This forum must live! I figure this will get some conversation going here as this place isn't too busy anymore. Anyway! Post your favorite albums from this past year! Top 10, top 5, metal, other genres, anything really. I'll start with my top ten. 10 : Metallica - Hardwired... to Self Destruct 9 : Insomnium - Winter's Gate 8 : Witherscape - The Northern Sanctuary 7 : Testament - The Brotherhood of the Snake 6 : Megadeth - Dystopia 5 : Obscura - Akroasis 4 : Gojira - Magma 3 : Devin Townsend Project - Transcendence 2 : Amon Amarth - Jomsviking 1 : Vektor - Terminal Redux Special mention for my all-time favorite band, Dream Theater's "The Astonishing" for being an astonishing BORING album. Never before have I been so disappointed in an album. Shame on you all for releasing this catastrophe.
