Topic name is pretty self-explanatory, I'm curious what albums do you consider as best this year in a top 5 or 10 list. Could be any kinds of genres obviously (electronic music or not), maybe I can explore some unknown stuff as well :D

Solstafir - Berdreyminn
THE album of 2017 for me. If you are into unconventional, moody, yet absolutely beautiful music you need to check this band out. If Pink Floyd fucked Sigur Ros while listening to black metal, this is how their baby would sound like. This is as beautiful as music can get in my opinion (+ those videos of theirss, hnnnnghh)


Linkin Park - One More Light
Extremely controversial album, even for me. Totally hated it at first, totally love it now. It's kinda sad that the music started to make sense once Chester hung himself. The album sounds so positive and upbeat on the outside, but those lyrics and so sad and desperately crying for help.


Depeche Mode - Spirit
Never been thaaaat much of a Depeche Mode fan, but this album totally made me one. Earlier this year i accidentally ended up on their concert promoting this album and i was constantly hooked. Depeche Mode should be a must have for every electronic music fan, as these guys are to a huge extent godfathers of electronic and dance music in general. + Dave Gahan has probably the most charismatic on stage persona i have ever witnessed on a concert, absolutely unreal.


High Contrast - Night Gallery
I'm not as much of a dnb fan as i used to be back in the years, but i will always eagerly wait for new High Contrast stuff with anticipation. This guy is one of those one-of-a-kind producers who's genius reaches far beyond their home genre's boarders. One day this guy will be considered to be a very fundamental part of dance music's canon. The way he can combine drum n bass with rock, pop, jungle, rnb, rap is just amazing


Eluveitie - Evocation II: Pantheon
The metal pioneers made a really unique project this year - all accoustic folkish album that sounds like it was taken straight from early middle age. There is of course a lot of simillar themed music out there, but when one of the most established pioneer folk metal bands does it, it sounds out of this world.


Alestorm - No Grave But The Sea
Somewhat of a guilty pleasure, but i just love these guys' comedy take on metal.
And the award for the lyrics of the year goes toooooo..... :+

My Metal top 10 of 2017. (Videolinks in the spoilers)

01. Immolation - Atonement (Oldschool Death Metal) [USA] - Quite possibly their best album since Dawn of Possession, and that's saying something. Amazing album!


02. Power Trip - Nightmare Logic (Thrash Metal) {USA] - Their debut was raw and all over the place, yet still enjoyable. On Nightmare Logic they've refined their blend of Thrash and Hardcore, and put together a stellar record filled to the brim with memorable riffs.


03. The Great Old Ones - EOD: A Tale Of Dark Legacy (Atmospheric Black Metal) [France] - I don't usually go for Atmo Black, but this masterpiece of Lovecraft worship is insanely good.


04. Whoredom Rife - Dommedagskvad (Black Metal) [Norway] - This record could easily have been released in 1996, and no one could tell the difference, save for the improved production quality.


05. Beneath - Ephemeris (Technical Death Metal) [Iceland] - Iceland, in the metal scene, is mostly known for their amazing Black Metal bands, so imagine my surprise when I picked up this little gem and heard what it had to offer. Reminds me of bands such as Beyond Creation, Obscura, and to a lesser extend Necrophagist. Technical without going to the point of show-off.


06. Hideous Divinity - Adveniens (Technical Death Metal) [Italy] - A record of this magnitude has been coming from these Italian boys. Ever since their debut (Obeisance Rising) you could tell that something amazing was just waiting to come out, and now it has. As with Beneath, this is Tech without all the wanking.


07. Ulsect - Ulsect (Technical Death Metal) [Holland] - My first encounter with this band and I must say that I thoroughly enjoy what I'm hearing. The less polished approach (some calls this style Caverncore) works very well for this band. Reminds me of Ulcerate and Gorguts and all the right ways.


08. Svart Crown - Abreaction (Blackened Death Metal) [France] - Extremely aggressive and yet still very catchy. As this is another new band to me, I can't say how this stacks up against their earlier works, but that doesn't really matter.


09. Aosoth - V: The Inside Scriptures (Black Metal) [France] - A record I was very hyped for, and it ended up disappointing me at first, though over time, it opened up to me. Still not the mindshattering awesomeness I expected, but definitely a great record none the less.


10. Mork - Eremittens Dal (Black Metal) {Norway] - These guys have definitely listened to a lot of (early) Darkthrone, and it shows. Not that I mind (obviously) as you can never have too much Darkthrone.


Places 11-20: (In no particular order)
Ulvegr - Titahion: Kaos Manifest, Nightbringer - Terra Damnata, Azarath - In Extremis, The Drip - The Haunting Fear of Inevitability, Ofermod - Sol Nox, Maze of Sothoth - Soul Demise, Firespawn - The Reprobate, Morbid Angel - Kingdoms Disdained, SepticFlesh - Codex Omega, Maat - Monuments Will Enslave

An amazing year for Black- and Death Metal, and 2018 promises to be the same with releases from Sulphur Aeon and Odious Mortem already confirmed.

Disappointments:
Havok - Conformicide (Terrible in every way), Decrepit Birth - Axis Mundi (solid music, dreadful vocals), Goatwhore - Vengeful Ascension (Horribly generic - they can do so much better), Kreator - Gods of Violence (Boring, melodic garbage. Only good song on the album is Totalitarian Terror), Vallenfyre - Fear Those Who Fear Him (Boooooring as fuck)
