    Obviously make sure to hit up RYM yourself and search your favourite genres.

    The deadline is whenever I feel like it.

    The rules:
    - submit at least 5 releases.
    - 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.

    GNMD = General Non-Metal Discussion, so NO UNAMBIGUOUSLY METAL ALBUMS are to be included in anybody's list.

    The Misfits' 12 Hits from Hell was recorded in 1980 too, though only released in 2001. One of my favourite Misfits recordings.
