Worst Metal Album of 2011?
 
What do you think is the worst metal album of this year. I've narrowed it down to the few I've noticed got the most negative reception. Maybe a few of these aren't really metal albums but you know what I mean.

The worst albums are rarely the highest profile. Lulu was awful but at least it was challenging and fostered debate.

Arafel's "For Battles Once Fought" was the worst album I heard all year. Children of Bodom worship with paper-thin orchestral elements. Fucking dreadful.

In Waves gets my vote.

Where's the "all of the above" button?

The only thing "challenging" about Lulu was how challenging it is to listen to more than one song without setting fire to it.

Countless interesting, entertaining pieces were written about [I]Lulu[/I]. Can't say the same for most of what I heard this year.

There have been good movies about the Holocaust too ;)


Okay, maybe I took that too far :lol:

Listen, Lulu is an indefensible album from an artistic standpoint and all but unlistenable (although I can stand behind Junior Dad, legitimately like that song a lot), but I'll take something that makes Chuck Klosterman write the best music piece he's done in a year over the thousandth "really heavy, but also really melodic" ninth-rate Pantera/Slayer composite. Don't feel ashamed to say so.

None of these were the worst album of this year, because genuinely, did anyone here really expect them to be any better than what they turned out to be? My opinion aside, I can safely say most of these records weren't exactly expected to achieve much by this board.

My vote goes to In Waves, very disappointing turn from a band that up to this point I've really enjoyed.
