WHAT WERE MY FAVORITE
ALBUMS OF 2020?
THE MASSACRE: Fearmonger
This a ridiculous masterpiece of speed and accuracy, a long wait for this one but so worth it.
Titans Of Creation
After a few lackluster albums, this one has the memorable riffs, it feels like Testament but manages to breath some new life into the formula. Great work!
While the songs tend to blend together some, it's an impressive blast fest all the way through.
DEATH: Throes of Joy in the Jaws of Defeatism
A little more experimental than the last few releases, but still has plenty of those classic Napalm riffs, and Barney's great screams.
OF FLESH: Nucleus
An album that may never have happened, band founder Erik Lindmark's final chapter before his untimely death, a huge thanks to the rest of the band for sharing these final songs with us.
|6) OZZY OSBOURNE: Ordinary
A bit odd for Ozzy to make my top 10, but this album is really emotional, it feels like a direct link to a man who has lived highs and lows, has regrets and is afraid of his life ending. Just a great soulful album.
Solitude In Madness
Quality Vader in the mold of their older albums, just great songs.
Classic death metal that is well played and has many standout riffs.
An EP, but really strong material, plenty of complexity mixed in with the blasts, and a sound that smashes you in the face.
|10) SKELETAL REMAINS: The
Entombment of Chaos
More classic style death metal, fun stuff with great riffs, fans of old Cannibal Corpse and Morbid Angel rejoice!
La Grande Mascarade
A short EP, more a teaser for their new works, so that's why this only gets an honorable mention, but quality stuff.
Also a short EP as a teaser for their new album (delayed due to COVID), but some of the best riffs Carcass have written since their return. It's got me really excited about their new album.
