best metal albums from 2024 and other great new music

This is my list of the best metal albums of 2024, and also a schedule of upcoming interesting releases. Since I’ve failed keeping up my specific lists for death metal, doom metal and other genres, I’ll just do one big music list this year. I’ll simply do my best to share the best metal albums of 2024, but also other cool stuff I run into. The truth is that I simply don’t listen to enough death metal, black metal and other extreme metal to keep up with the releases and rank them, so I believe this will be better.

Best metal albums of 2024

Once albums start getting released, I’ll rank my best metal albums of 2024 right here!

  1. Hauntologist – Hollow (black metal, Poland)

Upcoming 2024 albums

Blood Red Throne – Nonagon (26 January)

Anyone following my content knows how much I love this Norwegian death metal band, especially live. So I’m definitely happy to get yet another riff-filled album in 2024.

Exocrine – Legend (January 26th)

The French metal scene have been delivering hard the last few years, so why not check out some 2023 death metal from there as well?

Manticora – Mycelium (January 26th)

Great albums on the aggressive side of the progressive power metal spectrum doesn’t exactly grow on trees, but I love when they appear. Manticora’s 2018 album rocked pretty hard, so I’ll surely check out what the bands has to offer in 2023.

Chelsea Wolfe – She Reaches Out to She Reaches Out to She (9 February)

Judging by the excellent first single from this album, Chelsea Wolfe keeps successfully doing the style-chameleon type things she’s been doing over the last few releases. Really looking forward to this one!

Counting Hours – The Wishing Tomb (23 February)

I loved the debut album from this band, so I’m really looking forward to a second release in 2024. If single “Timeless Ones” is any indication, this will be another great one! Except top notch Finnish melodic death/doom.
