PLAYLIST 2017

Here we are, another year has come to an end: happy 2018! The staff agreed once again to write this nowadays classic article up. There it is, so: the playlist of the year you all readers of the most aristocratic webzine of the Italic underground.

Who made the most of the «top 5» this year? Well, here we go: Myrkur and Progenie Terrestre Pura have been named 3 times each, then there's In Tormentata Quiete (2), Hallatar (2) and Need (2). Out of the Top Demo / Ep / Split, the most featured name is Eye Sea Black's (3 times), followed by Mesarthim (2). Also worth mentioning are Párodos (2) and Katla (2), two bands you should not miss indeed!

From this edition flop 5 becomes flop 3 — because it's easier to fill and, being completely honest, nobody wants to listen to truly bad music. Iced Earth latest effort has been named the most times (3) as flop, together with Arch Enemy (2), Aborym (2) and Electric Wizard (3). On the other hand, you'll be reading Cradle Of Filth in both flop and top … Looks like their album's quite complex!

That's it, scrolling down the page you'll find the list each of us reviewers wrote to wrap up the past year, as always. Something unusual, new and different is the playlist itself: this year, since we've now got ourselves a Spotify profile, our playlist will be uploaded there: enjoy!
