In a fast-paced world where you have to work at least 8 hours a day and then take care of the rest of your daily duties, spending time looking up more bands and new albums may seem irresponsible in the eyes of others. Fuck them! I’ve been overwhelmed a lot by my new job lately and posting updates got a little “out of schedule.” To make up for the silence, however, I have created a list of 9 black metal albums of 2016 that made me a huge impression. 

9 bands of a very distinguishing character and 9 albums bound by one common feature. They are killing it big time! Instead of rambling more bullshit, I would rather give you an opportunity to enjoy the music at your own pace. Be aware that the titles are links to the artists’ Facebook pages. If you are curious and want to get to know more about them and their past creations, do pay them a visit.
