2020: The Decent Bits

Sup guys how's everybody doing besides too ADD to read my long-ass list title lmao
1Ulcerate
Stare Into Death and Be Still


Ceremonial placement, never have my high expectations for an album been met so forcefully.
2SUMAC
May You Be Held


It's bizarre and almost ramshackle, but the more I listened to this to see if I enjoyed it the more I realized that's exactly what I was doing.
3Palm Reader
Sleepless


Whoa where did this come from

damn
4Couch Slut
Take A Chance On Rock 'n' Roll


almost broke my cigarette but I didn't and that's pretty crust punk
5Emma Ruth Rundle and Thou
May Our Chambers Be Full


Always a good time when an amazing collab on the surface turns out amazing in substance
6Denzel Curry and Kenny Beats
Unlocked


This bumps so goddamn hard, I want a full record or mixtape from Denzel in 2021 so badly
7Fiona Apple
Fetch The Bolt Cutters


We all know this is amazing, it just is. The glory fades slightly after a few listens though.
8Leeched
To Dull the Blades of Your Abuse


Probably one of my most-played albums all year because it is damn-near perfect.

good point in this list for a reminder everything so far is an easy 4.5 and order is mostly meaningless
9Waxahatchee
Saint Cloud


Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
10Mamaleek
Come and See


I realized that the description for #2 could also work for this, ha. Kinda how it goes with all Mamaleek records for me.
11Prurient
Casablanca Flamethrower


Oh yes, his best since FNF by far. Perfect blend of his harsher power electronics and the militant drones he does with Vatican Shadow.
12Question
Reflections of the Void


Still all of these are mostly 4.5s...it was a good year for music if not much else. #2 death metal for the year behind Ulcerate.
13Thy Catafalque
Naiv


Reppin' those January releases boiii. For real I saved a slot for this ever since I first heard it, so here it is.
14Oranssi Pazuzu
Mestarin Kynsi


Wide selection this year of black metal being wrung out for all it's worth.
15Boris
NO


I'm a huge Boris fanboy but this is seriously great, they're on a damn roll recently
16Afterbirth
Four Dimensional Flesh


Technical slam death? Ok. REALLY GOOD tech slam death??

YES.
17Slift
Ummon


Jammy, spacey, stonery, rocky, fuzzy, post-ish...

Fuck, it's a big ol' rok album y'all
18Svalbard
When I Die, Will I Get Better?


How I was sold a skramzcore album with song titles like "Click Bait" I don't know

But this is genuinely pretty damn great
19Napalm Death
Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism
20Deftones
Ohms


This and Napalm Death are both like 3.8s and y'all need to chill
