The Very Few Best Of 2011

Might add albums later on. This list is not finalized yet...

Created by: Mountain King | 29.12.2011

1. Stratovarius - Elysium
[Power Metal - Finland] Every track is a winner. My favorite release from 2011 [8.5/10]
2. Pagan's Mind - Heavenly Ecstasy
[Progressive Power Metal - Norway] One of the greatest prog albums. A few tracks are average but some of the best Power and Progressive Metal songs can be found here. "Eyes Of Fire", "Follow Your Way", "Revelation To The End" [8.3/10]
3. Dragonland - Under The Grey Banner
[Power Metal - Sweden] In my top 3 albums for 2011. Just like Elysium it is hard to pick a standout track because the whole album is a masterpiece. The atmosphere and female vocals are incredible and the songs themselves are fast, heavy and catchy. Here are some of the really good tracks: "Shadow Of The Mithril Mountains", "The Black Mare", "Lady Of Goldenwood" [8.3/10]
4. Almah - Motion
[Progressive Power Metal - Brazil] The Brazilians lead by Edu Falaschi are evolving with each release. While Fragile Equality might be a better album this comes close. With it's down tuned riffs and interesting lyrics, I think it's one of the best releases of 2011. "Trace Of Trait", "Bullets On The Altar", "Zombies Dictator" [7.8/10]
5. Dream Theater - A Dramatic Turn Of Events
[Progressive Metal - USA] In my top 5 Dream Theater albums. Some tracks are phenomenal just like "On The Back Of Angels", "Lost Not Forgotten" & "Breaking All Illusions" [8.2/10]
6. Iron Savior - The Landing
[Power Metal - Germany] Didn't expect this one to be this great. After Megatropolis (Which is a great album for me), the Saviors released yet another solid album. "Metal Never Dies, "Starlight", "Moment In Time", "Before The Pain" [8/10]
7. Hammerfall - Infected
[Power Metal - Sweden] I don't get the hate for this album by all people. I think it's a pretty decent album and a good buy of the year. "Dia De Los Muertos", "Redemption", "Immortalized" [7.8/10]
