Old Nick's Top-30 Of 2019


This is the list of albums I had on heavy rotation during 2019. If an album was very good but way too long or demanding to listen to it more than twice, you won't see it here (e.g. Esoteric). I have limited attention span and favourite albums are called "favourite" because we keep listening to them non-stop. The order below is more or less accurate.

Best EP: Suffering Hour - Dwell
Best Demo: Mortal Incarnation - Lunar Radiant Dawn
Best Video: Belzebubs - Cathedrals Of Mourning
Best Album Art: BUS - Never Decide

Interesting list. Your top 2 is also in my top 5 of 2019.

Number 28 is my favourite of this year and I really liked The Ruins Of Fading Light as well.

Really nice list!

Thanks. You are probably right, I think I've only listened to it once on the fly and remember liking it, so I'll give it another listen with more attention based on your recommendation.

Thanks for pointing it out. I did listen to it once when it came out because Marcel had mentioned it in some thread but I must have not paid enough attention, otherwise it would have made my list. Sometimes there is so much stuff being released that we just miss things. It's never too late though, I have staff-picked it and it's now on the front page so everyone can give it the attention it deserves.

Despite the fact that I infinitely prefer BUS's cover art, it is very clear where they got their inspiration from. Can be a coincidence still.. or maybe not.
