My personal favorite 75 metal albums of the year, this year has been pretty good when comes to heavy metal, especially within black and melodic death metal, also a good year for symphonic metal.

So I Heard You Like Wintersun...

This list aims to be the Wintersun equivalent of LeKiwi's fantastic So I Heard You Like Opeth... list (go and check that one out if you're a fan).

A lot of us around these parts are/were big fans of Wintersun. While Jari may take his sweet time writing, recording, (and let's not forget) producing albums, there are many bands that have a similar sound we can enjoy listening to while we wait for the next Wintersun release, praying that it doesn't disappoint!

1. Æther Realm - Tarot
2. Aephanemer - Prokopton
3. Atavistia - One Within The Sun
4. Blind Stare - Symphony Of Delusions
5. Children Of Bodom - Hatebreeder

2021: Jan-Jun

After clocking well over 700 albums in 2020, I'm hoping 2021 will be a bit busier IRL and thus slightly less comprehensively covered in these lists, but let's see - with all the new strains emerging, who TF knows when we might return to a semblance of normality. Until then, I'll be trying to make sure that nothing noteworthy passes my radar.

1. Vulgaris - Asundre
2. Dvne - Etemen Ænka
3. Heliocentric - Ishmael
4. Decline Of The I - Johannes
5. Dordeduh - Har
