Ok the year is almost half over. What are some of your favorite albums from the first 6 months of 2017? And what are you looking forward to in the 2nd half of the year?

Oh man, I haven't really bought anything.

*a quick look*

I have five 2017 CDs. I think the new Iced Earth is my favourite so far, but it's also so new it's still on constant rotation. I can't possibly compare it to any other 2017 releases yet. But it's a cool record and I like it much better than Plagues of Babylon.

The new Skyclad maybe then comes second. That's also new for me, so I have very little to say about it yet. The others I own are Axxis (solid), Ayreon (a semi-letdown) and Blaze Bayley (good).

The next instant purchase for me is the new Rage album.

I've only bought one CD released this year, Overkill's the Grinding Wheel. I have my eye on a few released this year and will get them eventually. Off the top of my head, I want Grave Digger and Iced Earth.

Mastadon, Emperor of Sand (nothing special)
Doomsday Kingdom, st-----a must have for any Candlemass, and or Wolf fans.

I've only bought two '17 releases thus far -- Overkill and Body Count. I like'em both just fine, for whatever that's worth.

I've purchased nine 2017 releases so far, and to be quite frank, none of them have been that great or outstanding in my opinion. None of them have been terrible or anything like that, but most of them have been "good" at best. The only one that stands out most is the "novelty album" Galactic Empire. I've probably played that one most. The kids and I both enjoy it.

Part of the problem is that 8 of the 9 new releases are from established bands that I'm already familiar with. I pretty much know what I'm in for and for the most part, they deliver. Not bad at all, just...expected.

There are a handful of upcoming releases that I'm still looking forward to, but they'll probably fall into the same dilemma. Been there, done that, moving on. And a few that are out now, but I just haven't picked up yet...

Alice Cooper
Foo Fighters
Kenny Wayne Shepherd
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
LA Guns
Doomsday Kingdom
Deep Purple
Confess
42 Decibel
Black Star Riders

Lackluster year thus far - most of the big bands released things last year, but there have been some gems:

Overkill - The Grinding Wheel
Grave Digger - Healed By Metal
Sanctuary - Inception
Satan's Hallow - Satan's Hallow
Striker - Striker
Metalian - Midnight Rider
Night Demon - Darkness Remains

I'm looking forward to the following:

Walpyrgus - Walpyrgus Nights
Accept - The Rise Of Chaos
Venom Inc. - Ave
Portrait - Burn The World

What did you think of this one? I liked their last one, Jail, but I read a lukewarm review of this new one which made me hesitant to purchase.
