Outlaws Of The Sun - Top 30 Records Of 2021

So another year has ended and I would rank 2021 as a pretty great year for new albums being released and musical discoveries. Sure COVID-19 has made things extra hard but the music saved my sanity on more than one occasion and doing the blog helped as well.

Here's my list of the best 30 Albums of 2021. 

I want to dedicate this list to one of my closest friends and biggest supporters from the scene Michael William Petry who sadly passed away earlier this year. You'll be missed mate.

I want to thank you all for reading the blog on a daily basis and letting me air my views on releases within the world of Doom, Sludge and Stoner Metal.

Huge Thanks to Frazer Jones at Desert Psychlist for his never-ending support and words of encouragement. Matthew Thomas for having my back throughout the year. 

Same goes to Gizmo, Michael William Petry, Edd JR Saylor, Todd Stealey, Håkan Nyman, Marty Harvey, Sue Wright, Steve Rodger, James Marshall, Bill Goodman for their support as well.

I must also give a shout out to the Bands, Labels and PR Reps who helped me be aware of albums or bands that I may have missed.
