Kingdok's 2020

what a shit year, good f#@kin' riddance. Didn't listen to a huge variety of albums, but still heard some nice stuff.
1Enter Shikari
Nothing Is True and Everything Is Possible


Got massively back into these guys during the early pandemic, perfectly coinciding with this. Became my sound of lockdown, feels like it redefines the band and does it really well.

Marionettes (I & II)
2Celebrity Sex Scandal
The Fundamental


A real surprise, massively ups the ante from their first two albums. Fantastically weird shit with horns.

A Jaundiced Eye
3Raging Speedhorn
Hard To Kill


More streamlined and straight forward than Lost Ritual, but their sound has developed superbly well with a new co-vocalist. Ultimately it's their most fun album since the near-classic We Will Be Dead Tomorrow

Doom Machine
4Tallah
Matriphagy


Another slow burner, this one is still growing on me

L.E.D.
5Dark Tranquillity
Moment


Took a few listens before it started to take a hold, but the same can be said of all DT albums. Still love keyboard driven melodeath.

Ego Deception
6Deftones
Ohms


Loved this initially, but it faded over time with the hooks not really sinking in so much.

Urantia
7Spanish Love Songs
Brave Faces Everyone


Not as impactful musically as Schmaltz, but the lyrics are destructive.

Routine Pain
8The Avalanches
We Will Always Love You


Simple, beautiful, melancholic.

Feels like an hour long track.
9Pup
This Place Sucks Ass


A nice treat when it came out, but kinda feels a bit like a collection of (pretty decent) B-sides.

Anaphylaxis
10Code Orange
Underneath


Seems a fairly divisive album. I like what it does, but it can feel a little samey.

Swallowing the Rabbit Whole
