Love It All - 30 Fave Releases Since Y2K

Howzat, two of my all-time fav releases recently turned 10 and 5 years old. They should get anniversary reissues. Make those great bands some more dough, among other things...

Numbers 10 and 28 on this list are so good, I can't really pick favourite songs. Could say that Sons' opening number is a bit forgettable, and The Difference Engine's fourth track might be just a bit too weird for me. Still, I score 'em at around 98 point two. Best possible result, eh?

1. Fatboy Slim - Halfway between the Gutter and the Stars
2. Queens of the Stone Age - Rated R
3. Offspring - Conspiracy of One
4. Eidolon - Nightmare World
5. Muse - Origin of Symmetry

On Musical Taste Evolution...

Some days ago, by looking at some threads on MS regarding "how did you get into metal?" and such, I thought it would be interesting to see how my musical tastes changed over time and how one style took me to listen to another. I also thought I'd share it with you since I got the idea from here.

1. Evanescence
2. Linkin Park
3. Metallica
4. Tool
5. Nightwish

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

Best Brutal Death/Slam Albums the Past 5 Years

Here are my favorite Brutal Death Metal, Technical Brutal Death Metal, and Slam Death Metal albums as of 3-31-2012. I've limited my list to releases over the last 5 years, though most will be recent releases. If you like the genres included in this list, these are albums that I think are absolute must-haves. They are simply my favorite. Some are raw, up-and-coming acts while others are more proven, established bands. The bottom line is: these are the best albums I've found under the umbrella of the 3 genres I've mentioned. I'll attempt to leave out (intentionally) some of the more recognizable names that I feel fit into the Death Metal category better than the three I mentioned, such as Dying Fetus or Severe Torture. I want to feature lesser-known bands that really push the boundaries into the most brutal territories of Death Metal. For now, top-15 to top-20 is likely where I'll cut this off, but I may add more as I realize some may have been missed or simply newly found.

1. Begging For Incest - Orgasmic Selfmutilation
2. Abysmal Torment - Omnicide
3. Abnormity - Irreversible Disintegration
4. Abominable Putridity - The Anomalies Of Artificial Origin
5. Chordotomy - The Precious Ideal
