It's the most wonderful time of year! The end of the year, in which we launch a million anonymous online arguments over our Top 40 Albums of 2015.
The rejuvenated Lamb of God earn their second cover story, detailing their long comeback from frontman Randy Blythe's imprisonment in the Czech Republic. You'll also enjoy a Hall of Fame on Canadian thrashers Sacrifice, a Killing Joke Q&A and a Flexi Series special: Misery Index celebrating five years of the series by tackling Sepultura's "Primitive Future."
But we know you're champing at the bit to get to that Top 40. Could number one be Baroness, High on Fire, Paradise Lost... or a first-timer? Pick up the January issue now to find out.
