black metal Album feels like one long, relentless, demented vocal onslaught.
20Tim Hecker
Ravedeath, 1972


ambient/electronic - Hatred of Music II A rare non-vocal album that consumed me from start to finish.
19Wormrot
Dirge


grind - Abuse had better and more low growls but this still rules.
18Thrice
Major/Minor


post-hardcore/alt rock - Words in the Water Cataracts and Listen Through Me the only average tracks. The guitar melody in Anthology reminds me of My Hero by Foo Fighters.
17Opeth
Heritage


progressive - Pyre. The Devil's Orchard. Folklore. Not a bad track but just not compulsive listening like most of their prior releases.
16 Liveride
?????? ??????


atmospheric/ambient black metal - ????????? ????????? ?????? (Crossing the Ural Range) Depressive vocals amidst a lot of melancholic, ambient passages.

14TesseracT
One


progressive/math metal - Lament Shame the vocalist is no longer with the band, awesome cleans.

atmospheric black metal - Thuja Magus Imperium The cluster of 4 shorter tracks stems the flow but I was still captivated by the overall atmosphere and 3 epic tracks.

11Rhinocervs
RH-11


black metal - Chambers of Grime. Maw of Death.
10Ruin Lust
Demo 2011


black/death metal - Song 4 Awesome heavy album.
9Nine Covens
On the Coming of Darkness


atmospheric black metal - Cold Exile of a Fallen Idol Very consistent, melodic album which throws in some sludgy/hardcore riffs and the black and death vocals are top notch.
8Solstafir
Svartir Sandar


atmospheric sludge/progressive - Fjara. Title Track. Peculiar mix of genres from catchy and progressive to post whatever with the guitars creating a great chill, desolate atmosphere reminiscent of Neil Young's Old Western soundtrack to Dead Man.
7Steven Wilson
Grace for Drowning


progressive - No Part of Me After all the insta 5s I was disappointed at first but after multiple listens this went from a 3 to 4.5
6Mastodon
The Hunter


metal/progressive - The Hunter. The Sparrow. Very consistent, catchy rawk with excellent solos on my 2 fav tracks.
5Dance Gavin Dance
Downtown Battle Mountain II


post-hardcore - Need Money. Swan Soup. Very consistent, catchy, fun, funky album.
4Florence and the Machine
Ceremonials


art pop - Strangeness and Charm So many big, catchy numbers.
3Panopticon
Social Disservices


atmospheric black metal - Patient. Resident. I'm new to Panopticon and I found the atmosphere powerful and riveting and the instrumentation outstanding.
2City and Colour
Little Hell


indie/folk pop - We Found Each Other in the Dark and most of the others. Incredible vocal melodies, emotion and lush production. Bonus track duet At the Birds Foot is excellent.
1Esoteric
Paragon of Dissonance


funeral doom - Abandonment What an epic album, the complete package. Excellent production and atmosphere, the diverse components sustain the interest, and the immense growls and cries are so emotive.
