    GMD did a series of threads like this that drew in a lot of activity and I thought it would be a good way to stir up some activity here on RC. We have done tournaments before, but creating lists of the forum regulars' top albums of each year and decade would be fun and valuable. I chose to start with 1991 because it was a monster year for Metal and diverse. There's something for everyone. This will be open ended until we have an idea of participation and at that time I will set a date to close and tally votes.

    Rules:
    - Please submit a list of your Top 10 releases of the year.
    - First place in your rankings gets 10 points, 2nd gets 9, etc., 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.

    Please let me know if you will participate or if I left anyone out. GMD folks who visit RC feel free to join in.

    I don't find much to say but I still click onto RC regularly, so have my list. Compared to the GMD thread 5 years ago I've only got one addition to insert (Bellzlleb).

    I try to keep my saved lists updated with recent discoveries, but then my taste doesn't change much and it'd be a mammoth undertaking to revisit all my lists properly just to confirm that. Currently I'm working through rating all albums on RYM that I listen to, ie. my digital collection minus obscure albums not on there. Then my next mammoth undertaking will be to see if I can give out more 3.5s & 4.0s to improve the rating spread. Good grief.

    1. Overkill - Horrorscope
    2. Earth - Extra-Capsular Extraction
    3. Cathedral - Forest of Equilibrium
    4. Grave - Into the Grave
    5. Bellzlleb - Mr. Ree ~傀儡とSAD~
    6. Demon - Hold On to the Dream
    7. Entombed - Clandestine
    8. Motörhead - 1916
    9. Sepultura - Arise
    10. Heathen - Vicitims of Deception

    I'll give this a go. I'm sure my list will be less than 10. We're burying the Queen today so we've all got a bonus national holiday (just opened a beer) but I'll give it some thought tomorrow when I'm back at work.

    I still check in on here regularly, shame the revival didn't last.

    1. Bathory - Twilight of the Gods
    2. Iced Earth - Night of the Stormrider
    3. Bolt Thrower - Warmaster
    4. Metallica - Metallica
    5. Paradise Lost - Gothic

    Pretty varied short list there. I could have done 10, but it would have been adding stuff to make up the numbers. I think I'll be able to contribute more a few years down the line, I'm sure '94 will be a great year.

    I can't really make it 10 albums off the top of my mind, but Human and Blessed are the Sick are definitely part of the list

    There's no reason it can't continue! Hopefully everyone can see the value in keeping this place alive.

    Feel free to edit this and add more albums in. You'll probably have plenty of time to do so. I might start threads for a few other years for the few of us here to talk about those years and work on our lists while we wait for others to come back.

    Yeah, if you're interested in doing so, don't worry about taking your time on this. I've been rating each album I think has a chance at my list track by track on RYM to produce an overall rating. Perhaps more time consuming but I feel like I'm being a little more objective about it than when I tried to go by gut feeling alone.

    I'll contribute a list, I briefly used RC semi-regularly last year. :D

    Might help to get this effort off the ground too. Also I'm interested to see how much my list has changed since we did 1991 in the GMD.
    I removed Mental Funeral for Sabbat!? I was on some different shit back in 2017. :lol: Other than that moment of severe retardation, pretty solid list.

    Mental Funeral should definitely be on your list.

    Here's where I'm at currently. There are around 5 albums I need to review that might have a shot at the list and I need to spend more time reviewing my ratings and rankings of these:

    1. Pestilence – Testimony of the Ancients (1991) – 4.67/5 RYM, 93/100
    2. Massacre – From Beyond (1991) – 4.67/5 RYM, 93/100
    3. Bolt Thrower – War Master (1991) – 4.67/5 RYM, 93/100
    4. Cannibal Corpse – Butchered at Birth (1991) 4.64/5 RYM, 93/100
    5. Suffocation – Effigy of the Forgotten (1991) – 4.64/5 RYM, 93/100
    6. Autopsy – Mental Funeral (1991) – 4.56/5 RYM, 91/100
    7. Mortification – Mortification (1991) – 4.55/5 RYM, 91/100
    8. Malevolent Creation – The Ten Commandments (1991) – 4.55/5 RYM, 91/100
    9. Carcass – Necroticism (1991) – 4.5/5 RYM, 90/100
    10. Death – Human (1991) – 4.5/5 RYM, 90/100

    Autopsy - Mental Funeral
    Bolt Thrower - War Master
    Sepultura - Arise

    Beyond these, I have little interest. There are some great albums, lots that I used to own, on that list. They just doesn't tickle my pickle anymore. The 5 listed do.

    Nice list. I'm a little surprised Bolt Thrower isn't higher.

    Yeah over the years that particular album has dropped slightly in rank for me. Still fucking amazing obviously (sitting at a strong 8.5/10) but I reach for it much less compared to Realm of Chaos, For Victory, Mercenary etc.

    @Opeth17 I only just noticed that you didn't actually say 'metal releases only', but I suppose it can be assumed based on the forum section. It suits those of us who can do a one-to-one comparison with our lists in the old GMD thread too.
