    Funnily enough it's the re-recording of "The Gravefields" that got me so hooked on the EP, I think it's better than the original.

    ahh, have not thought about this one in a long time, remember it being good (mp3.com ftw :D)--it did get some attention around the opeth forum I believe.

    I'm glad I checked the ep list, it would've been a tragedy to overlook this death/ doom masterpiece.

    Probably the Summoning album. I love the second track and there are some other strong songs on it. However, it’s mostly a rehash of ideas they had already done, and less impressive than Dol Guldur. Yet, it will probably finish as a top two black metal album of the year.

    That said, it’s a far less offensive winner than most years deliver.

    Agreed. Sleep-inducing and offensiveness rarely intersect.

    1) Funebrarum - Beneath the Columns of Abandoned Gods
    2) System of a Down - Toxicity
    3) Vomitory - Revelation Nausea
    4) Crowbar - Sonic Excess in its Purest Form
    5) Sodom - M-16
    6) Mörk Gryning - Maelstrom Chaos
    7) Dimmu Borgir - Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia
    8) Entombed - Morning Star
    9) Gojira - Terra Incognita
    10) Bolt Thrower - Honour Valour Pride

    HM: Psycroptic / Arch Enemy / Melechesh / Iniquity / Zyklon / Amon Amarth

    Interesting year. Tons of teenage nostalgia that surprisingly held the test of time like Dimmu Borgir. I was going to put Funebrarum as #1 but as I was typing this I realized that Toxicity has never stopped getting plays from me since it came out and I always drum along a few of the tracks whenever I get behind the kit. It really is a flawless album. Pretty crappy year for Death Metal IMO, with the exception of a few albums. Psycroptic's debut was..ehh, and Iniquity's album this year was IMO quite disappointing. I guess that made room for melodic black metal and death n' roll stuff that I normally never put in these top 10's.

    EDIT: Who the fuck am I kidding. Depths of Misery from Beneath the Columns of Abandoned Gods just came on. Doesn't get any better than this folks. Putting it back at #1.
