Still catching up on the unholy goodness that 2020 had to offer? We're here to
help. If you have yet to view any of our
year-end lists, and have no intention of doing so, we've compiled our favorite tracks from
each of the albums that made the cut onto a Spotify playlist.
You can get to that playlist using this link.
If you want to know the playlist but for some reason don't want to follow that link above, then read on after the break!
I enjoy working out in the mornings before my family wakes up/I go to work. There's something about getting a good sweat in before the day actually gets started that appeals to me, and it's also my time. I have a wife, a toddler, and a baby due in a couple months, and while I love them all to death, I need time to be by myself. So my alarm goes off at 3:15, I slug down a quick cup of coffee, and then it's out to the garage for an hour to an hour and a half of me time. If I keep this up, maybe I'll go into my actual workouts, but for now, let's get to why this belongs on a metal blog.

Oh 2020, where do we even begin? You were a year that kept devouring more and more for itself, but if you were good for anything it was making obvious the value of music. In a year where the world is on pause, escapism becomes a hot commodity. Movies and video games will always offer that to an extent, but there's something completely unique to letting music take you on its own journey. From desolate forests to the American Wild West, my favorites from this year took me to some pretty sublime places. Hopefully, they can bring you a little comfort as well.
Check out my favorites from this abysmal year after the break!
Listen, we all just lived through the same year, so let's not bother rehashing it. Instead, let's jump right into fifteen albums that were bright spots in 2020, like finding graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate bars right next to a big ol' dumpster fire!
