Mai 2009 Top 20

Call me easily impressed or what, but 2009 has been an amazing year for metal releases for me. Being well into 2010, I had the chance to let everything sink in and the more memorable albums stand out more while certain release that had initially escaped attention could also be "auditioned". Having listened to over 230 releases, just narrowing down a list of top 30 has already been a challenge, but for an annual list to go over 20 kind of loses its purpose of recommendation, so I just tried even harder. At the same time, I allowed myself to cheat a little bit by using another list of overlooked albums and influential albums. Some that didn't quite make the cut: Bloodbound, Artillery, Delain, Fairyland, Dark Moor, Vomitory, Immortal, Paradise Lost, Amesoeurs, Skyfire, The 11th Hour, Process Of Guilt and Anaal Nathrakh

1. Thy Catafalque - Róka Hasa Rádió
2. Amorphis - Skyforger
3. Samael - Above
4. Sun Of The Blind - Skullreader
5. While Heaven Wept - Vast Oceans Lachrymose

Beginner's Guide To Building A Prog Collection (Standards, And A Few Unorthodox Choices)

1. Jethro Tull - Thick As A Brick
2. King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King
