Top Albums of 2020

Here are my favourite albums of 2020.
1Psychotic Waltz
The God-Shaped Void


This is a stellar progressive release that makes their old sound more accessible for a modern audience.
2Sweven (SWE)
The Eternal Resonance


We have a progressive death metal album here with a Cynic vibe that pushes boundaries.
3Thematic
Skyrunner


This is a melodic view of metal that has a nice clean vocal performance and a lot of nuances.
4Xenobiotic
Mordrake


This album blisters with a metalcore aspect that is mixed with death metal
5Novena
Eleventh Hour


This is progressive metal with Haken's vocalist that surpasses that band's recent material in a unique manner.
6Psychonaut
Unfold the God Man


Here we have an album that further pushes the post-metal style in different directions
7Dawn of Solace
Waves


This is an excellent melodic death metal album that shines with melody and clean vocals.
8Sylosis
Cycle of Suffering


Sylosis continue their legacy with more of the groove thrash that made them so notable in the past.
9Intronaut
Fluid Existential Inversions


This album progresses the band into new territory and ends up being a very compelling listen.
10Deathwhite
Grave Image


This is a death/doom platter that is moving and emotional.
11Oceans of Slumber
Oceans of Slumber


We have a female fronted platter that perfects the band's moody formula.

Endless Twilight of Codependent Love


The band gets a bit more subtle, but still delivers atmospheric delight.
13 Cryptex
Once Upon A Time


Brilliant progressive rock here that echoes The Mars Volta.
14Ulcerate
Stare Into Death and Be Still


This heavy death metal bands refines their style to a great degree on this excellent progressive release.
15Kvelertak
Splid


This is a fun rock oriented metal album that is the second best offering from the band.
16Lotus Thief
Oresteia


A whimsical female fronted music release is to be found here.
17Delain
Apocalypse & Chill


This album sees the female-fronted musical act get even more accessible and score a winner.
18Pain of Salvation
Panther


This band adds new electronic elements and expands their progressive sound in interesting new directions.
19The Ocean
Phanerozoic II: Mesozoic | Cenozoic


This post-metal heavyweight adds some subtle new elements to their music that recall Tool and crafts another huge success.
20Wobbler
Dwellers of the Deep


This progressive rock album has Yes running in its blood and is interesting to the max.
