Old Nick's Top-30 Of 2020

The title is pretty much self explanatory. This is the list of albums released in 2020 that I listened to the most in the past year. The first five are in strict order of preference, the rest are a bit more loosely placed.

Best demo: Lamp Of Murmuur - The Burning Spears Of Crimson Agony

1. Anaal Nathrakh - Endarkenment
2. Psychotic Waltz - The God-Shaped Void
3. Sweven - The Eternal Resonance

5. Dool - Summerland

Old Nick's Top-30 Of 2019

This is the list of albums I had on heavy rotation during 2019. If an album was very good but way too long or demanding to listen to it more than twice, you won't see it here (e.g. Esoteric). I have limited attention span and favourite albums are called "favourite" because we keep listening to them non-stop. The order below is more or less accurate.

1. Atlantean Kodex - The Course Of Empire
2. Idle Hands - Mana
3. Diamond Head - The Coffin Train
4. Flotsam And Jetsam - The End Of Chaos
5. Numenorean - Adore

Old Nick's Top-30 Of 2018

These are the 30 albums I listened to the most in 2018. I haven't paid much attention to the albums' order. It's been a pretty good year for metal, just like every year; if you are willing to search, you will find. I'd love to hear how good or bad you think this list is.

Best EP: Cleõphüzz - Wizard Of Phüzz

1. Et Moriemur - Epigrammata
2. Judas Priest - Firepower
3. Varathron - Patriarchs Of Evil
4. Dee Snider - For The Love Of Metal
5. Chapel Of Disease - ...And As We Have Seen The Storm, We Have Embraced The Eye
