Top 5 Most Disappointing (metal) Albums Of 2008

Ok, so I've never been a huge fan but this album was utter ****. By far the worst album I've heard this year.
2In Flames
A Sense of Purpose

It's not such a terrible album but it gets old and boring very quick. Despite the promising "Come Clarity", this is just a step too far into mainstream mediocreness!
3 Hate Eternal
Fury & Flames

"I, Monarch" is one of my favourite death metal albums from the last few years. This, however, is just a standard death metal album which just tries to batter you senseless. There are some good tracks but on the whole it's distinctly average and lacking in ambition. No use of didgeridoos or whatever other weird instruments they used in "I, Monarch" to make it stand out. Very samey, too.
4Heaven Shall Burn
Iconoclast (Part I:The Final Resistance)

"Deaf to our Prayers" was amazing and I really expected them to build on that but this record was uninspiring. It started off promising enough but it's ridiculously top heavy and the rest of the album is forgettable. On thw whole still pretty good but I expected much, much more.
The Way of all Flesh

My disappointment stems not from my own personal expectations but from the way most people had talked about this album. I found it incredibly boring. I'm not denying the fact they're good musicians but the songwriting just needs to improve. Plus, the album dragged on for ages and every track to my annoyance had 30 seconds of white noise/pointless acoustics at the end. I'm sorry but I don't get what all the fuss is about. It's not heavy and it's not catchy at all. I'm listening to Beneath the Massacre right now and think it's more catchy than this!
