Most Talented Vocalists In Metal

A concise list of my metalhead man-crushes (now featuring ladies.)

While there is little introduction required for some of these bands and their frontmen/women, there are no words that can accurately describe such jaw-dropping talent anyhow. The albums and youtube links listed are meant to display the full capacity of vocalists' talents, not the bands' most quality or popular tracks - click the links below and behold the prowess.

1. Adagio - Underworld
2. Akercocke - Words That Go Unspoken, Deeds That Go Undone
3. Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors
4. Amorphis - Silent Waters
5. Blind Guardian - At The Edge Of Time

MMXII: Ranking The "Final" Year's Albums

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. Royal Thunder - CVI
2. Ancestors - In Dreams and Time
3. Hail Spirit Noir - Pneuma
4. Hidden Orchestra - Archipelago
5. Merrimack - The Acausal Mass

2012 Musical Perusals

My list of favourites and interests for this year ordered roughly in descending order. My new years resolution is to branch out a bit and listen to new and unfamiliar genres, metal and non-metal.

Edit: Anything above about a 7/10 I'll keep here. Now with approximate rating in a .5 scale and ordered according to **replay value** i.e how often I listen to them. AND now with some comments, adding them gradually.

1. Enslaved - RIITIIR
2. Pharaoh - Bury The Light
3. Anglagard - Viljans Öga
4. Overkill - The Electric Age
5. The Foreshadowing - Second World
