JokeR's Top Hunnid From 2010 - 2019

To commemorate the top 100 albums of 2010 - 2019 I thought I would follow suit and make a list of my own. This has been a very challenging task to say the least. As I reflected on the releases from the last 10 years, it became increasingly difficult to settle on album rankings. In the interest of getting my top 100 published I am potentially releasing the list a little prematurely. The top 30 or so are quite firm. I don't anticipate much change in those albums, however, there could be some mobility throughout the rest of the list.

1. Ulcerate - The Destroyers Of All
2. Esoteric - A Pyrrhic Existence
3. Un - Sentiment
4. Mournful Congregation - The Incubus Of Karma
5. Ulcerate - Shrines Of Paralysis

Old Nick's Top-30 Of 2019

This is the list of albums I had on heavy rotation during 2019. If an album was very good but way too long or demanding to listen to it more than twice, you won't see it here (e.g. Esoteric). I have limited attention span and favourite albums are called "favourite" because we keep listening to them non-stop. The order below is more or less accurate.

1. Atlantean Kodex - The Course Of Empire
2. Idle Hands - Mana
3. Diamond Head - The Coffin Train
4. Flotsam And Jetsam - The End Of Chaos
5. Numenorean - Adore

Phoenix Rising Through Fire: Top 10 Metal Albums Of 2019

Another year, another top 10, or should I say top 25 of the year. Plenty of good albums, but Månegarm, Borknagar and Insomnium without a doubt top albums of the year. Villagers of Ioannina City is a revelation of the year, and while it might not be "metal" definitely one of the top albums of this year. Blind Guardian is not bad, far from it, but I expected so much more from this album hence it (un)deservedly gets to bear the shame of the letdown, although it is a decent album. Maybe I expected too much from it. One of the bands that deserve more attention this year for certain is Croatian Old Night, a real masterpiece when it comes to doom. Another recommendation would be Serbian Svartgren with their new black metal album called Divlja Vatra, or Wildfire. The rest of it pretty much boils down to personal taste and preferences. Darkwater and Bloodbound were a very pleasant surprise when it comes to progressive and power metal respectively. When it comes to symphonic and progressive metal, Wilderun was another pleasant surprise, a band I discovered recently through metalstorm website..

1. Månegarm - Fornaldarsagor
2. Borknagar - True North
3. Insomnium - Heart Like a Grave
4. Beast in Black - From Hell With Love
5. Swallow the Sun - When a Shadow is Forced into the Light

Top 50 Metal Albums Of The 2010's

I will most likely look back at this decade as the dark ages of popular music. A time where mainstream music was largely dominated by talentless pop/hip hop music with less memorable songs than the previous decade. However, that doesn't mean that metal music followed the same path. While it was largely dominated by metalcore during the beginning of the decade, I started to grow to love more music in this decade for metal music than I initially did during the beginning of the decade. This was the decade where I became a metalhead, where I became who I am today and started expanding my horizons musically and learn to appreciate a lot of metal music released during this decade and that will be something I will look back at fondly. As the 2010's comes to a close, I decided to make a list of the top 50 metal albums of the decade that I would consider the best. NOTE: this list might change if I discover more music from this decade that I thought are amazing.

1. Trees of Eternity - Hour of the Nightingale
2. Kauan - Sorni Nai
3. Woods of Ypres - Woods 5: Grey Skies & Electric Light
4. Swallow the Sun - Songs From The North I, II & III
5. Deafheaven - Sunbather
