    Nearing the end of the year and I reckon it's about time we made our lists. I'd be interested to see what you guys thought the 10 best albums were this year.

    1. Insomnium - Above the Weeping World (and pretty much every other album this year by far!)
    2. Envy - Insomniac doze
    3. Decapitated - Organic Hallucinosis
    4. Mercenary - The Hours That Remain (so underated)
    5. Ihsahn - The Adversary
    6. Mastodon - Blood Mountain
    7. All Shall Perish - The Price of Existence
    8. Converge - No Heroes
    9. Amon Amarth - With Oden on Our Side
    10. To-mera - Transcendetal


    This year had no Godless Endeavor, Character or Annhilation of the wicked, but constant and great releases did spew forth from all directions of the globe. We did have offerings from some classic deathmetal bands, but however good they were (stench of redemption, Kill, Suffocation) they weren't list worthy in my eyes.

    1. Keep of Kalessin - Armada
    2. Mastodon - Blood Mountain
    3. Satyricon - Now, Diabolical
    4. Moonspell - Memorial
    5. Gadget - The Funeral March
    6. Vader - Impressions in Blood
    7. My Dying Bride - The Line of Deathless Kings
    8. Cradle of Filth - Thornography (yeah, yeah, I know, but theyve got Ville, so go fuck yourselves :D - this record is really well done, and the lyrics are superb).

    Thats all for now, Ill think of the two remaining later.

    RHCP - Stadium Arcadium

    close follow-ups
    In Flames - Come Clarity
    Iron Maiden - A Matter of Life and Death
    MUSE - Black Holes and Revelations
    My Chemical Romance - Welcome to the Black Parade


    Mastodon was getting quite some coverage in the press, but I never liked them so much... should go back may be. Same for Lamb of God, Stone Sour... and Evanescence (even though they rocked the charts, I don't fucking care at all - one good song a record doesn't make it up for all the fuss).

    Disappointment of thh year: new Killswitch Engage. Papa Roach was weaker than ever.

    And I think lostprophets blew it with their new album, which I had hopes for :(

    Waiting for: new Incubus.

    Never liked them to begin with. They're the only band I've ever seen over 3/4 of a crowd walk out on. (At the DT show in NJ in '02 - didn't walk out for good, just until IF came on after them, then everyone walked back in.) It didn't help that they thought the coolest thing in the world was starting every song with horrible feedback.

    I forgot katatonia from my list. It should probably be in there somewhere. There's alot of bands too numerous to mention, and I keep forgetting them too. My honourable mentions go out to Sikth -death of a dead day and Kalmah too.

    @Plinny: :lol:... Joking right? Just making sure. :)

    I actually forgot to mention Taking Back Sunday :D

    Nah, it's kinda my hit-parade or something - I don't follow metal scene, I track what I like or being fed from the media (for the record - I don't watch TV, it finds it's ways). Well, except a few bands I follow for about a decade now.

    Stadium Arcadium is THE album.

    @Plinny... Yeah, stadium arcadium is a bit special. When I devise my lists I always try really hard to be as objective as possible too. But it's hard with so many genres out there.

    06. Muse - Black Holes and Revelations
    07. Iron Maiden - A Matter of Life and Death

    Katatonia - Cold white light.
    Other than that I think it's been a VERY VERY poor year for music.
