Metal Anarchy’s Top Albums Of 2021

I have put together a list of my top 10 albums of 2021. You can check that out below. This is just for fun and I know I probably left out some of your favorites, but these are all of the albums that I enjoyed the most this year:

10. Jinjer – “Wallflowers”

“Wallflowers” finds Jinjer at the top of their game. It offers fans nothing short of a masterful display of progressive metal through a barrage of aggressive and groove-orientated tracks. Some highlights from this one include: “Vortex,” “Disclosure!,” and “Pearls And Swine.”

09. Plush – “Plush”

The self-titled debut album from Plush proves that rock and roll is alive and well. It’s a record full of rock anthems from a young band, who are sure to make waves in the music world for years to come. Some highlights from this one include: “Athena,” “Hate,” and “Sober.”

08. The Pretty Reckless – “Death By Rock And Roll”

“Death By Rock And Roll” takes the emotional toll of loss and pain and transforms it into pure and cathartic rock music. It continues to show growth from a band who have continuously cranked out high quality material since their inception. Some highlights from this one include: the title track, “Only Love Can Save Me Now,” and “Witches Burn.”

07. Mastodon – “Hushed And Grim”

“Hushed And Grim” is one of Mastodon’s best albums to date. It combines grief-laden lyrics with impeccable musicianship to create a piece of art that takes the listener on a journey. Some highlights from this one include: “Pain With An Anchor,” Teardrinker,” and “Gobblers Of Dregs.”

06. Royal Blood – “Typhoons”

“Typhoons” is what happens when you throw Royal Blood’s infectious rock sound into a disco blender. The material is extremely catchy and you can’t help but move along to it. Some highlights from this one include: “Trouble’s Coming,” the title track, and “Boilermaker.”

05. Every Time I Die – “Radical”

“Radical” is quintessential Every Time I Die. The record fuses heavy and chaotic music with clever lyrics that grab the listener the whole way through. Some highlights from this one include: “Dark Distance,” “Planet Shit,” and “Desperate Pleasures.”

04. Bullet For My Valentine – “Bullet For My Valentine”

Bullet For My Valentine’s new self-titled album takes the most aggressive aspects of the band’s sound and puts them at the forefront to create some of the group’s heaviest material to date. It is a record that is truly worthy of the name “Bullet For My Valentine.” Some highlights from this one include: “Knives,” “Shatter,” and the closer “Death By A Thousand Cuts.”

03. Trivium – “In The Court Of The Dragon”

“In The Court Of The Dragon” takes all of the musical elements of Trivium’s past work and combines them with mythological storytelling to create a record that’s epic as hell. It has everything a metal fan can want and you can’t help but headbang the whole way through. Some highlights from this one include: “The Shadow Of The Abattoir,” “Like A Sword Over Damocles,” and “The Phalanx.”

02. Spiritbox – “Eternal Blue”

“Eternal Blue” is the highly anticipated debut album from Spiritbox and it definitely did not disappoint. It is everything one would want in a record, commanding vocals and passionate lyrics backed by heavy and melodic music. Some highlights from this one include: “Holy Roller,” “Circle With Me,” and “Constance.”

01. Evanescence – “The Bitter Truth”

“The Bitter Truth” is Evanescence’s first album of all new material since 2011 and the band definitely returned with a bang. The record is a hard rock masterpiece that helps the listener uncover light within the darkness as they are guided through the soundscape by Amy Lee’s iconic powerhouse vocals. Some highlights from this one include “Wasted On You,” “Better Without You,” and “Use My Voice.”

Jinjer Premiere “Disclosure!” Music Video

Jinjer have shared a new video for their song “Disclosure!.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Wallflowers.”

Bassist Eugene Abdukhanov commented:

“Believe it or not it is not always easy being in the spotlight all the time … with each success this band reaches there is a huge amount of expectations from the outside that come with each step we make. From personal opinions to politics and now to the pandemic, our every move is scrutinized and judged by the outside. Although it‘s not always fun, we would not have it any other way…”

“The track ‘Disclosure!” and the video itself is a very important video for Jinjer. Not only is it one of our favorite tracks on the new album as well as live, our ex-guitarist Dmitriy Oksen stars in the video and was great to work with him again, even if it‘s in a different capacity now.”

Jinjer Drummer Vlad Ulasevich To Return To The Stage Tonight After Testing Negative For COVID-19

Jinjer Drummer Vlad Ulasevich To Miss Immediate Live Shows After Testing Positive For COVID-19

Jinjer drummer Vlad Ulasevich has tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, he will be missing the band’s immediate live shows. The group commented:

“Brothers and sisters, there is no easy way to say this but unfortunately our drummer Vlad has tested positive for COVID and will have to sit out the first few shows until he recovers. He is doing fine and has no symptoms! The rest of us are healthy and tested negative. That being said, we will not cancel any shows and have decided to push on using his pre-recorded live drum tracks! We waited two long years to rock with you and will do our best to make this tour happen… and it will be one to remember for sure! See you in a few Seattle – let’s do this!!”

Twelve Foot Ninja Premiere New Video For “Over And Out” Featuring Jinjer’s Tatiana Shmailyuk

Twelve Foot Ninja have premiered a new video for their latest single “Over And Out.” This track features Jinjer’s Tatiana Shmailyuk and it will appear on the band’s new album “Vengeance.” As previously reported, that effort will be released on October 15 alongside a graphic novel of the same name and a new “high fantasy” novel titled “The Wyvern And The Wolf.” Guitarist Stevic MacKay said the following about the clip:

“A man covered in cow shit wanders the Australian bush seeking clarity. Tortured by recurring dreams about having no face, meeting the ferryman in a Finnish swamp, old twitchy people with straw heads, vacuuming the forest, cradling a pike and squash playing goat people who spoil Christmas and drink everyone’s dregs…The only obvious thing to do is find a door Goblin to suck ‘dream gravy’ (aka Vegemite) off his fingers so he can teleport to a Ukrainian mechanical genie to blow his mind with Australian metaphors about being fucked in the head.”

Twelve Foot Ninja Premiere New Song “Over And Out” Featuring Jinjer’s Tatiana Shmailyuk

Twelve Foot Ninja have premiered a new song titled “Over And Out.” This track features Jinjer’s Tatiana Shmailyuk and it will appear on the band’s new album “Vengeance.” As previously reported, that effort will be released on October 15 alongside a graphic novel of the same name and a new “high fantasy” novel titled “The Wyvern And The Wolf.”

Twelve Foot Ninja’s Kin Etik commented:

“The song is an ode to the complicated relationship we have with our own mortality and how death can seem like the arms of a lover beckoning us to an early demise. The French first coined the phrase ‘l’appel du vide,’ which is the feeling of wondering what it would be like to jump in front of a truck or to jump off a cliff. It translates into English as the ‘call of the void.’ The phenomenon is actually a positive affirmation that by not answering the call you unequivocally choose life.”

He also commented on working with Shmailyuk:

“We wanted someone who could represent the lyric ‘the devil in my blood’ – both the darkness and the light. Tatiana embodies what we needed for this track perfectly so asking her to feature on it was a no brainer. Her band Jinjer and Twelve Foot Ninja have played together a number of times and we instantly connected the first time we met in the Ukraine capital Kyiv. We’ve since tom to respect Tatiana as a musician and as a human so we’re stoked she’s agreed to jump on this track.”

Shmailyuk added:

“When the TFN guys asked me to feature on one of their new tracks, I immediately said yes without even hearing it! The song and video were a lot of fun and very different from anything I’ve done with Jinjer… it’s a great pleasure to be an honorary member of the Twelve Foot Ninja clan now!”

Jinjer Premiere “Wallflower” Music Video

Jinjer have premiered a new video for their new song “Wallflower.” This track is from the band’s new album “Wallflowers,” which will be released on August 27. The group commented:

“As the director Basil Pereverzev told us ‘Never give up and act in due course with the forces of the reality you have chosen for yourself’… ‘Wallflower‘ is one of a kind. This is a song we have lived through time and time again. Every single note, every percussion hit, every word Tatiana sings is well-thought through and shines. And the story which rolls out in the video is the best compliment to this song. Definitely the most multilayered work we have delivered sonically and visually. We hope that our fans can also relate the video and take something meaningful from it as well.”

Jinjer Premiere “Mediator” Music Video

Jinjer have premiered a new video for their new song “Mediator.” This track is from the band’s new album “Wallflowers,” which will be released on August 27. The group commented:

“With years getting older, we often realize that the world around us is far from what we expected it to be. Through the eyes of a kid everything seemed way more colorful, better and optimistic, didn’t it? When did it all turn wrong? When did it all turn so gray? Is this really the world’s fault? Or it is only about us chasing the wrong goals… the wrong careers, ambitions and achievements, rather than embracing one important truth… Rephrasing John Lennon, if one chases something else other than happiness, then they didn’t understand life at all…”
