I’m baaaack. Thanks to Brother Chris (aka The Necrolytic One) for taking the reins last week while I was recharging the batteries. How was Christmas? Get everything your heart desired? No? Well, while the pickings are slimmer this week than last, there’s still a couple worthy of that money you found stuffed in a card or two you may have received from someone who knew that cash is king, or from someone that barely knows you. And, since death metal had a banner year why not close it with two more exceptional picks… Swedeath from Wombbath and Aussiedeath from Hadal Maw. Don’t worry, there’s at least two more worthy of your time below, but I’ll let you figure out which ones for yourself. Happy New Year and stay tuned for more Best Of lists as we uncover more that you missed through 2021.
