I know, that's sort of what I was going for anyway. And what are the albums you've been disappointed with (just curious, seeing as how I probably haven't heard about half of them)?
Immolation was by far the biggest disappointment followed by the overrated Ulcerate and Gorguts. The latter two albums really didn't add much to something we haven't already heard. I was looking forward to all three of those albums! Oh well, this year has been full of surprises. Who would have thought new Voivod would crush one out of the park?
Probably going to have the most eccentric end-of-the-year-list for metal.
