08:09 - BlueMobius Just got my tickets for the Decibel Magazine tour! :D
07:14 - ScreamingSteelUS My top choice was Persefone's "Spiritual Migration." Next was In Vain's new album, and after that I couldn't decide between Amon Amarth and Children of Bodom. Omnium Gatherum's I liked.
06:31 - AngelofDeth also think it was the fact that not much else came out that was good. Beyond is Omnium's best yet so I gave my vote to them but damn it still not that great an album
05:52 - deadone My problem goes down to individual albums where songs blur into one tedious dirge
05:51 - Unhealer Wonder what would have happened if the staff hadn't nominated them. Would they still win as write-ins?
05:38 - ScreamingSteelUS I wouldn't go that far, but I agree they can be repetitive. For me, it's one of those cases of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." "Twilight of the Thunder God" may be my favorite, though.
Your list doesn't reflect my personal taste so I'm going to tell you that you need to get better at listening to music.
Alas it would appear to be the case. Given that I've listened to a significant majority of the top 100 most popular bands on MS, I must have a painfully limited listening to metal career. How can I hope to reach this guy's massive collection of 34, all of which I've heard or am imminently planning to do so? D:
P.S. Sorry Mr First Poster, I'm sure you've got a very valid point, but I do spend a significant majority of my time listening to metal albums trying to widen my listening horizons, so just because I like Trivium and Avenged Sevenfold doesn't mean I'm entirely unaware of the world of metal, I have managed to work myself through over 1000 in my hopeless quest to listen to all that metal has to offer, so just because some of my choices are untr00, please don't think I know nothing of metal. Plus I'd probably change about 1/3 of this list at least nowadays anyway.
