Vote for your favourite album of 2016 so far

Album sleeves from 2016

Metal Hammer recently revealed its 20 albums of the year so far and we must admit, there are some absolutely killer records in there – some we’ll no doubt see near the top of our End Of Year lists this December. But putting them into an order of greatness can be rather difficult, and the source of endless bickering and Nerf gun fights in the office… so that’s where you come in. We’re asking Hammer readers to choose their favourite album of the year so far. Obviously, we couldn’t create a poll to include every single LP that’s been released over the past six months, so we’re limiting it to the 30 albums below.

Which album do you think has burned brightest in the world of rock and metal so far this year? Let us know!
