    In relative order...

    Solstafir - Kold
    Cobalt - Gin
    Indukti - IDMEN
    Teitanblood - Seven Chalices
    The Chasm - Farseeing the Paranormal Abysm
    While Heaven Wept - Vast Oceans Lachrymose
    Shackles - Traitors' Gate
    Diocletian - Doom Cult
    Mournful Congregation - The June Frost
    Grave Miasma - Exalted Emanation

    (Arghoslent will more than likely bump it's way in to the fray once I get my hands on the split)

    What a fucking crazy year for metal, my list has changed quite a bit again... there's tons of great stuff that would never make it onto a top 10 list which is a shame.

    Altar of Plagues - White Tomb
    Cobalt - Gin
    Diocletian - Doom Cult
    Ignivomous - Death Transmutation
    Katharsis - Fourth Reich
    Procession - Cult of Disease
    Skagos - Ast
    Shackles - Traitors' Gate
    Teitanblood - Seven Chalices
    While Heaven Wept - Vast Oceans Lachrymose

    Ares Kingdom isn't out yet, but I suspect this would take the spot of something once it does.

    Ones that will surely be on the top:

    Revelation - For the Sake of No One
    Griftegard - Solemn, Sacred, Severe

    There has been a lot of great albums this year, but I don't think anything is phenomenal besides the two above.

    I still have a lot to digest even from what I've already purchased, and there are still tons of albums that I haven't even gotten yet (and as Vittra mentioned, some, like the Ares Kingdom, aren't even out yet), but this is what I came up with:

    1. Beherit - Engram
    2. The Chasm - Farseeing the Paranormal Abysm
    3. Asphyx - Death...The Brutal Way
    4. Master's Hammer - Mantras
    5. Grave Miasma - Exalted Emanation
    6. Ignivomous - Death Transmutation
    7. Teitanblood - Seven Chalices
    8. Procession - The Cult of Disease
    9. Argus - Argus
    10. Excoriate - On Pestilent Winds...

    Albums that I think might have a chance to crack the top 10 are many...like Griftegard, Slugathor, Revelation, Ares Kingdom, Infinitum Obscure, Memory Driven, Diocletian, Spiritus Mortis, Weapon, Denial, etc.

    A bunch of hipster shit.


    ....though something tells me I should hear this Cobalt album. I love gin in all its forms.

    How the hell did I forget about this one? I'd put it somewhere in my top 3, don't know where.

    Indukti!

    Unquestionably #1.

    Bought this for like $2.00 a few months ago at Amoeba. Maybe I should listen to it.

    I have to say, I find the latest Grizzly Bear to be pretty damn spectacular. They're really onto something new and different, and I like it. Hated it on the first couple of listens though.

    A local band I really dig is Thee Oh Sees. Their album Help is weird-ass psyched-out garage rock that is oddly infectious. Oh, and it sounds exactly like the cover art:

    The cover is ghastly. :lol:


    ...and DUDE, listen to the DM Stith. WTF? I really think you should dig it.

    And I just got the latest The Tangent. I could never get into Tillison's vocals but the tunes are usually great. This new one is supposedly their best yet.

    Hey, you're the douchebag who doesn't want to invest the measly 4 seconds it takes to flush your dirty box.
