    Fyi: for some reason The Turns by Gods Tower is included as a 1998 release but it came out in 1997.

    Edit: and it got The Eerie wrong also.

    Runemagick and Aeternus are both on my radar since they both have 1998 songs on the current round of the mixtape. Those are two albums I need to hearken to for this poll.

    You're probably right. I haven't seen a year like this afterwards where there were this many truly excellent releases.

    This year is huge. I made a list of everything I need to consider for the top 10 and it's bigger than any such list I've made for a previous year. So much genre diversity too, it's not all death/black like many other 90s years.

    can I have an extra month

    If @Dak does this I have a feeling Mercenary will hold the top spot on his list.

    So far I've not had a year where there wasn't good genre diversity, looking back over my 90's year lists now (I keep them listed on my profile for easy reference) and there's a ton of doom, power metal, death metal, some grindcore, some trad/epic.

    When I was making my list I noticed RYM had made a few year mistakes and now I'm seeing some in other people's lists:

    1997 apparently.

    And this one is from what I can see actually 1999.

    Another RYM mistake, this is apparently from 1997.
