2021 TOP 20 RETRO ROCK ALBUMS

Updated: Jan 3

Digital Age Rock 'N Roll Heavily Rooted In The Past!


Nothing dated here. Simple greatness that happens to sound as if was written and recorded over 40+ years ago. The palette here is quite impressive, ranging from soft folk-rock to full blast heavy psychedelic madness, these twenty titles are the real deal! The formative, hugely important chapter in rock music history is as farther from being written, as it ever was! So dive in and let your freak flag fly high! You dig?

DUNBARROW

III

Norway


Released on May 28, 2021

Album #3


With each album forward, Dunbarrow rode an elevating trajectory in their quest to conquer the morose shores of Doom! With the arrival of their third full-length studio effort, simply titled "III", the Norwegian rockers reached a milestone in their path: a distinct, signature sound! III is nothing short of epic. For those previously unaware, the new album finds the band heavily rooted in the half-century-old gloomy stoner rock, which not coincidentally helped crown Black Sabbath as pioneers of heavy metal. Dunbarrow's new album centers around a genuinely vintage proto-doom appeal, adding epic elements along the way. The result is a melodic yet dark body of music, championing its own beautifully unique identity. Retro Rock Album of the Year!
