    Thornhill came in late and stole the AOTY for mine with The Dark Pool.

    Honourable mention to Car Bomb - Mordial

    Noisy Humbucker Only obsesses over guitars when not playing them.

    Last day of the year and I feel it bears repeating: Moon Tooth - Crux.

    A lot of good albums this year, but only one that deserves the highest honors...



    I will follow up after work with my honorable mentions, since most of what I liked this year has not been mentioned.

    These are the only 2 other guitar-driven albums I feel worthy of being brought up in an AOTY discussion.

    Sludge/Post-Metal... very nice balance between tension and rage, all while being very musical.



    Best Post-Metal release I have heard in many years, never heard of this band prior and fell in love with this album.
