Up and coming!
|1|| ||Orphaned Land|
The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR
Don't really like the title at all, but this band released one of the best albums of the decade in Mabool, and if they do release this this year it'll be amazing, I've got no doubt.
Evocation I - The Arcane Dominion
Apparantly this is a pure folk album, well, I'll be wanting to give it a listen anyway. This band's grown on me recently.
One of my favourite bands, I just love all of their material. Simple as.
I thought the s/t was overrated, but it was still pretty great. I'm hoping this improves on it.
|5|| ||Circle Takes The Square|
Ritual Of Names
No idea if they will release it this year, but if they do, chances are it would be awesometastic.
Blessing in Disgust
New death metuhl band featuring Dan Swano on vocals along with some other awesome musicians, I'm horny for this band to release some teasers.
Just a really good band, this should be solid at least.
Never got into this band quite as much as I should have, hopefully this helps.
Really liked the band's last effort, even if it did grow off me. Unfortunately, they lost their singer, and I loved his voice, but this should still be solid hopefully.
|10|| ||My Own Grave|
Really great thrashy death metal band, deserves more recognition. Hopefully this album gets them that.
|11|| ||The Project Hate MCMXCIX|
Got a good feeling about this. Their last album practically dominated my listening while I was on holiday, and they've just got something about them. This could be big.
Bring on the death metal, Christian Alvestramm's [sic] best band, this better be rape me.
|13|| ||In Vain|
Great band, debut was unbelievable. Let's see what the follow up is like.
|14|| ||Flies Are Spies From Hell|
Their last ep blew me away, really love this band's dynamics. Post rock awesomeness.
The clips that I have heard are ace, bring this bad boy on.
Amaranthine was awesome, hopefully this follows in it's footsteps and brings the win.
Have a good feeling about this one, Insomnium never really grabbed me as much as they should, this could change that.
Hymn to the Immortal Wind
|20 - It's not technically out on an album yet, and have you SEEN the packaging these guys have got? It looks amazing, and I can't wait to read the lyrics.|
|Is 1 correct? Ending Way Of ORWarrior? 1,2,4,6 although Dan Swano is getting overrated with associations to mediocre bands, 8,9,15,17,18, and 19 are on my to do lists. Dark Tranquillity and Primordial are also releasing new albums this year.|
|That's what it's called|
New Wintersun is never coming out maan
Didn't know Dark Tranquillity was coming out with a new album, should be good.
|wheres cannibal coorrrrrpssee|
|Dark Tranquillity and Primordial too? Oh sweet.|
|I have a recent-ish issue of Decibel with each month in 09 with each album that is supposed to be released. I'll shed some light.|
My Dying Bride
Poison The Well
Primordial-Post Summer Or Fall
Case in point, 2009 will be a moster year for metal, as if 2008 wasn't we can always count on the next year being prime for metal.
|just to add to this and balls' list:|
wolves in the throne room
|As soon as Cybion is out for pre-order I'm on it. The price won't matter. Can't wait for new OL, Manegarm, and mostly everything else on this list. I was actually planning on doing this type of list soon.|
|Balls is probably the only other person in these comments looking forward to Paramore.|
Eluveitie doing just folk sounds quite awesome.
|I can't get through 20 to save my life. I onlyl isten to like the first 15 minutes. |
big YES to Primordial and Dark Tranquillity. I am looking forward to Wintersun and new Diablo Swing Orchestra this year too.
Most of my best of 08 albums came out of nowhere for me anyways, and the ones I was looking forward to were a bit disappointing (In Flames, Children of Bodom)
|I want new CTTS soooo bad and I have only been listening to them for about a year. I can't imagine how long some of you have been waiting for it. It better come out this year or some shit is goin down|
|new mono appears to be fantastic|
|if 4 doesnt come out this year im gonna be so fucking pissed|
|2009 is going to rock my socks off.|
dude now we both have joker profile pics lol and I was going to use that same pic after I was done with the graphic novel but I guess you beat me to it.
|Hell yeah, Paramore. Good call Ninjuice. I hope they follow down the "Decode" route.|
|I'm personally excited to hear Green Day's new album to see how they progressed. and Iron Maidens new one.|
|looking mega-forward to 1, 4, 6, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 19 and 20, as well as those revealed by Balls and fireaboveicebelow: KSE, Necrophagist, Hypocrisy, Katatonia, WITTR, Mastodon, Chimaira and DT. 2009 looks niiiiceeee|
|the packaging for cybion is sickness|
|haha jingledeath, yeah, sort of got interested in the joker now. he's pretty ace. anyways, Hypocrisy, Nahemah, and Katatonia? Man, 2009 could rape 08.|
|you need to switch it to a picture of joker from Arkham Asylum graphic novel. Dave McKean is a genius.|
oh and 20 rules. can't wait for 3,5,17,19 and pretty much every one Balls listed
|looking forward to 19|
