Best 20 of 2020

Well after a shit year the only good thing was there was plenty of great releases put out and here are my picks and it wasn’t easy, but Orion for me took the honor just a classic album of pure death thrash but this list has black metal, death metal, death/thrash black/thrash all that good shit!

I basically gathered the best full lengths, EP, Splits and demos, you may ask why I praised some demos in my reviews but didn’t make the list, well maybe how many tracks featured or it was the bands first effort but if you get mentioned here take it as a compliment as I only list bands that I see potential in and get an honorable mention like Hell Possession, Ashakk Xul, Deconsekrated, To Death, etc. and some stuff I can’t even get like the full length from Ares Kult and even contacted the band but told me the label has the rights to the release and can’t even buy a digital copy, pretty fucking sad if that’s the case.

This list was made from what bands sent me and what I could gather on my own as there is a wave of bands out there and I just can’t get to it all, if you have something you think I should listen to just let me know its that simple.
At the bottom is a video of a track from each release so 21 as a split made the cut, cheers!
