MetalHead Year End List 2018

Welcome to the first annual MetalHead Year End List for 2018! First things first, this is NOT a list of the best metal albums of the year. Neither is it a complete or comprehensive list. Instead, this is simply a collection of some of my favorite metal albums that were released over the past twelve months. If your favorite release didn’t make this list, that doesn’t mean I didn’t like it. I’m certain there are very worthy albums that I haven’t heard, or simply forgot as I was compiling my list. You’ll also notice that I included two of my own releases from my label, Atomic Zombie Records, at the end of the list. Sure, it’s shameless self promotion, but that’s just a perk of running your own blog. Feel free to add your own list or album suggestions in the comments. And without further ado, here’s a bunch of kick-ass metal that had me headbanging throughout 2018.

Judas Priest – Firepower

Six Feet Under – Unburied

Skeletonwitch – Devouring Radiant Light

Alice In Chains – Rainier Fog

Skeletal Remains – Devouring Mortality

Gruesome – Twisted Prayers

Krisiun – Scourge Of The Enthroned

Sevendust – All I See Is War

Metal Allegiance – Volume II – Power Drunk Majesty

Monstrosity – The Passage Of Existence

Horrendous – Idol

Portal – Ion

Black Label Society – Grimmest Hits

Deicide – Overtures Of Blasphemy

Terrorizer – Caustic Attack

Bloodbath – The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn

Cryptopsy – The Book Of Suffering – Tome II

Hate Eternal – Upon Desolate Sands

  1. That Priest album was super enjoyable and more than I was expecting from them this late in their career.

    I don’t think Krisiun will ever top The Great Execution for me.

    Who the heck is Godless Angel?? j/k haha. Good list!


    1. The Great Execution is definitely one of their best! I don’t know much about this Godless Angel dude, other than that he’s quite handsome and spends way too much time talking about himself 😉 Thanks for checking out my list!
