Doomed & Stoned - The Very Best Records of 2015

The Very Best Records of 2015

It’s been one amazing year with, let’s be honest, far too many good releases! Sharing them all has been a challenge, much less writing about those that really impressed us. Thankfully, I’ve got a great team of writers who are champions for the heavy scene around the world.

Next week, Doomed & Stoned will present its year-end awards. For now, here are a few of our personal favorites from 2015. Represented are my own picks, along with those of Alex, Ben, Frank, Gram, Melissa, Randy, Paul, Stephanie, and Zachary (Calvin’s picks will appear in a separate article). We hope you’ll check them out!
