Best of 2021: Albums (40-21)

We are approaching the climax of our Best of series. Today we present you the first part of our Top 40 lists in the category “Album”. Every record you find in this list gets an unrestricted buy recommendation from us, of course. In our opinion 2021 was a strong metal year – that’s why many releases we really like didn’t make it into the Top 40 at all. Well, those are luxury worries, aren’t they?
