Monthly Album Roundup – October 2020

Welcome to the Decibel Boost Podcast album roundup for the month of October 2020. Whether through sheer coincidence or everyone rushing to get one last spot at those year-end best-of lists, this past month decided to be one of those ones where everything came out from everywhere in a concentrated span of time. Those are always fun, right? First up, Alex discusses Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor’s solo debut, Ariana Grande’s newest full-length album, the latest side project from the camp of Periphery, and both a new Devin Townsend live album as well as Linkin Park’s 20th anniversary reissue of their seminal modern classic Hybrid Theory. Next, Mark discusses Griselda offerings from both Benny The Butcher and Westside Gunn, clipping’s direct sequel to one of 2019’s best rap albums, Oneohtrix Point Never’s dive into nostalgic FM radio vibes, and the newest project from Gorillaz among others. Finally, Robert offers praise for the newest releases from Open Mike Eagle, Zeal & Ardor, Greg Puciato, HEALTH, and even Emma Ruth Rundle & Thou… before delving into his first proper experience with one of the biggest laughingstocks in the history of death metal.
