Last night I got to see Vomitor from Australia, killer band, currently on tour in the usa, go see them if you get the chance!  I believe the lead guitarist and drummer are also in Portal, at least that's what someone told me last night, so there's that.  Awesome classic death/thrash!

So i think its about that time. I couldnt narrow it down to a top 10, but i managed a top 15. And this is all pre looking at other top 10 lists to see what ive missed. So just a list of the cds i discovered throughout the year. I think i might do another later, for the CDs i discover from looking at the lists, cuase i have already realized i have missed quite a few awesome albums.

 

Any to start it off at number 15

 

15. The Safety Fire - Grind the Ocean

 

14. Meshuggah - Koloss

 

13. Seven Kingdoms - The Fire is Mine

 

12. Deftones - Koi No Yokan

 

11. Soen - Cognitive

 

10. Anaal Nathrakh - Vanitas

 

9. Be'Lakor - Of Breath and Bone

 

8. Between the Burried and Me - The Parallax II: Future Sleep

 

7. Allegaeon - Formshifter

 

6. Kreator - Phantom Antichrist

 

5. Art by Numbers - Reticence: The Musical

 

4. Hypno5e - Acid Mist Tomorrow

 

3. Gojira - L'Enfant Sauvage

 

2. Chevelle - Hats Off to the Bull (yes i realize this came out at the end of last year, but i didnt start listening to it till this year, and its too damn good to not include on this list)

 

...and drumroll...the best metal CD of the year is

 

1. Katatonia - Dead End Kings

Check out Parkway Drive. Awesome band from Australia. Theyre pretty heavy, been listening to them for over a year now

I really like Parkway Drive's last 3 CDs, but i felt that Atlas wasnt quite up to par with the rest

oh its no contest, specially once I calculated in how much I actually listened to each cd, Katatonia ran away with it. I listened to Dead End Kings so freaking much this year. only Chevelle and Gojira were even close to as many plays

 

edit: and the weird part was, that you can go back and see, i wasnt that excited about it at first, but the more i listened the more i fell in love with it, as you can see in my rankings

Not brootal at all. But reminds me of Type Of Negative and Katatonia. Weirdly pleasant.

I've been listening to Menace Ruine for a while now but I never heard of this release. Really atmospheric and ritualistic. Love it. 

 

By the way! I loaded up some of the albums from my teens on the Clip+ when I was in Prague last week and totally rediscovered a band called Avrigus, gothic/doom with strong neofolk influences. Like a metal Dargaard or Arcana. Glorious yet soothing. Pure nostalgia. Lyrics are interesting as well. I used to listen to this album non stop more than a decade ago.
