WOW! This is the best list I've seen so far. My Top 3 are their Top 3 so they get respect for that. I would drop Suicide, Prada and Heaven & Hell but at least they're not being brutal just to out-brutal everyone else. Alice in Chains deserves it's spot and I laugh at these publications that dismiss it. That cd is pushing for Top 10 decade for me.
I'm listening to Coalesce now and it's Top 20 for sure. Not sure about Rammstien, Behemoth or BDM being that high but I can't argue with all 3 being top 20-25.
I've heard everything on this list except Kylesa and Dethklok. Hopefully I can get to them before the end of the year. 2009 musically will be talked about for years to come... if it's not just remembered for the "death" year.
