Hardcore with Slayer riffs is welcome here!
My good friend and I keep talking to each other about how 2020 was such a blur in terms of time and such a wet fart in terms of quality that despite keeping up with releases alright we've already forgotten what dropped this year.
I've never listened to eternal champion, anyone know why they're not on spotify?
Lot of great stuff this year (some hardcore mixed in there):
Emma Ruth Rundle & Thou
Forming the Void
Myth of I
Ripped To Shreds
War On Women
Zeal & Ardor
I thought the Ulcerate was impressive but didn’t get me going - that level of technical prowess is generally not what I enjoy the most in my music
Liked new Ulcerate a lot, and was actually surprised how melodic it was at times considering their last album pummeled me to bits.
Gonna just use this post for a shortlist of all the albums (mostly metal and hardcore) that are in the running for me. It's a mix of singles, EPs, and albums but I've never really cared about semantics there.

Currently finished edit: Wow. I listed to more this year than I thought. The top of list will likely be more towards the top of the list because those were the releases that came to mind before I started using my Youtube Music library as a reference.
Subject to change. Will likely be added to. Just using this list as a reference point for when and if I actually make a list.
Do yourself a favor and jump on their bandcamp. Start with Armor of Ire and don't look back.
Not sure why they're not on Spotify tbh
oh yeah Oranssi Pazuzu was good too!
I need to listen to the new Primitive Man & Paysage D’Hiver
I totally get why some bands don't want to/aren't able to use Spotify but man oh man it really does send the chances of me listening to a band more than a couple times straight down the toilet if they aren't on that platform, LOL. Over time I've really just put all my music consumption eggs in the Spotify basket so it's a chore to break away from that.
That's probably going to bite me in the ass one day when Spotify inevitably goes away but hey what can you do.
I don’t know how old you kids are but I remember when I had to save $ for a month to buy a record I had read about it an magazine & hope it was good
It's that reason specifically that when I'm not broke I try to maintain a habit of routinely blind-buying CD's from record stores. Keep some of that sensation alive. I often wish I'd been around for the era of tape-trading. That would've been so cool.
tape trading culture was soooo dope! wish I had been a part of that too
Can't believe this was released this year. Feels like I've known these songs a while lol. Time, pandemic, ect.
Años en Infierno
Where Only Gods May Tread
May You Be Held
some favorites from the year
I never got deep into it, but tape trading was fun. I remember buying blank VHS tapes in bulk. Wish I'd held onto/preserved more of that stuff.
lol didn’t mean to sound preachy!!
but yeah read some books!!
another one I actually really liked from this year that keeps growing! maybe his best?!
Books are so much easier to read than an e-reader or my phone. Gimme a paperback for something I really want to read.
Not that anyone cares, but I also finished my shortlist for now. It's also currently in subject to change without reason stage for the time being as I delve more into things like Eternal Champion and Ulcerate.
For fuck’s sake how hard is it to be a DECENT HUMAN BEING. Hopping off this band as soon as I got on.
wow why did no one mention that the Whitechapel album that came out last year is legitimately fantastic. it reminds me kinda of a deathcore Katatonia.
That sounds like 7 degrees of separation...
because it came out last year and not this year?
Ya guess I will but like @inspectorkemp said I really find it hard to listen to stuff not on spotify. Just cause it's one app for everything.
