Second to publish an album top 10 from 2017 is our ‘second in command’ Ingrid.
Giving a long explanation about why this is my top 10 from 2017 isn’t really my cup of tea.
A few of these albums I have reviewed myself for our website and you can read my thoughts on those on the site (Satyricon, Moonspell, The Flight Of Sleipnir, Iced Earth and Hate).
Besides those, Farvegir Fyrndar of Auðn is something you just have to acknowledge if you are any kind of black metal fan (and it’s just a fucking amazing album! 😉 )
My number one album this year isn’t a metal album, yet for me it’s the best release in 2017. The last decade(s), pop music has declined a lot, yet there still are bands and musicians out there that make great music and give it their all, straight from the heart and Imagine Dragons is one of them. For the same reason I also have Rag’n’Bone Man in my list.
There probably are a lot of other great releases from 2017 that haven’t made the list. When I write reviews for metal-exposure I try to stay as objective as possible, even if a band plays a genre I don’t like.
But since this is my personal top 10 those don’t make it into my list.
Enough explaining, here it is:
Imagine Dragons – Evolve
Auðn – Farvegir Fyrndar
Satyricon – Deep Calleth Upon Deep
Solstafir – Berdreyminn
Rag’n’Bone Man – Human
Moonspell – 1755
Enslaved – E
Iced Earth – Incorruptible
Hate – Tremendum
The Flight Of Sleipnir – Skadi
I haven’t numbered them, on purpose, because sometimes if differs a bit, but this is as good as it goes.
