Top Death and Thrash Metal releases of 2016

Here we present what we at Infernal Masquerade think have been the most interesting Death and Thrash Metal releases of 2016.

Honorable Mention: Vex – Sky Exile (2016)

Perfectly mixing stuff from Death/Thrash/Melodic Metal into one exciting album, Vex never runs out of cool ideas to try in their songs.

5. Testament – Brotherhood of the Snake (2016)

Bay Area Thrash titans deliver yet another uncompromising release which has an old-school vibe

4. Teethgrinder – Nihilism (2016)

Crushingly powerful, this Brutal Death/Grindcore release will blow up your speakers when played loudly.

3. Centinex – Doomsday Rituals (2016)

Old-school Swedish Death metal at its best with this excellent release from the legendary Centinex.

2. Sodom – Decision Day (2016)

Sodom continues to get better with time and "Decision Day" is the perfect example of this.

1. Brujeria – Pocho Aztlan (2016)

Taking the top spot this year we have Brujeria and their triumphant retrun of their politically charged music... which fits right in with the current political climate.
