50: Scorpion Child – Acid Roulette

The old-school drug-hazed sound of this second album by Scorpion Child is pleasing to the ear. Filled with dirty riffs & sleazy sounding vocals, it’s one to get groovy with.

48: Anthrax – For All Kings

One of the big 4 of thrash metal, Anthrax’s latest album is a return to form filled with exciting songs & an on-form Belladonna.

47: Korn – The Serenity of Suffering

Taking inspiration from their entire career, Korn dropped an album filled with heavy riffs, earth-shattering beats & enough electronica to please more modern fans too.

46: Hatebreed – The Concrete Confessional

Sticking with exactly what they know, Hatebreed dropped head-bangingly good hardcore metal with the usual slathering of anti-establishment/upbeat lyrics.

45: Whispered – Metsutan: Songs of the Void

whispered

Taking their inspiration from Japanese culture, this latest album from Whispered is packed full of hard-hitting metal riffs & a bounce that just gets under your skin.

44: Unearthed Elf – Into the Catacomb Abyss

A journey into the abyss never sounded so good. The Unearthed Elf creates an atmosphere that is musically exciting while tinged with a dark edge.

43: Black Tusk – Pillars of Ash

black-tusk

Pillars of Ash is aggression personified, pissed off vocals, dark & dirty riffs & drumming that will leave your ears ringing.

42: With Heavy Hearts – The Mirror’s Principle

Melodic death metal at its finest, darkly atmospheric while retaining a serious sense of beauty.

41: Devildriver – Trust No One

Another hefty slab of groove-orientated metal. Dez & company sound re-energised coming off the back of a line-up change & the Coal Chamber reunion.
