2000-2014: A 'Factored' Top 100

Take a look at the Top Album lists of recent years and you'll notice an obvious trend. In 2005 the average rating of the top 25 albums is 8.76. Jump to 2014 and the average among the top 25 has dropped to 8.26. An almost linear decrease is observable for the 10 years in between.

I was curious to see what a Top 100 for 2000-2014 would look like if I factored the votes to account for the 'rating decline'. I hope you find it interesting.

1. Agalloch - The Mantle
2. Opeth - Blackwater Park
3. Blindead - Affliction XXIX II MXMVI
4. Aquilus - Griseus
5. Nevermore - Dead Heart In A Dead World

Get Your Grind On.

This is a list that will gather my most recent discoveries in modern grind and affiliated sub-genres and variations (such as deathgrind, cybergrind, blackened grind etc...) that are worthy of a good number of listens. Keep in mind this isn't a "the absolute classics" kind of list. I'm both kinda ignorant and not that interested when it comes to powerviolence and early grind, but a few older releases and modern classics might find their way into this list because they're favourites of mine.

1. Unborn Generation - Dead Generation Of Men
2. Retox - Beneath California
3. Theories - Regression
4. The Kill - Kill Them... All
5. Graves - Fides Ad Nauseam
