    As the very literal thread title may indicate, I am interested in knowing what are considered some of the best albums of the last few years. I have been nearly completely disconnected from any sort of Metal news or releases since about 2010 and am looking to catch up. I only want top tier shit. Above average. I don't get nearly as much quality listening time as I used to and I don't want to waste time with "ok" albums.

    I don’t know what you like so I’m just going to list what pops in my head

    Eluveitie - Helvetios

    Katatonia - Dead End Kings

    Katatonia - Night is the New Day

    Amorphis – The Beginning of Times

    Cannibal Corpse – Torture

    Borknagar – Urd

    Nachtmystium – Silencing Machine

    Anathema –Weather Systems (not really metal, but still really good)

    Ihsahn – Eremita

    Woods of Ypres – Woods 5: Grey Skies & Electric Light

    Swallow the Sun – New Moon (can’t recall if this is 3 years old or older. But it’s sweet)

    There is more, but I need to look through my collection to remember them all.

    Ignore the first response, and if I remember you right, the 2nd post might not be your thing, but hey Eligos seems to have discerning tastes.

    Make sure you have these at the least:

    2011:
    Bahimiron - Rebel Hymns Of Left Handed Terror
    Blaspherian - Infernal Warriors Of Death

    2012:
    Beherit - Celebrate The Dead
    Demoncy - Enthroned Is The Night
    Graveland - Memory And Destiny (Re-Recorded)

    2013:
    Sacriphyx - Sacriphyx
    Sacriphyx - The Western Front

    Hasn't been a great time for metal really, but 2013 is looking incredible. Fanisk's release was good if you like them, I just could never quite call them essential to my tastes. Portal's new release was ok I guess. But some of the shit coming out (Birth A.D., Imprecation, Summoning, Divine Eve, etc.) is bound to be great.

    Good to see Sacriphyx getting some love on here,that's about the best shit i've come across in the last few years.
    Actually now is the perfect time to get into this band as their few demos/splits have appeared very rarely since 2007 and only just now has a compilation cd and their debut appeared.

    Good thread, my friend. :wave: As someone who has also been out of the loop for the last few years, hopefully this thread is helpful.

    Agree with Ihsahn's Eremita (even better is "After" going back to 2010) and Anathema and would have to add:

    Enslaved - RIITIR
    Leprous - Bilateral
    Mastodon - The Hunter
    Shining - Redefining Darkness

    Considering that The Hunter is comprised entirely of B-sides from Crack the Sky it hardly qualifies as a "great" album, but it is a decent pop record.

    I don't think that at all - the music is totally different to Crack the Skye, which was more epic and progressive-influenced, whereas The Hunter is more groove-oriented with some pop-type riffs and catchy choruses. Very different - where'd you hear the "B-side from CtS" reference?

    Admittedly CtK is better but personally I think The Hunter's a great collection of songs, better than most of the other crap out there in the last few years.

    I just did a quick google search and it seems that I might have actually taken the figure of speech that I was reading in numerous reviews as truth :lol:

    ... but that is truly what I think of the record.

    Not sure what kind of metal you listen to, but these are the only two metal albums I've given 10s to in the last three years.

    Agalloch- Marrow of the Spirit
    Deathspell Omega- Peracletus

    I plan on picking up Ihsahn’s “After” this week. I’ve heard it’s a great album. What say you?

    It's fucking Paracletus but it's definitely worth listing.
