(Here’s a teaser from TheMadIsraeli . . .)

This listmania shit is interesting isn’t it?  Some of the picks I’ve seen on a lot of the lists posted here from other sites haven’t surprised me, but some have for sure.  But now I think it’s time to help get the ball rolling on the NCS lists.

Picking my top 10 for this year has been a rather brutal internal struggle for me.  I know what the top of the year group is — it’s been the same pool of 15 albums thus far, but the order keeps slightly changing.  But I figured I’d reveal those 15, and allow my final list of 10 to be a surprise.  Actually, I will not be doing a list per se, but instead I plan to write a review (if I haven’t already done so) or write a “second opinion” (if I did review it) for each of the final 10.  I hope you’ll find this interesting.

So, here are the 15 candidates . . .

Sylosis Edge of the Earth


Fleshgod ApocalypseAgony

DecapitatedCarnival Is Forever

VaderWelcome to the Morbid Reich

Uneven StructureFebruus


RevocationChaos of Forms

VektorOuter Isolation

EvileFive Serpents Teeth

Threat Signal – S/T

FallujahThe Harvest Wombs

DemiseryHive of Mutation



Which 5 of these will be eliminated?  We’ll see.


  1. Harvest wombs has been on repeat since it came out. remarkable since Im more old school, that album just rules face.

  2. I’ve only heard 4 of these albums, and plan to listen to about 5 more of them before year’s end. Outer Isolations is probably my Album of the Year.

  3. If this was last.FM, you and I would have very low music compatibility. That new Vader is a great album though

  4. As the year draws to an end, I realize how many albums I forgot to get.

    It’s going to be fun comparing everyone’s lists…I love the diverse range of musical tastes represented on this site!

  5. Interesting list, you’ve got my top 3 picks from the past year. It’ll be interesting to see if they make the final cut!

  6. Surprised that I haven’t seen Kartikeya on more lists.

  7. I’m saddened that As Blood Runs Black hasn’t made anyone’s list.

  8. Kartikeya – Mahayuga <—————————— This needs to be on more lists for 2011.
