Albums from 2016 I’d Like to Hear More

This post is something of a “gimme” It’s a list of albums that were of great interest for me but for one reason or another simply didn’t get enough time to be featured prominently. Some of these came out too near the end of the year (looking at you Urfaust and Cultes des Ghoules), some I had no means of hearing (Darkthrone, naturally), and many others I just didn’t give the time they likely deserved. This should be read as a list of things that interested me that I’ll likely listen to at greater length in 2017 but could not in good faith include on a list of albums from 2016.  Every one of these has been examined at least a couple times and is on my “to hear more” list, I just don’t have it in me to pretend to know them better than I do. Numbered for my count, not to indicate any preference.
