    I haven't heard many of this year's releases, but here are my choices:


    Vintersorg - The Focusing Blur (best one I've heard of this year)

    Still to hear: Borknagar, Suffocation, Deicide, Cannibal Corpse, Mayhem, Therion, Dark Sanctuary, Mustan Kunn Lappset, Xasthur, Skymning and April Ethereal

    Looking Foward to: Darkthrone, Mercury Rain, Sear Bliss, Red Harvest, Rotting Christ, Immolation, Death Du Jour, Enochian Crescent (hey it might happen... maybe), Bloodbath, The Haunted, Arcturus, Amon Amarath, Cradle of Filth and Strommoussheld

    2004's been great so far, some excelent underground releases (anyone who enjoyed the more recent Enslaved albums should get hold of Emancer's new album), and of course MDB released and album.

    Apparently so. It's not a masterpiece or anything (it doesn't even come close to Turn Loose the Swans), but it's not "a load of shit" either.

    On a slightly related note, am I the only one who thinks Anathema's latest is a load of shit?

    I think that Anathema's latest is great :D And the Mar de Grises album is really great. He sings in both Spanish and English and it works out great. :headbang: :worship:

    you're right. new bride is loads of shite.:puke:
    why don't they go away?

    a natural disaster is a great album. not a masterpiece maybe, but trillion zillion times better than the last 3 bride albums. or maybe better than anything bride has done.

    I think the songwriting is horrible, the atmosphere is great but the songs = weak

    for me the last Orphaned Land (Mabool) is the best album of 2004, along with the last Anathema (A Natural Disaster).

    give Orphaned Land a try guys, you won't regret it ;)

    The new Skyclad is excellent, I pretty much gave up on them when Martin Walkyier left, but I was pleasantly surprised. Kevin Ridley's vocals lack the edge that Walkyier had and the lyrics are somewhat weaker, but a great release nonetheless, a strong contender for the album of the year in my opinion.

    orphaned land is boring as shit. the acoustic/etno parts are ok, but when the distortions get in..... BOOO-RRIIING...... if they'd have done it in 1998 instead of 2004, maybe it would matter

    new dillinger is very very good, but neurosis and meshuggah ep are better.

    It is pure crap, I don't care what kind of metal you want to call it...Dave Mustaine is still crying because he got kicked out of Metallica..he is a little bitch!
