I didn't make a list at the end of 2011, but I can say it would've been radically different than this one since I heard six of these this year.
1. Vastum - Carnal Law (An EP, but too fucking good)
2. Disma - Towards the Megalith
3. Vektor - Outer Isolation
4. Big Chocolate - Hi-Lion (An EP, but really fucking good)
5. Exhumed - All Guts, No Glory
6. The Black Dahlia Murder - Ritual
7. War Master - Pyramid of the Necropolis
8. In Defence - Party Lines and Politics
9. Harms Way - Isolation
10. Cannabis Corpse - Beneath Grow Lights Thou Shalt Rise

12/21 Harm's Way
12/31 Crowbar ?
1/17 Michael Schenker ?
