List season. It’s like Christmas every day of December and some of January where we get to regale the best metal that 2021 had to offer. It’s a time to catch up and find things you slept on or had no idea came out but also a time to raise hell over picks and placements, ahhh good times. Buke wrangled Ian, Vince, Hera, and Angela to discuss their individual top three of 2021, picks of albums that were not in their top three but close, favorite song of the year, and biggest disappointments of the year. Spoiler alert: Rivers of Nihil’s The Work was unanimously discussed here. They also cover the post Christmas spirit, coffee and coffee kettles, covid and awaiting tests, Yules in lieu of trad Christmas because Halloween is better, rainbow Christmas trees, our All In Nine Circles Best of 2021 list, how Buke has yet to grasp Jane Doe, and so much more.
So grab a seat and at least one (or six) adult beverage(s), ’cause this is a long one. Enjoy!
Big thank you’s are in order to our excellent staff, PR folk, bands, labels, and our dear listeners and readers for a HUGE 2021! Keep an eye out for a few more Best Of 2021 lists to come, I assure you there are several you’ll want to take note of. See you in 2022, cheers.
