Metal Kaoz Top 10 Albums for 2017

It's f-ing true... 2017 continued the unfortunate 'taking beloved musicians away of our music-lives' streak, with Warrel Dane's sudden loss being the latest (at least, till the moment these lines were written), highlighting the huge gap left behind which there is no way to get filled. So, with a heavy heart, the hardworking crüe of METAL KAOZ had, once more, put the headphones on and revisit all the releases that saw the light of day in 2017 in order to choose the ones that stayed the most time inside our CD players, on turntables or in iPods - a task that seems so Herculean, no matter how many years have passed and how many times we've taken it.

So yes, it's time to present you the top10 of each editor of METAL KAOZ, in case you're interested in taking a peek of what's going on inside our heads and finding out more about our music taste, and even discover some gems that slipped through the cracks this year.

I guess it's time for less talking, so let's do this; ladies and gentlemen, here's METAL KAOZ's crüe's Top 10s for 2017 - grab a cold one and 'njoy!!
