Best Album From Each Year

Unfinished as I still have to catch up on more recent years. Also all of the places on the list are of course subject to change as I discover more music from each year.

My taste is very much centred around the power of the riff. That means most of the albums on this list are thrash, death, heavy, black, or some offshoot of those genres.

1. After The Burial - Dig Deep
2. Behemoth - The Satanist
3. Carcass - Surgical Steel
4. Cattle Decapitation - Monolith Of Inhumanity
5. Fleshgod Apocalypse - Agony

My Journey Into Death Metal - 15 Albums That Brought Me Into The Genre

I've been a fan of metal music for a little over five years now. For most of that, I've just not liked death metal. It simply failed to hook me, and I simply preferred black, doom, etc

Over time, though, I heard a few albums that slowly made me grow more interested in the genre, and ultimately led to me growing a curiosity, then an appreciation, for the style. Anyways, this is the sequence of albums that got me hooked on exploring death metal, and what I would play for anyone I was trying to introduce the style to.

1. Amon Amarth - With Oden On Our Side
2. Hypocrisy - Abducted
3. Opeth - Still Life
4. Novembers Doom - The Pale Haunt Departure
5. Septicflesh - Communion

I feel great. is rarely the case. So - what have I consumed, to put this diamond-in-the-rough smile on my dial? For once, no junk. No crap. No chips, no lollies, no chocolate bars, no Great White Bread. No shark either - but indeed, some fantastic fish.

1. Anata - Under a Stone with No Inscription
2. Bloodbath - The Fathomless Mastery
3. Cryptopsy - None So Vile
4. Death - Scream Bloody Gore
5. Entombed - Left Hand Path

Best Of 2010

I rated 1st Place 10/10; 2nd-6th Place 9/10 and 7th-24th Place 8/10. So it was kind of hard for me to create this list, because there are many albums with a same ranking. There is some arbitrariness in there especially around the 12th-20th place.

1. Opeth - In Live Concert At The Royal Albert Hall
2. Solution .45 - For Aeons Past
3. Asphyx - Live Death Doom
4. Misery Index - Heirs To Thievery
5. At The Gates - Purgatory Unleashed

Momo's Weird Picks Of 2010

2010 has come and gone...
It was a pretty uneven year in metal, with average albums coming from great bands, and good, beautiful surprises popping up from unexpected corners.
2010 was also quite a special year for me - music-wise at least. Thanks to Ivor (yeah, you), a few weird reviews, and other factors, my tastes somehow exploded. Not that it was a surprise, this was already an event in the making. But still. Plus, a year that sees the release of two life-changing albums (whether personally or because they change how you see music) is always a good thing...

1. Orphaned Land - The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR
2. Shining (NOR) - Blackjazz
3. Enslaved - Axioma Ethica Odini
4. Killing Joke - Absolute Dissent
5. Agrypnie - 16[485]
