Drum roll please...

As Pink once said, let's get this party started. In keeping with the pattern established in last year's thread, my first list is comprised of stuff I just didn't get a chance to listen to (but would have liked to do so). Also, rather than hold up the start of this thread, I knew I probably wouldn't get around to listening to them enough to give them a fair day in court, so I just thought I would mention them here so folks would know why these albums don't appear elsewhere in the thread.

Fifteen Albums That I Just Didn't Get Around to Listening To This Year (But Wanted To)
  • Abigail Williams - Becoming
  • Alcest - Les Voyages de l'Ame
  • Arsis - Leper's Caress (EP)
  • Black Sheep Wall - No Matter Where It Ends
  • Botanist - III - Doom in Bloom
  • Cattle Decapitation - Monolith of Inhumanity
  • Deathspell Omega - Drought (EP)
  • The Gathering - Disclosure
  • Hooded Menace - Effigies of Evil
  • Krallice - Years Past Matter
  • Kreator - Phantom Antichrist
  • Locrian & Mamiffer - Bless Them That Curse You
  • Sigur Ros - Valtari
  • Shining (Swe) - Redefining Darkness
  • Winterfylleth - The Threnody of Triumph

(Caveat: I actually did listen to a few of these, but not enough that I could render any sort of informed opinion.)

EDIT: I listened to bits and pieces of Arsis, DsO, Hooded Menace, Krallice and Winterfylleth and they all sounded pretty good...

EDIT2: Coming next...Five Albums That Straight Up Sucked / Pissed Me Off
9/2 Chelsea Wolfe
10/16 Kylesa / Inter Arma / Indian Handcrafts / Irata
11/13 Windhand / Monolord
12/30 Clutch
