Metal Insider’s Matt Brown’s Top 10 Metal Albums of 2019

Posted by on December 18, 2019


01) Idle Hands, Mana (Eisenwald)

No other album this year got as many spins from me as the debut full-length from Idle Hands. This album has one foot in gothic rock and the other in traditional heavy metal with a distinctly 80’s flair. The one-two punch of the driving guitars of “Nightfall” and the endlessly catchy “Jackie” locks you in for a gloomy, infectious, and refreshing record. 

Key Track: “Nightfall”


Honorable Mentions:

Cult of Luna, A Dawn To Fear

King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Infest The Rats’ Nest

Leprous, Pitfalls

Wilderun, Veil of Imagination
