Top 20 Metal Albums Of 2009

Here it is, my metal list for 2009. And what a year it has been. So many good albums came out I had to extend my usual 10 item lists to 20. So here they are. Im gonna give an Honorable mention to the Binary Code - Suspension Of Disbelief.
1Enfold Darkness
Our Cursed Rapture


After seeing this band live, it was confirmed. This was my best record of 2009. Not only is their lead singer hilarious, but he has a dragonball tattoo on his arm. Come on now. Thats awesome. Anyways to the music. They played EVERY note spot on. It was like listening to the CD. And oh, wow, what a CD. It's like The Faceless, with Black Dahlia Murder vocals. It's insane, and they've got amazing Acoustic parts. As you can tell, Im completely biased on this one, but whatever.
2Scale The Summit
Carving Desert Canyons


This is probably my favorite instrumental album of all time. It makes me feel so many different emotions while listening to the songs, like I actually feel like im on The Great Plains when I listen to The Great Plains. It's an incredible album and manages to stay interesting throughout the entire album without vocals.
3Coalesce
Ox


2009 - The Year of the Comeback. But more importantly, YEAR OF THE OX. Coalesce's latest is also in my opinion their best, making up for their long absence in the music world.
4The Arusha Accord
The Echo Verse


How could I make a list and not put a "djent" album on here. This album is pretty mathy, and I enjoy the clean vocals quite a bit. It'll have to do until the debut albums of Periphery and TesseracT.
5Katatonia
Night Is The New Day


This was my first encounter with Katatonia, and Im happy it happened. Gloomy, progressive, and emotional, this is a monster of an album.
6Between The Buried And Me
The Great Misdirect


Only 6 songs on this thing, but it manages to hold my interest throughout, which is quite a feat. Not quite as good as colors, but still very impressive.
7Converge
Axe To Fall


NO metal list is complete without this this year. Not as good as Jane Doe, of course, but, similar to BTBAM, it's my second favorite album of theirs.
8Circle Of Contempt
Artifacts In Motion


Best deathcore album of the year. It's progressive deathcore, not the usual, ordinary, boring generic deathcore. The breakdowns are well executed and they don't drive their music like so many other deathcore bands.
9Architects
Hollow Crown


Very similar to The Arusha Accord, but not quite as good. If they toured together it would be a dream.
10Revocation
Existence Is Futile


I will not stop promoting this album. It needs to be heard. It's tech death/thrash, so GET IT. You wont regret it.
11Funebrarum
The Sleep Of Morbid Dreams


Blackened Death Metal hasnt sounded this good in a while. It certainly has an old school vibe, and it sounds great.
12Anaal Nathrakh
In The Constellation Of The Black Widow


Very recently aquired, and a good thing too. Their blend of Black Metal/grindcore is unmistakable. And it's incredibly brutal.
13Daath
The Concealers


This came out pretty early in the year, but its very awesome progressive death metal. Eyal is a genius.
14Ulcerate
Everything Is Fire


Brutal tech death. And of course, most likely, Sputniks choice of metal album of the year.
15Tracedawn
Ego Anthem


I dont know what to make of this. It's like melodic progressive death metal, with clean vocals often. It's quite the listen, actually.
16The Red Chord
Fed Through The Teeth Machine


The Red Chord makes their best album since Fused In Revolving Doors.
17Ensiferum
From Afar


I have a guilty pleasure for Melodic Death/folk. Can't wait for Wintersun next year.
18Shining
VI - Klagopsalmer


One of the best black metal albums of the year.
19CiLiCe
Deranged Headtrip


Most overlooked album of the year for me. Everyone needs to check this out. It's Djent, and quite good at that.
20Behemoth
Evangelion


This was my first listen to Behemoth, and it's my favorite record by them
