Top 10 Metal Albums Of 2009

Saw the other list and thought i'd share my own take. When The Great Misdirect and Axe to Fall are released they will very, very likely be near the top of this list.
Fragmentary Evidence

My top album of the year. Consistently excellent throughout, and a huge improvement over "Concealed." Though I would struggle to say Augury are completely original, I can't think of any other band that really sounds like them.

A highly successful marriage of unforgiving black metal and folk music which, unlike many other bands that attempt the same, is not cheesy in the slightest. The two genres compliment eachother remarkably.
Everything is Fire

One of the heaviest/densest fucking albums i've ever listened to. Technical/brutal death metal with sludgy production. Very trippy.
Wavering Radiant

My personal favorite Isis album tbh.
A Taste of Extreme Divinity

Hypocrisy really don't disappoint. Virus was more memorable as a whole, but this is still an incredible relase. I'd rank it in their top 5 easily. "Global Domination" is a killer track.

Has grown off of me since I first heard it, but this is some of the best progressive-death metal released inside the United States.
7Fleshgod Apocalypse

Brutal death metal mixed with elegant symphonies....works very well without being as cheesy as say...Dimmu Borgir.

It's no Rust in Piece but it's a blast to listen to. As much of a bitch Dave Mustaine is this really is better than Death Magnetic.

I've only heard one other Drudkh album besides this (Autumn Aurora) but this is definitely my favorite. Solid atmospheric black metal.
10Conducting From the Grave
When Legends Become Dust

Ridiculously fun album to listen to. This is about as good as technical death metal(core) gets.
