I enjoyed Paradise Lost's Medusa and The Ruins of Beverast's Exuvia from this year. That's about it. :lol:

Enslaved: E (probably my AOTY)
Barrabus: s/t
Mastodon: Emperor of Sand
Converge: The Dusk in Us

The Bronx: V (yeah, it may well be The-Bronx-by-numbers, but even that is pretty good)
Municipal Waste: Slime and Punishment
Unsane: Sterilize

Bell Witch: Mirror Reaper (I have to confess I haven't listened to this all the way through, yet, but I think it deserves it's place here as what I've heard is very good).
Odio: Ancora

Not released this year, but the award for best musical discovery, by me, in 2017, goes to........... Oranssi Pazuzu.

I think it's been a rather good year, from a musical perspective.

Post subject:  Re: Albums of the year.......

Yeah that Body Count. That's the first time they have really impressed since their debut all the way back in 1992. It's also the first time Obituary have made any list of mine since around that time.

I loved the new Obsessed. Reckon it deserved more praise than it got.

You preferred Power Flo to Body Count? Interesting. What about Prophets of Rage? :D

Still haven't listened to the new Godflesh. Must get on to it.

Not heard Prophets Of Rage as I’m not a fan of Tom Morrello and the last Body Count album I enjoyed was Manslaughter, although I’ll give the new one another go.

Forgot to mention the new ones by Satyricon and Arch Enemy. They have definitely grown on me, and are ones I'll keep listening to down the road. Still need to listen to the new ones by Aosoth, Immolation, Anathema, Power Trip, Pallbearer, and Grave Pleasures. I'm sure I forgot some.

Yes it definitely should be on there! Never listened to many albums from this year, primarily over the last couple weeks in an end-of-the-year frenzy, but this would probably claim the top spot.

I do like the Akercocke, Pagan Altar & Root / Big Boss albums but have to be in the right mood.

I tried it, and I couldn't finish it. I just got so bored! I can usually hack a bit of doomy shit, but that went a bit far for me. I also didn't like Spectral Voice - Eroded Corridors of Unbeing, which has been very highly rated in a lot of places, but I found it just to be a second rate, watered down version of disEMBOWELMENT. I did rate Ruins of Beverast - Exuvia though.
