1. Krisiun - The Great Execution
2. Trap Them - Darker Handcraft
3. Woods Of Desolation - Torn Beyond Reason

2011 Selections

Each year countless of albums come out. This is obviously by no means a definitive guide because as of 14/12/2011, I've only heard 364 releases from 2011, but do check these albums out if you haven't already! Feel free to throw stuff at my direction. In a rough order right now and rankings get rearranged every now and again. Will be trimmed around again in January / February. Note that I still have plenty to check out though.

1. Terra Tenebrosa - The Tunnels
2. Esoteric - Paragon Of Dissonance
3. Born Of Osiris - The Discovery
4. The Psychic Paramount - II
5. Flourishing - The Sum Of All Fossils

MMXI: Handpicked by MechanisT

Best (and worst) of 2011 (thus far).
Partially ordered (thus far).
Subject to change, as I see fit.

What a wonderful year, I have to say! This year has seen me expand my tastes like never before. Discovered so many great new acts, while many metal stalwarts delivered the goods as expected. A truly memorable year, and one that I will forever cherish, as far as me being an avid music enthusiast is concerned.

1. Septicflesh - The Great Mass
2. Omnium Gatherum - New World Shadows
3. Sylosis - Edge Of The Earth
4. Heavenwood - Abyss Masterpiece
5. Insomnium - One For Sorrow
