Metalhead Marv’s Top 10 Albums of 2023

So many albums to pick this year!! Saying that i need to expand my metal taste in music and start listening to newer metal bands. My friend finally got me listening to bands like In Flames. Heck i'm even going to a Meshuggah concert this Friday. I'm more into listening to older metal bands like Metallica and Metal Church. Hopefully it will change in the future and here's my picks for this year!

Who? That's right Dokken came back this year with a new album and it rocks! Dokken was famous in the 80's with albums such as "Tooth and Nail" and "Back for the Attack". Check out songs like the "Fugitive" and "Gypsy" off the new album. Jon Levin shreds it on guitar!

75 year old Alice Cooper is still going strong after five decades in the music business.

Not as great as his previous albums but the album still delivers. Check out the songs "I'm Alice" and "Welcome to the Show".

Cooper brings back former guitarist Kane Roberts on the song "Dead Don't Dance".

Canadian rockers Sven Gali return with a killer new album "Bombs and Battlescars". Check out the songs "Coming Home" and "Monster".

The band is best known for the songs "Tie Dyed Skies" and "Under The Influence".

The album also features a cover of the Triumph classic "Spellbound" which features a video with drummer Gil Moore.

7. 𝐔.𝐃.𝐎. - π“πŽπ”π‚π‡πƒπŽπ–π

Does Udo ever slow down? Seems like every year he has a new album coming out. Nothing wrong with that though as his new album "Touchdown" is a good album.

Check out the songs "Fight For The Right" and "Isolation Man".

6. πŒπ„π“π€π‹π‹πˆπ‚π€ - πŸ•πŸ π’π„π€π’πŽππ’

All i want from this band is another great album like "Master of Puppets" before they retire. That isn't much to ask is it?

Check out the songs "72 Seasons" and "Screaming Suicide".

To be honest i hardly ever listen to this album. Just be thankful it's not "St. Anger"

5. πƒπŽπ‘πŽ - π‚πŽπππ”π„π‘π„π’π’ - π…πŽπ‘π„π•π„π‘ π’π“π‘πŽππ† 𝐀𝐍𝐃 ππ‘πŽπ”πƒ

Doro, Heavy Metal's "Metal Queen" is back again with her 14th album.

She does an amazing cover of Judas Priest's "Living After Midnight", which she performs with Rob β€˜The Metal God’ Halford.

Overkill never disappoints and again i always seem to place any new Overkill album in my Top Ten Metal albums of the year.

Vocalist Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth shows no signs of slowing down. Check out the songs "Wicked Place" and "The Surgeon".

3. 𝐄𝐋𝐄𝐆𝐀𝐍𝐓 π–π„π€ππŽππ’ - π‡πŽπ‘ππ’ π…πŽπ‘ 𝐀 π‡π€π‹πŽ

The band delivers an outstanding album and you must check out the songs "Pick a God and Prey" and "Making Monsters".
