I guess I'm more of a mainstream metal fan as I barely know most of those bands and don't own a single one of those albums.

I haven't heard of a single band. The author seems to only listen to doom and black metal bands, which is a ridiculous limit to a "best album of the year" list

I am not familiar with any of the artists either. I am more of a metalcore/prog fan. I don't really like doom metal.

This was awesome, thanks. I also really enjoy bands like Alien Weaponry and The Hu where their culture is a huge part of the music.

Yeesh. I own a couple albums from that list and have heard of a few more. But that list reeks of pretentiousness of how obscure can I get. Love ‘em or hate ‘em but there were some good albums released this year by some of the bigger bands that should be on that list.

Yeah that first list is far from mainstream, but I'm not sure it's fair to say it was made just to be pretentious. This thread definitely doesn't tend to dip into much of the more extreme forms of metal from what I can tell, which narrows the field a tonne. Most of the bands he included are pretty big in the metal community.

Also, Neptunian Maximalism is insane and amazing, but really more abstract jazz.

I listen to just about everything that comes out, and I know and like a lot on that list. Overall I'm not crazy about most traditional, metalcore, doom, or black metal so my scope is quite different from this thread overall. My list definitely weighs heavily into more obscure death metal or grindcore personally, but I'm fully aware that most posters here wouldn't be into them.

Just to post some of my favourites in case anybody is interested:

Black Metal:
Cauldron Black Ram
Creature

Death Metal / Grindcore:
Cadaver
Earth Rot
Encenathrakh
Eternal Rot
Internal Rot
Kruelty
Necrot (in the linked list)
Primitive Man (in the linked list)
Temple of Void
Undeath
Wake (in the linked list, Calgarian band too!)

Heavy/Sludge Metal:
Demonic Death Judge
Ilsa

Probably the most accessible albums I'd put on my list:
Æther Realm (poppy melodic death metal)


Igorrr (uh... everything in an insane industrial mix)


Haken (progressive metal with clean vocals)


Falconer (folk/power metal)

Any best of metal 2020 list that doesn't include (in some position) Lamb of God is straight up bizarre. That album was damn incredible.

Eh, I thought it was ok.

Looks like it's one of their worst rated albums:

Momento Mori is an amazing track.

I like how this list as well as the prior have Spirit Adrift in their top spins. If one hasn't listened to Spirit Adrift (this album and even more so their prior, Divided By Darkness) and call themselves a Metal fan I'd have to question that. Best Metal band in the last 5 years for me (and I'm an old curmudgeon who mainly listens to stoner rock/metal as well as the classics like Thin Lizzy, ACDC, UFO...).

A lot of other really good albums on those lists despite not being "mainstream" Metal. The Oranssi, Wayfarer, Necrot, Eternal Champion, Passage d’Hiver, etc. are all great albums from a garbage year. I'd recommend listening to something not normally in one's wheelhouse with open ears. Most of the really good stuff is getting made in a lot less of a spotlight.

I also dig that CJSW has the latest Dead Quiet in their top 10 (As Troutman posted). While not as good as their prior, IMO, it's still a killer disc (I also still support physical media).

Did a search on this thread, and no Moonspell came up. I like this band.

Frozen Soul just released the best death metal album of 2021 only 8 days into the year.
