"The Day That Never Comes" was decent except the vocals, but still not better than the best songs on Load to me. Nevermore must make a new album soon for my untr00 metal needs!

Wow I just checked out God is an Astronaut and am blown away. I love post rock but somehow I've heard of them but never took the time to listen to them Thanks for reminding me to, its great shit! I really need some new music I've been listening to the same shit for a long time now. Maybe some of you can check out my last fm and tell me some recommendations?

Glad you like God Is An Astronaut. If you like post-rock, you might want to check out the American Dollar. They released their third album, A Memory Stream, this year. Also recommended are their first two albums: The American Dollar and The Technicolour Sleep (my personal favorite). Also, check out Hammock's Raising Your Voice... Trying To Stop An Echo -- it's truly a phenomenal album.

I thought their last album was horrid, but the new one is probably just as good as DAHE and CATB..with the exception of 2 songs which I'm still not sure about yet. The album is also inspired by CATB btw..only that I feel it sounds more like DAHE if anything. So, you should check it out before you hate it too much. Sweetest Maleficia is a good song to start with.

well the year is just about done so i guess my final list of 08.

1. The Grates - Teeth Lost, Hearts Won.
2. Mehuggah - obZen
3. Protest The Hero - Fortress
4. The Haunted - Versus
5. Cynic - Traced in Air
6. M83 - Saturdays=Youth
7. Nine Inch Nails - Ghosts I-IV
8. Russian Circles - Station
9. Opeth - Watershed
10. Agalloch - The White (EP)

really hard to list those in a top 10 but i guess that works.
Love the shit out of that Grates record. its puts a smile on your face.
The meshuggah, Protest and Haunted records are all interchangeable i guess. they are all extremely solid releases from great bands.
I only heard this new cynic record recently and was just blown away. the only negative is its so short.
M83s album still holds up well and is just full of 80s energy.
Ghosts was the better NIN release this year. it just covers so much ground with its 36 instrumentals.
great steps forward for Russian circles and opeth.
The white EP is such an amazing folk infused creation. powerful atmosphere.

there was some other good releases but i felt they were just missing something. such as.

Steven Wilson - Insurgentes
Bloodbath - The Fathomless Mastery
Boris - Smile
Gojira - The Way of All Flesh
Mogwai - The Hawk is Howling
Textures - Silhouettes
etc.

i think that's about it. on to 09.

For me 10 is a stretch, I might get a bunch, but I won't listen to them much after the first spin, I usually keep the same songs playing for months/years at a time.
