Women Of Metal

Thanks to digital media, I have been exposed to a large number of great metal albums from female vocalists, especially over the last 5 years. 2020 saw a number of these super releases, and lead me to make this list to celebrate my favourite women of metal.

1. Royal Thunder - CVI
2. In This Moment - Blood
3. Konvent - Puritan Masochism
4. Julie Christmas - Mariner [Collaboration]
5. L7 - Smell The Magic

The Best Metal Albums* From A to # (A)

This list is meant to be an extensive, but by no means exhaustive, collection of the greatest (modern) metal albums and eps. Running the gamut from avant-garde to trve norweigan black metal. *As someone who is young in age, my tastes tend to revolve around the period of the 80s to the present.* Although certain metal albums from before will certainly be featured, the period of the 60s-70s will be under-represented. I refer you to this excellent list to gain a better appreciation for some of the best metal from that period: https://rateyourmusic.com/list/freis/martin_popoffs_the_top_500_heavy_metal_albums_of_all_time/

1. Aara - En Ergô Einai
2. Aarni - Bathos
3. Aaskereia - Dort, Wo Das Alte Böse Ruht
4. Aastraal - Tuba mirum spargens sonum per sepulcra regionum, coget omnes ante thronum
5. AATHMA - Avesta

Best Of 2019!

Another year, year of the pipe?
New record from new albums, many were old bands I knew before, some I found by my self, some thanks to Radu and Old Nick.
1 to 17 is in some how in order as I think was best ! Rest is alphabetically because those are albums I like are equally good and I have listen all more as 3 times.
223 to 232 are disapoinmets and last one is biggest in whole poser and TrOO metal history.
In middle like I told are decent and heavy , good albums.
What next year will bring? I hope more good music not new album number to brake.
This is trOO metal baby!

1. Grand Magus - Wolf God
2. Idle Hands - Mana
3. Amon Amarth - Berserker
4. Sun Of The Sleepless - Sun Of The Sleepless & Cavernous Gate
5. Running Wild - Crossing The Blades

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.

1. Atlantean Kodex - The Course Of Empire
2. Idle Hands - Mana
3. Diamond Head - The Coffin Train
4. Flotsam And Jetsam - The End Of Chaos
5. Numenorean - Adore
