After an almost 2 year hiatus from this forum, and in desperate search of the best tech metal albums out there, I come back to you with another way more comprehensive poll after the one i posted almost 3 years ago in November 2005 which excluded alot of the major players in this genre. I hope this time around, my list is more representing and accurate for all you crazy tech metal fans out there.... choose wisely, you only get 1 pick (and yes, Spiral Architect's ASU is still excluded from this list for the obvious reasons) !! My pick this time around has changed from Cynic's Focus to the Beyond God-like album "A Social Grace" by the demigods: Psychotic Waltz !!
