Best albums:

Whoa, what a year this has been for albums. New Slayer, new Enslaved, new Ensiferum to name but a few. My top ten albums for this year in order is listed below:

1. Wolfheart- Shadow World
2. Enslaved- In Times
3. Fear Factory- Genexus
4. Ensiferum- One Man Army
5. Cattle Decapitation- The Anthropocene Extinction
6. Slayer- Repentless
7. Kataklysm- Of Ghosts and Gods
8. Nyves- Anxiety
9. Nile- What should not be Unearthed
10. Heidevolk- Veula

Best live shows:

Now this is a tough one. I’ve been to so many good shows this year it’s hard to narrow this down to just ten. So I’m doing 12. Here’s my top 12 shows for this year of 2015:

1. Bloodstock Open Air
2. Ensiferum, Insomnium, Omnium Gatherum- O2 Islington, London
3. Persefone, Loch Vostok, One hour Hell- The Garage, Glasgow
4. Omnium Gatherum, Exile the traitor- Audio, Glasgow
5. Lords of the Land- Barrowlands, Glasgow
6. Slayer, Anthrax, Klevertak- O2 Accademy, Glasgow
7. Death Angel, Eradikator- Slade Rooms, Wolverhampton
8. Enslaved, Grand Magus, De Profundis- O2 Islington, London
9. Wolf, Enforcer, Dynamite- Audio, Glasgow
10. Alcest- Oran Mor, Glasgow
11. Nordic Giants- Cottiers Theatre, Glasgow
12. Alunah, Isak, Solar Suns- Bannermans, Edinburgh

Best venue:

The best venue goes to Audio in my opinion. I’ve been to a lot of gigs there this year and I’ve never once had a bad time there. The sound has always been awesome and the staff that work there are really friendly. I can’t recommend the place enough; It’s just that good.

Best news:

Ex Deo are coming back :D

Worst news:

Bataclan, Ghost Inside

Stuff to look forward to:

I’m really looking forward to Omnium Gatherum’s new album next year. I can say that it’s epic, awesome, incredible, wonderful, magical & spectacular and that my review of it will be coming soon.

Meshuugah new album, Immolation potential new album, Insomnium potential new album, all the epic shows coming up :D
