2010-2014: Top 100 Albums (WIP)

2008 might've been my first proper taste of metal, with the acquisition of albums from the likes of Metallica, Megadeth, Black Sabbath and that most grandiose of gateway bands, DragonForce. 2009 might've seen me expanding my palette, with Iron Maiden, Alice In Chains, Avenged Sevenfold, and more entering my world, and Guns N' Roses triumphantly re-entering it. But 2010 was when I delved into more 'intense' stuff with Machine Head, In Flames, and most notably of all, Sylosis, and saw my relationship with metal shift from ever-increasing interest into full-blown love affair. To commemorate this 5-year anniversary, and because I love making lists, I decided to do a retrospective of the best albums and songs that have been released during this time period, and give brief tributes to them. Yay music!

1. Sylosis - Edge Of The Earth
2. Sylosis - Monolith
3. Protest The Hero - Volition
4. Orphaned Land - The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR
5. Be'lakor - Of Breath And Bone

2012: My Top 50

While I'm slightly disappointed the world didn't end this year, I thought I'd share my musical tastes from throughout the year by arbitrarily ranking other people's art. When the year began I was really into sludge and stoner but as the year has worn on, it's been the black metal releases which by and large have won my attention and appreciation.

1. Indesinence - Vessels of Light and Decay
2. Royal Thunder - CVI
3. Igorrr - Hallelujah
4. Desolate Shrine - The Sanctum of Human Darkness
5. Hidden Orchestra - Archipelago

My Favorite Atmospheric Black Metal Albums (WIP)

This is a favorites list, not a guide or anything of that sort. It just highlights the albums that I've enjoyed listening to and spinned extensively since last November (When I got into this monolithic genre.) One entry for each band. The descriptions aren't necessarily descriptions of the music. I just wrote what came to my mind. I will update with new albums frequently.
EDIT: Got to 50 entries, so I guess I'll stop for now. I want more time to revisit these 50, get into the other albums of the bands listed below and delve into other genres of metal. I guess that taking a break from black metal (at least new stuff) will ensure that I won't get bored of it. It is likely that I'll continue this list by the half of July.

1. A Forest Of Stars - Opportunistic Thieves Of Spring
2. Addaura - Burning For The Ancient
3. Agalloch - Pale Folklore
4. Alcest - Écailles De Lune
5. Alda - : Tahoma :

This Is Not A 2012 List

Too many 2012 lists around, you complain? You don't have to complain about this, though, it is NOT a 2012 list!

Previously, this list contained long-ass reviews, and distorted orders. But then this made people lose order and no one really reads what I write except about a handful of albums, so I decided to remove the X/10 rating system and use an "A-F" kinda stuff.

1. Rush - Clockwork Angels
2. Cytotoxin - Radiophobia
3. Overkill - The Electric Age
4. Gorod - A Perfect Absolution
5. Testament - Dark Roots Of Earth

2012 -- A Various Assortment of Delectable Delights... and Nasties.

Hey and welcome to my top albums of 2012! All these albums I think are absolutely awesome and definitely deserve to be on this list one way or another. This list may also change if i hear a better album which I think should be on this list. I know possibly a lot of the ratings don't match the other ratings I may have given it so I'm definitely trying to stomp out being too generous!

1. Anaal Nathrakh - Vanitas
2. Ørkenkjøtt - Ønskediktet
3. Cattle Decapitation - Monolith Of Inhumanity
4. Neurotech - Decipher Vol. 1
5. Wodensthrone - Curse
