1. Norther - N
Definitely the most underrated album of the year, it has those fins move to a somewhat more heavy metal sound, resulting in a density of hymns rarely reached on an album with songs like 'down', 'black gold' or the shamelessly catchy 'we rock'. Even better, the limited version gets the EP as bonus, which closes 'N' on an epic note.
2. Machinae Supremacy - Overworld
3. Raunchy - Wasteland Discotheque
Modern? Check. Commercial? Check. Catchy? Check. Danceable? Check. One of the best releases 2009? CHECK!
4. Metallica - Death Magnetic
Somewhat overshadowed by the discussion about its production, I can't help but give these guys a thumbs up for trying really hard to produce a blueprint of a Metallica record by merging most styles of their past together. Oh, yes, and the production SUCKS. ;)
5. Into Eternity - The Incurable Tragedy
6. Equilibrium - Sagas
7. Scar Symmetry - Holographic Universe
8. The Wandering Midget - The Serpent Coven
9. Eluveitie - Slania
10. Die Happy - VI
11. Dark Age - Minus Exitus
12. Moonspell - Night Eternal
13. Meshuggah - obZen
14. Opeth - Watershed
15. Ayreon - 01011001
16. Vader - XXV
17. The Puritan - Lithium Gates
18. Tankard - Thirst
19. Satyricon - The Age Of Nero
20. Alghazanth - Wreath Of Thevetat
21. ~~~ LETDOWN OF THE YEAR: ~~~
22. Cryptopsy - The Unspoken King
"The St.Anger of Death Metal"... its reputation probably preceeds this album already. But you have no idea how bad it is until you're bored enough to put it on from start to finish, like I did in my car. And, wow, this one really sucks.
