|15 Best Metal This Year|
I'm not happy with my 07 list so I'm splitting up the thing into 2 lists, metal and non-metal.
|1||Wolves In the Throne Room|
Amazing black metal that greatly perfected from their last release.
Drudkh as always deliver a superb slab of atmospheric black metal.
To the Nameless Dead
With this release Primordial sound as powerful as ever, vocals improved a lot too.
Excellent viking metal, even if the songs are extremely long!
Different, crazy and wonderful, I just can't get enough of this album.
A very high quality release from these Belgians, with great varied vocals and awesome keyboards.
Pagans have a way of making some super black metal, and with this release Kroda prove they still have it.
Given to the Rising
Crushing and at times even awe inspiring, an excellent post-metal album.
|9|| ||Lunar Aurora|
Lunar Aurora stay consistent as always, too bad we won't be hearing this band put out more superb black metal for awhile.
Even with Jari gone Ensiferum can still make some great, catchy viking metal.
Awesome death metal, great vocals and very good drumming.
More folk influenced then some of there more recent albums, and it turned out very nice.
A rather unknown gem with some seriously good folk influences without overdoing it.
Framing Armageddon (Something Wicked Pt. 1)
Stormripper proves he has some great vocals and that Iced Earth have not lost it.
Idea. Form. Essence...
Just got this today but it's really great. A side project of Drudkh's Thurios that goes in a more raw direction than Drudkh.
|Top 5 are very good.|
|4 and 11 were excellent. 10 was pretty good. 14 was disappointing for me. I've been meaning to look into 2, 3, 5, and 12 for a while now. I would probably have included the Chemins de Souffrance (Belenos) and Det Vilde Kor (Lumsk).|
You might want to take a look at my latest list. There's a lot of unknown stuff in there I think you'd like.
|Yeah I haven't heard that Belenos album. I know pretty much all of that stuff on your list, good stuff.|
|1-3,5,8,11 are really good. 3 being my favorite off this list. i need 4,6,10|
|14 sucked so bad.|
|Yeah, 1-5 are sick although I need 2, 4, and 5. 6 is pretty cool, and if 7 is like Kampfar then Ill check it out.|
|1 is pretty amazing. |
|too bad Ripper got fucked over|
|Yeah I know =/ I don't even know what to think....|
|Victory Songs was pretty sick.|
Framing Armageddon was a let-down as a whole, but there's some kick ass songs here and there.
|And for good reason: it doesn't deserve to be here.|
|16 would have been Colors right?|
|Ehh, Colors didn't excite me very much, it had a really out of place moments but overall it was still enjoyable. |
|yes to Sigh and Neurosis. Needs Baroness and Pelican|
