My top Metal picks for 2009. It was in interesting year and a good transition into what I feel will be a decade of progression as never seen before.
If you don't agree with my list, make your own. I obviously don't have time to listen to 5,000 albums every year. Magazines that do, such as Decibel or Terrorizer, usually have trouble conjuring up 40 quality albums to throw on their yearly lists, so cut me some slack...I am not working with a team of people, and I don't get paid. I'm sure there are plenty of great albums that I have yet to discover or that I have just not been able to listen to...but all of those that are listed have been personally approved by me. The numbers are not as important to me. I would greatly appreciate some "Thumbs ups", as I have put a lot of my personal time into this list, and also into reviewing these great albums.
P.S. I would like to note that I have written short reviews for these albums which can be accessed here: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2045052&id=1093866467&l=52bf9b5249
You will find that I have changed the lists around a bit, with my metalstorm list being the most recent. I have added Arckanum and The Chasm recently. It's also worth mentioning that OM's God is God would have been on this list, but I don't classify that album as a metal album whatsoever. Thanks for reading
