5. Gorod - Transcendence
6. Beardfish - Mammoth
7. Steven Wilson - Grace For Drowning
8. Protest The Hero - Scurrilous
9. Lazarus A.D. - Black Rivers Flow
A refreshingly awesome and catchy piece of groovy thrash metal
10. Opeth - Heritage
11. Symphony X - Iconoclast
12. Riverside - Memories In My Head
13. Lazuli - (4603 Battements)
Very interesting atmospheric prog rock. This album provides both freaking catchy riffs and really brooding atmospheres. These guys also like to go on those long instrumental psychedelic jams on many songs.
14. Derelict Earth - And So Fell The Last Leaves...
15. Havok - Time Is Up
16. Mastodon - The Hunter
17. Leprous - Bilateral
18. Between The Buried And Me - The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues
19. Thence - These Stones Cry From The Earth
Interesting well-balanced prog effort, with both mellow, sometimes very melancholic passages with saxophone use (as well as harmonica) and some heavier passages.
20. Haken - Visions
21. Universe217 - Familiar Places
