The 'Releases Of The Year' series are albums chosen by myself as the best release from each country / dependency known to have an official release in the year 2017. These are alphabetized in country order so are easy to navigate. Each award has national flag featured alongside the band name, Release Of The Year' and Facebook link (where provided)
Trinidadian Groove Metallers Lynchpin became the first metal band from the Caribbean to play in Europe, the highlight of their adventure was ultimately performing at the Wacken Open Air in Germany. They had won the W:O:A Metal Battle Caribbean competition and took their small scene to one of the world's largest. Now we at GMA doth our cap to these gentleman and hope that after their tour in Germany and The Netherlands, they they'll visit the UK.
Sadly they did not win the Wacken Metal Battle, nor came in the top five, but still representing your country is an achievement on it's own. The winners were Zombies Ate My Girlfriend, a Death Metal band from South Africa.
