2010 albums - Black metal and beyond


5. Apr. 2010, 2:55

I've been meaning to put out a list but been putting it off for quite some time. Frosthark made a very neat list so I will follow his example. Scores are completely subjective and may change over time. Comments on the ratings are welcome. Top ranking albums are highlighted.

I've kept my journal simple with only a score up until now. Partly because it would be time consuming to write a review on every album that I hear and partly because I don't think I'm qualified to write interesting reviews. I just might add some comments on albums in the future.

    the only release on this list i had previously heard was "scenes from hell". 'if scenes from hell is a 5,' i thought, 'how great must some of these 9s be?' but now having listened through your list, i realized that alcest isn't twice a good as sigh, you're just a total faggot

    Scarius - Bloodletting is an EP actually, mostly recycled stuff that sounds worse than before. It's a pointless cashgrab if I ever saw one. Have you heard the full-length? It has some really cool highlights.

    chris - Ratings are completely subjective and reflect how much I enjoyed the albums and not how objectively good they are, take them with a grain of salt. It's been a while since I last played Scenes from hell so the rating might be a bit skewed because of that.

    Why did you rate Zwartplaag so low? I know it's just your opinion, but I really like it and wonder why you dislike it. About Skitliv, I think it is a great band, but that EP indeed is worthless. I'll stick with their full-lenght.
