The very long and belated sequel to my first list last year. Just due to circumstances and motivation I've been able to compile it now. I was going to do a "best of" 2020 list a year too late but it was needed that I do this first. I still have about 35 albums to listen to from last year. Even so, I left a lot off. Crazy. A lot of these I've added myself and/or have only my vote, so if there's something you don't recognize, consider it a rec! Some of this stuff is killer and this half was much better than my first-half list. Not in any particular order but what was easiest for me to input in.
Too Black Metal for me, but congratulations of gathering together so many bands that I don't know. well I know Buckethead, what is this his 400th album or something, and I'm down with Protest The Hero, I listened to Palimpsest (2020), it was pretty good.
Ever since 2018 modern BM has been creeping in my lists all over the place lol, but I actually thought I didn't have much of it here this time. BH might be on 400 albums, I ranked his 2015 stuff last month and I took a break lol. Palimpsest is my favorite PtH since Scurrilous so I'm glad they came back with something strong after a few years.
