Comments mean nothing, if that were the case I'd have given up on mine since I started. You shouldn't do this to get comments, you should do it to get people to view it and take something out of it. Look at your views, they're super high. That's a good thing. I'm sure you do have that mentality, but don't just stop because of the lack of comments. I for one have looked at all of your posts when I have the chance, because even if I only enjoy 1% of everything posted, that's 1% that I would have never found otherwise. And frankly, the few that I've found have been very high quality (for the most part). You have some real diamonds in the rough in here.

Kill is also my favorite Cannibal Corpse record, but Torture wasn't anything too special. Scourge of Iron and Demented Aggression are great, but the rest of the album is just pretty good.

That's exactly why I keep doing this thread every year. Although it does get discouraging when people are actively on this thread and then stop. I actually didn't even look at the views until you mentioned it. DAAAAAAAAAAAAMN!

I'm not doing it for the comments, well I kinda am, but I am doing it for exactly what you said, to share good music people may not know about, even if it is 1% for some people. And it the whole basis behind my radio show. I'm glad to see you dig it as well.

I like it more than Evisceration Plague, and I thought that was a great album. Torture just does it for me.

I've been reading every post. Sorry that you haven't stirred much discussion, but you've led me to some cool stuff I hadn't heard or confirmed suspicions about shitty albums. Thank you for that. Keep it up, it's bean a valiant effort to cover all that music.

Sure thing. I mean I've only taken 5 out of the 200+ that you've posted, so you're at 2.5%-ish. That's not bad, I'm pretty uptight with my music so that's definitely a good thing. I'm looking forward to see if there's any other tricks up your sleeve, so to speak.

Thanks guys.

I just counted. I have give or take 150 albums left, including my top 20. I may take some out that I haven't heard too much or can't really comment on for lack of hearing them. But I hope to get this done relatively soon so i can start focusing on 2013, which i very well may keep going throughout all year so it's not a burden this time next year.

If you like your Power Metal epic heavy and full of fun, get this album now.

9/10
Interesting take on this one. I enjoyed it, but felt it was not as good as Coat of Arms (their best album IMO). There are some good songs, but only one classic (the title track). I initially rated it an 8.5, but would probably give it a bit lower now.

Also, the 4/6ths of the band that left did record that album, but none of them are songwriters for the band, so the songs should sound the same on Sabaton's future records.

233.) Cannibal Corpse- Torture

This was and in a lot of ways still is, My Death Metal album of the year. Many older fans, and hipster young kids will disagree with me. but Kill is Cannibal Corpse's finest work. And I feel this album captures a lot of what was on that album in sheer brutality. There is no reinventing the wheel for Cannibal Corpse they have two speeds, killer fast, or brutally slow. Both equal out to some amazing Torture (pun intended). If you don't like this album, you are not a real Death Metal fan.

9.5/10
Agreed. This one really set the bar high early in the year. This is probably one of the most noticeable death metal records where each song is different. I'll have a lot more to say about this record in my end of year thread as well.

241.) Municipal Waste- The Fatal Feast

The Best Crossover Thrash album of the year. Municipal Waste has never ever let me down, and this album proves that once again. For those that pay attention to my radio show. For most of my episodes, the song, You're Cut Off is the ending theme, very appropriately so. Nothing revolutionary about this album, it's crossover Thrash, but it's some of the best damn Crossover Thrash you'll hear all year, unless you discover older bands/album.

9.5/10

242.) TesseracT- Perspective


This is an acoustic focused E from the Djent/Prog Metal band featuring some reworkings of songs off the first album a couple new songs as well. For an acoustic EP, it is pretty well balanced, although without saying, one sided. for those that like a softer driven Prog Rock EP, this is it!

7/10

243.) Bleeding Through- The Great Fire


I haven't paid attention to Bleeding Through in a good long time. probably since Love in Slow Motion was a single....when the Hell did they add Black Metal to their style? It actually made them a very interesting band again. without the Black Metal influence, this would be a pretty standard Metalcore/Hardcore album, but with it, it adds a ton of dimensions that I wouldn't have ever guessed could be involved. Its a very damn good album, and I was never expecting to say that. Kudos!

8/10

244.) Save Us From The Archon- How terrible, the Undergrowth's Jaw Tangle


If Protest The Hero made Djenty Prog Metal....well even more so. There is even some Post Rock moments on this album as well.But this has the Protest The Hero proficiency over some Post Rock and Prog Metal. it's a very cool combination. Like Protest, it does get a bit one sided, but its very awesome to listen to in mall doses. I'm hoping by the time of their second album they will be huge, but this is fantastic debut album

8/10

245.) Arjen Anthony Lucassen- Lost To The New Real


Arjen can never do any wrong. every single one of his releases has been a Power Prog Metal epic masterpiece. This is no different. A concept album that rally strikes a nerve to those that hear it. Arjen takes all the styles he is known for and made it into one cohesive album The covers on this album as well are very badass. Of course like everything Arjen does, there is a level of cheese to it, but it is overshadowed by everything else this album has to offer. And look out for new Ayreon coming out in 2013!

9/10

246.) Shining- Redefining Darkness


As he title suggests, this is a dark, evil Black Metal album. the first of Shining's discography since the debut not to have a numbered album title attached to it. While I don't think they will ever match the truly sad, depressing Black Metal they did in their early days, this comes pretty damn close. The productrion is top notch (how does that work in Black Metal? haha) the songwriting is killer and everything about it is sheer, evil awesomeness. While many people either forgot, or didn't know about this album, they should check it out asap. It's so very well worth it.

8/10

247.) Primal Fear- Unbreakable


This was the first Power Metal album i heard this year. And it lives up to the Primal fear name. It's a fantastic album I don't hear anyone talk about. It has all the good and bad aspects in Power Metal that you eitehr love or hate. I happen to love it all (Manowar being an exception in some cases) but Primal fear does it right. They hit a home run with this one, pick it up if you haven't already.

7/10

248.) Primate- Draw Back A Stump


a Great album that very few have heard, featuring Bill from Mastodon. This is an awesome album that a mix of Crossover Thrash, Grindcore and Hardcore with some Sludge elements. my only downside to this album is that it ends way too quickly, it's only 20 minutes long, but that gives way for repeated listens. You can definitely hear a lot of Mastodon influence in this album, which is no way a bad thing. This is a killer EP, and if you like any of the genres listed, you should check this out immediately

8/10

249.) Kreator- Phantom Antichrist


One of the best things to ever come out of Germany, and what I wish Megadeth would have came if they stuck to their original style, KREATOR. there is no denying that they do have an AC/DC quality to them, their albums do sound a lot alike. But that works for some bands like AC/DC, Slayer, etc. Kreator pulls that off flawlessly and every album in that regard is equally enjoyable. Phantom Antichrist is a great German Thrash Metal album that any real Thrash fan will dig. Ya Dig?

8/10

250) Trioscapes- Seperate Realities


I am surprised this didn't come up sooner. This trio (haha, get it?) is a side project of BTBAM bassist, Dan Briggs. It is drums, bass and Saxophone. It's 100% Instrumental Jazz Fusion Metal. It's not unlike BTBAM but it is it's own entity. this wasn't a big release or well known but Jazz fans, fusion fans Prog fans and even some Metal fans will absolutely dig this album if given a chance. And it is well worth it. This is how Jazz Metal should sound.

9.5/10

251.) Secrets of the Moon- Seven Bells


Dark, Evil Black Metal. There is actually a lot of Atmosphere around it as well with a lot of dynamics. This is absolutely one of the better Black Metal albums to be released this year. I hope this review will actually draw some attention to this album because it deserves it. It's very well written like latter Day Emperor. Black Metal fans should be drooling over this when they get the first taste of it. You won't wanna let this one go. So get it!

9/10

252.) Horrendous- The Chills


The second best Death metal album of the year. Like Asphyx, this is taking early day Death into the 2000s. You can't hear this and not think that they wouldn't go along great with Death during the Scream Bloody Gore tour. Horrendous is doing us a favor by bringing back Death metal to what it is suppose to be about, Great Riffs, catchy at that. Awesome songwriting and over just brutal. I love this album so much

9.5/10

253.) Microfilm- AF127


This is Instrumental Post Rock with lots of Prog elements, and sound clips where normally vocals would be. They go from Sex Ed class videos to other very obscure references that make the songs every interesting to listen to and enjoy. This is not your every day run of the mill Post Rock, this is a lot quirkier and and much more enjoyable. If you want something different, check this one out.

8/10

254.) Wo Fat- The Black Code


Ah yes Wo Fat. the perfect mixture of Black Sabbath and Mastodon. It's Doom Metal with some Sludgy Prog Rock thrown in. This stuff is totally killer to listen to in small doses, unless you like to get high, then it's perfect all the way through. I got into these guys last year with their debut album, and this is a fantastic step up. they are only getting better and better. And for fans of the genre. This is for you!

8/10

255.) Neal Morse- Momentum


I will defend myself to the day I die. I listen to as much Neal Morse as I do Deicide and Behemoth. I love music. I don't care what they preach both good or evil, if it is good music I will love it. Neal Morse is the king of Christian Prog Rock. there is absolutely no denying it, and this is some of his best work post Spock's Beard. The one downside to this, and every Neal Morse album is the lyrics. before you start, i don't mean the content. I mean that every album has the same story of someone who is lost in life and finds God. that is a great message, but not for every album. Luckily in the case of Momentum, it doesn't matter, the whole album is firing on all cylinders and is fantastic. Amazing Prog Rock.

9/10

256.) Morglbl- Brutal Romance


Fabulous Instrumental Prog Rock written in the style of Freak Kitchen and Frank Zappa. It's quirky, its amazingly well written and overall, just fun to listen to. It does get a tad long without vocals if you can't stand music not having vocals for a long period of time. For us Instrumental fans. it flows together so very well and it is awesome all the way through. Get this!

8/10

257.) Sear Bliss- Eternal Recurrence


Black Metal with a brass section. What are the odds? Well Symphonic black Metal is so very good, why not make a Black metal band with some Trombone for good measure. Sear Bliss proves that this can make the music even better. This is not your average Black Metal filled with Tremolo picking, deah shrieks, and blast beats. Not this is a very Progressive Black Metal album that feels like a dark evil Jazz album. While some could find this gimmicky, I do not. it flows together so well and should be heard by anyone who loves the brass section, regardless if you love Metal or not.

9/10

258.) Self Spiller- Worms In the Keys


This is what Agalloch does in their free time when not in Agalloch or teaching in college. this is some very messed up avant garde music. Electronica meets Death Metal to Post Rock to Circus music to smooth jazz. it's all over the board, and with that said, they seem like the kind of guys who would at least try to promote this album, they should have anyways. as a guy who likes music to be different, this almost borders on being too out there for me, but not quite there. After a few listens it flows together naturally. But those first few listens, it's a mind screw for sure.

7/10

259.) Counter-World Experience- Music For Kings


Instrumental Progressive Metal that sounds like if Liquid tension Experiment got back together, and made darker Prog Metal. its really the best way i can describe it. Again with instrumental music, it may feel long to you with no vocals, but at the same time, for instrumental fans like myself. the music does all the talking, and there is no need for anything else. This is killer Prog Metal.

8/10

260.) Arbor- The Plutonian Shore


Get ready for one long ass genre description.....Atmospheric Folk Progressive Black Metal. I can't make it any shorter than that without leaving something very important to the sound. this is an album I haven't been able to spend too much time on when I first got it, but with each listen I gave it it gets better and better. it's got everything you'd want from all the genres listed, all while being completely catchy and enjoyable. Like another band that will be brought up at some point, Obsidian Kingdom, these guys are making Black Metal worth listening to from any music fan. And doing it right. Please check this out!

9.5/10

Really? I think it's their worst album to date. Everything MW has released since The Art of Partying has been very mediocre.
