Grump's 2020

Since I don't think anybody else could take the crown from my No.1, here are my 4.5s from this apocalyptic year. Only the top3 feels ranked, the rest is presented in a random order.
Like You Are…I Once Was…Like I Am – You Will...

psychedelic rock
Wicked yet sweet, one of the most fun jams of the year... a '60s-worshipping psychedelic rock revival. I love this cassette.
12Paysage d'Hiver
Im Wald

black metal / lo-fi wind noises
Second best Paysage album, super long, super thick atmosphere: of course I loved it.
Kuoleman Kirjo

second wave black metal
Endless waves of melodic black metal riffs, slightly experimental vocals and surprisingly clean production. Horna never disappoints!
Bardo Exist

experimental electronics / noise / dark ambient
Beherit is back, and what a marvelous release this was! Looks like NHV stepped on the "Ulverian" path? Came out of nowhere, and I'm greatly impressed.

first wave black metal
Fuck yesssss, first wave BM which doesn't sound like Sodom! This was filthy, filled with raw energy. Also, "At War" was the heaviest song in this year.
8...and Oceans
Cosmic World Mother

symphonic black metal
This was sooooo heavy and cheesy enough... of course I loved this. Also the best comeback album of the year.
The Power of Yourself

dungeon synth / neoclassical
Howard Shore, but in dungeon synth. The variety within is incredible, cinematic and epic sound: I love this.
6Grieve (FIN)

atmospheric black metal
The EP of the year, 100% exact garascore, I'd say. I NEED MORE OF THIS!

This is why I love Amalie Bruun. I think she should stick to her folklore-worship direction, because this is an enchanting release.

space (/adventure) rock
~CARRY OOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!~ The sweetest rock jam in this year, I really love this band.
Thulêan Mysteries

dark ambient / dungeon synth
Damn fine farewell album, and the ultimate "Thulean Chillout Soundtrack".
10 Years Gone

Yeah - because emotions, I guess.
Uinuos Syömein Sota

(epic) viking / black metal
Endless storm of epic riffs. One of the most overwhelming metal albums I've ever heard.
