Copypasta from last year and the year before:


1. You can only vote for albums (or EPs or splits) of newly-recorded studio material that was released in the United States in 2011. This should pretty much be a given at this point
2. You still need 10 albums to get full credit for your #1. If you vote for 5 albums, your #1 is worth 5.

3. The new multiplier is as follows: if an album receives three or more votes, each voter gives two bonus points to that album. For example, an album given a 3rd, 5th, and 10th by three different voters would earn 8 points for the 3rd, 6 points for the 5th, 1 point for the 10th, and an additional 6 points (2 times 3) for the voter quantity multiplier. Algebra can be fun when metal is involved.

4. Please refrain from posting your top 50 or whatever here, and from posting images of the albums you're voting for. Start your own damn threads for that, it'll just clog the page if you do it here.

5. There is no "metal only" rule, as decided by the Metal Setlists electorate. Diversify if you wish.

6. Have fun and don't be afraid to argue. That's the point of this whole charade.

NOTE: If you've already started a thread of your own, still cast your vote in here or it won't count. I'm not gonna hunt and peck all over the board for your list.

If you have any questions, feel free to post em here.

You have until January 7th, 2012 to get 'em in!

Dude just give at least this release a chance. You will not regret it even if turn out not totally digging it. It's by far their most accessible release. Due to the production which is really raw and dry, and Mike's most distinguishable vocals to date. I know you love great guitar playing (the riffs especially.... :drool:), and huge hooks from what I've discovered from your posts. This record has this in spades man, it'll have you headbanging in no time and shouting along to the lyrics if you give it an honest chance. It's more of a progressive metal record filtered though doom metal.

Yeah. Probably one of my favorite discoveries of this year. I went to a show of theirs for the opening bands, but Yob put on the best set of the night. So fucking heavy...:drool:

You don't know how happy that makes me when people say that about their live show. I absolutely can't wait til I get to see them perform. How were the Atma songs live? I know a lot of people complain about the production on it, but I don't mind it. Everybody says live its a different story and they completely crush.

If it weren't for the fact that I've seen Sleep live, Atma would be hands down the heaviest shit ever live that I've experienced. You're in for quite a treat.

I consciously omitted all three of my top 10 non-metal picks simply due to the fact that I know that not one other person will elect any goddamned one of them.

That wouldn't be considered immoral, would it?

And BTW Brad, your Mastodon meme is absolutely correct ;) Too bad they didn't release Crack the Skye this year, then it would be warranted as well :lol:

Whoop whoop, ninja

I see you liked Wearing Out Our Welcome. I was disappointed by it, because I feel like it was kinda half-assed (by AxCx standards) and the lyrics were lazy. If the most shocking part of an Anal Cunt album is the fact that you used the word "nigger", you're doing it wrong. Tsunasum and Beating Up Niggers Who Sell Fake Crack were the only two tracks remotely worth anything imo.

I thoroughly enjoyed Fuckin' A though. Kinda wish it was their last one, and Seth's death would've tied in with the promotion rather nicely haha

Yeah I forgot that one. I'll be honest I was going to see them live and pounded that cd into my brain then heard Mark wasn't going to be there and blew the show off. Normally I'd forget about the cd but I found myself going back to it.

I think a lot of those songs even the slower ones like Powerless and Beyond the Grave would work well live. And that's coming for the guy who yells "PLAY SOME F'N FAST SHIT" at shows. hahaha

All caught up. Very interesting top 10-20.

And something I think is pretty cool, I think I've had to input at least one new band for each list, meaning there is lots of diversity this year!

It was one of those albums that I kept on playing throughout the year, I had to include it. I've heard the first one a few times, but haven't really absorbed it yet.
