1. Zmey Gorynich ‘Mother Russia’
With 34 out of 50 points Zmey Gorynich managed to claim the title ‘Best Debut-album’ this year. Voted ‘best’ by two members and second by one, these Russians are the obvious winners this year.
“The sound quality is there too with punch in the guts drums, crunchy bass and guitar and plenty of attention paid to the folk instruments and vocals.

For those that want to surf on the waves of epicness, grab your board and jump onto the next one cresting in “Mother Russia” and come along for the ride……I would say debut full length album of the year contender for sure.”
