    Well Borknagars Epic never managed to surface THIS year, so it will have to wait until next year to get listed.

    The best ones this year i would say is (in no particular order)

    Deströyer 666 - Defiance (a true masterpiece)
    Code - Resplendant Grotesque (one of the few interesting black metal-
    releases this year)
    Slayer - Hate Worldwide (.. the best one since God Hates Us All or maybe
    Reign in Blood)
    Megadeth - Endgame (bonecrushing)
    Immortal - All Shall Fall (not as strong as one had hoped for, but still very
    good, Mount North!!!!)
    Dream Theater - Dark Clouds & Silver Linings (I've lost interest in these guys already in the middle of the 90's, but this album is the true follow up to
    Images & Words)
    Devin Townsend Project - Addicted (this is how pop-metal should sound)
    Nile - Those Whom The Gods Detest (first album i actually liked from these
    guys)

    Did i forget any great releases?

    I completely agree with devin townsends "addicted" far better than the more experimental "ki".

    my votes aren't worth a ton due to not listening to too much new music, i spend alot of time filling out my collection with stuff that i missed from previous years, but the other albums i've enjoyed a ton this year are God Forbids Earthsblood, and Hypocrisys new one.
