  • Seventh Church I: 2010 in Death Metal

    31 Dec 2010, 18:35 by orsagnion

    I asked some colleagues of mine if I ought to wait to publish this until the Eve of 2011, and despite their answers, I waited as long as possible anyway. With bands we know to be excellent slated to release full-lengths before the end of the year, I couldn't bring myself to potentially skip them. Now that it is that Eve, and I still haven't gotten a hold of any of those releases, I'm pressing on.

    To appear on this list, releases must meet the following criteria.

    01 · Must be a full-length release.

    Simple enough; LPs only, for reasons other than trying to qualify all the great demos and EPs released this year would have gutted me—but mostly for that reason.

    02 · Must be originally released in 2010.

    I hate this rule the most, but it is necessary to preserve fairness and prevent data pollution. Even 2010 re-pressings by the same band or label to a different format are disqualified.

    03 · Limit one release per band member per band.
