For whatever my opinion is worth (which probably isn’t much), I think this year has been quite an incredible one for heavy music. Some long-awaited returns, some exceptional grind, some progressive masterpieces, and some pretty substantial EPs, to say the least. Here are my top 20 picks for the best releases of 2016.
Brooklyn grinders Magrudergrind have released the official video for their new track “Sacrificial Hire”, which will appear on the group’s upcoming album II. The bombastic new track is set to grainy footage depicting the manufacture of weapons and religious sermons. Obviously, it’s very fitting. Check out the clip after the break.
II will be released on February 12 via Relapse Records.
