Adam’s Top Albums of 2017

2017 was one helluva roller coaster of a year, except for music. Nearly all of my favorite bands released albums, and toured the world. Here are my favorite releases, in no particular order.

The Birthday Massacre: Under Your Spell

A captivating hybrid of 80’s, electronica, and aggressive guitars. The expansive breadth of The Birthday Massacre’s signature sound.

Starset: Vessels

The soundtrack crafted of galactic proportions fused with dark, cinematic progressions. A brilliant follow-up the the band’s 2014 debut.

Motionless In White: Graveyard Shift

Amazing orchestra reworkings of the band’s previous tracks, and 2 new songs. Think of this as a new twist on a “Greatest Hits” release.

3teeth: <shutdown.exe>

A soundtrack built for anarchy and the end of days.

Continuing his work with composer Tyler Bates, Manson returns with his 10th studio album. One of his most emotionally visceral and musically brutal releases to date.
