2020 #51-151

So this is pretty much going to close out my 2020. Naturally, there's going to be a lot left on the cutting room floor and there's enough leftover to make another 100 list easy. But I'll probably not do that. If I come across some stuff in my bookmarks I'm just going to add it to my top 50 since there's room on that.
1Draconian
Under a Godless Veil


#51

This is really really good, glad I have it at least here.
2Bather
Phantom Guilt


#52

Just heard this last night, but it's a puncher. Here's a link to the Bandcamp so you all can here it. It's 17 minutes. Let's go get heavy.

3Aronious
Perspicacity


#53

Weakest part for me is Self Induced Affliction and The Digital Age.
4Svart Crown
Wolves Among The Ashes


#54

Impressive, to say the least. First time listener of the band.
5Dearth
To Crown All Befoulment


#55

This was actually rather high up on my first Top 50 list, but some newer additions made me sacrifice the good spots, and I suppose one could say this is a little derivative but it still brings some good riffs, tones, and melodies a lá Dearth from Deathspell's Paracletus. Just with more of the emphasis on groove rather than frenetic puncturing.
6Sumac
Two Beasts


#56

[EP]
7Exgenesis
Solve et Coagula


#57

"Doom me."
8Haunt (USA-CA)
Mind Freeze


#58

One of two full length releases last year, and this turned me on to his back catalog, but I did not like the other one that had come out last year, Flashback. This might be a little high here but it is enjoyable
9Deftones
Ohms


#59
10Omegavortex
Black Abomination Spawn


#60
11Night Crowned
Impius Viam


#61

Surprisingly intense.

#65
16Deluge

#66
17Blaze of Perdition
The Harrowing of Hearts


#67
18Bedsore

#68

Funnily, not the only album to come out with this title last year.
19Batushka
Raskol


#69
20Killer Be Killed
Reluctant Hero


#70

A real thrill
21Unurnment
Self-Immolation Suite


#71
22Void Rot
Descending Pillars


#72
23Ergodic
Ergodic


#73

[EP]

It's pretty standard but I still dig it.
24Amnutseba
Emanatism


#74
25Stomb
From Nihil


#75

Instrumental djent that isn't all that bad even though it conforms too closely to the genre.
26Lamentari
Missa Pro Defunctis


#76

I think I have the only vote on this, so check it out for some quick 20 minute orchestral BM.
27Deathwhite
Grave Image


#77

Slipped under the radar I think but this has some great moody tracks on here. I have been meaning to come back to this and listen to it some more.

38Zolfo
Delusion of Negation


#88

Some pretty dark, mental stuff.
39Exhalants
Atonement


#89
40Spectrum of Delusion
Neoconception


#90

The bass in this is so good and what drives everything here, and it sounds like it's lifted straight off of Prehistoricisms.

So if you made it this far, I was going to have Sodom - Genesis XIX close this out, until I gave this nutter of a listen last night. So here's the YouTube link and check this 12 minute seering blister of crazed vocalizings over some black death rippers and let me know what you think.
