Top Melodic Death/Doom Metal releases of 2021

Being one of our favorite genres, we are quite picky as to which releases make our list. During 2021 we had some solid contributors that pushed the genre in new directions while retaining melancholic supperiority:

Honorable Mention: The Nightly Disease - Delicate White Sound (2021)

One-man outfit brilliantly combines instrumental passages with monumental atmospheric Doom elements

5. Seeming Emptiness - Bliss Entombed (2021)

Featuring members of In Mourning/October Tide, this release brilliantly delivers waves of melancholy and superbly catchy guitar work

4. Solitude - Exogenesis (2021)

Hailing from Mexico, this outfit keeps the old In Flames, Dark Tranquility, etc. Melodic Death Metal vibe alive with their crafty music

3. Be'lakor - Coherence (2021)

As one of the most anticipated releases of 2021, "Coherence" delivers plenty of high-octane Melodic Death Metal acrobatics, the way only Be'lakor can carefully craft

2. Hanging Garden - Skeleton Lake (2021)

Hanging Garden has constantly evolved over the years and with "Skeleton Lake" the band delives waves of melodic misery alongside crafty vocal arrangements

1. Marianas Rest - Fata Morgana (2021)

Combining the incisive execution of bands like Insomnium and Omnium Gatherum with a hefty dose of doom and gloom, this release tops our list thanks to its piercing songs and flawless execution
