    Yet to be listed on this thread, that i enjoyed: (out of 4)

    Daniel Lioneye - Vol. II :yesway::yesway::yesway:
    (Gets a little repetitive, but very, very good)
    deadmau5 - 4x4=12 :yesway::yesway::yesway:
    (Same as Daniel Lioneye)
    Cradle of Filth - Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa :yesway::yesway::yesway::yesway:
    (Best Cradle album since Nymphetamine, and is tied with Nymph as best since Midian)
    Behemoth - Evangelia Heretika :yesway::yesway::yesway::yesway:
    (live, i know, but imho worthy of list)
    1349 - Demonoir :yesway::yesway:
    (Enjoyed it, but too much filler with those instrumental/noise tracks, not enough METAL)
    Willow Wisp - Antihuman Manifesto :yesway::yesway::yesway::yesway:
    (Im a whore for Willow Wisp, and have loved every release as much as every other. Perfect band, in my opinion)

    Adding to this list:

    Tesseract - Concealing Fate EP
    Breach The Void - The Monochromatic Era
    After The Burial - In Dreams
    Divinity - The Singularity
    M.A.N - Massive Audio Nerve
    Meshuggah - Alive
    WorC - When The Day Forms

    I'd also like to add Chimp Spanner to that list, but I got the album before he signed to Basick, which I think was late 2009 if I remember? :scratch:

    I'm looking forward to the new Monuments, Talanas and Nociceptor albums too.

    Enslaved- Axioma Ethica Odini (Album Of The Year easily)
    Deftones- Diamond Eyes (Close runner up)
    Agalloch- Marrow Of The Spirit
    Kanye West- My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
    Sufjan Stephens- The Age Of Adz
    Oceansize- Self Preserved While The Bodies Float Up
    Cloudkicker- Beacons
    Rosetta- The Determinism Of Morality
    Tera Melos- Pentagonian Rats
    Jonsi- Go
    Underoath- Disambiguation
    Kid CuDi- Man On The Moon II
    The Dillinger Escape Plan- Option Paralysis
    The National- High Violet
    Meshuggah- Alive DVD
    Arcade Fire- The Suburbs
    Six Gallery- Breakthroughs In Modern Art
    Shining- Black Jazz
    Called To Arms- Peril And The Patient
    Kylesia- Spiral Shadow
    Fear Factory- Mechanize
    Rotting Christ- Aelio



    Not in order but these are the standouts.
    You would think this is a Periphery forum opposed to a guitar forum......The album was cool for a few weeks but it is not the classic album a lot of you claim it to be. If [id] was longer, it might have made mine. Same with the new After The Burial.

    the good:
    Attila - Rage (no one seems to like them but damn if this wasn't infectious)
    Within the Ruins - Invade
    Veil of Maya - [id]
    Levi/Werstler - Avalanche of Worms
    Volumes - The concept of dreaming
    Whitechapel: New Era of corruption
    Danza III
    Karnivool - Sound awake
    The acacia Strain - Wormwood
    AILD - The powerless rise
    Cyclamen/Haunted shores split (very well done)
    The Ocean - Heliocentric ( amazing album)
    Cyclamen - Senjyu
    Chimp spanner - At the Dreams edge (it's freaking chimp)
    Both of cloudkicker's albums

    The bad:
    Periphery's self Titled ( i liked it at first but the novelty wore off too fast because i realized i had heard the whole album already, pretty much.)
    soulfly's new album
    Kron's new album
    Avenged sevenfold's new album
    Haarp's new album. BORING
    Tre watson - Lexicon of the human subconscious ( now understand i'm not putting it here to plug it OR to say i hated it, i made it after all. i'm just looking at the new album and feel as though lexicon could have been so much better.)
    The ocean - Anthropocentric (all that buildup for what? and heliocentric was so good too... )
    Tesseract - Concealing Fate EP ( kept us waiting for that long for something that was honestly subpar/par at best. yeah, that's my opinion. crucify me now. i love tesseract as people, but i guess the band just ain't my thing)

    Okay these have all been said but these are my top 5:

    Deftones - Diamond Eyes is the single best release of 2010 in my opinion.
    Periphery - Periphery INSTRUMENTAL is really really bad ass. I cannot STAND Spencer Sortello anymore. At first I put up with him, but once I bought the instrumental Cd there is NO REASON to ever go back to the regular one. But the instrumental = :hbang:
    Tony Danza - Danza III
    Beneath The Massacre EP
    After the Burial - In Dreams

    (Probably) my ten favorite albums of 2010, in no particular order:

    Mono
    - Holy Ground: NYC Live with the Wordless Music Orchestra
    Agnes Obel - Philharmonics
    Pantha du Prince - Black Noise
    Alcest - Écailles de lune
    Jónsi - Go
    Rosetta
    - A Determinism of Morality
    Agalloch - Marrow of the Spirit
    World's End Girlfriend - Seven Idiots
    Janelle Monáe - The ArchAndroid (Suites II and III)
    Versailles - Jubilee -Method of Inheritance-

    :wub: all of these.

    I need to listen to Pan Sonic's last album Gravitoni some more, though. It might take a spot. <_<

    Ihsahn - After gets an honorable mention from me - I like it a lot, but it just didn't hit me in the same way that angL did.

    After about 10 seconds thought, my faves have been After and Valley Of Smoke. Probably loads more if I could be bothered thinking about it.

    I have to add Oceano-Contaigon. Now, I really dont like deathcore, But this album is really good, I was kind of lukewarm to it at first, but its a grower with some great songs.

    What I really liked for 2010 was:

    VoM - [id]
    Within The Ruins - Invade
    Wrethed - Beyond The Gate
    Conducting From The Grave - Revenants
    Arsis - Starve For The Devil
    After The Burial - In Dreams

    What I didn't like:
    For Today - Breaker
    Periphery - Periphery

    I couldn't bond with any of those albums. I like For Today's other albums but Breaker wasn't anything different besides the spoken word parts.

    Periphery was okay, at best. I saw them live, and they are all good musicians, but other than that, meh. It seems like they can only go up though, so I'm excited for future releases from them.

    Kind of a quiet year for me this year. I think I discovered more old music I love than new music which was released :nuts:

    Anyway;

    Front Line Assembly - Improved Electronic Device
    Amazing album. The percussion is just getting better and better so far as I'm concerned, they're still amazing.

    KoRn - Korn III
    It's not exactly like it was, but it's enough of a step for me to be happy with it. An interesting step back towards their drier sound of the debut, albeit without Head.

    Mnemic - Sons of The System
    I still don't like it as much as the first couple of albums, but it doesn't change the fact that it's an amazing album.

    Rob Zombie - Hellbilly Deluxe II
    It's nothing new, but fuck it's an awesome album. A step back to the cheese factor [​IMG]

    Unter Null - Moving On
    Fucking amazing blend of Industrial electronics and various other drum'n'bass/electronica oriented styles.

    :Wumpscut: - Siamese Studies
    Yet another solid album from Mr. Ratzinger.



    Yeah it's been rather a quiet year. Last year was really excellent, guess lal my favorite bands have a new one in the works for next year :lol:
