    So after the other topic asking what your favourite album released this year is, what's your favourite album that you've gotten into this year that's not necessarily from this year?

    For me, it's easily my newfound appreciation for Tech Death and Drone.
    Cryptopsy - None So Vile + Once Was Not
    Gorguts - Obscura + From Wisdom To Hate
    Sunn O))) - Monoliths and Dimensions

    these albums sum up my year in music I think \m/

    HOW BOUT YOU GUIZ?

    For me -

    Decapitated - Winds Of Creation
    Suicide Silence - The Cleansing
    Hatebreed - The Rise Of Brutality

    I love that Hatebreed album! I always ignored them because a few people called them "metalcore" but I love them now!

    God damn, I just realised I haven't had any in the last year or so. The closest that come to mind are Nerina Pallot, though it's just her live performances and not the albums, which lack the same feel, and Addicted, but that one wasn't a real discovery either.

    Whoa, I had only heard Devour and Second Chance since they were on repeat on the radio in the summer, but damn, this album actually seems pretty interesting! Thanks for the heads-up! :)

    Dysrhythmia, Keelhaul, Elbow.

    I'm not in the crowd of liking an album based on who produced/mixed it though - the production needs to fit the music for me. Nickelback, Creed, Paramore - all gaaay bands (come one - I'm pretty sure their wikipedia pages are locked due to the abuse they get on there) with savagely produced albums. Doesn't stand up to ...And Justice For All, though. That is my single favourite produced album ever. The vibe of the music is anarchic, angry, betrayed, unjust. Soooo, lets have a clicky kick, dead and dry toms/snare, ultra scooped and overgained guitars with a funny sizzle going on, NO bass, angry shouty vocals. Its fucking perfect. The fact it was produced so badly is why it fits their mindset and music at the time.

    I don't mean to say people shouldn't like those bands because their albums are produced so well - just that what really gets me is when the production fits the music so naturally, as if it wasn't intended. Nickelback, Creed and Paramore are just, to my ears, 3 examples of very contrived music with massive production, then forced on to the market with the unstoppable force of their huge label. Rant over!

    So yeh - Dysrhythmia, Keelhaul and Elbow got it bang on to my ears. Pretty sure anyone would appreciate the production on the Elbow record though - 'The Seldom Seen Kid' for anyone interested in that album. Produced by their keyboard player.

    Mostly the faster kind of drum & bass, since I began to like the genre this year very much:

    Black Sun Empire - Driving Insane
    Dieselboy - Substance D
    Pendulum - Hold Your Colour

    And also re-discovered some "lost" albums from my favourite artists:

    Black Sabbath - Cross Purposes
    Edge of Sanity - Crimson II
    Front Line Assembly - Re-Wind
    Katatonia - Tonight's Decision

    And finally, I continued listening to last year's excellent releases:

    Darkspace - Dark Space III
    Gojira - The Way of All Flesh
    Opeth - Watershed
    The Amenta - n0n

    It's an awesome album to walk with, too :) -25 C or lower, pitchblack darkness, and a brisk wind, while you walk for 1,5 hours outdoors. It's simply awesome! Darkspace's album works nicely for that, too.
