Plus! We bring you the 50 essential albums of the year! Pick up the issue to find out who made it to Number One!

The 2017 Rock Review is here!

A lot can happen in 12 months. This year has given us joy, sadness, triumphs and odd stuff. Join us as we examine the events and the music of 2017. And we reveal Kerrang!’s Top 50 Albums Of The Year!

The issue looks like this:

Review Of The Year Cover

We dissect every month of 2017 to bring you the highs, lows and everything in-between – featuring Avenged Sevenfold and Paramore, right through to Marilyn Manson and Asking Alexandria. After that, we count down the 50 best records that arrived over the past 12 months, and chat to our much-deserved Number 1 band. And no, we’re not going to tell you who wins here. Soz. 

Elsewhere in the issue, we chat to Thursday’s Geoff Rickly about their return to the UK in the latest Slam Dunk announcement, and there’s a bunch of early Christmas treats in the form of massive shows from PVRIS, Good Charlotte and Stone Sour

And finally, it’s the first part of our Shots Of 2017 poster special! Featuring Enter ShikariFrank Iero, Guns N’ Roses, Mastodon, Blood Youth, Milk Teeth and Employed To Serve

Get the new issue in the shops on Wednesday, December 13, or alternatively, order it online and get it shipped anywhere in the world through Newsstand.
