    RYM ALBUMS LIST
    RYM EP LIST


    Reminder of the rules:
    - please submit at least *5* releases. But just remember, real men vote at 10.
    - first place in your rankings gets 10 points, 2nd gets 9, etcetc, 10th gets 1.
    - feel free to post more than 10, but only the top 10 will get points.
    - feel free to post less than 10, the same scoring will apply.
    - feel free not to rank your picks, in which case all ten picks will get 5.5 points.
    - if you're so much of a dick that you have to post more than 10 unranked picks, only the first 10 will count. In other words, go back to the third rule.

    Submit your lists by APRIL 1st.

    @Baroque I just noticed that Algebra debuted in 2012 and that it's not in your list, just a heads up in case you didn't know.

    Ah snap, you arrived here too late in that case. We still have some good 80's and 90's years left in the non-metal version though.

    there's a lot of solid black thrash from that year. you have aura noir already but there's hades archer, desaster, mongrel's cross, gospel of the horns (EP), master of cruelty, ketzer etc. the demoncy album is cool iirc. faustcoven are usually dependably decent although i haven't heard that one i don't think. totale vernichtung are p good. obviously there's mgla. acrimonious is a greek one on my wishlist. there's a master's hammer album as well.

    Actually haven't heard the Hellwell or Wrathblade yet, obviously will check out both but even if I end up digging both I'm a long ways off having 10 albums to list.

    This album is a beast. Only reason it isn't on my list anywhere is because I've only listened to it twice when it was up on Bandcamp. Planning to buy it on CD at some point, because I know with enough time it will become a firm favourite. That's a band I need to put more time into in general.

    Demoncy, Totale Vernichtung, Mgła and Acrimonious are ones I haven't heard yet, thanx.

    I feel like you might enjoy the Hail Spirit Noir debut but I find you hard to predict. There's also Skelator's album Agents of Power which is pretty good, not their best and it feels a bit bloated to me, but it's high energy stuff. Züül's album To the Frontlines is also nice.
