Metal Anarchy’s Top Albums Of 2020

I have put together a list of my top 15 albums of 2020. 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 the albums that I enjoyed the most this year:

15. AC/DC – “Power Up”

“Power Up” has everything one would expect from an AC/DC album. The record contains nothing but the kind of high octane rock and roll that the legendary group are known for. Some highlights from this one include “Demon Fire,” “Through The Mists Of Time,” and “Kick You When You’re Down.”

14. The Amity Affliction – “Everyone Loves You… Once You Leave Them”

“Everyone Loves You… Once You Leave Them” finds The Amity Affliction returning to their heavier roots. The effort still has its poppier elements, but it is much closer to the sound that fans want to hear from the band. Some highlights from this one include “All My Friends Are Dead,” “Soak Me In Bleach,” and “Baltimore Rain.”

13. Deftones – “Ohms”

Deftones’ latest album “Ohms” contains some of their best material to date. The record features heavy and cathartic tracks that are on display within a soundscape that seems to draw on all of the band’s influences. Some highlights from this one include the title track, “This Link Is Dead,” and “The Spell Of Mathematics.”

12. Killer Be Killed – “Reluctant Hero”

Ever since Killer Be Killed (Mastodon, Soulfly, The Dillinger Escape Plan, etc.) entered the scene with their self-titled album in 2014, fans have be clamoring for more music and they finally got it in the form of “Reluctant Hero.” The effort took the sound that worked on their first record and refined it to create something that managed to exceed everyone’s expectations. Highlights from this one include “From A Crowded Wound,” “Left Of Center,” and “Dead Limbs.”

11. The Bombpops – “Death In Venice Beach”

If you’re a fan of pop punk, then The Bombpops’ “Death In Venice Beach” is a must have. The album is chock full of contagious, high energy music that is topped off with dark lyrical content. Some highlights from this one include “Double Arrows Down,” “Blood Pact,” and “Zero Remorse.”

10. Green Day – “Father Of All Motherfuckers”

Green Day’s “Father Of All Motherfuckers” is different than what fans might have expected from the band, but in retrospect it ended being the kind of carefree album everyone needed in a year like 2020. The music is extremely catchy with an old-school rock vibe that just makes you want to move and sing along. Some highlights from this one include “Oh Yeah!,” “Stab You In The Heart,” and “Fire, Ready, Aim.”

09. Seether – “Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum”

“Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum” is Seether at their best. The record is heavy and anthemic with the kind of amazing lyrics that one would expect from the band. Some highlights from this one include “Beg,” “Bruised and Bloodied,” and “Buried In the Sand.”

08. Ozzy Osbourne – “Ordinary Man”

Ozzy Osbourne had to overcame numerous health issues to release his latest album “Ordinary Man,” but the Prince Of Darkness pulled it off and proved that he is as great as ever. The record maintains the classic feel of the frontman’s previous work while adding a more modern flair that’s bolstered by a star-studded cast of musicians. Highlights from this one include “Under The Graveyard,” “Scary Little Green Men,” and “Straight To Hell.”

07. Code Orange – “Underneath”

Code Orange are continuing to make waves in the metal community with their latest album “Underneath.” The effort builds on the success of “Forever” with industrial and electronic infused hardcore that keeps you mesmerized as you head down a chaotic, horror tinged path. Some highlights from this one include “Swallowing The Rabbit Whole,” “Sulfur Surrounding,” and “Last Ones Left.”

06. The Black Dahlia Murder – “Verminous”

The Black Dahlia Murder never disappoint and “Verminous” is no exception. The album is nothing but brutal, contagious, melodic death metal that you can’t help but blast at ear shattering volumes. Some highlights from this one include the title track, “Sunless Empire,” and “The Wereworm’s Feast.”

05. Poppy – “I Disagree”

With “I Disagree”, Poppy moved even further away from bubblegum pop into the metal territory. The diverse album combines elements of industrial and nu metal with elements of pop and EDM to create a post-genre record filled with compelling tracks. Some highlights from this one include the title track, “Concrete,” and “Bloodmoney.”

04. Lamb Of God – “Lamb Of God”

Lamb Of God’s self-titled album is pure, unadulterated metal from a band that have been killing it for nearly three decades. It’s full of the kind of pummeling tracks that one would expect from the group and it is definitely worthy of the name “Lamb Of God.” Some highlights from this one include “Reality Bath,” “Resurrection Man,” and “On The Hook.”

03. Trivium – “What The Dead Men Say”

Trivium’s “What The Dead Men Say” feels like a culmination of all their past work and it shows why the band continue stay on top of the metal world. The effort is full of heavy tracks with big choruses that keep you rocking the whole way through. Some highlights from this one include “Catastrophist,” “Bleed Into Me,” and “Scattering The Ashes.”

02. Bring Me The Horizon – “Post Human: Survival Horror”

Bring Me The Horizon’s latest release “Post Human: Survival Horror” finds the band returning to heavier music, while still continuing to evolve. The record is infectious from beginning to end and the collaborations with Amy Lee (Evanescence), BABYMETAL, Yungblud, and Nova Twins make it even better. Some highlights from this one include “Kingslayer,” “Teardrops,” and “Obey.”

01. Corey Taylor – “CMFT”

Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor officially stepped out on his own this year with the release of “CMFT.” The album has a fun party vibe and it runs the gamut from rock to country to punk to hip-hop, making it so there’s a little something for everyone. Some highlights from this one include “HWY 666,” “Culture Head,” and “CMFT Must Be Stopped.”
