Top 20 Albums Of 2020

Very hard to sort this one. A different year with albums from all sorts of genres. Not the best year but also far from the worst. Mörk Gryning was the pleasant surprise of the year with their best album since "Tusen år har gått..."

Turmion Kätilöt released the catchiest song of all time, "Revi Minut Auki".

1. Anaal Nathrakh - Endarkenment
2. Mörk Gryning - Hinsides Vrede
3. Dark Tranquillity - Moment
4. Haken - Virus
5. Lustre - The Ashes Of Light

TOP 100 METAL ALBUMS OF 2020

2020 has been nothing short of a horrific year. The music industry was quite possibly changed forever due to the pandemic, we saw tours and festivals canceled, and as of now, live shows seem to be a thing of the past.

However, this year ( especially in metal), we saw some big releases, impressive debuts, and the return of several bands that had been on hiatus for decades. Overall for albums, 2020 was rather impressive. Here's my favorite 100 metal albums of 2020...

1. Spectral Lore - Wanderers: Astrology Of The Nine [Collaboration]
2. Cryptic Shift - Visitations From Enceladus
3. Psychotic Waltz - The God-Shaped Void
4. Akhlys - Melinoë
5. Ulcerate - Stare Into Death And Be Still

2020

My favourite albums of 2020.

I've taken a new approach this year - switching to ratings out of 5, rounded to the nearest 0.5. Trying to rate everything to the nearest 0.1 was becoming a chore. Anything rated lower than 2/5 has been excluded.

Also, while my previous lists have been 99% metal, 2020 has seen me exploring music across a much broader range of genres.

1. Loathe - I Let It in and It Took Everything
2. Hum - Inlet
3. Satyr - Locus
4. Deftones - Ohms
5. Phoebe Bridgers - Punisher

1. Ichiko Aoba - "Gift" at Sogetsu Hall
2. Fiona Apple - Fetch the Bolt Cutters
3. Ichiko Aoba - Adan no kaze
4. tricot - 真っ黒 (Makkuro)
