Radu's Batch Of Worthwhile 2020 Stuff








About time I started doing year progress lists, and about time I stopped calling myself a noob. Let's see how far into the year I get before I get too lazy to update this. Probably farther than Mercurial.

Will include some non-metal stuff and some stuff that isn't on Bandcamp, so don't limit yourself to the cool Bandcamp embeds from above.

I wish I had the time to review every single album here. Instead I'll probably review some shitty Power metal to fill my self-imposed quotas. At least some of these I will get to review, or someone else will. Keep an eye on that.

Edit: Also fuck Bandcamp for not letting me pick to have the embeds start at the first track, and to have the album's cover art instead of the featured single's.

Created by: RaduP | 11.01.2020



1. Mammock - Itch
1st Jan ~ Noise Rock ~ Greece ~ Independent ~ Jumping between heavy rock bravado and bassy noisy math rock with ease, this was a really fun way to start the year.
2. Victory Over The Sun - A Tessitura Of Transfiguration
3rd Jan ~ Avant Black Metal ~ Oregon, USA ~ Independent ~ One (wo)man band with a very messy take on black metal, but it's a beautiful and cathartic mess.
3. Floral Tattoo - You Can Never Have A Long Enough Head Start
3rd Jan ~ Emo / Shoegaze ~ Washington, USA ~ Independent ~ How Loveless would sound like if it was made by a queer midwest emo band whose favorite band was Blink-182 once.
4. Vengeful Spectre - Vengeful Spectre
7th Jan ~ Black / Folk Metal ~ China ~ Pest ~ Chinese black metal where the folk part are clearly Chinese, and hopefully not another case of Ghost Bath.
5. Alexandra Savior - The Archer
7th Jan ~ Psychedelic / Indie Pop ~ Oregon, USA ~ 30th Century ~ A bit too close to Lana Del Rey, but the hazy dreamlike quality and the jazz feeling combined with the indie rock on this album make for a very fun listen.
6. Dragged Into Sunlight - Terminal Aggressor II
10th Jan ~ Atmo / Blackened Sludge ~ UK ~ Prosthetic ~ Apparently released by the label without the band's consent, so make sure not to pay one dime for it, but the one 28-minutes-long track absolutely leveled me.
7. Kassad - London Orbital
10th Jan ~ Post-Black Metal ~ UK ~ Hypnotic Dirge ~ Not a better fitting label name for this Kassad release, and also the London reference in the title makes me feel like this is atmo black metal's answer to Burial's Untrue.
8. Kawir - Adrasteia
10th Jan ~ Black Metal ~ Greece ~ Iron Bonehead ~ Part folky part traditional black metal take on Greek mythology tales of the vengeance of women.
9. Lotus Thief - Oresteia
10th Jan ~ Post ~ New York, USA ~ Prophecy ~ A less violent take that the previous entry on Greek tragedy, lush, suave and very focused on the balance between beautiful atmospheres and heaviness, with obvious emphasis on the former.
10. Poppy - I Disagree
10th Jan ~ Electropop / Alt Metal ~ California, USA ~ Sumerian ~ I am so happy we live in a world where Poppy released a pop metal mashup on Sumerian Records and it fucking slaps.
11. Vvilderness - Dark Waters
10th Jan ~ Post-Black Metal ~ Hungary ~ Unsigned ~ Another one of those post-bm one-man bands, black metal sections have some actual meat to them and the folk in it makes the atmosphere even more endearing.
12. Staurophagia - Sidereal Sacraments
10th Jan ~ Ambient Black Metal / Dark Ambient ~ Italy ~ Independent ~ More of a dark ambient album than a black metal one, there are still bits and pieces of raw black metal thrown in, but there are so drowned out by the ambiance of lost space.
13. Aiming For Enrike - Music For Working Out
10th Jan ~ Math Rock / Dance Punk ~ Norway ~ Pecula Records ~ Admittedly I haven't tried to work out on this record just yet, but the jammy dance-able and immensely groovy energy on this one doesn't make it hard to imagine that it would be fitting.
14. Yoth Iria - Under His Sway
13th Jan ~ Black Metal ~ Greece ~ The core of this band is two ex-Rotting Christ members, who were also part of some big names like Varathron, Necromantia and Thou Art Lord, and it's not very good news for Rotting Christ that this 3 songs EP is more exciting than anything they did last decade.
15. Body Void - Body Void​ / ​Keeper [Split]
15th Jan ~ Sludge ~ California, USA ~ Roman Numeral Records ~ I'm not gonna say no to more punishing claustrophobic sludge from Body Void, and this also proves it's high time we got a Keeper full length.
16. Adrian Tăbăcaru - Lucifer - A Rock Opera
15th Jan ~ Prog Metal Opera ~ Romania ~ Independent ~ Based on the epic poem by Mihai Eminescu, this metal opera along with its video by Costin Chioreanu do it enough justice, but the music and the video work the best together.
17. Sea - Impermanence
15th Jan ~ Post-Metal ~ Massachusetts, USA ~ Independent ~ Post-Metal that leans a lot into doom and sludge, but with a great sense of atmosphere, great dual vocals and a very triumphant feel.
18. Ether Coven - Everything Is Temporary Except Suffering
17th Jan ~ Post/Sludge Metal ~ Florida, USA ~ Century Media Records ~ Sludge with both a very depressive post edge to it as well as loads of metalcore, their first on a big label and since changing their name, and it seems to have worked well for them. Get this thing on Bandcamp for fuck's sake.
19. Garganjua - Toward The Sun
17th Jan ~ Doom Metal ~ UK ~ Holy Roar Records ~ Kinda stoner, kinda post, kinda prog, mostly doom, very expansive and absolutely gorgeous.
20. Grin - Translucent Blades
17th Jan ~ Sludge Metal ~ Germany ~ Crazysane Records ~ When I say that this sludge album is bassy I fucking mean it, plus the clean vocals are really cool and give the songwriting a lot more dynamism, though it wasn't lacking without it.
21. L'Homme Absurde - Belong
17th Jan ~ Post-Black Metal ~ Russia ~ Independent ~ Another great example of a Russian band blending black metal, post-rock and hardcore to great effect, some of the most beautiful black metal of this year so far.
22. Horned Almighty - To Fathom The Master's Grand Design
17th Jan ~ Black Metal ~ Denmark ~ Scarlet Records ~ Didn't expect to like such a traditional black metal that much, but they take some kinda punky black/death sound and play it so damn well.
23. Algiers - There Is No Year
17th Jan ~ Post-Punk / Soul ~ UK ~ Matador ~ The most moody and restrained Algiers album, missed some of the energy of the previous records, but makes up for it in the brooding synthy mood it offers.
24. Catalepsia - Inheritance
17th Jan ~ Gothic Doom ~ Latvia ~ Cataleptic Undoings ~ Why can't all gothic doom be banging and crushing like this?
25. Die Like Gentlemen - Stories
18th Jan ~ Acoustic ~ Oregon, USA ~ Independent ~ An acoustic take on Die Like Gentleman's usual progressive sludge/doom sound, with a fuller sound than just some acoustic guitars, and some damn great thunderous vocals.
26. Sivyj Yar - Горе
24th Jan ~ Pagan Black Metal ~ Russia ~ Avantgarde Music ~ Black metal with clear eastern European folk influence that doesn't overly use acoustic guitars, and also has the best production value of any Sivyj Yar album I heard.
27. Jordablod - The Cabinet Of Numinous Song
24th Jan ~ Black Metal ~ Sweden ~ Iron Bonehead ~ A black metal record that actually knows how to use some intricate guitar work that almost borders on surf rock on times.
28. Konvent - Puritan Masochism
24th Jan ~ Death/Doom Metal ~ Denmark ~ Napalm ~ Lady death doom that both creates a dark monolithic atmosphere and also absolutely crushes.
29. Marko Hietala - Pyre Of The Black Heart
24th ~ Folk ~ Finland ~ Nuclear Blast ~ I've always had a soft spot for Marco's singing in Nightwish, especially with the folkier direction of the last albums, surprised it took so long for him to release a solo album.
30. Crowhurst - Crowhurst And Gavin Bryars Present: Incoherent American Narrative [Collaboration]
24th Jan ~ Ambient ~ Prophecy ~ I suppose I should be schooled for not having known who Gavin Bryars is before this, but considering his massive output and apparent prestige, it's great to see Crowhurst and him working together to make one of the most meditative and awe-inspiring ambient albums out there.
31. Mortiis - Spirit Of Rebellion
24th Jan ~ Dungeon Synth ~ Norway ~ Dead Seed ~ I'm not that familiar with Mortiis' output, but it seems like a return to their dungeon synth sound, a sound I honestly haven't explored nearly enough so it still sounds like old school video game music to me and I dig it.
32. Thy Catafalque - Naiv
24th Jan ~ Avant-Garde Metal ~ Hungary ~ Season Of Mist ~ Amazing how consistently great Thy Catafalque are, even if neither Naiv nor Geometria were as good as Meta or Regenteg, but Naiv integrates Geometria's influences and sounds much better than it.
33. Death. Void. Terror. - To The Great Monolith II
24th Jan ~ Ambient Black Metal ~ Switzerland ~ Repose ~ One of those black metal records that feel claustrophobically dense, like being dragged through a very dense void, as contradictory as that sounds.
34. Bohren & Der Club Of Gore - Patchouli Blue
24th Jan ~ Dark Jazz ~ Germany ~ Ipecac ~ Dark, moody and jazzy as one remembers Bohren, but suprisingly much more consistent than the last few records, but it still feels too much like background music, as immersive as it is.
35. Jeff Parker - Suite For Max Brown
24th Jan ~ Jazz Fusion ~ California, USA ~ International Anthem ~ Some jazz from someone of post-rock innovators Tortoise fame, as a tribute for his mother, where he perfectly blends his identities as a guitarist, as an innovator and as a DJ.
36. Black Flux - Black Stream
26th Jan ~ Black Metal ~ Russia ~ Bloodred ~ Black metal that is somewhat atmospheric but doesn't forget about having some mean fucking riffs.
37. NGHTCRWLR - HiSeq_Let The Children Scream
29th Jan ~ Industrial ~ New York, USA ~ Lobster ~ Some bludgeoning industrial and techno beats from Kris Esfandiari of King Woman and Miserable fame, with plenty of detours into either noise or trap.
38. Tricot - Makkuro
29th Jan ~ Math Pop ~ Japan ~ Cutting Edge ~ Part power pop, part twingly math rock, 3/4 female, fully fun.
39. Zalmoxis - A Nocturnal Emanation
31st Jan ~ Black Metal ~ Germany ~ Signal Rex ~ A great black metal EP about wet dreams, where all of the instruments really fall into place to create great atmosphere but they're still overshadowed by the great vocals.
40. Yuri Gagarin - The Outskirts Of Reality
31st Jan ~ Space Rock ~ Sweden ~ Kommun 2 ~ Take a stride through cosmic haze and otherworldly lifeforms. Much more dynamic than their previous albums but just as juicy.
41. Leeched - To Dull The Blades Of Your Abuse
31st Jan ~ Metalcore ~ UK ~ Prosthetic ~ As abrassive as I've ever heard metalcore go, plenty of pace changes and most importantly plenty of heart.
42. Lorna Shore - Immortal
31st Jan ~ Metalcore ~ New Jersey, USA ~ Century Media ~ You know a metalcore band is gonna hit big when their cover art looks more like an atmospheric black metal album than a metalcore one.
43. Obsidian Tongue - Volume III
31st Jan ~ Atmospheric Black Metal ~ Bilderun ~ It takes a duo of Thrawsunblat and Falls Of Rauros members to create a proper atmospheric black metal album in 2020.
44. Apep - The Invocation Of The Deathless One
31st Jan ~ Death Metal ~ Germany ~ Independent ~ Move over, Nile! We have a new Egyptian mythos worship death metal band in town, as much as I wish they had the suffocating atmosphere of earlier Nile, they're still ahead of last decade Nile.
45. Deathwhite - Grave Image
31st Jan ~ Melodic Doom / Gothic Metal ~ Pennsylvania, USA ~ Season Of Mist ~ For some newer music of a kind that seemed all the rage a decade ago, Deathwhite seem to hit that gloomy foreboding feeling just right to not feel too derivative.
46. Destroyer - Have We Met
31st Jan ~ Synthpop / Art Pop ~ Canada ~ Merge ~ Rarely does a synthpop record not only not sound like a retro rehash, but actually have an artsy sense of cool and poetry.
47. Dan Deacon - Mystic Familiar
31st Jan ~ Neo-Psychedelia / Indietronica ~ New York, USA ~ Domino ~ A synthy voyage through euphoric lands, consistently dreamlike and surprisingly emotionally resonant.
48. Bütcher - 666 Goats Carry My Chariot
31st Jan ~ Blackened Speed Metal ~ Belgium ~ Osmose ~ Fucking evil and darkness and Satan and 666 and most importantly riffs!
49. Panopticon - Panopticon / Nechochwen [Split]
31st Jan ~ Folk Black Metal ~ Minnesota, USA / West Virginia, USA ~ Bilderune Recordings ~ One of the two split records released by Panopticon the same day, this is the black metal one, and while Nechochwen almost convinced me that they might hold a candle to Panopticon, the latter's track and the story behind me changed my mind.
50. Ygg - The Last Scald
5th Feb ~ Atmospheric Black Metal ~ Ukraine ~ Ashen Dominion ~ A quite unexpected comeback, Ygg bring back atmospheric black metal as blood chilling as you usually remember Ukrainian atmospheric black metal being.
51. Stoned God - Incorporeal
6th Feb ~ Prog Death Metal ~ Germany ~ Independent ~ Sometimes bordering on tech death but never going into wanky territory, Incorporeal sounds a bit like Gojira but not that much to feel not genuine.
52. Lugubrum - Plage Chômage
7th Feb ~ Avantgarde ~ Belgium ~ Those Opposed Records ~ Self described farmer metal band, Lugubrum bring their experimental black metal sound to new dimension by almost completely dropping the metal, leaving behind bass grooves, eerie melodies and something that sounds like cursed polka.
53. The Spirit - Cosmic Terror
7th Feb ~ Black / Death Metal ~ Germany ~ Art Of Propaganda ~ As much as this looks like a tech death album, it's some blackened death that feels cold, angry and maybe just a bit of that angst that fits the album title.
54. Envy - The Fallen Crimson
7th Feb ~ Screamo / Post-Rock ~ Japan ~ Pelagic ~ More of their blend of vitriolic screamo, cathartic spoken word and ethereal post-rock, sometimes finding itself at odds with itself, but always feeling overwhelming in what it does.
55. Sylosis - Cycle Of Suffering
7th Feb ~ Melodeath / Tech Thrash Metal ~ UK ~ Nuclear Blast ~ Riffs upon riffs upon riffs. Not as good as what came before it, but it's good to have them back regardless.
56. Sepultura - Quadra
7th Feb ~ Groove Thrash / Alternative ~ Brazil ~ Nuclear Blast ~ When a new era Sepultura album can turn around a lot of their nay-sayers, you know they're doing something right, in this case is approaching four different sounds in one album.
57. Sons Of A Wanted Man - Kenoma
7th Feb ~ Post Black Metal ~ Belgium ~ Les Acteurs de L'Ombre ~ Some post-black metal that makes the most of all of its components, whether post-metal, black metal, post-rock, shoegaze or hardcore, it all feels like it packs a punch here.
58. Loathe - I Let It In And It Took Everything
7th Feb ~ Alternative Metalcore ~ UK ~ SharpTone ~ A metalcore record that takes the dream metal that Deftones did and turns it to 11.
59. Against All Logic - 2017 - 2019
7th Feb ~ Tech House ~ New York, USA ~ Other People ~ A lot more consistent than the previous album by Nicholas Jaar's side-project Against All Logic, but also a lot rawer with a and more industrial edge.
60. HMLTD - West Of Eden
7th Feb ~ Glam Punk ~ England, UK ~ Lucky Number ~ Plenty of new wave / glam rock / post-punk sounds of old that finally feel actually remodeled for the current era, one of the most insanely catchy and electrifying albums of the year.
61. Cénotaphe - Monte Verità
12th Feb ~ Black Metal ~ France ~ Ossuaire Records / Nuclear War Now ~ The official full-length debut of these French gentlemen (even if Empyrée was like over 30 minutes), it shows how black metal can be melodic without losing any of its rawness.
62. Lifetaker - Night Intruder
14th Feb ~ Sludgecore ~ Germany ~ Black Omega ~ Lifetaker mix everything extreme about metal and punk to, as the band name implies, take your life.
63. Godthrymm - Reflections
14th Feb ~ Doom ~ UK ~ Profound Lore ~ Olden slow and cold doom from ex-My Dying Bride and ex-Solstice members that surprisingly sounds more like early Paradise Lost than anything My Dying Bride.
64. Frayle - 1692
14th Feb ~ Occult Doom ~ Ohio, USA ~ Aqualamb ~ Another one of those witchcraft doom records, this time with a more atmospheric and post sounding vibe than a psychedelic one, so in that sense it's a lot more original than I expected.
65. Angellore - Rien Ne Devait Mourir
14th Feb ~ Doom ~ France ~ Finisterian Dead End / The Vinyl Division ~ Doom that is leaning towards the gothic spectrum, has three vocalists, is french, and perfectly threads the heavy but not crushing waters.
66. Turia - Degen Van Licht
14th Feb ~ Atmo Black ~ Netherlands ~ Eisenwald ~ Dutch black that heavily relies on atmosphere, great performances from all three members, and with the feel of dying and ascended on a snowy mountain.
67. Psychotic Waltz - The God-Shaped Void
14th Feb ~ Prog ~ California, USA ~ InsideOut ~ The biggest prog comeback of the year (so far) and likely the best comeback of the year period, Psychotic Waltz brings an olden type of prog metal, less interested in flashy instrumentals or genre fusions.
68. Kvelertak - Splid
14th Feb ~ Blackened Punk ~ Norway ~ Rise ~ With a new vocalist at the helm, Kvelertak are once again cranking everything up with some pummeling energy full of adrenaline.
69. Blaze Of Perdition - The Harrowing Of Hearts
14th Feb ~ Black Metal ~ Poland ~ Metal Blade ~ A polish black metal record that has a Fields Of Nephilim cover, how much more do you need to know?
70. Dola - Dola
17th Feb ~ Blackened Doom Metal ~ Poland ~ Independent ~ Some polish blackened doom that ventures into avant and ambient and drone territories all the while never forgetting to be memorable.
71. Cult Of Fire - Moksha
20th Feb ~ Black Metal ~ Czechia ~ Beyond Eyes ~ Will need further listens to really tell apart Moksha and Nirvana, as both of them are roughly half an hour, and they even flow very well together so they could've easily been packaged together.
72. Cult Of Fire - Nirvana
20th Feb ~ Black Metal ~ Czechia ~ Beyond Eyes ~ But both of them continue Cult Of Fire's black metal descent into Indian mysticism and esotericism with such elegance and awe.
73. Sightless Pit - Grave Of A Dog
21st Feb ~ Death Industrial ~ Rhode Island, USA ~ Thrill Jokey ~ A collab between members of The Body, Full Of Hell and Lingua Ignota that turns more towards the noisy electronic industrial sounds rather than the sludgy grindy ones.
74. On Thorns I Lay - Threnos
21st Feb ~ Gothic Doom Metal ~ Greece ~ Lifeforce ~ Whenever I think to myself that older bands have released their best stuff in their heyday and nothing they do now is really that worthwhile, I remind myself that On Thorns I Lay released Threnos.
75. Wrekmeister Harmonies - We Love To Look At The Carnage
21st Feb ~ Drone ~ Illinois, USA ~ Thrill Jokey ~ Droney dark folky post stuff that slowly builds and that reminds me that I should probably watch Béla Tarr's Werckmeister Harmóniák.
76. Grimes - Miss Anthropocene
21st Feb ~ Art Pop ~ Canada ~ 4AD ~ Campy fun and fairly diverse electro-fun conceptualized around an anthropomorphic climate change.
77. King Krule - Man Alive!
21st Feb ~ Art Rock ~ UK ~ Matador ~ An anguished mix of jazz, rock, blues, soul and dubstep that oozes of the late night.
78. Internal Rot - Grieving Birth
28th Feb ~ Grindcore ~ Australia ~ Iron Lung ~ Grindcore that respects the lo-fi raw scene that it springs from, absolutely punkish and disgusting.
79. Ars Veneficium - Usurpation Of The Seven
28th Feb ~ Black Metal ~ Belgium ~ Immortal Frost ~ Again nothing too mindblowing or forward-thinking about this, but does enough right with its riff-focused approach that it's memorable.
80. Today Is The Day - No Good To Anyone
28th Feb ~ Noise Rock ~ Tennessee, USA ~ The End ~ Not much new for Today Is The Day, but once again they drag you through hell and back with their noisy, sludgy oppressive sounds.
81. Drown - Subaqueous
28th Feb ~ Funeral Doom Metal ~ Oregon, USA ~ Lupus Lounge ~ Having changed their name from Slow (to stop confusion with the Belgian funeral doom band of the same name), the Tchornobog guy delivers some more suffocating atmospheric doom that really makes you feel like you're drowning.
82. Fluisteraars - Bloem
28th Feb ~ Black Metal ~ Netherlands ~ Eisenwald ~ Crazy how some of the best black metal today comes from the Netherlands.
83. Tombs - Monarchy Of Shadows
28th Feb ~ Black Sludge Metal ~ New York, USA ~ Season Of Mist ~ Not sure why this counts as an EP, but Tombs put some menacing black sludge, this time with some more death, probably as leftover from the new lineup changes within the band.
84. Intronaut - Fluid Existential Inversions
28th Feb ~ Prog Post Metal ~ California, USA ~ Metal Blade ~ Wow, Intronaut really are one of the most consistently great bands out there, not only no dud albums in their discog, but no dud moments in their albums either.
85. Toundra - Das Cabinet Des Dr. Caligari
28th Feb ~ Post Rock ~ Spain ~ InsideOut ~ Released to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the German expressionist of the same name, and to also score it, works marvelously alongside it.
86. Dark Fortress - Spectres From The Old World
28th Feb ~ Melodic Black Metal ~ Germany ~ Century Media ~ Great to see Dark Fortress get the recognition they deserve, even though I don't really think it's AOTY material, but they've clearly put their experience to good use.
87. Regarde Les Hommes Tomber - Ascension
28th Feb ~ Black Sludge ~ France ~ Season Of MIst ~ Building upon their already established sound, but maturing and improving it in every way, this is probably the most crushing albums out there.
88. Lurker Of Chalice - Tellurian Slaked Furnace
1st March ~ Blackened Ambient ~ California, USA ~ Nuclear War Now ~ A compilation of mostly unheard tracks from the older days of the project, still feels like a compilation but flows better than most, and perfectly exemplifies the band's ambient side.
89. Clouds - Durere
1st March ~ Funeral Doom Metal ~ Romania ~ The Vinyl Division ~ Some more sad doom from Daniel Neagoe, this time sadly with no vocal guests, which makes it more sad, which I guess is a good thing.
90. Amiensus - Ami/AV Split [Split]
26th June

This is generally stuff I found worthwhile from the year. Some of it might be taken off the list, some more might get added, as I'm processing every new big release day. Obviously you might think some of the stuff here is not worth your time, but I can't model my list for everybody's taste.

Knowing you, I'd say that out of the ones so far you'll like Victory Over The Sun and that think I sent you in a PM but you didn't reply.

When I think of it, I am a bit tired of my own taste and how it selects what I should liten to, its quite unsurprising. I will try to listen to everything you add here.

Victory Over The Sun sounds decent, stays a bit too safe though.
