My 2011 Roundup

I don't know dudes. Most of my favorite artists have put out an new album but a lot of them don't really strike me that hard.
1Marissa Nadler
Marissa Nadler
2Draconian
A Rose For The Apocalypse


Their best album. Engrossing melodies, superb dual male harsh female clean vocals, great riffs, violin, and songwriting. Less gothic sounding than previous albums but overall a tremendous achievement.
3Maybeshewill
I Was Here For a Moment, Then I Was Gone
4Indian
Guiltless
5So Hideous, My Love
To Clasp a Fallen Wish With Broken Fingers


So epic. The screamo-post rock thing with violin is really good. Great dynamics, emotion and atmosphere.
6Bodies of Water
Twist Again


Heavily Arcade Fire influenced, great male/female vocals and musical diversity. One specific song has a great Noir atmosphere.
7Boatrocker
Delicious Jams


Great post-hardcore. Amazing artwork, go on the blogs for funny reactions from the kvlt crowd expecting something else musically. Alot of people pissed off about the rainbows and picnic setting. WHAT THW FUCK THIS ISNT BLACK METAL...FUCK OFF AND DIE. LOL.
8Grayceon
All We Destroy


Kills.....
9Loss
Despond
10 Corpsessed
The Dagger & The Chalice
11Ulver
Wars of the Roses


Initial hype is over. It's a great album but lacks the memorability and depth of Shadows of the Sun
12Moonlit Sailor
Colors In Stereo


A reasonable follow up to the great So Close To Life but admittedly more derivative and generic. Not quite a dud but could have been better.
13Primordial
Redemption At The Puritan's Hand


Same as Ulver.
14Autopsy
Macabre Eternal
15The Dear Hunter
Red EP


Admittedly I haven't even heard alot of the allegedly finer albums of the year starting with TD.H. I liked II, which would you recommend me, a separate color or the whole collection?
