I dislike it. It's just too badly produced for me to even bother listening to ever again. Plus the songs aren't that great.

I hated it, one of the worst albums ive ever heard, and the production defines the term "ear rape". dry.gif

Unfortunately Death Magnetic didn't catch my attention that much either.

I've posted in this thread, but

1.) Cynic: Traced In Air came out not long ago and is simply awesome

2.) I forgot to mention the kick-ass album of our very own Emir Hot: Sevdah Metal biggrin.gif

From the latter one the tracks You and Sevdah Metal Rhapsody are both worth to check out cool.gif

No dude, I hate metallica with a passion lol. But I'll admit, it's a biased opinion because Lars annoys me lol

Did you see the youtube vid of lars thanking the youtube fans for their covers? What a little wiener haha.




I wish kirk would do a solo album, I'd probably give it chance.

Nope. Worst album of the year. Anybody who promotes their CD sounding like "Old Metallica" has to be bad right?

My favorites has to be this year are-
Opeth - Watershed
Scar Symmetry - Holographic Universe
Anathema - Hindsight

Since 08 is finally over, I shall finish my top 10 list.

6. Maybeshewill- Not For Want of Trying

7. God is an Astronaut- God is an Astronaut

8. Laura- Yes Maybe No

9. Subheim- Approach

10. Russian Circles- Station

Yeah, pretty shocking that I ended up not putting a lot of metal/extreme metal on the list for the year. Seems like ambient/drone/doom/post-rock stuff got to me more than Death Metal and Black Metal

I really liked Chinese Democracy and Death Magnetic this year. I think the "old" bands are back, though Metallica could do better.

I like a lot of the albums above, particularly black ice, but i'm going to have to go for something like avenged sevenfold

simply because i admire the way they've advanced their style, and of course the masterpiece of ' a little piece of

heaven'. i havn't actually listened to trivium before ohmy.gif , but it looks like it might be worth a listen and my friends are

always going on about them.

I completely forgot about slipknot, ohmy.gif , but that album is brilliant

Favourites this year:-

Testament- formation of Damnation
Ac/dc- black ice
Gojira- The way of the flesh
Death Angel- Killing Season
Unearth- The March

I also thought death Magnetic was horrible but it was trumped for worst album by gnr chinese democracy ( i cant believe it took axl 14 years and 4 guitar players to release such a trainwreck)

I liked some solos on Chinese Democracy, can't say it was that bad. And calling Death Magnetic worst album of the year is kind of weird, it's bad for being metallica since it's just standard rock/metal or whatever, but it was far from as horrible as St. Anger.

hmmm,
This is a tough one. I spent most the year exploring some older music as well as some local bands so I haven't really seen a good portion of new albums.

That being said, some albums I really like that came out last year are:

- Bonded by Blood - Feed the Beast
- Amon Amarth - Twilight of the Thunder God
- Testament - Formation of Damnation

My favorite is:

Earache Records - Thrashing like a Maniac (but that's a compilation so it doesn't really count)

Top albums 2008:
Amon Amarth - Twilight of the Thunder God
Gojira - The Way of All Flesh
Opeth - Watershed
Sabaton - The Art of War
Scar Symmetry - Holgraphic in Design
Ayreon - 01011001
Poets of the Fall - Revolution Roulette

Biggest disapointment award goes to:
In Flames - A Sense of Purpose

A very bland and boring album without any of the ingredients that made all the other albums awesome.

For me it's Gojira - The Way of All Flesh!

I also bought Children of Bodom's Blooddrunk and In Flames' A Sense of Purpose. They were ok I guess, but they didn't really catch my attention. I just listened to them for a couple of weeks after they came out, but then I got tired of them.

Now I'm waiting for Lamb of God's new album Wrath! Hopefully it will be one of my favorites of 2009
