This very well maybe the best year for metal yet...

Psycroptic = Fucking ownage
Anata = Amazing as fuck
Keep of Kalessin = best black metal I've heard in awihle
DEcrepit Birth - will be awesome I'm sure
Sleep Terror - Will rip balls off
Dysrhythmia - awesome wierd tech shit (not meatl, but it rules so I'll put it up)

Gadget - sweet
Dead to Fall - the only good metalcore cd to come out in months
Augury - I haven't heard it yet but it will rule


Yep

I'm very surprised you didn't include Spawn of Possession in that list... But yeah... Amazing year.

also... Why don't you consider Dysrhythmia metal? It's instrumental, but I'd say there are definitely some metal parts.

I'm sure they're are many more new releases to surface this year. Don't forget the new Vader (the last EP "the Art Of War" was really fucking fast, heavy-as-fuck with crystal clear production) "Impressions In Red" inspired by the works Hyeronimous Bosch. Psycroptic, Decrepit Birth and Anata are amazing new bands. This is what modern technical yet brutal death metal is about...and much more. Extreme metal (which actually means real nowadays heavy-metal) is getting stronger and stronger. If you're not in touch with the fucking underground you're not metal. Fuck the weak!

I forgot Spawn of Possession, I haven't heard anything about it from months (i'm pretty disconnected from the scene, I don't talk to people about metal much anymore) I'm really looking foward to hearing that. On Cabinet the drums sounded pretty weak, I hopen they fix it on this cd, so the awesome riffs and blasting comes through full force.

And Dysrhythmia seem kinda...I don't know, punky? Yea, some parts are metal I guess, but they just don't give me the metal vibe, very abrasive and technical, but I just don't group it with metal. Doesn't matter, it rules hard.
Vader too, the Art of War EP was good, started out like a march to batlte and then blows up, the drumming is great and everything sounds powerful and clear, both the guitars come through great and the drum production is really brutal, like Behemoth's on Demigod.

Oh yea, the new Beyond Fear cd fucking rocks! Everyone buy it!

Fuck that, "The Conductor's Departure" is most likely the best metal album to come out this decade.

This decade? Think of all the hundreds of metal bands that will be release cds in the next four years. I think you're both being silly.


And I got the new Dim Mak, it rips unborn babies from the womb.

Anata's new album is fucking amazing.

My top 3 of this year so far:

Mirrorthrone - Carriers of Dust
Anata - The Conductor's Departure
Celtic Frost - Monotheist

Yeah, I'm sure there'll be kickass CD's... like the new Psycroptic for instance. Kickass CD, very entertaining. Not as memorable as "Scepter Of The Ancients", which was just one ounce of variation away from being a masterpiece. But "The Conductor's Departure" just... blows it away. There's such timelessness in this record. It could have been written anywhere within the last ten years and still be regarded as a quantum leap for deathmetal.

In my opinion anyway. :p

agreed. After listening it to non-stop for a week, I think that "The Conductor's Departure" is musically far above and beyond what other technical bands are doing. The only death metal bands I can put on the same level as Anata in terms of advanced musical thinking are Spawn of Possession and Martyr.
