    Just have listened to Anthriel - The Pathway a few times. DAMN solid debut album from Finland. Sounds a bit like Cloudscape mixed with Symphony X, very good progmetal.

    I've been waiting for the new Magic Kingdom to drop. The initial songs I've heard on Youtube sound great (other than the growling). Olaf Hayer still sounds as good as ever.

    Edit: The samples I heard on iTunes intrigued me so much, I bought it. Absolutely fantastic effort! If you like stuff in the Rhapsody / Yngwie sort of vibe, you might want to check it out.

    The new Helloween album is pretty awesome, I don't really like much of their older stuff I've heard. I think that's the only metal album I've heard that was released this year. I'm trying to catch up with all the old stuff first.

    Thanks SoundMaster.

    I'll be seeing Carach Angren and Immortal, amongst others, on the 18th of December at the Eindhoven Metal Meeting in the center of Eindhoven live. Practically around the corner for me. Looking forward to that very much!

    Enjoying Vega: Kiss of Life which would have been the perfect summer pop metal album of 2010. But just came out today.

    Overwhelming album. I consider it´s a kind of Gun meets melodic rock. One of the best AOR releases from 2010. Martin brothers are outstanding songwriters. They did with Work Of Art (their personal project) but too with other artist (House Of Lords, Joe Lynn Turner, Sunstorm,...). If case you didn´t hear it please check Khymera "The greatest wonder". In my opinion, a masterpiece and the best Martin´s work.

    Finally getting around to my Top 10 list. Still a ton of 2010 releases that I haven't properly listened too yet, of course.

    1 Accept - Blood of the Nations - what more can I saw about this one?
    2 Danzig - Deth Red Sabboth - nice surprise after 15 year drought
    3 Virgin Steele - Black Light Bacchanalia - almost met expectations
    4 Orphaned Land - ORwarriOR - right on par with Mabool
    5 Armored Saint - La Raza - wish these guys would record more often
    6 Blind Guardian - Edge of Time - big improvement over prior 2 albums
    7 Atlantean Kodex - Golden Bough - quality Manilla Road / Bathory worship
    8 Black Country Communion - Glenn Hughes sounds great
    9 Therion - Sitra Ahra - spotty, but has some good tunes
    10 Iron Maiden - Final Frontier - disappointing, but still Maiden

    In no particular order (except maybe the first five are a notch above the rest):

    Echoes - Nature/Existence
    Rage - Strings To A Web
    Jon Oliva's Pain - Festival
    Star One - Victims Of The Modern Age
    Armored Saint - La Raza
    Iron Maiden - The Final Frontier
    Grave Digger - The Clans Will Rise Again
    Andre Matos - Mentalize
    Helloween - 7 Sinners
    Kamelot - Poetry For The Poisoned

    Still on the list are Therion, Circle II Circle, Allen/Lande, Roswell Six, Angra, Shaman, Accept etc so this list will change.

    "Mentalize" is a 2009 release, I bought it that year (and recall it ranked good). You just got it in 2010?

    I think it was released in Japan and Brazil in 2009 but my version (SPV) indeed says 2010 in the back.

    Yeah, I got the Brazilian version I think. It will be the same with the new Motorhead, it was released at the end of 2010 but I bet the February USA release will say 2011. :wave:
