    Ha! Demoncy, they're originally from Atlanta, Georgia so I hear... Usually quite a few titles from Solitude Productions make every year end list, so far I'm REALLY blown away by the When Nothing Remains album "As All Torn Asunder." And I'm sure when The Howling Void gets around to releasing their newest full length, it'll make the list as well...

    Candlemass' new album is a top doom release for sure... And the latest Mysteriarch album "Mournful Embrace Of Aeons" is gonna blow people away if you're into symphonic, brutal black metal... Vesperian Sorrow's new one too is kick ass ("Stormwinds Of Ages")... I'm currently however backlogged on some 2011 stuff, so a lot of 2012 stuff may not make the next issue of the 'mag...

    The new Overkill and the new Angel Witch albums were both killer.

    A pleasant surprise (for me at least) was the new self-titled Corrosion of Conformity album. They can still kick ass without Pepper Keenan.

    I love the new Angel Witch album and the new Tank album that just came out



    Disappointed with the new Savage album since it's pretty average though this song from them is pretty good


    shame the rest of the album isn't as good

    Lacrima Mortis by The 11th Hour is a good album,I still prefer their debut over this one.

    This is my list so far;

    Cannibal Corpse – Torture
    Asphyx – Deathhammer
    Nekromantheon – Rise,Vulcan Spectre
    Skull Hammer – Destroyers Of The Faith
    Suicidal Angels – Bloodbath
    T.C.F. – Where Madness Reigns
    Angelus Apatrida – The Call


    Listened to alot more new albums,the most are 50/50 albums for me so they are left out of the list.

    For me :

    Wrathprayer : The sun of Moloch (colossal album, nothing comes close to them this year in therms of bestial black metal)

    Christian Mistress : Possession (great classic heavy metal with awesome female vocals)

    Master's Hammer : Vracetje... (unexpected return, best album since Ritual)

    Faustcoven : Hellfire and funeral bells (a beast indeed)

    I haven't even finished it yet but Steel Assassin's WWII: Metal Of Honor is definitely being added to the list. It's certainly not quite as hammering and heavy as their debut but they're diversifying and aiming higher with their songwriting.
