2016 sucked, but its metal legacy lives on. It was a really good year for metalheads everywhere. No matter what sub-genre you like, there was something for you. I’ve compiled a list of my favorite releases last year by both established and rising bands.
My favorite 2016 releases of metal veterans:
- Norma Jean – Polar Similar
- Gojira – Magma
- Allegaeon – Proponent for Sentience
- Periphery – Periphery III: Select Difficulty
- Killswitch Engage – Incarnate
- Fallujah – Dreamless
- The Word Alive – Dark Matter
My favorite 2016 releases of new bands I discovered:
- After the Burial – Dig Deep
- It Lies Within – Paramount
- Humanity’s Last Breath – Detestor
- Missouri Quiet – Through the Millenniums
- Infant Annihilator – The Elysian Grandeval Galeriach
- The Zenith Passage – Solipsist
- Entheos – The Infinite Nothing
Start 2017 off right by getting caught up with some music you may or may not have listened to yet.
