16. Pallbearer - Sorrow and Extinction
This album got tons of hype this year, and for some reason albums that have this much acclaim never resonate with me. This one is much different. The debut from this Little Rock, AR doom band is one of the best doom albums I have heard in a LONG time. The songs are all pretty long, but they are like long journeys or sorrow, and I mean that in the best way. Lots of emotion in this album, and many will probably criticize me for not ranking it closer to the top. But, there were so many good ones this year; this one definitely lives up to the hype though.
