I can name 2. but not until the end of the year.

The Hunter is number 3 on my list.

I won't be shocked if Mastodon wins or doesn't win. The reception on The Hunter hasn't been as strong as it was for Crack The Skye, but it has gotten a strong enough reaction to make a run for the top spot. Like I said the other day in the Now Playing thread, there are so many albums (from just about every subgenre of metal) that have gotten an extremely postive reception this year that it's going to be really hard to predict what albums will finish in the Top 10. If I was a gambler, I would say Symphony X, Mastodon, Opeth(though it won't finish as high as past Opeth albums have), and Vektor are the only locks for the Top 10 this year.

If there is any justice in this world whatsoever, Mastodon will not win. The album is just not that damn good, people. It has good moments, yes, but fucking c'mon. That would be so weak. Having said that, it might actually win because of the way we do the voting. It'll get lots of points because it will likely be somewhere on many people's lists, but hopefully not at the top of many. Oh well - whatever happens, happens.

Couldn't have said it better myself. Just listened to it again today, found myself getting really bored at times, and really into it at others. If it gets voted as say, even in the top 5, it's because of the name on the album cover. If "Band X" had released The Hunter, nobody would even be talking about it.

I disagree in the case of The Hunter (I fucking love it and think it is deserving of all the praise it gets), but I do agree that certain bands on here get high spots on the year-end list just because of who they are (**coughcough Iron Maiden winning album of the year last year**).

It's in my top 10 for sure. Love every song on there save for maybe the very last song.

I feel like SX is the best bet for being at least top 2. Most mentions wins, it's popular and not dividing like other albums are.
