With the release calendar coming to a close in the next couple of months, I think the time has come to formulate our "Best of" lists for this year.
I'll admit, I was kind of surprised by several of the albums that came out this year. Killer releases by established veterans, up and coming acts rising up from the underground, and other surprising finds. Here are some of mine (yes, in some kind of order)...
1) Katatonia- Dead End Kings
2) Barren Earth- The Devil's Resolve
3) Between the Buried and Me- The Parallax II: Future Sequence
4) Gojira- L'Enfant Sauvage
5) Meshuggah- Koloss
6) Daylight Dies- A Frail Becoming
7) The Contortionist- Intrinsic
8) Swallow the Sun- Emerald Forest and the Blackbird
9) Allegaeon- Formshifter
10) The Foreshadowing- Second World
11) Stealing Axion- Moments
12) Periphery- Periphery II: This Time It's Personal
13) Be'lakor- Of Breath and Bone
14) Kamelot- Silverthorn
15) Epica- Requiem for the Indifferent
That's how it stands, right now. There are more, but these lists always shift for me...we'll see how this one changes.
Alright, enough from me. Now, it's your turn...
