Not a bad effort from a metalcore band I can actually tolerate, but I thought Unearth's 2011 album was much better than this.

Mastodon - The Hunter
Come at me, Mastofans. I love this band, and this album definitely had its moments, but the experimental tracks on here just ruined it for me because I didn't like them and it made the album seem like it was somewhat slapped together.

Revocation - Chaos of Forms
I loved their previous album. I'm either over these guys already, or this album was inferior to "Existence Is Futile". The problem is, I don't care enough about them to figure it out anymore. Damn shame, that - but at the end of the day I just felt I had better music to spend my time on in 2011 than this.

Exhumed - All Guts, No Glory
See "Decapitated - Carnival is Forever".

Skeletonwitch - Forever Abomination
Better than their last, but failed to excite me the way "Beyond the Permafrost" did. These guys were surprisingly "meh" when I saw them open for Obscura last summer, too.

EDIT: My wager is that maybe half of these may have ended up in my top forty somewhere...
