Best of 2019

Death metal dominated this year after black was on top for so long. Stellar quality across the board though. I didn’t make it to as many shows as I would have liked, but I did get to see current titans Tomb Mold and Khemmis, so can’t complaint too much. Psycho and Decibel Metal and Beer and Migration next year? Whos with me?
