We invited artists, labels and publicists to tell us which records or artists they’ve personally enjoyed over the last twelve months, Jørgen Munkeby‘s picks below. Shining‘s new album, International Blackjazz Society, is out now via Spinefarm Records.

Dr. Dre – Compton (Interscope)
I used to listen to Dre’s production a lot when I was young, especially with Snoop Dogg’s Doggystyle. Therefore it was amazing to hear another Dre album, with his signature beats and inventive production tricks.”


Muse – Drones (Warner Bros.)
I absolutely loved The Resistance from 2009. I was a bit ambivalent towards The 2nd Law, but Drones I like again.


Bring Me The Horizon – That’s The Spirit (RCA)
The songs Happy Song, Throne, True Friends and Blasphemy forces this album onto this list.


Halsey – Badlands (Astralwerks)
Reason for being on the list: New Americana.


Periphery – Alpha & Omega (Century Media)
Grand project from a grand band. It’s impressive what these guys have built!


Turbonegro – Hot For Nietzsche (Single)
First single off the band’s upcoming album. Haven’t heard the album, but the single is great and very entertaining!


Haunted Shores – Viscera
I’ve been lucky enough to play on this one. An energetic, aggressive and fresh take on a modern Norwegian folk genre with an American twist.


Marilyn Manson – The Pale Emperor (Hell, etc. / Cooking Vinyl)
Refreshing change of pace for the 90’s shock rocker. The slower and swampy swagger suits Manson.


Danko Jones – Fire Music (Bad Taste Records)
Sometimes I want to hear rock, rock and rock. That’s when Danko comes in. The cowbell groove on Do You Wanna Rock is just perfect!


Susanne Sundfør: Ten Love Songs (Warner Music Norway)
Check out this album.
