Monthly Album Roundup – January 2020

Welcome to the Decibel Boost Podcast album roundup for the month of January 2020. The first month of the first year of the decade is a great chance for the industry to set a tone for the months and even years to follow… but mostly this past January just seemed to drop a small handful of releases of note, presumably saving some of its cards for later. There were still some projects here and there worth discussing. First off: Alex goes into detail on new projects from Apocalyptica, Survive Said The Prophet, and delivers a verbal evisceration of the new Theory of a Deadman project. Next: Mark discusses new releases from The Professionals, 070 Shake, the late Mac Miller, and deals with yet another unexpected interruption from Eminem. Finally: Robert offers his praises of the newest albums from Dan Deacon, Nero Di Marte, and Algiers… before dealing with the clunky mess that is Poppy’s transition into metal.
