    Yeah, the Riot disc is great. My fave of the year so far. Three of the tracks are not as enjoyable as the rest, but it is probably my third favorite album from the band behind Immortal Soul and Thundersteel. Nothing new, of course. Just well-written songs in a style I really appreciate.

    I like Slash's previous disc with Myles as well, so the new one being good was not a surprise for me. Certainly something fans of the Alter Bridge/Shinedown vibe should check out.

    So far...

    Unisonic - Light of Dawn
    Within Temptation - Hydra
    Striker - City of Gold
    Anette Olzon - Shine (my oddball pick..this type of music makes sense for her voice)
    Delain - The Human Contradiction (they finally hooked me with this one)

    *Side Note* I haven't heard the Dynazty or the Work of Art yet. Work of Art may very well bump a band out of the top 5 for me once I actually get my hands on it.

    That Dynazty is just too darned catchy. I haven't listened to anything else in a week.

    I thought Accept would be in my top 5 before it got released...but i really don't care for it much. Its not as intense as the last two and really 'safe'. Its not bad but there's no 'Revolution' or 'Stalingrad' on this disc too many mid tempo tracks.

    I love that Dynazty cd, Incarnation and Salvation are my fav tracks. The vocals are just insane on those.

    I've only liked 3 albums enough to buy so far this year. Spotify is helping me catch up though.

    Opeth - Pale Communion
    Anubis Gate - Horizons
    Work of Art - Framework

    Given that I missed Progpower this year, there is a lot of stuff I haven't bought.

    Anathema - Distant Satellites
    Sabaton - Heroes
    Transatlantic - Kaleidoscope
    Edguy - Space Police
    A.C.T - Circus Pandemonium

    But, I don't own the new Falconer or Voyager, which likely would make this list somewhere.

    Assuming, the new single has blown me away, can't wait already pre-ordered.

    Someone else mentioned this album to me today and I've been listening to it on Youtube. Epically brutal. Despite not really liking screamers, this is pretty good stuff.

    I need to edit my own post. I forgot one release this year that snuck up on me and kicked my butt: Madman's Lullaby - Unhinged

    So, I'll replace Delain with Madman's Lullaby.

    I fucking love threads like this, because every now and then I find some oddball band nobody ever mentions and it kicks my ass. Very, very impressed with the songs I've heard of this one so far.
