Default Best of 2010.

Just wondering what everyone's favorite new album has been this year.

There have been a lot of really incredible albums come out so far and the year is almost at an end.

A great desert blues band from Niger called Etran Finatawa released "Tarkat Tajje / Letīs go!"

http://www.etranfinatawa.com/home.html

I saw them a few times last year and they were great. I bought all their albums including a few extras for friends.

Opeth - Live at the Royal Albert Hall

The only other album I have from 2010 is Warp Riders by the The Sword, just got it last week so I haven't thoroughly listened to it yet, good so far though.

2 of my favorites that I can think of without checking release dates are Truth & Salvage Co.'s self-title debut and Duke Robillard's 'Passport to the Blues'.

Wow, just looked through my iTunes to see what I've added this year. Besides importing an old iTunes library and my own bands recordings / mixes, I've only added 1 new album this year.

Greg MacPherson - Mr. Invitation.

Tool AND Opeth are in the studio (or will be soon) so 2011 should be a good year!

Rush too I think... but as hard as I try I just can't get into anything after Power Windows.

I know I heard too... I CAN'T WAIT

After Watershed, I'm really excited to hear what Opeth will crank out next.

Opeth are currently recording, I'm hoping they don't play it safe with this album. Watershed was a tad disappointing to me, while it had moments it was basically The Ghost Reveries 2. I'd like to see more of the innovation that made them great. They've never topped My Arms/Still Life in my opinion, those albums are the definitive Opeth albums, the later albums have their unique early mellow style stripped in favour of 70s prog/new prog (see pt) homages.

Axenrot is a definite step up from Lopez though, wouldn't you say?


Rhapsody of Fire's latest album is good. Enjoyed Sabaton's 'Coat of Arms' too, although it's basically the same as all their other albums.

Not at all, Lopez was a very expressive, emotive drummer who brought in some really cool latin and jazz influences, there is a real cool shuffle feel with him drumming and he knows how to balance taste and chops.

I think his unique drum style really shows on Damnation, Axe couldn't play that, Axe is too traditionally metal.

Lopez never blasted, Axe is one of those drummers whose play style is completely ingrained with it, he is a death drummer.

Only album I bought that came out this year was Distant Relatives by Nas and Damien Marley. There's a few good songs on the album, although I was a little disappointed with it.

I'm excited for CAKE's new album coming out Jan.11

I agree, I think Lopez's groove is nearly unparalleled, but I think Axe was just trying to impress with his first album with them. I think he too has nice groove but just leaves less space. He has great potential, and if anyone can replace Lopez's place with them it would be him.

Four Tet - There Is Love In You

This was an incredible first listen in a dark room late at night, and i still believe its one of the best electronic albums i've heard, but it hasn't grown on my as i'd hoped. Probably over-listened at the start!

Also in a similar vein was Caribou - Swim, v.good.

High violet never quite hit the heights everyone said it did for me, a bit too downbeat and slightly samey. Still good though. Same with Arcade Fire's, haven't managed to get into it at all, perhaps because its so mammothly long.

YES, CAKE AND TOOL 2011!

He is an excellent drummer, Hades Rising by Bloodbath really shows off what he is capable of and I remember there being a really complex solo in I think it was Porcelain Heart. I don't have a problem with Axe, I can just name plenty of other drummers that can do what he does just as well, I can't say the same for Lopez.

For me I'd say:

Watain - Lawless Darkness
Weapon - From the Devil's tomb
Dragobrath - Fra Myrer Taake

and the new Melechesh album was alright but not as great as the last

I found this year to be a bit slow... depends on what you listen to though. I didn't give the new accept album a big chance, just doesn't seem the same without Udo.

Hmm... a black metal fan, don't see too many of those on this particular forum.

Watain's new album was good, perhaps a tad generic though, certainly no Casus Luciferi.

Personally I don't like the NWOBHM (New wave of "black" heavy metal).

A lot of black metal artists, particularly those that have been around since the 90s are taking too much of traditional metal and painting it black stylistically.

Too many throw backs, too much unoriginal song writing, the same old tricks/riffs regurgitated to a new 100 page lyrical booklet.

Under all their theatrics, Watain are one of the prime examples of this trend, I just wish Black Metal bands would continue to push forward instead of looking backwards.

Norway's Cor Scorpii are a band I feel are moving in the right direction. Wolves in the Throne Room and Cobalt from the USBM scene as well.

I think we agree on a few things, how fantastic was the new Mar De Grises, I cannot believe how many incredible doom albums Chile is putting out at the moment.

I don't mean to be rude, but speaking of unoriginal song writings I would say Cor Scorpii is a prime example.

There are plenty of great BM bands with original music, it's just not easy to pick them out amongst all the shitty bands that are out there. One example would be Nyktalgia, all their instruments are played really well and their music is very original.

Caro Emerald, a Dutch pop/jazz singer, released a very good album that has hit big in the top charts. Her tunes are very catchy. Not that I'm implying that her debut this year is one of the best albums that have come out, maybe not at all. But she's worth mentioning.

Well, I would have to say:

Something I went BACK to- Larry Young- "unity." Hadnt heard, or put in for a while, Elvin still kills.

But for NEW albums, MElvins- "The bride Screamed Murder!"

Plus, I don't remember if came out in 2009 or 2010

Portishead "third"

And POS- "NEVER BETTER"

Haha I had to look up Third too, one of my favorite albums, it was 2008 surprisingly, the youtube feature of them rehearsing was brilliant.

My favorite album of 2010 is Blond Redhead's Penny Sparkle.

[quote=Frost;786565]Hmm... a black metal fan, don't see too many of those on this particular forum.


Count me in. I prefer the almighty Emperor, Satyricon (not all but most. Yes I DO like Rebel Extravaganza!), ULVER, and Enslaved.

I am not really a fan of Dimmu Borgir completely. I like STORMBLAST, but not so much some of the newer things.

I think Cradle is good at points, they are Black metal-esque?! Seen them, it was on the Cruelty tour, Very good, but they went south.

Id say Ulver, being what they are amazing. Nattens Madigral is one of the BEst BM albums, besides Mayhems, De Mysterious dom Sathanas and In the Nightside Eclipse.

Not a fan of Immortal though. Dark Throne is ok if you want primal stuff.

I love the aesthetic of black metal. You can't just put Sigil of Baphomet or pictures of "demons" in your art and be great as a band. I prefer Emperor as THE BEST black metal band, ever.

Ther is a group out of California though, who actually arent that bad. Sothis? Reminds of older black metal.

How can you forget 1349! YES!

The track they did for amnesty international? Yeah that is cool! Live at Roseland DVD is awesome as well. 2008? Wow time flys.

That is fair enough, you are certainly not alone in liking Watain, Terrorizer publicised the hell out of their latest release. Personally, I don't really like black metal that tries to be crust punk, or black metal that is heavy and raw, purely for the sake of being heavy and raw.

I have no real problem with heaviness in general but there is a difference between being heavy and being heavy to be "brutal" for death metallists or "grim" for black. If there is a point to the heaviness, if it reflects upon something, that is a different story. I find Watain are all style, with little substance.

I didn't find your comments on Cor Scorpii rude, each to their own, I find Cor Scorpii are attempting to do something with a more progressive strain of black metal. I'd agree with the Windir comment, but I don't see where the issue with Cor Scorpii sounding like Windir is when as you said, half the members are from Windir. I wouldn't expect them to abandon their artistic dreams because the band failed.

I agree with the comment on the shitty bands and happen to be a huge fan of Nyktalgia myself, they are fantastic, glad to hear of someone else listening to them. Their last album wasn't quite up to the level of their debut though, still incredibly solid however.

I have no real problem with heaviness in general but there is a difference between being heavy and being heavy to be "brutal" for death metallists or "grim" for black. If there is a point to the heaviness, if it reflects upon something, that is a different story. I find Watain are all style, with little substance.

Thanks, yeah when talking to people some get very offended if you don't agree with them. That's why I didn't want to come across as rude. Watain, for me seems to have only gotten the publicity as a side affect of their music. They're new album has a lllot of depth to it and they've had the same image since they began. It's not so much an image for them as it is a part of what they practice. I agree the first Nyktalgia album was better, but both still great they haven't lost/changed their style at all.

P.S. don't mind the delayed response I don't get e-mails from the site so I didn't see this until now.
