Extra-late this year.
Frayle – 1692
If Mykur was doom metal instead of black metal. Doom-gaze.
Painted Doll – How to Draw Fire
A comedian/musician and the drummer from Autopsy make great power-pop.
Hum – Inlet
Surprise release that was surprisingly good.
Fake Names – s/t
Not that this sounds like Dag Nasty but it’s what Dag Nasty should sound like in 2020. Best thing Brian Baker has been on since the first Junkyard album.
Melkbelly – PITH
Sounds like the Breeders with a speedfreak drummer and a bit more noise.
JG Thirlwell & Simon Steensland – Oscillospheria
Epic symphonic soundtrack like music.
Wytch Hazel – III Pentecost
Jesus jams with the NWOBHM and Wishbone Ash.
Myrkur – Folkesange
Euro folk. No black metal.
Huntsmen – Mandala of Fear
Mastodon type metal with Wishbone Ash and Yes thrown in,
Henrik Palm – Poverty Metal
Ex-Nameless ghoul makes a record that sounds like Ghost. Go figure. Great cover of Twisted Sister’s “Destroyer.”
