Too Soon? Vince’s Best of 2016… So Far


This year’s “So Far” list seems shorter than the ones I’ve published in years past. It also seems to focus on death metal more than ever.

What’s that all mean? Probably nothing — there’s a lot of year left. But here are the metal albums I’ve been listening to most this year, in alphabetical order:

Avernal – La Quimera de la Perfección (self-released)
Exmortus – Ride Forth (Prosthetic)
Fallujah – Dreamless (Nuclear Blast)
Gojira – Magma (Roadrunner)
Mantar – Ode to the Flame (Relapse)
Snaked – Year of the Snake (self-released)
Spotlights – Tidals (Crowquill)
Textures – Phenotype (Nuclear Blast)
Toothgrinder – Nocturnal Masquerade (Spinefarm)
Vektor – Terminal Redux (Earache)
The Zenith Passage – Solipsist (Unique Leader)
