MMXI: Handpicked by MechanisT

Best (and worst) of 2011 (thus far).
Partially ordered (thus far).
Subject to change, as I see fit.

What a wonderful year, I have to say! This year has seen me expand my tastes like never before. Discovered so many great new acts, while many metal stalwarts delivered the goods as expected. A truly memorable year, and one that I will forever cherish, as far as me being an avid music enthusiast is concerned.

1. Septicflesh - The Great Mass
2. Omnium Gatherum - New World Shadows
3. Sylosis - Edge Of The Earth
4. Heavenwood - Abyss Masterpiece
5. Insomnium - One For Sorrow

Booooobs

They are on covers of every Metal genre and staged in all ways one can think of: Boobs! Noticing that there are are a few covers with this part of the female body (NO man boobs - NO Manowar) on it, I had the idea to make a list with those CDs. At the beginning, there were only 25 albums on it -which is not very much-, but with looking out for boobs on Metal covers, it became longer and longer. And now, it is a list with 203 albums and suggestions are always welcome!

1. Abaddon Incarnate - The Last Supper
2. Abrasive - Awakening of Lust
3. Abrasive - The Birth...Born In Sodom
4. Acrimonious - Sunyata
5. Ad Inferna - L'empire Des Sens

2011 Suggestions For The Eclectic Metalhead

If you're like me and can't sit still with just one or two genres, perhaps you'll find some ideas in this list. I kept the variety with genres, but also by including all worthy bands from unknown newcomers all the way up to big names. Basically, everything I liked this year.

Since there are so many genres here, don't get too worked up about specific rating and placement. They're generally in order, but more importantly they're all amazing.

1. Silent Stream Of Godless Elegy - Návaz
2. Fair To Midland - Arrows & Anchors
3. Autumn - Cold Comfort
4. Shadowside - Inner Monster Out
5. 40 Watt Sun - The Inside Room

2011 Selections

Each year countless of albums come out. This is obviously by no means a definitive guide because as of 14/12/2011, I've only heard 364 releases from 2011, but do check these albums out if you haven't already! Feel free to throw stuff at my direction. In a rough order right now and rankings get rearranged every now and again. Will be trimmed around again in January / February. Note that I still have plenty to check out though.

1. Terra Tenebrosa - The Tunnels
2. Esoteric - Paragon Of Dissonance
3. Born Of Osiris - The Discovery
4. The Psychic Paramount - II
5. Flourishing - The Sum Of All Fossils

The Current Decade: 2010-2019: My Opinion: The Truth: Reality

*The title is a joke, of course

The Current Decade (2010-2019) in order of preference. This is separate from my year-lists, which strive to include as many albums from the year as possible regardless of quality. Only albums I deem worthy of a favorites list by personal taste will make it. I'd say Axioma Ethica Odini has a major step up on anything beneath it this decade; it's the only truly perfect album so far in my eyes. Last overhauled: May 13th. Now it's a bit tighter.

1. Enslaved - Axioma Ethica Odini
2. Septicflesh - The Great Mass
3. 40 Watt Sun - The Inside Room
4. Antichrist - Forbidden World
5. Agalloch - Marrow of the Spirit

My 40 (Ever-Changing) Favorite Songs Ever

*Now remixed with some of my favorite non-metal tracks! In order by preference, although it's tough with songs... and who knows what I'm forgetting? I'm not claiming these are the downright best, just my personal favorites based on my own enjoyment of them. Song titles in parentheses. Will probably change a lot, except for the top ten, which is harder to break into.

1. Edge of Sanity - Crimson
2. Primordial - To the Nameless Dead
3. Artillery - By Inheritance
4. Agalloch - The Mantle
5. Theatre of Tragedy - Aégis

2011 Stuff I Spun A Lot (last update: February 2012)

In order roughly, by the number of spins. A lot = A LOT. So when I give ten more spins to the rest of the albums I've listened to, and forgot to rate most probably, this will grow larger. Or not. I'm making this for me anyway.

1. Subsignal - Touchstones
2. Symphony X - Iconoclast
3. Amorphis - The Beginning Of Times
4. Pain Of Salvation - Road Salt Two
5. Iced Earth - Dystopia

Until Yet A Few More Deaths Do Us Part, here's my 2011 list...

Quite a polarizing year, this one. On one hand, some releases redefined crap itself. On the other hand, we've got quite a few great and awesome albums. All in all, it was a bit disappointing for me, but I won't complain much indeed (unless I compare it with 2007 of course)...

1 to 5: Cream of the crop, by preference order.

1. Lazuli - (4603 Battements)
2. Thy Catafalque - Rengeteg
3. Devin Townsend - Deconstruction
4. Terra Tenebrosa - The Tunnels
5. Unexpect - Fables Of The Sleepless Empire

*My Favorite Musicians*

I'll start with the disclaimer that I am not, nor ever have been, a musician. This list is of my own favorite performers, not the actual technical best musicians as I am a layman and can only go by what my stupid ears tell me. You'll notice the list is vocalist heavy which is a byproduct of my lack of musical talent. The list contains the artist, their instrument and the release where I feel they are at their best. **Last Update 08/16/11**

1. Symphony X - The Odyssey
2. Septicflesh - Communion
3. Symphony X - V: The New Mythology Suite
4. Scar Symmetry - Pitch Black Progress
5. Symphony X - The Divine Wings Of Tragedy
