Best Metal Albums of 2016 - #20 - #11

I wanted to give you a list in written form, but don't think they need much explanation. Not like it really matters at this point, you have either checked out the records or you haven't so not sure why a blurb from me would influence you more than just giving a song a listen. So this list will not make you flip through pages, it won't drive clicks or keep you on the page for a long time scrolling or reading, just a list of my favorites from the year!

You can hear my explanation on the Metalsucks Podcast #173 (my final episode), and I will do a year end show on NO CONTROL Radio December 30th, so if you want to hear it bundled with more detail, you can check those out, otherwise, enjoy the list!


#20 Lacuna Coil - Delirium (Century Media) 






#19 Cobalt - Slow Forever (Profound Lore) 






#18 Rotting Christ - Rituals (Seasons of Mist) 






#17 Gojira - Magma (Roadrunner)






#16 Be'lakor - Vessels (Napalm)






#15 Khemmis - Hunted (20 Buck Spin)






#14 Whores - Gold (eOne)






#13 Toothgrinder - Nocturnal Masquerade (Spinefarm)






#12 Helms Alee - Stillicide (Sargent House)






#11 Trap Them - Crown Feral (Prosthetic)






Catch the rest of the list coming next week!

NO CONTROL Radio HD3 Chart and Adds: 12/5/16

It has finally come to an end, well, at least the way the industry works, there are not really any new albums dropping this time of year other than a few scragglers. What we are already seeing is the influx of singles from 2017, albums that may not hit the streets until Feb are already debuting new tunes...that's a good thing I guess.

So I will keep giveing you charts for teh next couple weeks, but almost done for the year and vacation time!

ADDs:
No adds till 2017

NO CONTROL Radio Replay 11/25/16

It's Black Friday, Turkey Day was rather uneventful around our family, although I know some of you may have had some fun encounters by the looks of social media, but I think everyone is still in shock to some extent. I didn't bother to take off tonight, instead we rolled right into a regular show tonight, it got me out of the house and that's what I needed tonight.

We had a bunch of new tunes from Iron Reagan, Theocracy, Power Trip, Metallica, Lamb of God, Lorna Shore, Code Orange, Whores, Avenged Sevenfold and more classics from Iron Maiden, Ministry, Faith No More, Death, Whitechapel, Deadhorse, Motorhead and more!
