Anthracks Tops 2016

Hi guys. As you all know 2016 was a really cool and also sad year for music. The year took a bunch of legends from us, but also gave rise to some legends-in-the-making. I was particularly affected earlier this year by the passing of David Bowie, who was not only my favorite musician, but also my greatest inspiration throughout my entire life. I will remember forever the day of his passing, and for that alone 2016's flame will burn eternal. There were a lot of huge releases, and a lot of huge disappointments, but overall 2016 provided a completely ludicrous trove of new music from darling musicians. Metal genres in particular were nearly overcrowded by exceptional releases. This is a list of my one hundred favorite albums from the year. Overall year rating: 4.5
