I suppose I will start looking at some of the lists of best metal albums for 2009. Mine will be ready here pretty soon along with a Year in Review post. In the meantime, I like to look at what others think and ridicule them. Because it makes me feel big. So there. Anyone who takes offense, who cares?
So here we go (http://www.noisecreep.com/2009/11/23/top-10-albums-of-2009/):
Mastodon: Crack the Skye
Suffocation: Blood Oath
Converge: Axe to Fall
Alice in Chains: Black Gives Way to Blue
Swallow the Sun: New Moon
Immortal: All Shall Fall
Between the Buried and Me: The Great Misdirect
I'm not sure if that list is in any sort of order or not. Some of the list does not bother me, other albums do. Mastodon, Between the Buried and Me, Converge, and Coalesce will appear on virtually everyone's Best of 2009 list. Except mine. Because I don't like any of those albums. Bwah hah hah hah. I'm disturbed that Swallow the Sun's new album is the same name as the recent Twilight movie abomination. I have not heard it yet, which is weird because I love the band. I'm not sure any of these albums will appear on my list quite honestly. Not to say I don't enjoy any of them, just not enough to be my favorite albums of the year.
