And so the time has come, I reveal my final pick of 2016. It’s been a good ride! We’ll have coverage as usual for anything we deem Metal worthy! See you on the other side of Christmas! Make it Metal!!
2016 certainly has thrown down the gauntlet in terms of Metal releases. Despite us only just coming into the month of June so far we have had some absolutely astounding releases. From comebacks to phenomenal debuts, expansive work to avant garde madness this is a list chronicling just some of the newest releases this year. Today we will be looking at some of the releases from the first third of the year and boy are there some truly top additions.
Of one of the worlds pioneering explorers, Shackleton’s story is an admirable one. Racing to the discovery of the North Pole. Owing to our pursuit of vested interests experimentation has become integrated in discovery. Previously achieving new heights with band Emperor the man essentially birthed a new sound in the oversaturated Black Metal aesthetic. Once again going against the grain the singer / songwriter shows us yet another facet to his limitless abstract ideals.
April is no doubt going to be a month to remember in the Metal calendar with a plethora of releases, yet no doubt one of the most anticipated is the return once more of Emperor main man Ihsahn.
