2018 - My Best To Worst (Updated Weekly)


Welcome to my 2018 list. If you have recommendations for albums, feel free to message in the comments section. Or, if you see anything on the list you liked or found something you want to check out, feel free to give a thumbs up

Every album on this list has been listened to fully at least 3 (or more) times.

Rating guide:
✮✮✮✮✮ - Incredible, possibly AOTY
✮✮✮✮½ - Excellent
✮✮✮✮ - Praiseworthy
✮✮✮½ - Good
✮✮✮ - Meets Expectations
✮✮½ - Nothing Special
✮✮ - Disappointing
✮½ - Bad
✮ - Terrible

I rarely rate an album ✮✮✮✮✮ so if you see an album with 5 stars, you can bet each song on that album has been played A LOT. More albums will appear as the year goes on. Some albums get bumped up/down, depending on how they hold up.

Please feel free to see my lists from previous years:

Cool man, Stormbane - Eldritch Devotion is a bit more unknown, sounds kinda like early era Sepultura... would also recommend Вѣдьмa - История отречения if your into BM
