Yesterday we re-posted a lot of year-end lists from “big platform” music sites and print zines, or at least the portions of them that included metal albums (where such portions existed). I’ve come across another one since then, and it’s a list from Exclaim!
For those who may not know, Exclaim! Media Inc., which was established in 1991, describes itself (here) as “Canada’s foremost source of news and information on the best in emerging new music”. In its print format, Exclaim! has “a monthly circulation of over 100,000 copies distributed through more than 3,000 outlets across Canada”. Exclaim.ca is the company’s digital platform, which focuses on streaming music, news, reviews, interviews and original video content across a range of music genres.
Yesterday, Exclaim! published its staff list of The Top 10 Metal and Hardcore Albums of 2016.
