Hey everyone! I'm new to all of this, so just wanted to say hello for my first post. I operate a small podcast/webzine named From Corners Unknown, located over in the States. We typically cover underground releases in extreme metal and dark ambient.

Recently, we published our year-end lists for 2020, and I was curious what some of your favorite albums from last year were as I'm always on the lookout for new and outlandish sounds.

@Halbeard wonderful! I actually only know one album on that entire list of yours haha. I have a bunch of listening to do

@fromcornersunknown heh, I'm into the more undergroundy music most of the time :D

@Halbeard even more underground than me, clearly! I need to step up my game

@fromcornersunknown my top releases of 2020 (not in that order) were:

Turia - Degen van Licht
Fluisteraars - Bloem
Nekrovault - Totenzug: Festering Peregrination
YounA - Zornvlouch
Oranssi Pazuzu - Mestarin kynsi
Afsky - Ofte jeg drømmer mig død
Konvent - Puritan Masochism
Freeways - True Bearings
Rope Sect - The great flood
Urfaust - Teufelsgeist
Paysage D‘hiver - Im Wald
Spectres & Teeth - No Magick Spawns!

@fromcornersunknown I will definitively check out your podcast and your top list(s)! Just gave it a quick look, and I just seem to know a few records, of which some appear in my list, too.
It’s going to be very interesting to discover what other stuff I missed in 2020, so thank you in advance! :)

@R Thank you so much :) Hopefully you dig the podcast; we have a tendency to go on a lot of weird and non-sensical diatribes. And I also have not heard of several releases on your list, so I will get to work on familiarizing myself with them!

I guess i habe to check your Podcast out , sounds cool \m/

As for last year:
Favourite Album: Cattle Decapitation -Death Atlas -this one preserved my sanity


... And Infant Anihilator: The Battle of Yaldabaoth

🤔 and they are both from 2019,
🤷‍♂️well, i discovered them in 2020

@Rhymling I couldn't get into Death Atlas nearly as much as their previous albums, but I'll give it a go again to see if my perception shifts. I also never gave Infant Annihilator's record a full spin, so I will go check that one out as well :)
