As The Year Comes To A Close

With December fast approaching, the year 2008 is almost over. Off the top of my head, I cannot think of any albums that I am looking forward to to be released by the end of the year. Thank you, sputnik, for introducing me to such much music in my 20+ months on the site. With your help, I have heard over 60 albums released in 2008. These are my top 20 for the year. I think my top 6 have been decided, but 7-11 are incredibly tight, and if I begin to like 12 as much as I did at first throw that in to the top 10 as well possibly.
1Equilibrium
Sagas


Easily could have been guessed.
2Demians
Building An Empire


Album never ceases to amaze me. Nearly as good as 1 imo, there's just a few parts that have been stretched out a bit too long imo.
3Kalisia
Cybion


Imo, this is comparable with Crimson I and II...its that good.
4Burst
Lazarus Bird


So yeah Burst improved a lot this one, and Origo was already a fantastic album. The first 1:45 of Nineteenhundred is genius.
5 Transcending Bizarre?
The Serpent's Manifolds


Very unique album, can't get enough of it. The keys truly make this album as amazing as it is.
6Intronaut
Prehistoricisms


Perhaps a bit long, but this a great album to just sit back and listen to, specifically The Reptilian Brain.
7Scar Symmetry
Holographic Universe


The title track still remains as probably my favorite song all year.
8The Faceless
Planetary Duality


So much better than I anticipated. I did not expect them to top Akeldama, but this pretty much blows it out of the water. Album art is badass as well.
9In Mourning
Shrouded Divine


Blows Watershed out of the fucking water.
10Protest the Hero
Fortress


OUR GODDESS GAVE BIRTH TO YOUR GOD
11Mirrorthrone
Gangrene


Has worn off of me a bit. Should give this a few more listens, could be higher up in the list.
12Oceans of Sadness
The Arrogance of Ignorance


I kinda overplayed this when I first got it, which is probably why it wore off me a bit, but its still really freaking good.
13Have a Nice Life
Deathconsciousness


A bit long perhaps, but has some of the most beautiful music i've heard ever.
14Iskald
Revelations of Reckoning Day


Read my review, this album slays.
15Bloodbath
The Fathomless Mastery


Was not terribly fond of this at first, but it has grown on me with every listen since then.
16Arghoslent
Hornets of the Pogrom


This may go up a bit actually, I always go back and forth between liking this or Fathomless Mastery better.
17Textures
Silhouettes


Has some of the best songs I've heard all year (Awake and To Erase a Lifetime specifically) but there's one or two songs that don't amount to the rest of the album, which is why it isn't a little bit higher.
18Enslaved
Vertebrae


Also may go up a little bit. Probably the best Enslaved album.
19Mesa Verde
The Old Road


I've listened to this a bunch of time recently, it's really good.
20Gates of Winter
Lux Aeterna


Fucking epic.
