iTokoloshe's 25 Of 2007

The 25 metal albums that made the world go round in 2007. These are in no particular order.
1Annihilator
Metal


Great use of guest artists on this album to complement Jeff Waters god-like guitar work
2Arch Enemy
Rise of the Tyrant


Melodic, brutal, powerful and Angela Gossow
3As I Lay Dying
An Ocean Between Us


More consistent that their previous albums, but does suffer from excessive use of auto-tune on the clean vocals
4Avenged Sevenfold
Avenged Sevenfold


A sound that is so unique that it can't be labelled. Well structured songs with no rules
5Baroness
Red Album


Intricate, colourful and powerful...but that's just the artwork. The music matches the artwork and add a fist to the nose
6Daath
The Hinderers


Technical brutality
7DevilDriver
The Last Kind Words


More groove, more speed, more moshing
8Dimmu Borgir
In Sorte Diaboli


Music with layers of awesomeness. This is the most complete Dimmu album with contributions from all members which are memorable
9Down
Down III: Over the Under


Phil Anselmo is still angry on another swamp metal classic. Only criticism is that the album could have benn 15 minutes shorter
10Every Time I Die
The Big Dirty


Faster than a cheetah, more brutal than a grizzly bear and as funny as a platypus
11Exodus
The Atrocity Exhibition... Exhibit A


Gary Holt and the guys thrash it up like only Exodus can. Rob Dukes is growing into a good frontman and his over the top aggression works well
12 Feedback
Pieces


Debut album from a little known South African band. Part Bush, part Breaking Benjamin and all round great stuff
13HIM
Venus Doom


As the title implies, a doomier sound compared to their previous efforts. Their heaviest album yet, but the music plays second fiddle to the magnificent vocal performance of Ville Valo
14In This Moment
Beautiful Tragedy


Raw and energetic. Don't be fooled by any preconceptions, this is a great metal album. Maria Brink's vocals are a highlight
15Machine Head
The Blackening


Robb Flynn and the team destroy on this album. If you are able to listen to Beautiful Mourning without breaking out into a mosh, then there is something very wrong with you. One of the all time classic albums
16Nato
Kill the Fox to Foil the Plan


I stumbled across this gem of an album by chance. Very raw but with brutal breakdowns and fantastic energy
17Nine Inch Nails
Year Zero


Great follow-up to With Teeth. Trent Reznor continues to evolve his sound and hits another high point on Year Zero
18 Obituary
Xecutioner's Return


A return indeed, great death metal from the Floridian legends
19Parkway Drive
Horizons


Quickly building a reputation as one of the best users of the breakdown. They make it feel natural and huge. I can't help but smile and rock out when i listen to them
20RSJ
Gain to Nothing


Like being punched in the face by Wolverine, claws and all. Unrelenting and thunderous
21Sanctity
Road to Bloodshed


Great metal made really well. Vocals are diverse and powerful
22Still Remains
The Serpent


A bit mellower than Of Love and Lunacy, but where the aggression has softened the hooks have tightened
23Chimaira
Resurrection


More riffs, more electronics, more groove, more anger, more Chimaira
24The Black Dahlia Murder
Nocturnal


Doing what they do best, clubbing baby seals and having fun doing it
25The Dillinger Escape Plan
Ire Works


A more focussed and coherent effort from Greg Pusciato and his loony lads. Not that they needed more focus or coherence. It is still a cluster**** of awesome music
