Hey there Tech-fiends, it's that time of the week again. I thought I'd do something special to end the year with and do an extensive 2016 best of feature for Tech-Death Tuesday. Then once 2017 begins, I'll be right back at it with plenty of early exclusive streams and new underground acts to show you all year long. So until next year, have a good one.

I really hate having to rank my favorites, as they are numerous, and I genuinely rarely think of my favorite releases for any year in a ranked way. So the following list of my favorite 2016 tech-death full-lengths (and the secondary list for favorite EPs) will be unranked to save me the stress and fretting over placing them in some highly specific order. Instead, place a little blind trust in me that each one listed is well worth investing time in (though you'll gravitate to some more then others depending on your tastes) if its one you haven't heard so far. I'm going to place all my lesser known favorites first and the ones from established names after, that way you can get a sense of what you might have missed in an easy streamlined way.
