|It's Going To Be So Difficult|
to rank all of this years albums. So much good material, I could make this a list of 50 albums. I'll give it a shot at, say, 15 albums. Also, first list in a long time.
Addicts: Black Meddle Pt. 2
I never really got into these guys until this album, and boy was I missing out. The black metal/electronic stuff just hits the right spot every time.
A Determinism Of Morality
With Isis gone, Rosetta are still here to continue giving us awesome post-metal records.
Album is incredible, it's a wonder more people haven't heard of them.
A monster of a concept album, ending with the ambitious 30 minute track "Affinity", everyone should give this a listen.
|11||Secret And Whisper|
Their vocalist might be one of my favorites in the music scene nowadays. The instruments on this are almost as equally awesome.
We didn't have to wait as long for a third album by these guys, Polarity is more of the same as "Diminishing Between Worlds", which is a very good thing.
|9||Hour Of Penance|
Best Brutal Death Metal release of the year by far, this album culminates in the fantastic, different track "Apotheosis".
A return to form by the mathcore masters, after the deathcore album Minus The Herd.
This album combines hardcore, punk, and black metal to form a combo that is surprisingly delicious. Can't get enough of this now.
The newest album on the list, this album is a monster of progressive death metal, with JFAC vocalist and a former Animosity member. Death Metal needs more saxophones.
A personal choice for me, Lostprophets were my favorite band for the longest time and this album has them returning to their roots.
|4||Dead Letter Circus|
This Is The Warning
This is this years "Sound Awake". Meaning, most likely will be the best progressive rock record of the year.
Majesty And Decay
This one almost takes down Close To A World Below for best Immolation album.
One of the best debut albums in recent memory.
|1||The Dillinger Escape Plan|
My favorite album of the year, from my favorite band. So energetic and chaotic, it deserves no other place but this one. It'll take a beast of an album to dethrone this.
