18 Great Albums Celebrating An Anniversary In 2018


Debut album Count Your Blessings saw the Sheffield band derided for a lack of invention, but this follow up began to show the world what they were truly capable of doing. While the world would really take notice with 2010’s There Is A Hell…, Suicide Season ditched much of the deathcore in favour of more incisive, dynamic songwriting. ‘Repent! Repent! The end is nigh!’ screamed Oli Sykes on Chelsea Smile. But for BMTH, this was only the beginning…

Who doesn’t love a bit of nostalgia from time to time? Naturally, the beginning of a new year always feels like the perfect time to look back and reflect, taking stock of where you’ve been, what you’ve done and how far you’ve come in the time inbetween.

The sting in that particular tale is the realisation of just how relentless the march of time can be. Looking back at the iconic, classic or controversial album releases from days gone by can put things into pretty sharp perspective in that regard.

Or y’know, you could just ignore all that guff and enjoy this playlist of highlights from these 18 albums that are celebrating the anniversary of their release at some point this year. If you can remember any of these coming out first time around, chances are you’ll feel a lot older. But what a collection of records they are!
