Actually, I'm slightly new here, been speculating for a very, very long time. I've learned so much from this site, but haven't really gotten into it or written a review or anything. This is my 2009 list. A lot of it isn't in order, and most is subject to change.
Axe To Fall
It slays. Not one bad track either. Wretched World is a perfect closer, Dark Horse is the perfect opener, and that breakdown at the end of Axe To Fall is so heavy that my mind can almost not handle it.
Red In Tooth & Claw
It's scientific, and it's post-hardcore. Oh, and the music is good too.
He Is Never Coming Back
I loved the previous album, and this one isn't quite as good (I liked the mathy riffs like the opening to gristle). But this is different, and it crushes. And the transition from the astronomer to tombless makes me want to throw bricks at old people.
This band is awesome. And catchy. And for a debut full-length, this is just so mature sounding. Although there is still room for improvement (vary the damn vocal styles, and less interludes por favor).
These guys just know how to write amazing albums. Every aspect of this is amazing. The guitars are intricate, the vocals know just how to fit the emotions. And one song is in spanish.
|6||Every Time I Die|
New Junk Aesthetic
Party music for metal-heads. And this band is such a love/hate situation. But they've always been a love of mine.
|7||Dance Gavin Dance|
This plus summer equals pure joy. Seriously, this band is meant to sound this joyful and fun. it's their sweet-spot.
I heard this for the first time, and read the lyrics along with the whole thing, and by the finish I felt kind of drained. It's packed with emotion. it's scary, it's deep, and its grim. And this will get higher over time.
|9|| ||Touche Amore|
To the Beat of A Dead Horse
very well-done post-hardcore/harcore/idontcarecore. I think I'm the only person who thinks "History Reshits Itself" is one of, if not the best track here. The guest vocals fit perfectly.
If this was a full length, it would be possibly be my favorite album this year. This band pulls off concept albums better than almost any other modern band, especially in the hardcore scene.
|Album art can lick my ass. Oh,and there are many, many runner ups. This is just off of the top of my head. I should've made the list longer.|

|awesome list dude|
|That's what happens when you spend around 2 years roaming/reading this site lol.|
|The weird thing about 7 its an album of two halves, and the first half, if you listen to the lyrics, is depressing as fuck.|
|I definitely noticed that, but the music itself just has a fun vide to it. And once self-trepanation kicks in though, the rest is just fun as hell.|
|Props for 4.|
|Shadow Fucking ftw|
