Over the last year, I’ve reviewed a fair few albums for my pals at Ever Metal, and also continued on my never ending odyssey to explore new music. Old bands, new bands, from the big hitters to the up and comers. But what Rock and Metal albums were my favourites from 2021?
This list answers that question: here are the albums that I enjoyed the most from last year:
10. Stoner – Stoners Rule
9. Here Lies Man – “Ritual Divination”
8. Bloody Hammers – “Songs of Unspeakable Terror”
7. Melvins – “Working with God”
6. Acid Mammoth – “Caravan”
5. Barbarian Hermit – “One”
4. Red Fang – “Arrows”
3. Son of Boar – “Son of Boar”
2. Green Lung – “Black Harvest”
- 1968 – “Salvation, if you need…”
Another strong year for new music, 2021 managed to deliver that much, at least. There were plenty of other great releases from other artists, this is just my pick of the best – and it certainly wasn’t easy to narrow down to just this ten.
All of the above are superb records, and I’d strongly advise you to check them out. Read the full reviews on Ever Metal (where applicable) and also on here too, in the near future.
Let’s raise a glass to more great music in 2022 – and who knows, maybe some more gigs?!
