12.30.06 Top 10 Albums Of Metal Of 2006

Very Best Of Rock/metal Of 07

Heres what I think are the top 20 albums of this year.
1Between the Buried and Me

We all knew that BTBAM could mix it up with prog rock, Metalcore and Death metal. This album does that plus adds 10 more genres of music, just to prove they are better than everyone else. Best Song: "Ants Of The Sky"
2Novembers Doom
The Novella Reservoir

Probably my favorite Death/Doom album of all time, hits the perfect spot of heavy and soft songs. Best Song: "Drown the Inland Mere"
3The Black Dahlia Murder

Amazingly impressive album that really grew on me after time. His vocals are incredable on this cd, and your normal awesome TBDM solos and riffs. Best Song: "Noctunal"
4The Red Chord
Prey For Eyes

Another awesome album by the Death/Grind act, this time little more melodic. Best Song: "Send The Death Storm"
5Porcupine Tree
Fear Of A Blank Planet

The best Prog Rock band again delievers with another amazing album, this includeing a crazy 17 minute song. Best Song: "Way Out Of Here"
6As I Lay Dying
An Ocean Between Us

The most impressive album of the year, As I lay Dying went from a decent band with a great drummer to a great album. Best Song: "The Sound of Truth"
7Arch Enemy
Rise Of The Tyrant

Finally these guys get back to their glory days of Wages of Sin. The brutal vocals and the catchy riffs make one incredable cd. Best Song: "The Last Enemy"
Sea of the Dying Dhow

The best debut cd of the year, excellent sound of progressive Metalcore. best Song: "The Conference of the Birds"
The Alchemy Index: Vols. I and II...

After a below average attempt last cd, this album more than makes up for it. It was make shocker of 2007, didn't expect this kind of work from these guys. Best Song: "The Whaler"
Shadows Of The Sun

Awesome follow up to Blood Inside, a lot more mellow, and not as spooky. best Song: "All The Love"
11Fair To Midland
Fables From a Mayfly

This is awesome Progressive Alternative Rock, the vocals are different, with some interesting lyrics, and creative song writeing. Best Song: "Tall Tales Taste Like Sour Grapes"
12Devil Sold His Soul
A Fragile Hope

Never heard of this band till this album came out, and it got more and more addicting the more I listened to it. Best Song: "As The Storm Unfolds"
13Job For A Cowboy

I know a lot of people will disagree but I found this to be the catchiest Death Metal ever, the grove riffs are just awesome. I also was impressed they didn't fall into the hardcore scene, they went against it. Best Song: "Embedded"
Dark Passion Play

The new vocals were a slight improvement, but what made this a great cd was the orchestra and the song writeing. Every song was so different, and very impressive. Best Song: "The Islander"
Nothing Less, Nothing More

This band is rather unknown, they mix clips from movies and play a death/grind style that is addicting. Best Song: "Skip The Break Up Get To The Make Up"
16Becoming The Archetype
The Physics Of Fire

This band has been on the border with me on likeing them, but this cd put them over that fence. The guitars got a lot more melodic, which is always a plus. Best Song: Epoch of War (The Physics of Fire - Part III)
17The Pax Cecilia
Blessed Are the Bonds

Another Debut album(I think) that was very impressive. I just randomly stumbled on them in these Reviews and was quite impressed. Best Song: "The Tomb Song"
18Pig Destroyer
Phantom Limb

Awesome Grindcore album, with a little more melodic feel to it, and thrash influcense. Definitly one of my favorite albums by this Grindcore Act. Best Song: "Alexandria"
19A Plea For Purging
A Critique of Mind and Thought

A band probably no one knows, This Metalcore act has very impressive guitars in which I would never get enough of. Best Song: "Death Has Been Swallowed Up In Victory"
20Paradise Lost
In Requiem

This album was not something I was totally looking into, but then someone recommended it to me and loved it. Best Song: "The Enemy"
