2018 TOP TEN (and one more)

Hey brutalbangers,
so, 2018 is dead and 2019 has already started its path. I have to say that 2018 has been a really nice year for this 'zine, and this for various reasons. Firstly, it's a honor that always more and more labels, bands and promoters send me regularly their productions, and this means thay my work is good. Secondly, I'm pushing to make more hardcore punk-oriented this 'zine, since I love HC punk and we don't forget that this instinctive music influenced a lot of extreme metal genres, so I don't understand why many metalheads don't still today appreciate to the HC punk. Thirdly, finally I published a bunch of live reports throughout 2018, and I have to say that I prefer the live side of the music in comparison with the studio side.
But, speaking about the studio side, 2018 has been a year with plenty of fantastic releases, so the following is my 2018 TOP TEN releases, that are in a RANDOM ORDER. Despite the 2017 TOP TEN, this new one is about many different genres in order to range from technical death metal to groove metal, but also from hardcore punk to end the list with a surprise that doesn't belongs to the classic extreme metal standards of this 'zine. And soon you will realize that that so-called "surprise" represent the extra release of this TOP TEN...
So, enjoy this article and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
