First and Foremost...Happy New Years to all of our fans and loyal listeners!!! Every year Rock and Metal's Media Outlets put out their Top Album List of the year. This year Philly Rock Radio has chosen to join the party and put out its own list of Top Hard Rock/Heavy Metal albums for 2018. Of course, every list is a matter of opinion and this list is no different. However; we tried to hit every angle, nook, and cranny as we developed our own flavor of heavy hitters for the year. Without further ado, here is the list starting with five albums that just missed the cut but will receive honorable mentions:
25) Nashville Pussy - "Pleased to Eat You."
24) Sunstorm - "Road to Hell."
23) Ace Frehley - "Spaceman." We love Ace. This album follows a similar suit to Space Invader and Origins Vol. 1.
22) Metal Church - "Damned if You Do." Old School vibe...Brought You back to the ‘80s and ‘90s. Mike Howe's second album back with the band.
21) Saxon - "Thunderbolt." 22nd Album! That in itself says enough. Jam-packed, catchy, no-nonsense metal. Decent Album.
There you have it, folks...Philly Rock Radio's Top 20 Albums of 2018! Not bad for our first one. Hope you enjoyed the list and The Saloon Rock Club will actually host a show to coincide with the list where we will feature songs from these albums. With that we will leave you with a cut from the Firepower album...cheers to all and see you soon on the show!!!!!!!
