Top Albums Of 2011

My Top albums of 2011
1Rwake
Rest


Rwake really out did them selves with this album.I think this one is a little bit better then Voices of Omens.A great blend of Doom/Sludge metal that takes you on a long journey.Nice heavy,dense guitar that crush.The most spacey album I heard this year.
2Trap Them
Darker Handcraft


It seems like trap Them just get better with each album and in my opinion they have reached new heights with this album.Very heavy and in your face with very crusty,metallic guitar work and great drums as well.A good balanced mix of hardcore and metal.
3Toxic Holocaust
Conjure and Command


If you've lost faith in Thrash metal these days this album will change that for sure.Probably the best Toxic Holocaust release to date.Punchy drums,fast riffs, and good sounding bass and lets not forget the vocals.Very apocalyptic album with a great production and mixing behind it.
4Tombs
Path of Totality


With my first listen of this album I didn't really like but after a lot of multiple listen it really grew on me a lot.I loved Winter Hours so getting into this album's sound was a challenge but over coming that challenge was worth it.Drums sound chaotic and super punchy and Mike Hill's guitar work is very dark and fast that sound echoy and chaotic as well.
5BADBADNOTGOOD
BBNG


A pretty strange choice for a metal guy like me but I love Jazz music and this band/album meld Jazz with the beats of hip hop very while.All three musicians play off each other very well like its an old school 1950s Jazz collaboration.
6 Earth
Angels of Darkness,Demons of Lights 1


One of Earth's best albums so far.The addition of cello was a great touch to their country/drone/ambient sound they've been messing with for a while now.
7Cynic
Carbon-based Anatomy


Even though it's not an album, I still think it's one of the best releases to come out this year.Cynic has stripped all of their death metal roots and come out with a great sounding prog rock EP.Looking forward to future releases soon.
8YOB
Atma


Another album that has grown on me a lot this year.An interesting take on Doom/Prog metal that sounds huge and heavy as hell.Scott Kelly(Neurosis)'s addition on the track Before We Dreamed of Two sounds awesome and very ambient.
9Tom Waits
Bad As Me


I've always like Tom Wait's music very much because very one of his albums has a different feel and this album is no exception.Tom sounds like a mad man in this but still retaining that controlled chaos feel.Though not one of my favorites of his albums, its still a solid release and one of my favorites of this year.
10Brutal Truth
End Time


Brutal Truth have always been a very mind bending grindcore band and this album is no exception.It requires a lot of attention (well for me anyway) but its fun listen once you get past all the craziness of the instruments.One of the best grindcore acts out now and not to mention the stellar drum work of Richard Hoak.
