    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 rule #3

    please try to submit your lists by January 19th

    Oh and happy holidays everyone!

    I can just barely make a top 5 right now of music I think is at least above average:

    1. Superstition - Surging Throng of Evil's Might
    2. Satan - Cruel Magic
    3. Judas Priest - Firepower
    4. Voïvod - The Wake
    5. Refuge - Solitary Men
    6. Horrendous - Idol
    7. Ancestor - Lords of Destiny
    8. Deceased - Ghostly White
    9. Rapture - Paroxysm of Hatred
    10. Zealotry - At the Nexus of All Stillborn Worlds

    But there's a lot of stuff that I think I'll like that I haven't heard yet.

    EDIT: Added a few

    No Jungle Rot?

    People think Dave Ingram is shit too. Well, at least his voice didn't get BTFO like Willetts'

    Willetts at his peak was godly, Ingram was always very average by contrast but his vocals have held up. Willetts sounds awful these days. It's a shame, Memorium were robbed of two potentially great albums because of his terrible performance.

    Sorry, no Jungle Rot. I liked their new album a lot, but I ended up with so many 9/10's this year that Jungle Rot didn't even make the honourable mentions, since I decided to not list anything below a 9/10.

    I have a ton of listening to do, fell behind this year. Skeletal Remains holy shit, I’ll probably end up listening to that a few times. Might be one of the last voters this time

    My list is gonna be filled with black metal I feel. Some death metal I need to revisit like the Tomb Mold (surprised it isn't on your list CIG actually). Although I wasn't huge on it when a few people here were raving about it.

    I'm so burned out from blasting through 2014, but I'll get to the task at hand.
