I'm really stoked you gave that one a listen to!! It's my number two for the year. You should definitely catch them live if they come near you!

I was in the hospital yet again this past weekend. I will have my top 40 up by the end of the year, I promise.

40. Amaranthe- The Nexus



Power Pop Melodic Death Metal. This is one of the most fun albums of the year. Where Power Metal, Melodeath, and Pop Metal take over in their spots and create a form of music that any fan of Hard and Heavy music should love. I can't see anything to hate about these guys, it's fun, they are fun, they gave me one of my best interviews this year, and they put on such a fun live show. The Nexus is an album for all Rock and Metal fans to unite with and enjoy some killer fun music.

39.) Alice In Chains- The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here




AIC is the greatest Radio Rock band to come out of the 90s, period. Many people thought after Layne Staley died this band had no chance to continue on and be any good. They have proven that theory wrong for the second time now with The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here. It's pure AIC from start to finish, picking right up with where the last album left off, and honestly I wouldn't want it any other way. Phantom Limb just may be the best AIC song since the Dirt album. This is the definition of a rock solid hard Rock album.

38.) - The Black Dahlia Murder- Everblack



Melodic Death Metal and Black Metal in a perfect harmony of Metal tuneage. Arguably their strongest material to date, the Black Dahlia Murder is as strong as ever leaving their cheesier kinda ironic hipster beginnings to rest a couple albums back and continuing on being themselves. Till this album the song I will Return I felt was their strongest and best song, and one of my favorite riffs ever, now on Everblack they matched it with the equally badass Map Of Scars, just like I Will Return the Intro and Outro make the song, while the middle is just beautiful chaos.. These guys have done it again making a solid album that is not too short or too long, kicks ass all the way through, and leaves you on an epic note. Bravo guys!

37.) Fleshgod Apocalypse- Labyrinth



Fleshgod Apocalypse is the closest thing on Earth to being the soundtrack to the Zombie Apocalypse. Their last album was the quintessential piece of Symphonic Death Metal that anyone exploring the genre should know. Labyrinth carries on this tradition the same. A lot of people have ragged on this album due to the mix, the biggest complaint being the guitars are low in the mix. But considering how many instruments are in this album, including all the orchestration, I do not see that as a bad thing, this album slays from beginning to end, and while not as many over the top blasting as the last album, this album has the songwriting and precision of orchestrally trained musicians going into an Apocalyptic War, and I love every second of it. Not to mention they put on one of the most mindblowing shows you ill ever get the chance to see. I hope they never ever stop.

36.) Arsis- Unwelcome



One of my favorite group of guys out there playing music, Weather it is seething them play twice this year, Helping them out of a jam during the last MN show, or interviewing them in a drunken stupor after a show. I love these guys and the music is top not Tech Death Everyone in the band is an absolute wizard of their craft and they know how to be fun at the same time, as evident by their cover of Corey hart's Sunglasses At Night. This is the kind of album you show off to people who want to have their ears blown away by musicianship as well as brutality and musicality. This has it all, and I can't wait to see what they do next.

35.) GERM- Grief



The Australian version of Neige's Amesoeurs, except not every song is sung by Amesoeurs' Audrey Sylvain. This is a Post Rock, Shoegaze, Black Metal album from hell. So uplifting from yet so desperately haunting at the same time. I absolutely love it. The vocals, both the male and female vocals, may be hard to get into if you aren't into screams, but the clean vocals will sucker you in. It's an odd combination, but hardly the strangest album in my top 40, enjoy this for what it is. a Bi-polar masterpiece of love and hate.

34.) Vaura- The Missing

*Can't post album art*

In Speaking of crazy, strange albums. This is definitely one of them. This goes all over the board from Post Rock to Black Metal to The Cure. In short Vaura is a mixture of Gorguts, maudlin of the Well, and Dysrhythmia. Experimental Art Rock for sure. Go into this album with an open ear or else you will never get it. it's a messed up album, but looking at the list of band members, how could it not be? It is so damn crazy, but good.

33.) The Winery Dogs- S/T



A perfect hard Rock, but Proggy album. 3 musicians, Ritchie Kotzen, Billy Sheehan, and Mike Portnoy, playing Alternative Classic Hard Rock with a Prog edge. It's not meant to be a Mr. Big album, or Poison, or Dream Theater. It's just 3 guys who kick ass, making kickass music, what else do you really need?
