would've made my list if I put more effort in
love the Bulldozer cover
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 )--it did get some attention around the opeth forum I believe.

Great year with tons of variety. Really hard to rank.
Which album gets the Venom Award though?
He already listed it - that Emperor album.
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.

For anybody still to post lists or finalize their shit, posting the results of this on Monday.
Since the Brits have voted to boycott Europe @no country for old wainds should be forced to come up with the top 10 English albums of the year IMO
Will we be doing top albums of 2019 next, given the thread for 2018 was posted towards the end of last December?
Yeah I'm doing 2019 next, and that will stay open for longer than usual.
^same with movies too?
Aren't you doing the 2019 films thread?
