Best Music Of 2019

Best Music Of 2019

As is customary each year, music magazines across the globe gather around and form an arbitrary ranking of the best music released that year.

So here at Rockfreaks.net we have always taken a different approach: we think it's far more important to try to capture all relevant albums from a given year of release that will have some significance a few years down the line...

Among the new additions is the Mongolian ‘hunnu rock’ sensation The Hu, whose showmanship and mix of traditional and modern instruments made quite the impression on our writer RUB when they played live in his hometown Århus earlier this month.


The band will be joined by the Icelandic black metal conjurers of Svartidauði, who are continuing to promote their 2018 album “Revelations of the Red Sword”.


Within the extreme metal spectrum also, the domestic group Denial Of God will also make an appearance, bringing with an assortment of new material from their 2019 album “The Hallow Mass”.
