Metal has been consistently great this year. Its just been lacking in outstanding releases, this is one of them imo.

2011 has not been a poor year at all, you just haven't heard the right metal albums

I seriously doubt that but I'm always looking for recs so if you have any please do tell

Digging: Obscura - Diluvium

There's nothing to doubt, its pretty much fact. Desloate Shrine, Azarath, Durazis and a lot of other bands have put out excellent albums this year, you're just relying too much on sputnik for metal releases when the site only ever catches on a few excellent releases.

Digging: Burial Invocation - Abiogenesis

Desolate Shrine are awesome. That Azarath release is pretty great too.

That Desolate Shrine album was pretty good (like a 3.5, maybe) but I didn't like that Azarath album at all... Haven't heard that Durazis album yet so thanks for that.

Oh and by the way I get my metal from a few other metal-oriented sites :]
I wouldn't have reviewed the new Aosoth or the new Cruachan if I hadn't seen them on another site...

All I'm saying is that this year has been really great, and I would bet money that there are probably still quite a few decent releases on the horizon.

It's more of an Opeth album, but it rules.

The only similarity the last enslaved had with opeth are the clean vocals

Yeah, and it was really good, like a solid 4.
I'm really excited because they have another 2 upcoming releases for this year.

I completely agree with Spirit, there's been plenty of great metal this year. I'm not disappointed at all.
