Misophonia is king as I discover the soothing powers of north-western grindcore, and new records by Daniel Romano and Thy Art Is Murder make an impression.
Last.fm hasn’t updated my Last.year page yet. That link will likely update once the new data is out. Feel free to take a peak at my previous most listened to posts, too:
My top artists for 2017
|1 ↑||Daniel Romano||619|
|5 ↓||Thy Art Is Murder||214|
|7 →||Bad Religion||178|
I am not surprised to see Daniel Romano at the top of this list. What I am surprised to see is only 619 scrobbles! It’s nice to see a few other familiar faces up here. Thy Art Is Murder drops down two spots to #5 and Bad Religion holds steady at #7.
My top albums for 2017
|Rank||Artist — Album||Plays|
|1||The Drip — The Haunting Fear Of Inevitability||346|
|2 ↑||Anaal Nathrakh — The Whole of the Law||317|
|3||Daniel Romano — Modern Pressure||235|
|4||Behemoth — The Satanist||218|
|5||Aversions Crown — Xenocide||151|
|6||Sam Outlaw — Tenderheart||139|
|7 ↓||Ghost — Meliora||131|
|8||Thy Art Is Murder — Dear Desolation||130|
|9||Full of Hell — Trumpeting Ecstasy||128|
|10||Daniel Romano — If I’ve Only One Time Askin’||126|
Again, we have some holdouts from 2016. The Whole of the Law by Anaal Nathrakh is still a favorite at work. I also had to revisit Meliora by Ghost a few times, as they had a few new releases this year that made me want to go back to this gem, including a live record just a few weeks ago.
The only artist to make the list twice this year is Daniel Romano. This year he bested his best record, “If I’ve Only One Time Askin’” with “Modern Pressure.”

Being an album guy, my top songs list isn’t all that interesting. These pretty much reflect the song order of my top albums. It is sort of interesting to see how they intersect, I guess.
