Top 40 Albums That Blow My Poseur Mind

To walk the path of the metal poseur is to pick the plumpest of mainstream fruits and succour the sweet secretions contained within. It is the art of walking with giants of mainstream underground extremism whilst maintaining one foot firmly on the part of pop monumentalism.

The path is dangerous for the faux fur of metal consumerism is a tempting demon whore that claws at the inner self of underground triumphalism. These are the eagles that soar through the mind galleries of every metal poseur, no matter how compartmentalised their singularity may be.

1. Alice In Chains - Dirt
2. Anthrax - Volume 8 - The Threat Is Real
3. Artillery - By Inheritance
4. Blind Guardian - Imaginations From The Other Side
5. Blind Guardian - Nightfall In Middle-Earth

Best Of 2013 XIII (An Enigmatic Journey)

Hello and welcome to my first ever top albums list. While I've been listening to metal for over 15 years I've never compiled an actual year end list. The reason for this is because I feel my current favorites to be ever changing dependent on mood, season and situational. But the reason I feel it's necessary is because I want to spread the joy of music. I see many people jaded on music, well if this list is any indication music is alive and doing some amazing things. I've encountered so many lists this year and honestly can't say there's anything close to my list. Whole brilliant albums left off of list after list, but it is all opinion. Other albums held up in high regard that just made me shake my head or perplex me. Even reading many lists gets annoying do to slideshows or advertisement overload or no explanations, I've made this as easy to browse as I could. This is a celebration of the music of 2013. Doing this list was fun yet stressful for me. To me a list isn't a versus or better than. It's just a personal list, still I want to make the numbers carry weight and importance.
Enjoy, comment below and spread the word

1. In Vain - Ænigma
2. Soilwork - The Living Infinite
3. Amorphis - Circle
4. Obscure Sphinx - Void Mother
5. Haken - The Mountain

A Bizarre List Of Top 20 Death Metal Albums

I'll be the first to admit I haven't got a clue about Death Metal. A lot of the traditional DM faves ala Death or Obituary have never appealed to me, let alone the uber technical side of the genre.

So here's a list of my top 20 Death Metal albums in alphabetical order. I have avoided blatantly Melodic Death Metal stuff ala Dark Tranquillity but have included the more heavier ones ala Carcass and Edge of Sanity.

1. Aborted - The Archaic Abattoir
2. Atheist - Piece Of Time
3. Bolt Thrower - Realm Of Chaos
4. Bolt Thrower - Those Once Loyal
5. Carcass - Necroticism: Descanting The Insalubrious

Favourite Album By Year

Well here's a challenge - my favourite albums for each year since 1980. A challenge because in some instances there's too many awesome albums to pick from and in other years not many stand outs.

In the end the list turns out to not be a list of overall favourites as some years featured more than one awesome album.

1. Carcass - Surgical Steel
2. Accept - Stalingrad
3. Anthrax - Worship Music
4. Overkill - Ironbound
5. Megadeth - Endgame
