Hayduke here. As some of you know, I have a teenage son (one of three kids) who has developed a love of heavy music. This year, he decided to send me a list of his favorites from the year. There’s a bit of overlap with my top 50, but less than you might expect. Without further ado, here is Hayduke Jr’s Top Ten of 2020:


#1: Revolution spring by The Suicide Machines



#2: When I Die, Will I Get Better? by Svalbard



#3: The Suns of Perdition – Chapter II: Render Unto Eden by Panzerfaust



#4: Splid by Kvelertak



 #5: K.G. By King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard



#6: The Negationist by Aeolian



#7: The Funeral Pyre by Kvaen



#8: Strike.Smother.Dehumanize By Revenge 



#9: Gentrified chicken by The Muslims



#10: A Candle In Hell by Lay It On The Line
