Best Of 2010-2020 By Mz


The best of 2010-2019. At the end it tuned out to be less diverse than what I thought it would be in terms of musical genres, with mostly black and death metal record filling the spots.
Recommendations more than welcomed.

It is very clear that 2010's was a great decade for death metal, as opposed to a 2000's.

Working on my top 100 right now, but this is a really good list, lots of stuff I enjoyed in here. I'm surprised 777 - Cosmosophy was in here, as I liked that album but thought it was a step down from BAN's previous works.

Thanks a lot. I'm pretty sure I've missed some albums so I'm definitely looking forwards to see your list, too.
Cosmosphy was something I really enjoyed. I think it was the best of the triology. The production really worked well for that album, as opposed to the other two on the triology. In addition, it sounded that classic prog rock bands from 70s would make if they wanted to do an avant-garde industrial album, which I appreciated

I'm gonna have it up in a minute, but it's going to be edited a million times after that. I basically wrote down a bunch of albums and threw them into order, but the order is not final.
That's an interesting point about the whole 70s prog thing. Like I said, I definitely liked the album, just not as much as their other works. I know the production wasn't great on the first two of the trilogy, but The Desanctification was my favorite, I would say Cosmosphy is my second favorite actually, and Sect(s) being the worst one.

OH yeah. I keep forgetting about that album. Basically the heaviest album of the last decade.

For it it almost never happens to go back to those two albums, but Cosmosophy is something I would revisit at least for a couple of times every now and then.

Gave another update to include some albums I have forgotten about before. It has been a struggle to limit the number of albums to 100 here given the number of great records released in the last decade.
Recommendations still welcomed.
