15 Best Metal This Year

I'm not happy with my 07 list so I'm splitting up the thing into 2 lists, metal and non-metal.
1Wolves In the Throne Room
Two Hunters

Amazing black metal that greatly perfected from their last release.

Drudkh as always deliver a superb slab of atmospheric black metal.
To the Nameless Dead

With this release Primordial sound as powerful as ever, vocals improved a lot too.
V: Havitetty

Excellent viking metal, even if the songs are extremely long!
5 Sigh
Hangman's Hymn

Different, crazy and wonderful, I just can't get enough of this album.
Circadian Rhythm

A very high quality release from these Belgians, with great varied vocals and awesome keyboards.
7 Kroda
??????? ????&#

Pagans have a way of making some super black metal, and with this release Kroda prove they still have it.
Given to the Rising

Crushing and at times even awe inspiring, an excellent post-metal album.
9 Lunar Aurora

Lunar Aurora stay consistent as always, too bad we won't be hearing this band put out more superb black metal for awhile.
Victory Songs

Even with Jari gone Ensiferum can still make some great, catchy viking metal.
Spiritual Apocalypse

Awesome death metal, great vocals and very good drumming.
Solens Rotter

More folk influenced then some of there more recent albums, and it turned out very nice.
13 Kauan

A rather unknown gem with some seriously good folk influences without overdoing it.
14Iced Earth
Framing Armageddon (Something Wicked Pt. 1)

Stormripper proves he has some great vocals and that Iced Earth have not lost it.
15 Astrofaes
Idea. Form. Essence...

Just got this today but it's really great. A side project of Drudkh's Thurios that goes in a more raw direction than Drudkh.
