2020 Discoveries

Listened to a lot of music in 2020. Discovered (and rediscovered in some cases) many bands/albums. Discoveries follow in no particular order.
1Socionic
Identity


Great alt metal EP - and even greater visuals in the booklet.
2Deadly Circus Fire
The King And The Bishop


Heavy, sadistic Tool(ish) band
3Shaolin Death Squad
Five Deadly Venoms


Mr. Bungle worship, but awesome!
4Vexes
Ancient Geometry


May sound like Deftones, but bad ass anyways
5Silverchair
Diorama


Could not appreciate this back in the day. But do now, along with David Botrill’s production
6David Reilly
How Humans Rx


GLU is a forgotten industrial metal gem from the mid 1990’s.
7Galactic Cowboys
Machine Fish


This album slays hard! All the way through.
8The Night Flight Orchestra
Sometimes The World Ain't Enough


Bjorn Strid may be the most versatile Singer out there.
9Skunk Anansie
Post Orgasmic Chill


Sold this back years ago. Repurchased and dig it.
10Taproot
Blue-Sky Research


Hadn’t listened to this band in 20 years. Heavily nu metal, bat brings back some memories.
11Cave In
Jupiter


Really was into anything and everything that may fall under the progressive metal umbrella this year, including this album.
12Kingcrow
Eidos


Best band out of Rome, IT that I have ever heard.
13James LaBrie
Elements Of Persuasion


Been a Dream Theater fan for years, but never dived into this. Love the heavy with James voice.
14Leprous
Pitfalls


I had not listened to Leprous until 2020. Malina and Pitfalls were my first listens. Quickly rectified that.
15Riverside
Out of Myself


Same as above - missed out on this band until 2020. This first album is untouchable.
16Devin Townsend
Ocean Machine: Biomech


Same as above - never delved into anything Devin Townsend until 2020.
17Opeth
Ghost Reveries


Shocker for me as well - my first foray into Opeth was this Feb with this incredible album.
18Solace
Further


Stoner doom - love it!
19The Heavy Eyes
Heavy Eyes


A good stoner sound, similar to early The Sword albums.
20Freedom Hawk
Beast Remains


Stoner rock out of VA
21King Buffalo
Orion


Psychedelic stoner rock
22Tarot
Gravity of Light


Rediscovered this band. Had been a nightwish/Marco Hietala fan for many years. Great album.
23Astronoid
Astronoid


Alternative metal with emo vocals? Strangely works though
24Cyhra
No Halos In Hell


Jesper Stromblad has quite the distinctive sound - had been missing it.
