Well I didn't make the 15th date, but I'm finally ready to make my list.
I only purchased 13 new albums this year (well at least from Christian artists/bands). So I'm gonna do a top 6.
1. Evans & Stokes - Diary of the Damned (what can I say, I'm a total fanboy of this duo)
2. Warpriest - Warpriest (I'm not a massive doom fan but this was the style I really dig, fantastic release)
3. Messenger - In To Win (wow, massive improvement in production and musicianship from the last studio album)
4. Stryper - Even The Devil Believes (likely their best post-reunion album yet)
5. Wytch Hazel - III: Pentecost (I like this group more and more with each release)
6. Nina Llopis - Unveiled Part 1-2 (surprised I liked this one so much)
Honorable mentions. The Halo demo "Life Goes On" was a fantastic nostalgic trip to the 80's sound. Imagine the first Halo album but with a guitarist heavily influenced by EVH. The recording quality wasn't amazing, but for an 80's demo it was pretty darned good. Also Wasp-76b shocked me. I am not a fan of death or guttural style vocals, but this album surprised me. It is really good and I find myself actually able to understand a lot of the lyrics (especially with repeated listens), another album I am happy to have taken a chance on.
I'm convinced that 2020 was a better year for Christian music releases than the last 3 or even 4 years (at least for this music fan). I am just tickled with pretty much everything I got this year, and I don't even have my copy of the Gale Force album yet.
