It's been a good last six months — at least, if you like your music heavy, dark, headbangable and/or just plain fucked up. Below, we've compiled our favorite jams from the year so far, spanning rockstar-assisted industrial hardcore, NWOBHM icons' pyrotechnic return to form, a Deftones' surging comic-book–inspired solo cut, raging hip-hop from a metal-loving split-personality rapper, Māori thrash made by a trio of Kiwi teens, and everything in between. Blast our Spotify playlist below (check out more of our playlists here), and if you haven't already, dig into our list of the 25 Best Albums of 2018 So Far.
