WHAT WERE MY FAVORITE
ALBUMS OF 2019?
Devin is just the most crazy musician, he makes another epic masterpiece of heaviness, catchiness and complexity.
OF PENANCE: Misotheism
Wasn't expecting much from this release, but they managed to make it all gel and created probably the best album the band has ever produced.
DEATH: Wretched Illusions
My love of old Obituary brings this album to the forefront of the list, great retro style album.
Just the most bludgeoning album I may have ever heard, your ears will bleed, and your head will save in.
DISGORGE: Slithering Evisceration
While nothing terribly new, this is just really, really well made technical death metal Solid release.
|6) VOYAGER: Colours
In The Sun
The masters of combining metal and pop, really catchy songs and excellent musicianship.
The second release from the band after their hiatus, the songs on this one are all top notch, and shows they still have tons to offer.
Not as strong as their last album, but the last instrumental song is still my most played song of 2019 in itunes.
ANNIHILATOR: The Battle Of Yaldabaoth
Absolutely ridiculous speed, this album is just brutal fun, it'll keep your head shaking from disbelief.
|10) NILE: Vile
Rounding out the top 10 is the new Nile, I didn't find the songs on this one to be as catchy, but even a decent Nile album is still far better than most everything out there.
DECAPITATION: Death Atlas
A late entry in the year, this is a really solid release from the band and its epic nature and strong songs brings it just shy of the top 10.
Certainly brutal and fast, but not as instantly catchy as their last album, this is still worth a look, but I hope their next one has a few more memorable riffs.
