^Obituary's new album is great, as is Xibalba's new EP. Those are my favorite death metal albums of the year so far.

I passed 40 reviews for 2017 albums recently, but my total heard is over 100. I need to catch up on actually writing about a few more of them. 

Top album is currently oltreLuna by Progenie Terrestre Pura.

This is mine grouped by star ratings, some of them are only a first impression though:

5*

Ayreon - The Source

MindMaze - Resolve
Pure Wrath - Ascetic Eventide
Ungfell - Tôtbringære
Vandroya - Beyond the Human Mind

4.5*

Atlas Pain - What the Oak Left
Baltimor - Eepos

The Doomsday Kingdom - The Doomsday Kingdom
Windswept - The Great Cold Steppe
Wormwood - Ghostlands: Wounds form a Bleeding Earth

4*

Au Champ Des Morts - Dans La Joie
Crystal Fairy - Crystal Fairy
Dool - Here Now, There Then
Doom's Day - The Whore
Falls of Rauros - Vigilance Perennial

3.5*

Crystal Viper - Queen of the Witches
Dumal - The Lesser God
Hey Satan - Hey Satan
Ritual Haze - Machine Sun
Scáth na Déithe - Pledge Nothing But Flesh

3*

I've been sort of keeping track of all the releases for this year that I've heard in a private RYM list, but I'm pretty bad at keeping it up to date. I'll try to get it sorted by the time of the next album of the year vote.

I have listened to very few 2017 albums, compared to new albums the previous years. Just don´t have as much time to review new releases these days. Thankfully I have a shitload of backlog reviews, so I won´t dry out any time soon. At least not when it comes to old releases.

I only have five 2017 albums so far (ordered the Helion Prime but for some reason it hasn't shipped to me...haven't gotten charged until it does).

I have the Pain Of Salvation, Witherfall, MindMaze, Pyramaze, and Seven Kingdoms. I like all of them, but the MindMaze is my favorite so far. Killer album, MindMaze certainly topped their 2014's Back From The Edge.

We're taking our time Chris. The priority has been on getting up to speed on the set ready for gigs so haven't done a lot yet. Don't even have a full album of songs yet. They're likely to be completed song by song I suspect but we have some great stuff written. It's likely to be heavier than anything the band have done before based on what we have so far.

Scenario II - A New Dawn

^ Black metal albums I think you'd like (you probably have a few on your list to hear already though). Not counting anything that isn't out yet.

Fen - Winter
Saille - Gnosis (all bar one track is on Spotify now)
Lorn - Arrayed Claws
Wiegedood - De Doden Hebben Het Goed II
Pure Wrath - Ascetic Eventide 
Fell Ruin - To the Concrete Drifts (black/doom)
Imperceptum - The Eternal Path to Nothingness  (black/doom)

I haven't really listened to much from other genres that either isn't out yet or already on your list, but Ex Deo's new one is a solid symphonic death metal release.

Pain of Salvation - In the Passing Light of Day (Progressive Metal)



I've been far too busy to listen to new music or do anything for that matter but i have been able to hear the new Pain Of Salvation. Shocked you're giving it only a 1 star. I quite like it myself. Not comparable to the classics but certainly an interesting listen for me. At least a 3.5 for me :)
