I think the new Mr Bungle is the best thing Mike Patton has ever done, each time I listen to it I move it up in my 2020 aoty list

^ I was surprised when I heard it, one that I need to listen to more. I bought their first album when it was released way back and it left me cold but this sounds pretty good and not what I was expecting.

I put this into my best of the year list:
STRYPER - Even the Devil Believes cover

I just gave it a re-listen, and there's some damn fine solid metal on there.

^ I was caught out by how decent it was. Someone recommended it to me and it’s heavier than I remember them being. Will likely be on my list.

Yeah, Spotify flicked on to some of their old stuff when I last finished listening to it and it was quite feeble in comparison. And even if you're not hooked by the message behind it, the positivity of the whole thing is quite refreshing too.

No clue what that is, but it's possibly the worst album art as well

Finally checked out the new Boris, awesome stuff. Makes me want more sludge thrash.

Agreed. I keep alternating Boris and Napalm Death for AOTY. Basically when I lixten to one, it takes top spot and vice versa

I'll throw this one in here that maybe you all don't know, since I had to add it before voting:


From the same mastermind as the sludge/doom/drone metal act Hell.

Back up a minute everyone, how come certain people here seem to have completly missed that Lascaille's Shroud released not one, but two studio albums in 2020?

^ Massive omission from me, I completely forget about them while holding out that he may do physical releases again (he hasn't done any since The Roads Leading North). I don't normally buy digital only.

In this case though, I think I will, because I found out recently that Brent Windnagle, the sole musician in the project, is in dire straits financially after undergoing spinal surgery and is facing eviction from his home right in the middle of his recovery period and can use every $ he can get.

Going to have to give these a few spins in the next ten days to properly digest them, but on first impression Othercosmic Divinations I went high in my list. Just started Wounds.

These two are definitely featuring highly in my list now. Thanks for reminding me Ashley. I'd have definitely forgot these existed otherwise. 

28 on my list now. I still need to replay a few to get to 30 and maybe a few on the lower end of my list will miss out.

I've listened to bugger all music this month so far due to trying to catch up with loads of films and Tv from over Christmas (and of course tons of stuff I want to watch on Prime expires all at once including a series I was barely half way through). But I should have a respectable list by the 31st. I always wish I'd voted for / heard something in hindsight anyway.

I'm going to have to see if I can work those in as well.
