    The new year has just begun and I guess we're all looking forward to hearing anything from Pyramaze with Urban on vocals - be it an old or a new song...

    But before we take a look at the future, I'm curious which releases have blown your mind away in 2008?

    My Top 3:
    • PYRAMAZE - Immortal
    • SERENITY - Fallen Sanctuary
    • Amon Amarth - Twilight Of The Thunder God

    I got 'Fallen Sanctuary' as a Christmas present from my honey (she's the best!) and I listen to this album constantly ever since, it's amazing... and these guys are from Austria! :)

    So, now let's also take a closer look at 2009: which possibly/hopefully great albums are going to be released this year?

    My most anticipated album of 2009 is probably the new Bloodbound - will be released in March/April! 'Nosferatu' is awesome, but I don't like 'Book Of The Dead' that much - mainly because of the vocals. But now as Urban is back I guess this album will rule again!

    Extremely easy!

    Scar Symmetry = Holographic Universe
    Serenity - Fallen Sanctuary
    Pyramaze - Immortal
    Iced Earth - The Crucible of Man

    My most anticipated 2009 release at the moment is the Iced Earth - Something Wicked Boxed Set (which will include Barlow rerecording Framing Armageddon, nd the Overture of the Wicked EP for whatever ridiculous reason)

    My favorites from 2008:

    1.Communic - Payment of Existence
    2. Evergrey - Torn
    3. Pyramaze - Immortal
    Amon Amarth - Twilight of the Thunder God
    Brainstorm - Downburst
    Sabaton - The Art of War

    Last 3 are in no particular order.

    Right now I don't know of many 09 albums. I'm waiting for Adagio - Archangels In Black, the 2 songs that have been released sound amazing. Also I'm waiting for Edgend's debut album (they're a kickass prog power band from Israel). From what I've already heard by them that will probably be my favorite this year. I'll definately try the new Bloodbound (although shamefully I have yet to hear any of their albums, just a song or 2).

    Faves of the year...

    Iced Earth - The Crucible Of Man
    Serenity - Fallen Sanctuary
    Pyramaze - Immortal
    Brainstorm - Downburst
    Avantasia - The Scarecrow
    Firewind - The Premonition
    Power Quest - Master Of Illusion
    Kiuas - The New Dark Age
    Metallica – Death Magnetic
    Crystallion - Hattin
    Soulspell – A Legacy Of Honor


    Hornorable mentions go to...

    Seventh Wonder - Mercy Falls (solid, but not nearly as enjoyable as their last album, Waiting In The Wings)
    Almah - Fragile Existence (Angra singer Edu Falaschi's band, much better than the debut...this actually has an Angra-esque sound)


    Disappointments go to...

    Opeth - Watershed (boring)
    Rage - Carved In Stone (the last album, Speak Of The Dead, was brilliant, but this sounds uninspired/stale)


    Looking forward to in 2009...

    Adagio - Archangels In Black
    Dark Moor - Autumnal
    Bloodbound - Tabula Rasa
    ReinXeed - Higher
    Vision Divine - 9 Degrees West Of The Moon
    Wuthering Heights - Salt
    Primal Fear - I6.6
    Fairyland - Score To A New Beginning
    Sirenia - The 13th Floor
    Anthropia - Chain Reaction
    Brainstorm - TBA
    Orphaned Land - The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR (maybe?)
    Wintersun - Time (maybe?)

    ...and many others I'm unaware of at the moment ;)

    Me neither, that was one reason why I asked... to get a glimpse of what's ahead.

    Wuthering Heigths will release a new album? Sounds good, I really dig what I heard of their last albums yet! Also Framing Armageddon with Matt Barlow on vocals sounds great, though I still don't like The Crucible Of Man too much...

    2008 was not an album year.


    1. Amon Amarth - Twilight Of The Thunder God
    2. Pyramaze - Immortal
    3. Arch Enemy - Tyrants Of The Rising Sun (CD & DVD)
    4. Iced Earth - The Crucible Of Man
    5. Stormwarrior - Heading Northe
    6. Dragonforce - Ultra Beatdown
    7. ?
    8. ?
    9. ?
    10.?

    ----

    Disapointments:

    1. In Flames - A Sense Of Purpose (nothing MDM here, pure garbage, i hope that IF will go back to MDM soon..)
    2. Catamenia - VII: The Time Unchained (the clean vocals ruin the album, there's too much of them)
    3. Avantasia The Scarecrow (pure hard rock garbage. Metal operas were great, but this one sucks big time)

    4. maybe the new IE album, it was a small disapointment. After "Framing Armageddon" which was great... But there was also stuff that i liked so... :p

    -----------

    Looking forward: (in no order)

    - Dark Tranquillity - New album
    - Dream Theater - New album
    - Iced Earth - new DVD
    - Arch Enemy - new album
    - Wintersun - Time
    - Summoning - new album
