6) THRESHOLD – Legends Of The Shires (Nuclear Blast)

UK progressive metal masters Threshold never cease to write interesting, moving transitions and quality songs to fill-up your headspace. Legends Of The Shires is no different as the Brits bring a two disc special with their 11th album and incredibly haven’t lost a step. With Legends Of The Shires, former singer Glynn Morgan returned to the fold to replace Damian Wilson. A blast from the past indeed but this is no nostalgia trip; Legends Of The Shires lives up to its mythical name. 

BW scribe Rich Catino gave the album a perfect score in his review saying, “It’s always a pleasurable experience listening to a Threshold album. A 10/10 is an easy call when you have flawless craftsmanship and artistic direction because of a loose formula. Sure to make my end of year list in the Top 10.”
