    I know this isn't directly related to EToS (though, of course, has the potential to be) so, simply, what's your 2009 list shaping up to be so far? As for mine ...

    01. Eternal Tears Of Sorrow - Children Of The Dark Waters
    02. Amorphis - Skyforger
    03. Stratovarius - Polaris
    04. Celesty - Vendetta
    05. Fairyland - Score To A New Beginning

    01. Eternal Tears of Sorrow - Children of the Dark Waters
    02. Blackguard - Profugus Mortis
    03. Exivious - Exivious
    04. Eminem - Relapse
    05. Wolves in the Throne Room - Black Cascade

    Though I have a feeling when the new Katatonia, Ensiferum, Sonata Arctica, Kalmah, and (hopefully) Wintersun albums come out, this list will change greatly:cool:

    Haha, aye, I was thinking that it is probable that my top ten albums of the year will be all Finnish releases with Sonata Arctica, Kalmah, Ensiferum and Finntroll albums on the way (and, as you had said, hopefully Wintersun)!

    2. Deathstars - night electric night
    3. God dethroned - Passiondale
    4. Regardless of me - the world within

    and there are quite some albums i´m looking forward to. darkseed and atritas are going to release their new stuff in september, apostasy during the summer, maybe code for silence and throes of dawn are gonna release something, new cryptic wintermoon album comes out soon. and maybe the new graveworm is worth listening to.

    1. Black Sun Aeon - Darkness Walks Beside Me
    2. Amorphis - Skyforger
    3. Eternal Tears of Sorrow - Children Of The Dark Waters
    4. Ensiferum - From Afar

    Haven't bought yet more albums which would have been released in 2009. Prolly at least Kalmah, Ensiferum and/or Viikate will be added into the list later.. Samael's new album is also waiting to be bought.. :)

    Also, the Porcupine Tree double album coming out Sept 21 is more than likely going to blow my mind.

    Konkhra - Nothing Is Sacred
    Disarmonia Mundi - The Restless Memoirs EP
    Hardcore Superstar - Beg For It
    Blut Aus Nord - Memoria Vetusta II - Dialogue with the Stars

    Well, a couple months have passed and, after some further thought on the matter, here is a much more updated list ...

    01. Eluveitie - Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion
    02. Eternal Tears Of Sorrow - Children Of The Dark Waters
    03. Amorphis - Skyforger
    04. Suidakra - Crógacht
    05. Nightrage - Wearing A Martyr's Crown
    06. Devildriver - Pray For Villains
    07. Stratovarius - Polaris
    08. Celesty - Vendetta
    09. Fairyland - Score To A New Beginning
    10. Blackguard - Profugus Mortis
    11. Ex Deo - Romulus
    12. Winds Of Plague - The Great Stone War
    13. Amoral - Show Your Colors


    ... and to think a couple of my most anticipated albums of the year have yet to be released! - an incredible stellar year, to say the least! :)

    I'm probably forgetting some, and some I haven't heard yet.

    EToS - Children Of The Dark Waters
    Leprous - Tall Poppy Syndrome
    Cain's Offering - Gather The Faithful
    OSI - Blood
    Korpiklaani - Karkelo (Not mind blowing, but I've enjoyed listening to it so I'll include it.)

    Kind of sad that I can't say Sonata Arctica is on the list. I don't think their new album is bad, but I haven't really gotten hooked on it or anything.

    1. Swallow the Sun - New Moon
    2. Katatonia - Night is the New Day
    3. Eternal Tears of Sorrow - Children of the Dark Waters
    4. Obiymy Doschu - Elehia
    5. Dethklok - Dethalbum II
    6. Blackguard - Profugus Mortis
    7. Exivious - Exivious
    8. Paramore - brand new eyes
    9. Ensiferum - From Afar
    10. Eminem - Relapse

    I must eat my own words. I was very disappointed with the new Porcupine Tree. It was nothing more than a rehashing of FOABP and Insurgentes.

    I think that with the addition of Wintersun's Kai Hahto into Swallow the Sun, they have that extra jolt needed to push them right up to the top. New Moon is hands down my favorite record of the year, followed closely by the Katatonia record. EToS goes without saying, as do Dethklok, Blackguard, and Ensiferum.

    Obiymy Doschu is a band I've only recently found, they're a Ukranian progressive/acoustic/folk outfit that really blew my mind. They're giving away their album for free on their website http://rain.in.ua/en.html if anyone wants to check them out, it can't hurt.

    Exivious, for anyone unaware, is the side project of Tymon and Robin from Cynic, Michel from Sengaia, and Stef from Textures. It's a mixture of metal riffing with freeform jazz and improvisation, and very well made, I highly recommend this album.

    Paramore is a guilty pleasure of mine, I've known about them since they were just a wee local band before their first album came out, so they'll always have a special place in my heart.

    And finally, Eminem is back and kicking ass as usual. The album wasn't quite as good as MMLP (then again, what is?) but it definitely beat Encore and I'm eagerly awaiting Relapse II.
