TOP 100 HEAVY METAL ALBUMS OF 2017

KICK ASS METAL HEAVY METAL HALL OF FAME ALBUM

 

This artist is no stranger to the KICK ASS METAL pages, either in news articles, write-ups or record reviews….So I looked around the actual heavy metal press, fanzines not webZines, if a metal webzine did not have a print edition from 1980-1991 well they are not a metal publication, it is just that simple…!!! There was a beautiful week @ 4:10 PM on August 14th, 2003 there was an electric grid black-out and I enjoyed my stack of Metal Forces, Metal RendeVous, Sounds of Death, Snakepit Heavy Metal France, this lasted for 2 days, and realized to send more time with the actual metal press, and ignore all the webZines around, since most of them are not written by metallers in the first place…..!!!!!

I usually start everyday off with reading the influential publications to this publication, avant garde metal, Sonic Cathedral, Metal Maidens, True Metal Organization, Voices from the Darkside, and look through the publications Snakepit Heavy Metal FRANCE, James L. McHard’s – THE FUTURE OF MODERN MUSIC, Sounds of Death, Anvil Magazine, Death on Arrival and the GODLY Ill-Literature. The actual metal press, so no reviews on this so far….!!!! I have Myrkur back catalogue and gave all the albums a spin again and this album I gave its 150 to 250 spins, that is required to review a albums, most webzines these days crank out thousands of review a day, with scores all over the place and scores pulled out of thin air, I wonder if those reviewers even listen to heavy metal @ all !!!

I never ever review an album review, without purchasing a copy of that album, while most of my readers who meet me in public want to read about ONLY THRASH METAL, and the other half of my fans are fans of artist such as the Birthday Massacre. So as a AVANT-GARD METAL age, DEATH METAL age, GOTHIC METAL age publication. These are the styles and genres that are the most relevant since 1990….especially death metal in my eyes!!!!

 

As a metal fan since the Summer of 1978….I got to see the brilliant first wave of black metal first hand, I have each of those artist classic albums and found successors to each of those legendary artist…!! And after all that is completed, I always l@@k for new ground-breaking artist, those who have there own artistic vision, which can be easily defined by bands who have their own style and own sound!!! Myrkur is one of these artist, i can easily tell who it is from the guitar tone and the timbre of the vocalist alone!!

 

As a classical trained musician myself, it is easy to spot another classically trained musician, because what happens when a metal artist adds MUSIC, to there SUPREME IMMORTAL METALLIC ART OF THE HIGHEST ORDER, evocation occurs, ie being FLOORED, MIND-BLOWN, AND CHILLS UP AND DOWN THE SPINE ……“THE MUSIC I CHERISH THE MOST…can be categorized as bombastic, as well as introspective.  Myrkur “Mareridt” is a deeply rewarding listening experience, as well as being metal as fuck!!!!!!!!!!!!!  THIS is worthy of your attention, trust and respect. KICK ASS METAL’s  recommends Myrkur “Mareridt” to added to your serious metallic metal album collection, so as long as innovation, talent, originality, authenticity are key factors for you to consider alongside the savage factor metal is known for !!!

 

From the darkness of Scandinavia emerges MYRKUR. Hailing from Denmark, the one-woman project signed to renowned independent label Relapse Records in 2014 off the strength of just one EP, its eponymous debut (released September 2014). Envisioned and realized by classically-trained multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Amalie Bruun, MYRKUR combined the rawness of second-wave black metal bands like Ulver and Darkthrone with a natural, ethereal sonic beauty. MYRKURintroduced a wholly unique perspective on the genre of black metal, one that immediately put her on the map and caught the attention of listeners and publications worldwide.

Though the word “myrkur” means “darkness” in Icelandic, Bruun’s music encompasses far more than just that one dimension of music: with its distinct sense of Nordic isolation, MYRKUR is a definitively brutal creation, yet also a delicate and feminine one. Choral and folk elements abound, lending the music a mystical, legendary quality and an untouchable equilibrium between dark and light. MYRKUR’s influences range from nature to traditional Scandinavian folklore to Norse mythology and far beyond. Bruun elaborates, “I always dreamed about becoming a Huldra, an Elver girl, a Valkyrie, the goddess Freja. These powerful women in Norse Mythology have an element of beauty and mystique, but they are also deadly.”

That power was more than evident on MYRKUR’s EP, but fully came into its own on Bruun’s first full-length M, released via Relapse in August 2015. Featuring production and guest appearances from renowned metal legends such as Krystoffer “Garm” Rygg (Ulver), Teloch (Mayhem/Nidingr) and Christopher Amott, M showcased Bruun’s learned and mature perspective on black metal alongside her prodigious compositional and vocal talents. As Decibel Magazine put it in its 8/10 review, M is “a black metal record that respects tradition without drowning in it.” Publications including NPR, Stereogum, Pitchfork, Spin and dozens of other outlets worldwide have shared this sentiment, hailing M and MYRKUR as the very thing they stand for – not a drastic reinvention, not an atavistic homage, but a unique, timeless, and true expression of black metal. Now with two acclaimed releases and several live performances (including one at Denmark’s Roskilde Festival) under her belt, nobody but MYRKUR is in a better place to help Scandinavia reclaim its rightful throne as the global leader of extreme music.

MYRKUR is:
Amalie Bruun – all instruments & composition

The below following list is just our subjective/ objective favorite albums of all-time in the orthodox and innovative death/black realm @ the KICK ASS METAL offices — were a GOTHIC AGE/DEATH METAL/ AVANT-GARDE METAL – AGE PUBLICATION…so no one is really going to agree with this list!! And our articles are never for the metal fans who have been with heavy metal since Friday the 13th -Februay 13th, 1970 0r September 20th, 1980, but for new readers, since Ill-Literature publication is our biggest influence we try to write in there style, and this page is always for the newer fans of heavy metal, since there really are no heavy metal publications around as killer as say Voices from the Darkside. We have to olde NorskSvartMetall webzine top 100 ablums around somewhere in our pages and will add those to this list!!!

The year is 1994 and the boss of the publication that I worked for previous to this one, walks in the offices and takes down from the offices heavy metal hall of fame, the greatest album of all-time at the time which was Deicide’s “Deicide” since this was the beginning of the Death Metal AGE, as all the thrash bands, minus a half a dozen were all washed up and all about to sell out, on or around August 12th, 1991, all the thrash clubs were about to close down. The boss takes down the Deicide Press Photo and Deicide “Deicide” album, and puts up the Cradle of Filth “The Principle of Evil Made Flesh” and points to me, since I always compiled top 100 heavy metal albums list, and say to me “World’s Greatest Heavy Metal Band” and “World’s Greatest Heavy Metal Album”

That was 22 years ago !!!!!!!! …….. And our offices has 22 stacks of the 21 Cradle of Filth FUCKING ESSENTIAL Cradle of Filth releases !!! I have a second job always to make sure this done with in a calendar year, because as soon as January of each year comes I recollect the top 100 heavy metal albums of the golden age of heavy metal August 1st, 1981 to October 31st, 1986 as well as the top 100 heavy metal albums of the death metal age 1990 —present. So yesterday the new Cradle of Filth “Cryptoriana —The Seductiveness of Decay” was Unleashed on Planet Metal…..I bought 2 copies of this on digipack yesterday…!!!! And I was really excited, and of course this is a contender for album of the year alongside Infernäl Mäjesty “No God”

And the GODLY Major Ragers Torture Squad who hail from São Paulo, Brazil

So the album of the year publish the first list by October 30th of each year so you know what CD’s to pass out for Halloween, since every day is always Halloween @ every GOTHIC and GOTHIC METAL publication world-wide !!! I am starting to take pride in the fact I have survived publications such as Ill-literature, Industrialized Metal Webzine, Goth Metal World, and Avant Garde Metal…..!!!! If your a fan of the social network Vampire Freaks, then we hope we live up to our potential, of being the successors to Goth Metal World !!!!!!!!!!! Celtic Frost “Into The Pandemonium” is the album which gave this webZine its direction, alongside Avant-Garde Metal and Ill-Literature webZines…..As a heavy metal fan since August 1st, 1978, there was no gothic metal until November 2nd, 1987 and of course there was only traditional metal and underground metal to listen too and innovation were only in small and safe increments..!! So Cradle of Filth “The Principle of Evil Made Flesh” was the godsend…..be the change in the world you want to see and be strange !!

GOTHIC METAL AND AVANT-GARDE Metal yeah MAKE IT….. we don say “Weird” we say KICK ASS…The two genres HAVE the same birthday from the same progenitor release

http://www.avantgarde-metal.com

 

 

I was already listenting to Celtic Frost “Into The Pandemonium” and Sabbat’s “History of a Time to Come” on a daily basis. Since I always love the more KICK ASS METAL RELEASES in heavy metal

 

 

As a Annihilator fan since day 1 with the first demos….!!!! I love the digipack version of this album, because one of the two bonus tracks is

Annihilator “Alison Hell”

Cradle of Filth’s “Cryptoriana — The Seductiveness of Decay” is the 2nd full length Lindsay Schoolcraft has been on as the metal legends and metal gods keyboard player and backing vocalist….and while I worship hard every era of Cradle of Filth…the last 2 albums she has been on are total KICK ASS METAL ALL THE WAY…and is in the fucking essential realm when talking about SUPREME IMMORTAL METAL ART OF THE HIGHEST ORDER !!!!! …aka the KICK ASS METAL stuff ie, the true metal, the actual metal !!!!! !!!! But as the ONLY METAL PUBLICATION that specializes in KEYBOARD-centic heavy metal or heavy metal featuring the best of the best bands with the WORLD’S GREATEST KEYBOARD players….!!!!! You know the future this page will be stamped with all-things Lindsay Schoolcraft !!!!! Because while all day every-day is Halloween, i will still add to my collection the greatest albums of all-time no matter the genre, especially avant-garde, classical, avant-garde classical, gothic, gothic metal and all things bad ass and kick ass !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

It should be obvious to the oblivious that 2 of my major influences

Metal MaidenS

http://www.metalmaidens.com

and

Sonic Cathdral

http://www.soniccathedral.com

 

Are stamped all-over this page !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

 

You can trust ONLY YOUR SELF, THE FIRST 6 BLACK SABBATH ALBUMS, (i also have a few choice ones, after this fact, the first 6) AND THE 21 CRADLE OF FILTH RELEASES THAT are Studio albums, live albums, compilations, DVDs.

 

And for those who disagree with our 22 years onslaught coverage of Cradle of Filth. Here is the world’s smallest violin ….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cry me a river of blood &  Play me a song FUCKERS !!!!!!!!!!!………………In 2024 i am psyched to feature the whole year of  2024…..CRADLE OF FILTH 30 YEARS OF THE WORLDS GREATEST HEAVY METAL BAND OF ALL-TIME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For those who are thinking what if they “Sell-Out” well i will catch you up to speed….cause your slowwwwwww ….. the gothic culture does not have a “concept” of bands “selling out”. Posers in the true metal community invented that bullshit story with a million of holes I can poke fun of and mock, endless for a million hours at a time  !!!!!!

 

And I froth @ the mouth knowing I have bought every record collection of Cradle of Filth’s detractors……!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I enjoy that each of the of those assholes are now, soft rock fans, and worse …….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Earlier today, a KICK ASS MEAL fan wanting to finance me a book, asked how much I would need to write a book in the vein of the Gary Sharpe-Young book….I Said 2 Million dollars….because I only do thinks i right and real way !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Metallic altars of heavy metal mayhem and heavy metal hall of fames are built around artist such as Cradle of Filth and “Cryptoriana — The Seductiveness of Decay” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! With stunning artwork from Arthur Berzinsh, this album is a true “must have” and FUCKING ESSENTIAL ALBUM …………..BUY OR FUCKING DIE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

THRASH AND RAGE AND BANG YOUR HEAD UNTIL YOUR BRAIN L@@KS LIKE A BLOODY PANCAKE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CHASTAIN’s “Surrender To No One” marks the return of original vocalist Leather Leone. Long considered one of the originators of the female power metal vocal style, Leather proves on the new CD she hasn’t lost anything from her glory days. Leather was the vocalist on the classic CHASTAIN albums: Mystery of Illusion, Ruler of the Wasteland, The 7th of Never, The Voice of the Cult, For Those Who Dare

Also returning to the band is original bassist Mike Skimmerhorn. The drums are now being handled by Stian Kristoffersen (Pagan’s Mind, Firewind).

Guitarist David T. Chastain states, “Leather and I picked up right from where we left off as if no time had elapsed since the For Those Who Dare tour. We have been working on this material for nearly a year and it was difficult to choose from all of the songs we had written. Our goal was to keep one foot in the ‘old days’ and one foot in 2013. Stian’s drumming helped modernize the sound. I think Leather is basically the same vocalist as she was in our earlier days. Judging from her recent Keep It True concert it is obvious she still has what it takes in the live arena. I feel ‘Surrender To No One’ fits right in with her other CHASTAIN albums.”

Leather further adds, “After our absence through the years, the title of this work says it all! I find much of it to be classic CHASTAIN. There are undeniably some modern concepts involved, life changes, we grow!! But I guarantee it will not disappoint, it is a CHASTAIN Cd!”

 

CHASTAIN’s “We Bleed Metal” is the follow up to the band’s 2013 reunion Cd “Surrender To No One.” That release marked the return of original vocalist Leather Leone. She has long been considered one of the originators of the female power metal vocal style. Leather was the vocalist on the classic CHASTAIN albums: Mystery of Illusion, Ruler of the Wasteland, The 7th of Never, The Voice of the Cult and For Those Who Dare.
Also returning to the band is original bassist Mike Skimmerhorn. The drums are now being handled by Stian Kristoffersen (Pagan’s Mind, Firewind).
Guitarist David T. Chastain states, “This new album is a continuation of the sound we created on Surrender To No One. We still have a foot in the past but we are also embracing the future. I have my style of writing metal and it isn’t ever going to change to any major degree. I tried to write on some subjects that are important to me: The financial systems inevitable downfall, religious insanity, mankind’s self-destructive nature, our own self-preservation and few other esoteric topics. Leather proves on the new CD she hasn’t lost anything from her glory days. Stian’s kicks the band to the next level, as he is the youngest member with the most modern influences. I think this is my most ‘shredtastic’ CHASTAIN guitar work since ‘The 7th of Never’ era. I think all in all this is one of the best CHASTAIN releases in the catalog. Of course it is hard for me to be objective about a Cd until about 10 years after it comes out.”
Leather adds, “After our absence through the years, the response has been fantastic! I find much of it to be classic CHASTAIN. There are undeniably some modern concepts involved!! But I guarantee it will not disappoint, it is 100% a CHASTAIN Cd!”
The title track “WE BLEED METAL” should be a battle cry for all who live and love Metal! The song is about the comradery between Metal lovers and overcoming the struggle, barriers and stigmas society places on the music. “We will sacrifice and we will pay the price cause WE BLEED METAL!”

 

CHASTAIN’s We Bleed Metal 17 is the next generation of the band’s 2015 Cd We Bleed Metal. Guitarist David T Chastain explains the new release: “As everyone knows I don’t tour any longer and spend all of my time in the studio. So I experiment a lot with both new and old material. We Bleed Metal 17 has the same drums and vocals as the original We Bleed Metal but it has 100% new and completely different music. A totally different sound and feel from the original version. Also on most CHASTAIN albums there are always at least 5 guitar tracks per song. However on We Bleed Metal 17 there is only 1 guitar track per song. So this is a very live sounding release with actually more lead guitar than the original. This is as close as anyone is ever going to get to a high quality live CHASTAIN album. There is 1 guitar, bass, drums, lead vocal and a couple of harmony vocals. Also We Bleed Metal 17 has a very live sound with more drum room mics incorporated into the mix. You can hear Stian Kristoffersen’s drums more as they are front and center on this release without a massive wall of rhythm guitars taking up space in the mix.”
Returning vocalist Leather Leone adds: “This is my favorite CHASTAIN release since Mystery of Illusion!”
David continues, “As time goes on I have learned to enjoy the more stripped down sounds. In the early days sometimes there would be 20 guitar tracks on a song. Needless to say it was impossible to replicate that live and a major reason I never liked to tour. To me there was too much missing from the recorded versions for me to enjoy myself.”
Vocalist Leather Leone was the vocalist on the classic CHASTAIN albums: Mystery of Illusion, Ruler of the Wasteland, The 7th of Never, The Voice of the Cult and For Those Who Dare. Leather rejoined the band in 2013 with the release of the impressive Surrender To No One. She has just recently toured Europe as a solo artist with her new Brazilian backing band being billed as “Leather Leone: The Voice of Chastain.” Leather is putting the finishing touches on her new solo album that should be out later in 2017. Leather adds, “The response has been fantastic on my live concerts! I have been signing autographs for 20-year-old boys whose parents had turned them on to us. They come up to me crying. The boys from Brazil are so blown away by our fans. Spain, Germany and Sweden were crazy. I feel like I’m 20. The female fans are so hot and the boys in the band are loving it!”
Also returning for We Bleed Metal 17 is original CHASTAIN bassist Mike Skimmerhorn who once again lays the foundation so that the rest of the band can explore and create.
Guitarist David T. Chastain states, “This one live guitar sound is something I have been use to most of my professional life in concert situations but never recorded a metal record in that format. We still have a foot in the past but we are also embracing the future. I have my style of writing metal and it isn’t ever going to change to any major degree. Leather proves she hasn’t lost anything from her glory days. Stian’s kicks the band to the next level, as he is the youngest member with the most modern influences. For me this album is one of my favorite CHASTAIN releases in the catalog because it could be replicated100% in concert. I find myself being able to listen to We Bleed Metal 17 over and over.”
As the title track declares: “We will sacrifice and we will pay the price cause WE BLEED METAL!”
