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

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

Divine Code For The Comfort Of Cowards : Best Of Death Metal In 2011

No word from DM giants like Gorguts, Quo Vadis, Cryptopsy, Viraemia, The Faceless, Augury, Kronos, Martyr.Yet DM unleashed an entire fleet of some mighty monsters,minions,imps and all sort of decibel devils.

This list includes everything from Post-death to Old school death n roll records.I also kinda like slick production a little better, not that i despise the rough one.It depends on the what kind of vibe the album tries to convey.

1. Deceased - Surreal Overdose
2. Fleshgod Apocalypse - Agony
3. Ulcerate - The Destroyers Of All
4. Monumental Torment - Element Of Chaos
5. Baring Teeth - Atrophy

Coolingsrock's List Of Technicalities And Progressiveness

Technical and Progressive albums. Pretty much alphabetical order. comment for suggestions. If I added a band but didn't put all the albums, its because I never got around to listening to their complete discography or didn't find it technical or progressive.

Other good albums that didn't make it to the list:

1. After The Burial - Rareform
2. Allegaeon - Elements Of The Infinite
3. Animals As Leaders - Animals As Leaders
4. Animals As Leaders - Weightless
5. Animals As Leaders - The Joy Of Motion
