My Mostly Metal Playlist - Top 100 (so Far) of 2021


Thumbs up: +1
Good morrow
This is Prnzo
this list is probably for...
idk, the more adventurous...
jack-of-all-trades listener
lots of apples/oranges here
hopefully this top list helps
at least one MS'er
and if not...
there's always next yr
...unless there's not

update: this list still reflected just releases from earlier in the year - I keep updating my list offline... but I'm never happy with some of the configuration/arrangement (due mostly to indecision or losing track of even a very good release here n there)

...I figured I should just update it to something, whether I'm happy with it or whether it includes all the bands under consideration or not... so here it goes, I guess *siiiiGH*

edit2: currently working on a comment/synopsis of each album!
