(As part of this year’s LISTMANIA series, our friend from the Dominican Republic, Vonlughlio, prepared a list of Top 20 brutal death metal albums from among the vast number that he listened to in 2017… although it actually works out to more than 20 because of ties at various positions, and at the end there is a list of Honorable Mentions as well.)
- Abuse – Nothing Is Safe
After 16 years from their debut album, they released their sophomore album, and although it is not as raw or near the length of Like a Virgin they maintained their essence as a ferocious, fast blast-beast with nasty vocals. This has a special place for me and I appreciate that the band decided to make more music. Hope they continue but won’t take as long for a follow-up.
