With all its difficulties and surprises, 2020 has finally come to its end. A year that was cruel on almost all of us, but it was worse for the music industry, when all concerts and shows were forced to be cancelled and left the bands not able to celebrate their releases properly with their fans. However, metal musicians released tons of great albums that cheered up fans who listened and banged their heads in isolation! Here, we listed 13 of the best of them for you that we recommend listening to, if you haven’t done so already.
1- VADER – Solitude In Madness
2- WOLF – Feeding The Machine
3- TESTAMENT – Titans of Creation
4- AYREON – Transitus
5- SONS OF APOLLO – MMXX
6- ONSLAUGHT – Religious Suicide
7- THERION – Leviathan
8- REECE: Cacophony of Souls
9- RAIDER – Guardian Of The Fire
10- ANGELES – Hell on High Heels
11- INSIDIOUS DISEASE – After Death
12- JINJER – Alive in Melbourne
13- MYRKUR – Folkesange
There were also a few interesting and surprising things that happened in 2020 that we would like to mention here aswell.
- In 2020, a few artists were able to be among their fans but in unusual ways. Doro Pesch was one of them, who played her metal for her fans but this time in their cars. Not as great as the usual shows but still better than nothing!
- Between all the bad news, 2020 had a great surprise for die hard fans of ICED EARTH who followed them from their very beginning. Surely the news of the reunion of Matt Barlow and Jon Schaffer in a new project brought smiles to their fans faces and of course our Chief Editor!
