Iron Maiden: T to _|_

It has been done before, but the constant Virtual XI bashing is annoying me. Guess I'm going to hell for this one... or should I say, "into the depths of R'lyeh"?
(And for the non-computer-scientists, the "_|_" is the "bottom" symbol.)

1. Iron Maiden - Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son
2. Iron Maiden - Brave New World
3. Iron Maiden - A Matter Of Life And Death
4. Iron Maiden - Killers
5. Iron Maiden - Piece Of Mind

BTDS's Album Roundup Of 2011 (annotated)

Welcome, no matter if you're a long-term MS member or an Avenged Sevenfold listener. Don't know what to vote for? Here's ANOTHER yearly best-of list for you to go through, or, more likely, for the usual tl;dr. But, wait - what makes this one different: 1) unqualified and totally subjective two-line reviews, 2) conscious restriction to the litte-more-than-20 most impressive albums, 3) an aversion against the much too generic thrash & power metal genres and anything without recall value.

1. Amaranthe - Amaranthe
2. Alestorm - Back Through Time
3. Thy Catafalque - Rengeteg
4. Fair To Midland - Arrows & Anchors
5. The Devil's Blood - The Thousandfold Epicentre
