Well, it’s December again. Time to make up our lists. Like you’re used to by now, you’ll get two lists from Folk-metal.nl. One with the best album of 2019 en one with the best debut-album of 2019.
Last year Zmey Gorynich with ‘Mother Russia’ was chosen best debut-album by our team.
This year four or our teammembers could find the time to rate the debut-albums. Each member rates all debut-albums we reviewed this year. While the rating in a review is ‘just the opinion’ of a single Folk-metal.nl teammember, it’s more than possible an album which received a lower rating ends up with a position higher then an album with a high rating.
And our opinions have never been so different as this year. You will announce a band on this list each day for ten days, to end up with our Number 1! After that we will continue with our album of the year. And don’t worry, there are album to be released this year, but we have already listened to the most of them.
Remarkable list from the beginning at the 10th place we find an album, which was chosen the best one by one of the four voting members.
10. Bergatagen – ‘Bärsärkatoner’
Bergatagen has conquered the 10th place in our list this year. They gained 12 points, remarkable because one of the four voters chose this one as his Debut-album of the year.
“Tons of blast beats and just strangeness from beginning to end. This might be a little extreme for most but if you’ve plateaued out at Trollfest or Svartby, this would be the next logical step I would think. Guess what? If you don’t dig it, that’s OK cuz I will listen to this album probably a 1000 times this year….. and I already have it sitting atop the throne on my debut of the year mountain right now until someone knocks it down….. good luck. Great album.”
