My "Final Selection" for 2010. Top 10 in order. The Rest for A-Z.
As a big fan of Power and Folk metal, this year was quiet good. The return of Rhapsody, new actors as Ancient Bards, Sinbreed, great comeback - Accept, Masterplan with Jorn, long awaited albums - Orphaned Land, Blind Guardian and Alcest. Some discoveries - Finsterforst, Skiltron, Pretty Maids (shame on me)and Orden Ogan. Some unexpected suprises Black Majesty, Iron Fire. Not to say that many bands didnt disappoint me with their new album - Derdian, Freedom Call, Eluvetie, Galneyrus, Wuthering Heights. Good year, a little bit above the average
