Top Albums Of The Past 12 Months (July '11 - July'12)

Well so far this year has been quite a let-down when it comes to quality metal. Many of you will probably disagree, but to each his own.

So in order for me to even make a list containing 10 entries I had to fetch them from a year ago which had some really fantastic post-July releases!

1. Vale of Pnath - The Prodigal Empire
2. Vildhjarta - Måsstaden
3. Circus Maximus - Nine

2010 Super Disappointment List

Here follows a short list of albums released in 2010, which did not live up to anything spectacular even if SOME of them showed so much promise based on previous releases. Some less disappointing/some more but they all vary in degrees of Anticipation and eventual Gut-wrenching heart ache.

NOTE: The albums with lowest disappointment factor appear last, progressively becoming more bad until you finally reach the most shockingly unfullfilling album of 2010

1. Dark Lunacy - Weaver Of Forgotten
2. Seventh Wonder - The Great Escape
3. Abigail Williams - In The Absence Of Light
4. Finntroll - Nifelvind
5. Arsis - Starve For The Devil

Top 20 Albums Of 2006

This was an epic year for metal in my eyes....The first time I ever heard Mirrorthrone and their "Carriers of Dust", is still one of the best releases of the 2000's. Pretty difficult list, because any of the top 5 could have made it to no.1 in any other given year and also features the best releases to date of those 5 bands.

1. Mirrorthrone - Carriers Of Dust
2. Scar Symmetry - Pitch Black Progress
3. Dark Lunacy - The Diarist
4. Týr - Ragnarok
5. Falconer - Northwind
