As far as keeping up with new releases this year goes, I have given up. I probably won't even be able to make a best of list. I don't know what it is but I just haven't had the drive to keep up with new releases this year.
6/16 Geto Boys
7/21 Aeon/Cattle Decapitation/Revocation
8/27 Wintersun/FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE
