Pitchfork’s top 25 metal albums of 2015 unveiled

Posted by on December 21, 2015

By now, you could probably make a top ten list of the Top 10 lists out there. Hopefully, you’er not too fatigued by it, because Pitchfork has come out with their list of the top 25 albums of 2015. If you’re thinking what Pitchfork’s readership and sensibility is, you’ve probably already figured out that their top album of the year is Deafheaven’s New Bermuda. Yet as the site’s metal coverage has been pretty all-encompassing this year, so too is their list. There’s the “hipster metal” (which let’s agree is a useless term at this point), like their #1 album, Myrkur and Baroness, but also records like Pinkish Black, Kowloon Walled City and Khemmis that didn’t wind up on many other lists. You can check out the list, with their explanations as to why the albums were worthy, here.
