Definitely looking like 2017 belongs to doom metal based on the current 2017 chart on RYM. I need to give that Ruins of Beverast album some more listens. Spectral Voice review is lined up next.

The Ruins of Beverast is a real grower. When I reviewed it I was initially going to give it a 3 and ended up with a 5.

I've done a little bit of re-ordering within rating tiers and I may adjust a few scores to realign with my rating system before the year's end, but I present my 70 album review list (four reviews still waiting to be posted publicly - will put one up this evening or tomorrow morning).

Very nice list! I need to listen to some of those albums before the year ends.

Nice list Ashley, there's a few there I still want to check out. 

That Lovebites album may be about to dethrone oltreLune on my 2017 list. Been writing a review on and off for a day or two now, piecing bits together, listening to it over and over. I thought it was going to settle on a 4.5, but then I cracked up the volume for my current listen which has sealed the deal on a 5.0.

It's a really good one. Surprised me completely considering the Japanese all female scene has a bit of a reputation for being influenced by j-pop.

^ Which they kind of look like they're going to be playing from the promo pictures (I even googled all girl j-pop groups to make sure I wouldn't out of line pointing this out in my upcoming review and lo and behold their picture came up). In a way though that gives the album all the more impact when you realise that they're pretty far removed from everything else that's come before them in that growing scene.

I'm on 154 total heard with 73 reviewed. Had 80 reviewed for last year, but a handful of those have come after the event, so I'm expecting this to be my best year in a while if I can keep the pace up, since 2015 was the year of the burnout. It's probably past the time I add unreviewed 2016 releases into my main list to be honest: I have a few unranked that I've actually got the CD of even.
