Lists

A small grab of what we are looking forward to the most of the many exceptional releases coming our way during May 2022!

With 2021 being again a bit of a weird year, while looking forward to a hopefully better 2022, lets look back at some of the albums I enjoyed the most this past year.

Last month of 2021, still some releases coming in December that are most anticipated by our team of writers!

These metalcore releases are some of the ones that impressed us the most in 2020, but didn’t get the much needed attention yet from us!

Some good old familiars and a couple of big surprises made it to the albums of the year 2020 for Glenn!

It wasn’t all bad in 2020. Although it seemed like that sometimes. An example are these awesome albums that were released this year. The bands couldn’t tour, but I’m sure they will the first moment they can. Enjoy!
