At first I thought Dark Fortress wouldn't be such a likely candidate for our highest rated album of 2020, a position in which it has since been dethroned. But the more I think about it, it kinda makes sense.

I loved it on first listen.
Each consecutive listen it gets better.

Meloblack AotY for me so far


ended up just getting nicked by Necrophobic for me

I've been spinning this again recently and for me it's difficult to say which I prefer. Spectres From The Old World probably has slightly too much ambition for its own good.

Dawn of the Damned is much more snappy and to the point. Much more accessible but sometimes too obvious.

Both are damn fine albums though and I've taken great pleasure in having both on vinyl.

this is a solid way to describe them comparatively. you're right, both are top notch efforts!
