Why not doing monthly?

I did think about splitting it, a list for the first six months and a list for the final six months, but I prefer to keep it all in one list if I can. I like to look back at older releases and arrange the order as the year progresses, and find the one list formula easier to keep up to date with.

I've reached my top ten and what I find most fascinating about this so far is there are 9 different nationalities from the ten different bands, an incredibly diverse start to this year and still no Scandinavian as of yet.

[Edit] - Make that 10 different nationalities from 11 albums.

Ok I suppose I can get away with counting Iceland, I suppose I could class Denmark too if any bands from that nation enters my list.

That still leaves Sweden, Norway and Finland, three of the leading nations in metal music in recent years, but I'm sure by the end of the year bands from those nations will be up there dominating the top half of my list.
