Albums that I am legitimately surprised didn't make the top 10 (or 20, for that matter):
1. Fucked Up - David Comes to Life
I personally don't see the appeal to this band whatsoever. They wouldn't have a snowball's chance in hell of making my top 100 for the year. However, quite a few people ranked them awfully high and I'm very surprised they're not on the list.
2. Landmine Marathon - Gallows
How in the fuck did this (not) happen!?!?! Once again, I didn't vote for it. But still, this site may as well have as many faps as the Official Grace Perry Dot Com. Unbelievable.
3. Russian Circles - Empros
When this album first leaked, it may as well have been the new Alcest the way people were jizzing themselves over it. Where'd the love go?
4. Fleshgod Apocalypse - Agony
As tremendously mediocre as it is, this album has somehow caught a lot of attention this year. I'm amazed that it didn't work it's way into the top 20... did all the Fleshgod Advocates listen to this album too many times and finally realize there's little here to be desired?
10.01 Sonata Arctica
11.03 King Diamond
01.22 70000 Tons of Metal
01.27 Dark Tranquillity
