We've already presented the 30 Best Metal Albums of 2018 and the 30 Best Hard Rock Albums of 2018 and now it's time to show some love for the newbies only!

The irony here is that some of the best debut records were authored by veteran musicians who have found success with either their main band or previous endeavors. Regardless of their age, the music is fresh, the sounds are different and, yes, there's still some completely new acts in here.

We even cheated a bit and included two EPs, but, hey, you wanted the best, you got the best... the 10 Best Hard Rock + Metal Debut Albums of 2018! Check 'em out below.
