This is my top ten list of favorite metal albums from 2018. You can find the 2017 list here. At the end of next month I will release my top ten list for metal albums of 2019. You can already see my lists here, but in these posts I will go into more detail about why I have chosen these albums.
I am going to do reviews of my favorite metal albums from the past few years. I am a recent convert to metal music, so I am starting with 2017. This first list is coming out in October. In November I will do my 2018 top ten and then in December I will do my 2019 top ten. You can already see my lists here, but in these posts I will go into more detail about why I have chosen these albums.
Marduk is a black metal band that formed in Sweden in 1990, releasing their first album Dark Endless in 1992; their latest album Viktoria is their fourteenth LP to be released. Two years ago, in early 2017, their show in Oakland was cancelled by the venue to prevent a local anti-fascist group from violence after they reportedly threatened the venue staff. This was due to accusations that Marduk promotes racism and fascism. Is this accusation true?
For anyone who may not have noticed, I added some new content to this blog. Under the “About” tab I added “My Playlists” which takes you to links to my Google Play Music playlists. It’s mostly metal and hip-hop. Feel free to check it out.
I also added a “My Biology” section that talks about my ancestry and neural biochemistry based on my 23andme data.
