The years have come and gone, and yet for some odd reason I still receive requests for my 'Best Of' journal entries in Heavy Metal, as well as several other genres. Why I still receive these requests I have no idea, but I've relented on being an e-seclusionist curmudgeon and eternally lazy long enough to post my Best in Heavy Metal of 2011 list. I hope whatever poor soul or bored last.fm troll that reads this dated meandering of metal finds something that they haven't otherwise heard or thought to listen to since '11. Also, I encourage any suggestions for albums released in 2011 that I've omitted as it's painfully obvious from my list that I can't possibly listen to everything out there.
Journal entries for 2012 and 2013 are forthcoming. No, for real this time.

10 jan. 2011, 20h47m par hurricane_marioRIP this journal. Here's the upcoming releases I actually care about:
Dream Theater - A Dramatic Turn Of Events
Devin Townsend - Ghost 2 (September)
Nightwish - Storytime (Single September, Album December)
Old Silver Key (Alcest) - Tales of Wanderings (Sept 16)
We Came As Romans - Understanding What We've Grown To Be (9/13/11)
Angels & Airwaves - LOVE PART 2 (11.11.11)
Lunar Aurora - ? (December, hopefully!)
1) Format is "Artist - Album (Genre) (Best songs, if I so choose)"
2) Note that these ratings are based on the album as a whole, not individual songs. This includes production quality, how cohesive all of the songs sound, etc. I definitely prefer concept albums, which progress through a story or similar type of thing.
3) You will note I have a fairly eclectic taste in music. The fact is, if I listened to the album in it's entirety, it's going in here. If I couldn't finish, it's 2.5 or below, or not in here. Also (obviously) if it's bad it's 2.5 or below.

31 jui. 2010, 2h02m par Thorakil1.How did you get into 29? (Saltus)
Seen at gig.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? (Swallow the Sun)
Don't Fall Asleep (Horror Pt. 2)
3. What's your favorite lyric by 33? (Besatt)
Your words were not forgotten
They still echo in my mind
With the wave and hum of the sea
With the lightning in the sky
from Son Of Pure Viking Blood
4. How did you get into 49? (Burzum)
While getting into black metal
5. How many albums by 13 do you own? (Metallica)
Kill'em all ;)
6. What is your favorite song by 43? (Rootwater)
7. Is there a song by 39 that makes you sad? (Therion)
Hard to say, it's been a long time since I last listened to them. As I remember Quetzalcoatl is kinda afflicting.
8. What is your favorite song by 15? (My Dying Bride)
Oh, there are undoubtedly a lot of great songs by them, hard to pick one.
9. What is your favorite song by 5? (Summoning)
Same as above, they have a lot of good songs but I think I would pick Land of the Dead.

1 avr. 2010, 2h06m par Coffinwood_MillWell, it's April Fool's Day, and I'm just now getting my Best of 2009 list up. Like last year, there seems to be a trend forming. Anyway, those of you who are actually interested, feel free to comment, criticize, and suggest any albums that you may have heard that I might have missed in any of the heavy metal or hard rock genres.
I'm open to any listening suggestions!
Also, if you are interested in other genres of music aside from heavy metal, feel free to visit my Best of 2009 journal entries on Neofolk / Martial / Dark Ambient styles, as well as my entry on Indie / Electronic / Etc.

1.)Katatonia - "Night Is The New Day"
Night Is The New Day is a rather controversial choice for my number one metal album, and in some ways it is out of place. It’s not exactly the most aggressive or original work they have released to date…
