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's SILVERfox-compatible METAL

Another year, another favourites of the year list... But hopefully this will be more complete than the previous years ones. Rather than making a massive list of everything I have listened to, I'll be as selective as possible. I've only started listening to 2012 releases since February, so I'll be playing catch up throughout the year as my time is limited. I've only gone through 556 releases this year properly as of 07/01/2013, so the list can only expand! If you feel strongly about certain albums released this year and it's not here, be sure to leave a comment! Feel free to make a list that's exactly the same =P

1. CSSABA - Underground Lo-Fi Songs
2. Indesinence - Vessels Of Light And Decay
3. Monolithe - Interlude Second
4. Nadja - The Primitive World
5. In The Silence - A Fair Dream Gone Mad

Ordered from best to worst. Because listing it is easier than voting and much easier than voting twice.

Fear not, dear reader, I've only been neglecting the list, but not the music.

2. Carach Angren - Where the Corpses Sink Forever
3. Diablo Swing Orchestra - Pandora's Piñata
4. Enslaved - RIITIIR
5. Om - Advaitic Songs

2012 Dreamy Albums Milena Considers A 7.5+ (update 26.12)

Other good lists with some melodic metal in them:
strade's - R'Vannith's - Unhealer's - Lkoturnindrin's

Will only add 7.5+ releases, so this won't be a gargantuan list... last year saw maybe forty or so releases I thought of as 7.5+'s, a lot of them rated only at the end of the year, and some not rated at all due to the extensiveness of pre-MSA listening sessions... if you want to stalk my "bad" ratings, they're all in my album votes.

1. Enochian Theory - Life... And All It Entails
2. Dissona - Dissona
3. Big Big Train - English Electric 1
4. Headspace - I Am Anonymous
5. Beyond The Bridge - The Old Man And The Spirit

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
