Heavy Metal Haven
Hello and welcome to our second monthly newsletter. This is our final entry as we are closing down soon...
OK, maybe that wasn't funny. But I would like to take a moment to reiterate my gratitude to you, our members, whose continued use of the forum allows us to keep going well beyond my original expectations. Through March we've brought a dozen new album reviews and have also featured an interview with last month's Album of the Month winners, Mortillery. Album of the Month for April is Wolfchant's Embraced by Fire. A new power metal direction has worked wonders for the band and they're topped their best work once again.
You'll also notice this edition returns our metal news and new forum topics sections. Be sure to join in the discussion.

30 déc. 2010, 23h55m par hurricane_marioI am fairly open-minded (as you should be), so expect any genre in here, though metal is definitely my favorite. However, I usually won't bother to review non-metal releases unless it's one of the extremes - really good, or really bad and I feel like trashing it. Though, I'm just realizing that my taste has shifted away from metal even more this year...
This is my final list, containing almost every album I have listened to which came out in 2010. I will not be updating this entry any more unless someone enlightens me to something super-fantastic that came out this year that I missed. I can’t believe 2010 is over already, it seems like yesterday it was new years eve, and now it is tomorrow again. I will likely not do a list like this again next year, its too much work. But it's been fun and a good way to keep track of the excessive amounts of music I like. Perhaps next year just a top 20 and other great ones.
A playlist including one song off each of the top 20 albums and 7 other songs, is up on my blog as of 1/9/11. …

Keep in mind, I am rating these albums as a whole, not judging it based on the quality of particular songs. For example, if there are no songs that stand out as good, but the album is a concept album that reveals to me the meaning of life through music, it would probably be #1. Production is a BIG part of my review process as well, it's 2010 so I want my albums to sound futuristic, refined and shiny!
Top 10 in order, rest of categories are alphabetical.
" ...dissapointment" Where albums I really wanted did not meet or exceed expectations.
bold is a must-listen!!
And please comment, either to debate my reviews or to recommend me albums I don't know about!

Delete any duplicates, count up the number of entries on your list and this will give you some idea of how eclectic your listening habits are. A score of 9 represents an extremely unvaried musical taste while a 160 represents an extremely varied one.

2 avr. 2010, 20h46m par rugiadanotturnaTake your top 20 artists. For each of these artists, collect the top 5 similar artists. The resulting number of unique artists is your eclectic score. If the score is small (extreme = 5) your musical preferences are very limited, and if it is large (larger than 80, extreme = 100), then you have an eclectic musical preference.
