Converge being #1 is surprising, but then again it's not. It was good, but not that good.

Also, no UFOmammut is ridonkulous.

Still, lots of great stuff on there. More than I would have expected, even.
9/2 Chelsea Wolfe
10/16 Kylesa / Inter Arma / Indian Handcrafts / Irata
11/13 Windhand / Monolord
12/30 Clutch

My favorite metal album of the year is "Kentucky" by Panopticon, surprised that its on there.

I am surprised that I actually have heard the majority of the list. I remember last year I was so behind in music that I had to play the top 40 decibel list of 2011 just to get a feel of what I missed. The only album I haven't heard in the top 10 is Witchcraft.

Surprised to see Swans on there. I'll probably give a few of these albums I haven't heard yet a listen.

(still need to check Panopticon) All these will be on my list tho. Early Graves is a must for all you dudes that like Crust/Grind/Death/Black all rolled into a hxc band.

George W. Bush is the son of a swine. I hope that one day his body is identified by the teeth marks on my penis.
