DutchMetalManiac End Of Year Lists 2017

Hey DutchMetalManiac readers,

First of all, thanks for reading our articles and I hope you will also enjoy our upcoming articles! 🙂

At this moment I also want to thank DutchMetalManiac’s writers Glenn, Henric, Martijn, Julia, Alessandro and Joost as well as our former writers.

Of course, I also want to thank all the bands, labels, promoters, venues, because without them DutchMetalManiac couldn’t exist.

Personally, I also want to thank the love of my life for supporting me and DutchMetalManiac.

Below you can find our end of the year lists 2017, they are very diverse. There are only three bands that are mentioned twice.

We’ll have a short break from now on and we will be back on January 2nd for a very metal 2018! \m/

So, enjoy our end of the year lists and hopefully we’ll see you back in 2018.

Merry Xmas and a happy new year full of metal to you!
