11.12.16 2016 Metal

2016 Metal
1Toothgrinder
Nocturnal Masquerade


A mammoth masterpiece, Toothgrinder blends several elements of metal together in fascinating fashion to create an amazing experience unlike any other this year. Ripe with top notch lyricism, instrumentation & passion, the band leaves their mark on metal for 2016 and beyond.
2Greenleaf
Rise Above The Meadow


Stoner metal outfit Greenleaf takes the very best properties of doom and combines them with infectious Queens Of The Stone like choruses to make an album that stays stuck in your head long after you're done listening.
3Gojira
Magma


Surely a divisive album among their fans, Gojira brings a softer and more melodic sound to their new album that sees them invoke even the sound of Tool. The weight of the death of the Duplantier matron makes this the most emotional metal album of the year.
4Opeth
Sorceress


The most intricate and well produced album of the year sees Opeth finally realize their magna opus in this new musical direction. Every chord has purpose and the beauty the band manages to strike is mesmerizing. Much like Gojira, Opeth sees their risk taking come to fruition in enviable awe.
5Kyng
Breathe In The Water


Much in the same way Gojira & Opeth mirror each other with their respective albums, Kyng takes a similair approach to Greenleaf, combining some doom with Queens Of The Stone Age- esque refrains. It makes for one of this year's most enjoyable and easy listens from beginning to end.
6Beelzefuzz
The Righteous Bloom


If you're looking for pure doom metal, look no further than the new album from Beelzefuzz. Despite being
