ninehertz Top 50 Albums of 2023

Fri 15th December 2023


/incoming/9hzlogaoty.jpgWelcome to the ninehertz album of the year list for 2023!

Below is the combined top 50 releases of the year chosen by Mike and myself (Pete), representing those records that shone the brightest. The vast majority featured on our podcast, the new release show clocking up more than 40 episodes and showcasing hundreds of new songs.

It came to my attention that an article I wrote turned 10 this month - Doom Britannica, a charting of the rise of the doom underground in the British Isles. It is interesting to consider what has happened since - I'd suggest that whilst there has been no major international breakthrough, the scene has solidified into something that has consistent quality - and that the best proof is the list below, which showcases stunning albums from bands from these shores that are as good (and varied and innovative) as anywhere in the world.
