Albums of the Year 2019

/ 0 Comments / By :

It’s the end of the year again, as usual, we have the musical taste of every member of our team together to compile what we want to put forward as some of the best releases of the year. It gives us a list with a nice diversity in genres and bands (from “big ones” to “underground”) and hopefully covers most of the releases that are worth spending some time on listening to. So without further-ado… here is GRIMM’s list of albums of the year 2019!


Because at some point one needs to make hard choices, there are some great releases that haven’t made it to out top 10 list of 2019. But since there are many great releases still that have been brought up by our writers, we don’t want to keep these from you. You never know you discover something awesome still. So from highest ranking to lowest ranking, here is the list of those who didn’t score high enough to make it to the top:
