Here are my top picks from 2018! Still gotta give the new Cannibal Corpse and Morbid Angel albums a listen...
1.Obituary: Obituary (they sound as fresh and brutal as ever)
2.Cannabis Corpse: Left Handed Pass (their best work since Tube of the Resinated)
3.Elder: Reflections of the Floating World (trippy, groovy, mesmerizing and heavy!)
4.Decrepit Birth: Axis Mundi (not their magnum opus but still killer)
5. Wintersun: Forest Seasons (people shit on this album but I liked it hahaha)
