Man it was a phenomenal year for heavy music, wasn’t it? Even if you were just a fan of one single genre, there were enough options to keep you entertained throughout the entire year!!! I somehow managed to focus on death metal but also found some gems outside of extreme music, two of which you will find here. Also, another genre of music I focused more on was synthwave, damn I love that stuff! While I did enjoy some fam jams quite a bit in 2017, it’s a safe bet that none of that will be in this top 25. A lot of talent and wonderful albums dropped this year, I could have easily done a top 100 like I did a few years ago but I will spare you. I hope you enjoy and if you haven’t heard of some of these….make sure you listen to them!!!
