Merry Christmas freaks!  It’s been an, uh, interesting year.  We sincerely thank each and every one of you who listen to this podcast and support us in any way.  It is a fair amount of work, but even more fun, and it means a lot that we have all of you enjoying it! So thanks again being with us in 2016, and we look forward to a (hopefully better) 2017!  And now, enjoy our top albums of the year!!

P.S.  As you heard last week, in this episode and may have read in comments recently, Nick and I overlooked a few releases when talking about Most Disappointing, Best Debut, etc. You should know by now we aren’t always the sharpest crayons in the box. Well, adding to that list, we neglected to mention an EP we both enjoyed – Welcome to Poetry 201 by The Nietzsche. (Check out our 4 star review HERE if you missed it.) Sorry about that guys!

I Hope You Didn’t Like Your Skull Too Much…

…because Meshuggah is going to f**king crush it, then the rest of this week’s line-up is just going to stomp the remains and/or dance in the ash and dust.  Yeah, we have some heavy and just good tunes this week.

Time in Sweden…With a Stop in Belgium

We didn’t mean to do this, but it turns out four of the five bands we discuss this week are from Sweden. Those four bands are also signed to Nuclear Blast in at least some part of the world, so apparently they have an affinity of the country too.  I guess most of us Metalheads do now that i think about it…  Anyway, enjoy the show, sorry it is late, and let us know your thoughts on these releases!

As anybody who has listened to this show a few times knows, I HATE doing these damn lists.    You and I both know the main reason is because I am extremely indecisive.  However, I also detest them because no matter how long I make the list (Kyle gets angry when I do more than 10) I still feel like I am slighting albums that don’t deserve it.   Then out of the albums I do pick, I have to split hairs over which ones I like more than others only to come up with a list I am not even sure I 100% agree with!  In the end, I have to get something together and just say, “Screw it.  It’s close enough.”
