mastodon421's Year End Ape-Shit List-A-Thon

Alright over the upcoming weeks i will be posting my favorites of the year. Starting today with album covers. I will post my entire list ranking every album of the year and other fun stuff like that.Anyways on to the album covers!!!!!!!


5. The Red Chord-Fed Through The Teeth Machine




A very unique and interesting piece of artwork that pretty much captures the brutality that this album has to offer.



4. Despied Icon-Day Of Mourning




I don't really particually know why i loved this cover so much but something just struck be about it.

3.Baroness-Blue Record



This is just a beatiful piece of artwork. The hand-drawn factor is a big reason that I dig this cover so much.


2.God Forbid-Earthsblood




This is pretty much everything a metal cover should be. A really fucking awesome image that just strikes as soon as you lay your eyes on it. One of the better covers i have seen in a long time.


1.Skeletonwitch-Breathing The Fire.




I can't even write much about this. This cover is just plain bad-ass.

I am going to start the album countdown tommorow or Saturday. I am going to rate all 70 albums i have listened to this year. I am in the process of ranking them right now and it is a pretty hard task. I will be posting other assorted lists throughout the duration of my countdown as well. Stay tuned my metal brothers!

Break into chunks for sure 70 at one time would be overwhelming. I will post the first 3 albums/writeups when i get back from school.

Here is the beginning of my list which starts off with a thud at 70-68.



70. Green Day-21st Cenutry Breakdown





Where to start with this doo-doo fest? This is seriously some of the most garbage material i have ever heard. To be honest i went in with no expectations at all and still felt i had been slapped in the face after listening to it. It's now confirmed that this band is done for after this and American Idiot. It's a shame to with all the great material they had released before this 2 album streak that has pretty much derailed them musically in my book.


69. Rose Funeral-The Resting Sonata




As I am fan of a handful of deathcore bands I went into this album with open mind. Sadly this album just reinforces why most deathcore is fucking terrible. Some of the most generic,craptastic breakdown-filled shit i have heard in a while. I mean really have no big issue with breakdowns but the ones on this album are really poorly done. Rose Funeral is one of the reasons that deathcore is one of the most dreaded words in all of metal.


68. Jay-Z-The Blueprint 3




Another album that could have been great due to Jay-Z good track record in the past but of course he had to sellout. The main problem with this album is the lyrics which are god awful. Also the fact that is album is sickeingly mainstream even for Jay-Z makes me pretty sad. This song was made for radio hits and nothing else and to see Jay-Z go down this path is just wrong. Just like Green Day he was one of the best at what he did now that is just a distant memory.

Haha, yeah. 21st Century Breakdown was probably my least favorite album of the year too.

67. Marliyn Manson-The High End Of Low





This album also seemed like a paraody album. I mean with song titles like "Arma-goddamn-Motherfuckin-geddon" and "Pretty As A Swastika" its just pathetic. Manson just tries to capture his Antichrist Superstar days and instead makes the worst album of his career.



66.The Chariot-Wars and Rumors Of War




I've always liked this band for whatever reason but this album makes me want to reconsider. This is just a very bland and repeative album. I know The Chariot have it in them to make better music but clearly this time they struck out.

65. Pearl Jam-Backspacer




All i have to say about this album is a happy Eddie Vedder makes me an unhappy Pearl jam fan.

this statement made me laugh so hard, and its so true, nice...

and greenday used to be cool, I liked american Idiot when it came out, but dookie was the first album I ever owned, and it is still their best work in my opinion.
