|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.
My top album of the year. Consistently excellent throughout, and a huge improvement over
Though I would struggle to say Augury are completely original, I can't think of any other band that
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
Everything is Fire
One of the heaviest/densest fucking albums i've ever listened to. Technical/brutal death metal with
production. Very trippy.
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.
Brutal death metal mixed with elegant symphonies....works very well without being as cheesy as
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.
|10||Conducting From the Grave|
When Legends Become Dust
Ridiculously fun album to listen to. This is about as good as technical death metal(core) gets.
|nice, 1 is pure boss|
|Nice list. 1, 6, 10 are awesome. I have to listen to 3 yet.|
|nothing bad about the list but there is so much more good metal that can be in anyone's top10|
|Don't rule out "Night is the New Day", I have a feeling that it's going to be immense.|
|A lot better than the other list|
|1, 4 and 9 are good... but I can't shake the feeling you're missing some albums.|
|I want 1...was gonna buy it the other day but it was £15/$25 in the shop|
|much better than the other list|
|this needs Nathrakh and Sun of the Blind.|
|Yeah I need to check those two out.|
Also I would find out Axe to Fall leaked today right after making this list...sounds like a 4.5 to me and would be near the top definitely.
|So Axe to Fall would either be 1 or 2 here, definitely.|
|have to hear 3,5,6,7,10. collapse> FE imo. but ea,agree that so much more can make up a top 10 metal list.its been a great year for metal|
|yeah 1,3,7 kicks ass!!!|
