Wonderbox Metal End of Year List – Best Metal of 2017

2017 was an amazing year for music, with so many top-notch albums seeing the light of day. I pretty much say this every year, of course, but that doesn’t seem to stop it being true. With this in mind, the 2017 list was especially hard to put together, and I agonised over this one more than I did for any of the lists in previous years.

So, without further ado, let’s get right down to it…


Brume – Rooster

What a rich, luscious album this is! Burning with passion and aching with sensuous depth, Brume’s debut album is an atmospheric doom metal experience that transcends pure doom metal. With a psychedelic heart and a love of The Riff, the songs on Rooster merge atmosphere and heaviness with style and substance. When the heartrending guitars are combined with the captivating vocals of their talented singer, well, it’s quite relevatory. This collection of tracks offers many such hair-raising moments.
