    I was editing the whole damn Show No Mercy Top 40 Metal albums list and then my fucking browser crashed, so you will just have to look at it here.

    Holy crap, Royal Thunder. Shit's great.

    I wonder what bullshit radio rap or ditzy pop or dull as dishwater 30th generation indie bland out will make it on there instead of WIXIW.

    They will be, as will Pallbearer and Baroness. I can almost guarantee that. I love these metal lists though. This year was widely acknowledged as not so good for black metal, and it's a boon in disguise, as there are so many other metal sub-genres that created great music. Grind, doom, thrash, hardcore and (in my mind, especially) trad metal all really shone. Between Baroness, Pallbearer, Dawnbringer and now Royal Thunder, I think the old-school metal sounding records from this year are my biggest surprise.

    Do you follow the A.V. Club's feature Loud? Covers metal, hardcore, noise, and general other unpleasantries. They did a best of the year list with some interesting sounding stuff. I need to give Pallbearer another chance. I got so turned off by the classic rock vocals that I just wrote the entire thing off. My distaste for classic rock radio is so fucking strong that I've let it ruin a lot of fairly decent music.

    For me, that was the stuff I grew up on (along with grunge and 90s alt radio, which is basically classic rock) so I'm loving all these new bands throwing back to those sounds.

    I'll check out that A.V. Club feature. Sounds totally up my alley, and after this year I'm going to start following metal in earnest again. Most of the bright spots in rock this year were at least tangentially metal.

    Dawnbringer put out one hell of an album. I just can't stop listening to it. I was glad to see it top popmatters year end metal list. Pallbearer's record was also great.

    One record that I think is vastly underappreciated is Dragged Into Sunlight's new album. Might be my favorite metal album of the year.

    Thanks! I will check it out. You should check out Royal Thunder - CVI. It fights in nicely with Dawnbringer and Pallbearer (and they're touring with Pallbearer and Enslaved next year!)

    What? How did I not hear about that tour?

    That list is pretty great, besides omitting Faustcoven's new one. Also I would have had Inverloch in the top 10

    That would be an awesome show if it wasn't for Enslaved. At least I could leave early.

    As far as the proto metal sound that was popular this year, I'm surprised Kadavar wasn't on more lists. That record is great

    FYI LOUD is a monthly feature, written by the same guy that writes most of the reviews for the heavier stuff there. I haven't checked it out in a while, but I've discovered a lot of really good stuff from it in the past.

    I do like black metal, but I didn't like Enslaved's live show at all when I saw them in 2011. It just struck me as cheesy.

    It is absolutely unbelievable that WIXIW didn't make the top 50 albums of the year.

    Agreed; I'm also shocked by the Laurel Halo, Thee Oh Sees, and Voices from the Lake omissions as well (and to some extent Icon Give Thank, Four Tet, and Holly Herndon).

    Not really surprised by Voices From The Lake, Pitchfork has always given serious techno a bit of sideways recognition but it's definitely not a priority, and I'd say that album is maybe too niche for their year end list. Laurel Halo's album really doesn't do it for me, but I guess it's been pretty well regarded this year, although I'm not all that surprised it ended up in the honorable mentions. Again, probably a bit too niche. I still have no idea how WIXIW isn't in the top 20, let alone top 50. It was well reviewed, it's the best Liars album in years and years, and they're an act Pitchfork has always supported.

    Thanks for mentioning LOUD. Without that I would have missed the Panopticon album which I am loving.

    They're from Europe, that's just how they are. It's better than when Immortal just gets falling over drunk on stage and trolls the audience. If you haven't listened to any of their recorded work check out Eld or Below The Lights, those albums are masterpieces.

    That's disappointing about Immortal. They put out a few of the best black metal albums. Then again, so did Enslaved. I'm stoked to see them, but I feel like I might have to leave after the twin jet engines of Pallbearer and Royal Thunder.

    Enslaved isn't bad live, but he is right they do some cheesy shit, unless you like hand clapping and beating your chest while saying oi.

    Ah you're right, switch Spiritualized with Grimes and give her an unfair advantage of being in the top 5 and we are getting there.

    Oh and Julia Holter can switch with the second Death Grips.album lol

    Grizzly Bear will get #11 so they can put one Death Grips album in the 10-20 range and the other in top 10.
