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

2011 Suggestions For The Eclectic Metalhead

If you're like me and can't sit still with just one or two genres, perhaps you'll find some ideas in this list. I kept the variety with genres, but also by including all worthy bands from unknown newcomers all the way up to big names. Basically, everything I liked this year.

Since there are so many genres here, don't get too worked up about specific rating and placement. They're generally in order, but more importantly they're all amazing.

1. Silent Stream Of Godless Elegy - Návaz
2. Fair To Midland - Arrows & Anchors
3. Autumn - Cold Comfort
4. Shadowside - Inner Monster Out
5. 40 Watt Sun - The Inside Room

InnerDoom

The wide spectrum of sounds expressed through the sub-genre of Doom Metal often gets overshadowed by the somehow inaccessible slowness that is in its nature and so DM doesn't get the recognition it deserves for being, in my opinion, one of the most flexible subgenres of Metal ... Because of that, Doom Metal has remained among my favorite genres of music since the time I was introduced to it through My Dying Bride's "Turn Loose the Swans".

1. Esoteric - The Maniacal Vale
2. Saturnus - Martyre
3. Lacrimas Profundere - Memorandum
4. My Dying Bride - Turn Loose The Swans
5. Process Of Guilt - Erosion
