Last year, I did articles about death metal and doom metal from 2019. Many people read them so I decided to make some more articles for 2020. This is my list of quality black metal from 2020. I will include everything from traditional black metal to atmospheric black metal and blackgaze, as long as it’s from 2020.

Upcoming black metal albums from 2020

Obsidian Tongue – Volume III (21 January, United States)
U.S. atmospheric black metal band Obsidian Tongue is one of the first black metal bands with a new album out in 2020. Connections to Woods of Ypres, Fall of Rauros and Panopticon might make it an interesting one.
