Best Albums of 2021

Post by hellboy » Tue Nov 30, 2021 6:19 pm

December is upon us, so it's about time we started sharing best of lists for the year. As usual, I have a shortlist of all the albums I've liked this year below, which I'll whittle down (and no doubt add to) in the next few weeks. Stay tuned for a poll so we can do an official Fourtheye Readers list.

Anyway, here's a list of albums from 2021 I thought were alright. (some of these are compilations and such and wouldn't be eligible for my poll) Please sling your arrows of disappointment/approval at me:

For those who want it in playlist form: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3B1tU ... 4ca8154904

Tetrach - Addicted (nu-metal-ish)
Sanctioned - Annexation (grind)
Red Fang - Arrows (stoner rock)
Fiddlehead - Between the Richness (punk)

Ministry - Moral Hygiene (industrial metal)

The worst album ever made by a band I either like or have liked at some point.

And yes, that includes St Anger.

It's worse than that.

Filth Pig preceded the entire 00's infatuation with slow heavy, doom metal by about 10 years.

And is choice.

Didn't listen that much from 2021 but I really liked:

Gojira - Fortitude
Godspeed you black Emperor - G_d's per
The dead daisies - holy ground

The best song I hear is stronger from the gathering, album in 2022.

Here's my best albums of 2021 list:

https://www.fourtheye.net/2022/01/hellb ... s-of-2021/

Tomahawk – Tonic Immobility

Stats maybe tell a different story though, with Tomahawk’s Tonic Immobility being my most listened to. Given that I thought the album was pretty good, I guess I should consider it my favourite. It’s much, much better than their last album, which I thought was pretty disappointing. Don’t go expecting any different sound or anything though, as much as I like this album, my only real criticism is that it sounds like Mit Gas 2.0. But I loved that album, so it’s a minor complaint!


Dvne – Etemen Ænka

Dvne are a 5-piece metal band from Scotland, and released a pretty great album very much on the prog end of the spectrum. Long sweeping songs with great riffs and cool vocals


Portrayal of Guilt – We Are Always Alone

Portrayal of Guilt has the rare honour of releasing two great albums this year (the other edgily named Christfucker) and We Are Always Alone is the best of them. This band create a noise filled brand of hardcore, and would appeal to those into Converge and the like


Turnstile – GLOW ON

Another hardcore band, this time on the more rocky side of equation. Turnstile have put out a great collection of catchy, screamable punk.


Sanctioned – Annexation

It wouldn’t be a top 10 list of mind without some grindcore, and here we are. Sanctioned hail from Melbourne, and put out a ripper of an album


Pupil Slicer – Mirrors

Pupil Slicer I’d put roughly into that seme genre of mathcore that the likes of Dillinger Escape Plan belong to, but they’re right on the more abrasive end of the spectrum


Amyl and the Sniffers – Comfort To Me

Plenty of strong Australian releases this year, and Amyl and the Sniffers are a bit of a hype band at the moment. I went into this album ready to dislike it, and was surprised by it’s raw power and charming lyrics. Don’t expect musical virtuosity, and you’ll enjoy this Aussie rock album


Succumb – XXI

I can across Succumb late in the year from a few other top 10 lists, and it took only one listen to realise they were on point. Playing a brand of death metal that wavers into Black at times, there’s some great musicianship on this album, and it’s catchy as fuck too.


I Am Duckeye – WELT

Plenty of Melbourne bands in this list, I Am Duckeye being one of them. I love a decent noise rock album, and this one ticks all the right boxes.


Burial Pit – SUBHUMAN SCUM

Yet another Australian band, this group hails from Sydney and released a killer sludge/doom metal album SUBHUMAN SCUM. Super heavy riffs, with some brutal vocals. Get on it!

Decided upon Genghis Tron's Dream Weapon as my favourite album of 2021. Deviates away from the usual genres I like and was taken by surprise by how good this album is.
Deftones!
