|My Top 20 of 2020|
2020 was one of the worst years in humankind history. But music.... music never left, music was and will always be there for us
Revocation's Dave Davidson answers the question of what Voivod would sound like if the late Layne Staley and Jerry Cantrell had sung with them. Yes, you read well. Wanna listen to some experimental prog goth grunge? This is the way to go!
The Eternal Resonance
Remember Sweden's Morbus Chron? Well, they came back with a revenge!
|18||Hail Spirit Noir|
Eden In Reverse
The greek psychedelic black metal outfit incorporates clean vocals and more experimental structures throughout the whole thing with great results
Stare Into Death and Be Still
I know, I know.... for many this was among the top 5. I get it, it just didn't speak to me the way it did to other people. Anyway, its combination of death, doom and post metal doesn't fall short of a masterpiece
|16||Emma Ruth Rundle and Thou|
May Our Chambers Be Full
This may seem like an odd mix, but it sure works! The combination of Emma's heavenly voice together with Bryan's demonic laments is something we didn't know we needed
The Japanese mythical band releases one more album. I couldn't even count what number this is. But they sure don't seem to be slowing down by putting out one of their fastest and heaviest albums yet!
|14||Bell Witch and Aerial Ruin|
Stygian Bough Volume 1
Have you ever heard about the term funeral folk doom? if not, give this a try. You won't regret it
Flowers of Evil
"Wolves evolve". This was the moto with which the norwegians presented their 11th studio LP. And believe me, this dark synthwave masterpiece proves it!
Justin Broadrick went soft? No! He just matured
The American alternative band returns after 22 years adding some post rock to their already huge legend
|10||Crippled Black Phoenix|
I once heard about a band called Crippled Black Phoenix which played some kind of progressive post rock. Let me tell you I treasure that day
What can I say? It's Deftones man!!!
The swedish goth doom masters continue evolving without losing their identity
Mandala of Fear
This American post metalers take a huge step forward with their second album throwing some doom, sludge and even americana into the mix
Come and See
Have you ever wondered what blues would sound like through the lense of black metal? Well, here you go
The new kings of stoner doom add a little more prog to their already excellent formula
Endless Twilight of Codependent Love
Prog black avantgarde post whatever..... the thing is this album rocks! Maybe the best from the icelandic masters
These Finnsh guys sure know how to put the psych in black metal
|2||Pain of Salvation|
This band from Sweden never ceases to amaze! After more than 20 years and with 10 albums under their arm they continue trying to find ways to push their creative limits
The All Is One
The best of the best. The Norwegian psych prog rockers did it again! Is it stoner? Is it prog? Who cares?!!! Sit back and enjoy!
