The year is coming to an end and we are ready to kick 2017 to the curb and start hanging out with 2018. Per our tradition we recorded an end-of-year episode which this year brings together our top 25 metal albums for 2017. For those of you too busy or impatient to sit through a four-hour-plus podcast, here are the lists for this year. We start with the combined podcast Top 10 list (assembled for us by John from our individual lists, and unintentially verified by Mark) followed by our individual Top 25 lists. Enjoy!
