    Thrash had its run, just accept it.

    I used to listen a lot of thrash until early 90's. Even if my preferences went in other directions, I still was updated with what was released and man, thrash went to the toilet. Around mid 00's there were serious efforts to resurrect it, but thrash never reached the levels that it had on the 80's until very early 90's. Not even close and you know it.

    From my perspective, death and black metal have been the most consistently good metal styles since early 90's. Every year there are a decent amount of great death and/or black metal albums. Thrashers can't say the same.

    And from my perspective that is a stupid and naive comment that makes you look like a dumb cunt. But each to their own I suppose.

    Funny, I started listening to this album today not even thinking that it was relevant to the current poll. I think I'm on my fourth or fifth spin now, it fucking owns.

    Finally, I've been waiting for a chance to overrate the shit out of this dumb ass album.

    Epic year. Metal going mainstream brought in a lot of great ideas from the wider world of music. A lot of shitty ideas too, but overall it was a real gift to be able to tap that vast mindshare for a while.

    2. Rammstein - Mutter
    3. Cathedral - Endtyme
    4. Tool - Lateralus
    5. Cradle of Filth - Bitter Suites to Succubi
    6. Bathory - Destroyer of Worlds
    7. Benediction - Organised Chaos
    8. Therion - Secret of the Runes
    9. Dimmu Borgir - Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia
    10. Sonata Arctica - Silence

    1. Mordeth - Animicide
    2. Bolt Thrower - Honour · Valour · Pride
    3. Psycroptic - The Isle of Disenchantment
    4. Cause for Effect - PQ-2
    5. Vuvr - Pilgrimage
    6. Thorns - Thorns
    7. Gorguts - From Wisdom to Hate
    8. The Chasm - Reaching the Veil of Death
    9. Funebrarum - Beneath the Columns of Abandoned Gods
    10. Deteriorot - In Ancient Beliefs

    11. Absu - Tara
    12. Hammers of Misfortune - The Bastard: A Tale Told in Three Acts
    13. Darkthrone - Plaguewielder
    14. Manilla Road - Atlantis Rising
    15. Repugnant - Draped in Cerecloth
    16. Deeds of Flesh - Mark of the Legion
    17. Suicidal Winds - Victims in Blood
    18. Apokalyptic Raids - Only Death Is Real...
    19. Ingrowing - Suicide Binary Reflections
    20. Abigail - Welcome All Hell Fuckers

    Animicide was actually supposed to come out around 1997/98 but the band split up in 1997 right after recording it was finished and its release was delayed until 2001. Voïvod-influenced progressive death metal band from Brazil that somehow manages to be alien and technical but also primitive. I've only heard two tracks from the new Blood Incantation album but I definitely see a connection between the 2 bands, likely unintentional though. Criminally underrated IMO and defying the stereotype of what Brazilian underground metal is/should be still to this day.



    They even wrote a song inspired by 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    I'll need to hear that Mordeth album. I've heard all their demos which I more or less enjoy but never went past those.

    I don't know which clown is responsible for tagging this album as a 2001-release. It was definitely released in 2000. I bought my copy in June 2000 and saw Nightwish on tour promoting this album 4 months later.

    Looks like I'll have to skip this round. I've got one single album from 2001, which is Madder Mortem's "All Flesh Is Grass".

    Yeah it was released in May 2000, and this issue does appear on RateYourMusic. Unfortunately whoever added it to the site initially used the 2001 re-issue as the "primary" issue so it shows as being released in 2001. They cannot fix it on the current version of the website. But if you look at the corrections queue it is flagged to be fixed in RYM 2.0 / Sonemic.

    After re-listening to the Thorns album I decided it was mandatory to include it in my list.

    @Einherjar86 any chance you have a list for 2001? Some great power metal albums from Lost Horizon, Domine, Twisted Tower Dire, Freedom Call, Rhapsody, Adagio, Dark Moor etc.

    Oh shit, thanks for tagging me! There's actually a lot I dig from this year, although a lot of the power metal comes second to black/folk metal releases. Subject to change, but for now this is my order:

    1. Ancient Rites - Dim Carcosa (I fucking love this album, never been a huge fan of their others)
    2. Windir - 1184
    3. Summoning - Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame
    4. Hollenthon - With Vilest of Worms to Dwell
    5. Borknagar - Empiricism
    6. Kamelot - Karma
    7. Falconer - s/t
    8. Freedom Call - Crystal Empire
    9. Human Fortress - Lord of Earth and Heaven's Heir
    10. Therion - Secret of the Runes

    Still looking through the lists, so I might switch a few; but if not, I think this stands.

    Last.fm says I started listening to them at the time the GMD Poll for '96 was posted. I browsed RYM for that year and of course their name really stands out.
