    What are some of your top albums for 2015 everyone?

    Man I am never good at remembering what I got in a given year! Some that will appear on mine for sure are:

    Ghost - Meliora
    Eclipse - Armageddonize
    Braindance - Master of Disguise
    Symphony X - Underworld
    Magnus Karlsson's Freefall - Kingdom of Rock
    Praying Mantis - Legacy
    Kamelot - Haven
    Joel Hoekstra's 13 - Dying to Live
    Gloryhammer - Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards
    Riverside - Love, Fear An The Time Machine
    Wulfhook - The Impaler

    Special mentions:

    Queensryche - Condition Human (cool album, liked it a lot, but not more than the other 10)
    The Darkness - Last of Our Kind (if the whole album were as good as the first three songs, it would have been in my top 5)

    A band I discovered this year but this was a 2014 release:

    Perturbator - Dangerous Days (Dark Synth - like 80s thriller/horror soundtrack stuff)

    I haven't been trying out many new releases this year, as movies continue to replace music as my main hobby. Whatever top list I make, it's going to be a list of all albums that I've listened to at all...

    1. Miami Horror - All Possible Futures (Really amazing ethereal stuff. And quite a breakthrough that a non-metal or non-rock album takes the top spot... 8,0/10)
    2. Symphony X - Underworld (lovely album. 7,0/10)
    3. De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig - Manon (Another cool non-metal/rock album. It's Dutch electronic/synth hiphop stuff, and it's super fun. Got old quite fast though 6,8/10)
    4. Iron Maiden - The Book of Souls (nothing mindblowing, but solid and quite nostalgic in places. 6,5/10)
    5. Nightwish - Endless Forms Most Beautiful (surprisingly not a complete disaster. 5,5/10)

    Gloryhammer - Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards (I have to give this more spins for a score, but it sounds fun at least)
    Avantasia - The Mystery of Time (So boring I didn't get past a single listen. Maybe I missed out on something but I doubt it)

    I don't even know where to look for albums to complement this piss poor top list. What a year. :/
