Best Metal Albums of 2020

Similarly like mentioned in the best metal songs list of this year, since some debates on what is and isn't metal are expected here alike most metal lists, ultimately the debates have mostly been inconclusive, opinionated and hence subjective. Due to its subjective nature, albums of questionable genres like Alternative Metal, Nu-Metal, Metalcore, Deathcore etc are allowed here for now. If you don't consider them metal, don't vote for it. Vote for something that you consider metal, instead of voting on a non-metal item just to complain about it's "non-metalness". Keep in mind, this is not at all a validation for someone to submit a Pop album here for example.
