WHAT WERE MY FAVORITE
ALBUMS OF 2017?
Just insane on a speed, power, brutality and catchiness level, the band took all the best elements of modern death metal and slapped me in the face with them. Bravo!
Originally I didn't give this release a great review, but after multiple listens, I started to get the album more and more, and in the end, while I do miss some of elements of this album's predecessor, M.O.R.T.E. has great riffs and a spectacular performance.
HOPE: Mutilated And Assimilated
Their comeback album was decent, but this follow-up is back at full force, all the new musicians are now firmly entrenched in the classic Broken Hope style.
The song writing went up a notch on this release, the band does consistent good work, but this brought it to a new level.
FACELESS: In Becoming A Ghost
Despite all the personal drama in this "band", the album itself is a solid piece of both technical and progressive death metal.
|6) MORTA SKULD: Wounds
Deeper Than Time
Solid comeback for the legendary band, just great riffs with a solid performance. Heavy as fuck.
ANGEL: Kingdoms Disdained
The band is back after a huge misstep, Kingdoms isn't their most classic album, but is super solid and will certainly improve with age.
FETUS: Wrong One To Fuck With
Another solid release from Dying Fetus, always a pleasure to hear more music from the band.
Far better than their last album, and all the elements we love in the speediest of death metal.
|10) PRONG: Zero
Back to the speed, power and catchiness that the band is known for.
BIRTH: Axis Mundi
Fantastic technical death metal, and some really sweet covers to boot.
A step up from their last slightly disappointing album, fans of technical death metal should check this out.
