MY TOP HARD ROCK/METAL/GOTH/PUNK/ALT ALBUMS & SINGLES OF 2019



It has been another strong year for Rock/Metal/Alt music, and once again whittling down my favourites to just 30 albums and 40 singles has been a challenge.

I haven't done as many reviews as I'd have liked to this year due to other commitments, but I have listened to a mountain of new records.

As always, I have rules for my end of year lists. Obviously, I don't include anything I played on, as I like to think that I'm not that much of an egotistical dick. Having said that, I'm not opposed to some shameless self-promotion. After all, If I don't give a fuck, who will? Check out the new Lesbian Bed Death album, Born To Die On VHS HERE. I'm sure it's at the top of your 2019 albums list already, right?

Other rules include ONE single or album per artist. Lists with lots of songs by the same band in the top 10 singles are painfully lame. I also omit singles that are from albums or EPs that are due to be released next year (sorry Ozzy). 

Please remember that this is just a list, so there's no need to cry if you disagree with my choices. It's just a bit of fun and also a nice way to reflect on some of the amazing music I've enjoyed this year. Hopefully, you'll discover something new. I also look forward to checking out other people's 2019 lists and seeing if there are any gems that went under my radar.

Anyway, 2019! It has been a pleasure. Oh, and if anyone is feeling nostalgic, here's 2018 and 2017, and 2016.
