Adam McGrath has had a busy year, releasing the new Cave In album Final Transmission (featuring the final recordings by the late Caleb Scofield), the new album Unriddled by his side project Nomad Stones, and the new album by J Bannon’s Wear Your Wounds, Rust On the Gates of Heaven. Cave In also toured this year, and they’ve got one more show before the year ends: Every Time I Die’s holiday show in Buffalo.

As the year comes to a close, we asked Adam what his ten favorite albums of 2019 were, and he sent a list that includes his Cave In bandmate Stephen Brodsky‘s collaborative album with Marissa Nadler, plus Torche, Tool, Nick Cave, Darkthrone, Helms Alee, and more. Check out his full list below.

Also, watch this recent live video of Cave In (with Nate Newton of Converge on bass) playing “Big Riff” off Cave In’s classic 2000 album Jupiter:
