(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
Xerath – II
Fleshgod Apocalypse – Agony
Decapitated – Carnival Is Forever
Vader – Welcome to the Morbid Reich
Uneven Structure – Februus
Vildhjarta – Masstaden
Revocation – Chaos of Forms
Vektor – Outer Isolation
Evile – Five Serpents Teeth
Threat Signal – S/T
Fallujah – The Harvest Wombs
Demisery – Hive of Mutation
Kartikeya – Mahayuga
Textures – Dualism
Which 5 of these will be eliminated? We’ll see.
Harvest wombs has been on repeat since it came out. remarkable since Im more old school, that album just rules face.
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.
If this was last.FM, you and I would have very low music compatibility. That new Vader is a great album though
Okay, that came off far snarkier than I meant it to be. Sorry about that
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!
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!
Surprised that I haven’t seen Kartikeya on more lists.
I’m saddened that As Blood Runs Black hasn’t made anyone’s list.
Kartikeya – Mahayuga <—————————— This needs to be on more lists for 2011.
