That Lord Vicar/Funeral Circle split is great.

Also, the point of putting links in is that many of us will be too lazy to look it up ourselves, and with a link we won't be lazy. I know you're thinking to yourself, "well, it's not my problem," and that's fair, but don't you want people to listen to the stuff on your lists? I know it's sad that so many of us won't even bother listening to this stuff if it doesn't have a link, but that's how it is.

That's precisely it, and I'm not encouraging laziness. I already know how lazy most people are here when something happens with a band and every goes "oh, had never heard of this band", when they'd been talked about on here months previous and they just didn't bother Googling.

Yeah, I want people to check these bands out, but if they don't... they don't get listen to cool stuff.

S'not like I'd be helping the bands out either, since most of the clowns here would just download it from some blog anyway.

Can you feel my cynicism coming out of your screen? I'm like a cynical version of the girl from 'The Ring'

Fair enough. I just don't understand why you'd go through the trouble of posting a list if you don't even care if people listen to it or not.

Pharaoh are actually from my general area (greater Philadelphia area, I believe) - but they never do anything or play shows so I don't even really think of them as being from around here. I've been recommended them before but never really got around to checking them out for real.

Because I've done my bit, same as the other lists (the onerg who don't just do it for the attention, by posting the recommendations and views, it's up to you whether you take people up on it or not. That's the point of doing it. Catering for laziness isn't. If you want to be lazy, fine, but you miss out on great music and people who can be bothered to make an effort don't.

People who want to be spoonfed are no better than pop radio fans. How much effort does it take to Google a Myspace page or whatever and hit play? Especially when browsers have built in Google now.

Give them a shot. The new EP is probably my favourite release by them. They're not especially varied, like most of their ilk, but they're good at what they do.

I actually just have YouTube open, so it's not hard at all, but I'm speaking on behalf of other people.

2011 in figures:

Recorded
Studio Albums/EPs heard: 139 *
Live Albums heard: 4
Live DVDs seen: 3

Live
Different bands seen: 114
From gigs seen: 64
And festivals attended: 2

I'm beginning to get my album list in order. Narrowed down to the 25 which are going to make the list (top 20 plus five honourable mentions), but no clue on order yet besides #1.

* Still a handful to listen to (pre-emptively included in the "albums heard" figure above), but not expecting any of them to dislodge anything from my top 25. There's a chance other things will be heard before the year finishes too.

Top 5 Live Releases of 2011

There are only a handful of factors which make a live release worth purchasing, and they apply to pretty much everything.

a) Sound quality (+video quality if it's a DVD)
b) Song selection
c) How many other live releases the band has, and how similar they are
d) They're probably only of interest to existing fans

Additionally, DVDs also have
e) Quality of performance/show/pyro etc. - this rarely matters on a live CD
f) Whether or not the concert has been fucked with (stupid effects, interruptions with backstage footage/interviews, etc.)

Therefore, no point really highlighting anything extra about each of these as they all have positives in each of the areas above, and review links are provided. All of these are highly recommended for anyone already a fan of these bands:

Homegrown: Alive In Lugano (CD+DVD/2LP)

OK, after much deliberation my top 20 is finally nailed down now that I've eliminated my final decision.

There's still some minor placing ordering to work out, but I can definitely now kick off with my honourable mentions. I honestly thought a few of these would make the top 20. There's some damn good stuff here.

Not in any particular order:

Venom - Fallen Angels
Evangelist - In Partibus Infidelium
Demon's Eye - The Stranger Within
Jon Amor Blues Group - Jon Amor Blues Group
Destruction - Day of Reckoning
Grifter - Grifter
Onslaught - Sounds of Violence
Firebird - Double Diamond
Flotsam & Jetsam - The Cold
Havok - Time Is Up
Castle - In Witch Order
Surtr - World of Doom
Doogie White - As Yet Untitled
Memory Driven - Animus
Overdrive - Angelmaker
DoomDogs - Unleash The Truth
Fastway - Eat Dog Eat
U.S. Christmas - The Valley Path
Pombagira - Iconoclast Dream
Premonition 13 - 13
Pylon - Armoury of God
J.D. Overdrive - Sex, Whiskey & Southern Blood
Leather Nun America - Kult Occult
The Flight of Sleipnir - Essence of Nine
