    agree with comment below;)

    They're both good albums but not I'm not amazed.

    Aye, Mitochondrion - Parasignosis is one of the most exciting death metal albums I've ever heard. I'm not a particularly big fan of death metal either, but would still have to rate that album much higher just for it's sheer inhumanly dark and visceral qualities. Get your ears around the new Sleeping Peonies, Deafheaven and Woods of Desolation if you get chance. All great releases this year.

  • Toretto

    Eventually I'll have to make some changes to my ratings as I listen to the albums. For now, that's how Mitochondrion felt.

  • TheArtistBox

    Good list dude.

    25 avr. 2011, 12h19m
  • Toretto

    Kampfar and Forgotten Tomb are on my list to listen.

    25 avr. 2011, 14h32m
  • TheArtistBox

    A lot of stuff i don't know about either, just having a proper look. You might do well to come over and see mine aswell , might get a few you like.

    What... I think Crimfall was a bit disappointing. Very thin sounds all the way, and the male vocalist was lame whereas the female vocalist was almost the only light of the album.

  • Toretto

    I think "As The Path Unfolds" is better because it's more sing-along whilst it maintains a good composition level. This one is more complex but not as catchy as the previous one. It needs a lot more plays to get in to. Anyway, I like it very much.

  • Mrozikos667

    Hey, give Primordial another try, it may not be as mindblowing as their latest, but it's still great album!

    10 mai 2011, 15h00m
  • hammerstrikebg

    myGRAIN selftitled is very good :/

    5 juin 2011, 22h03m
  • Toretto

    It's a load of crap. If you want to listen something resembling good melodic death, try this year's Euphoreon.

    6 juin 2011, 12h06m
  • SceneryOfLoss

    Embora não concorde com tudo, muito boa lista!

    22 juin 2011, 17h30m
  • Pseudomancer

    I want to chime in for Sleeping Peonies. My favourite post-black-metal release this year.

  • mr-andrewww

    Blackguard - Firefight!!! WTF, 40-49?? the album just so great!!!

    28 oct. 2011, 10h07m
  • VilliKettu

    Never seen such unappropriate ratings before. :D Critically acclaimed "Sólstafir - Svartir Sandar" at 40-49, very good "Falkenbach - Tiurida" at 20-29... You should quit reviewing, this is totally biased.
