly from the distributors because all I have here is a fucking wal-mart. So needless to say, my music collection came from YouTube while at work, buying records when I can, but mostly listening to old but great cd’s that I myself own. (Time in Malta…ever heard of them? No? You’re missing out. Big time.)
That being said. My top picks of 2016 are late (expect it) and limited (acquisitions are few and far between), but here they are with no reasoning from me what so ever other than they rocked:
1. Nothing– Tired of Tomorrow
2. Neurosis–Fires Within Fires
3. Car Bomb – Meta
5. Our Place of Worship is Silent– Embodiment of Hate
I have probably forgotten more than I know, but these albums are on repeat my friends. And I am also typing this on a phone. A PHONE! But anyways, check these albums out.
I’ll review some shit soon. Happy new year, crank the tunes and prepare for the worst.
