    Time to do some yearlists here? My list is fairly simple: I can’t think of any record that stands out to me in 2011. I hear a lot of people saying 2011 was a brilliant year with great music and many great releases to pick from… I simply haven’t heard them I guess… I’m drawing blanks here.

    All the albums I was looking forward to greatly disappointed me (Cobra Skulls, Nothington, Banquets, Dead and Divine).
    And I was already listening to End Measured Mile in late 2010, so that doesn’t count. πŸ˜‰

    What I can come up with right now:

    Make Do And Mend – End Measured Mile LP (Shield Recordings so it counts)
    Nirvana – Live at The Paramount DVD
    Nirvana – Nevermind reissue 4CD/DVD
    Screaming Trees – Last Words – The Final Recordings – digital
    Supertouch – Lost My Way 7″
    State Of Mind – Knowledge Of Self LP
    All On Black – Weightless CD
    Fellow Project – Stable Life LP
    V/A – Striving Higher Compilation LP (if not for the Blacklisted songs on there alone)
    Nibiru – demo 2011

    I love yearlists. I discovered a couple of awesome bands by checking out what other people suggested as release of the year (like what? Well, like the gaslight anthem, rvivr, red dons, etc). I will most definately make a yearlist (and hope to make a couple of people enthousiastic about what I consider highlights of the year), but not yet… There’s a couple of releases in the mail that I want to listen before it’s lists time. Early october I posted my list on metalfan. Back then, this was my list:
    full length:
    1. Make do and mend – End measured mile
    2. Batillus – Furnace
    3. Herder – Herder
    4. Machine head – Unto the locust
    5. Hause, Dave – Resolutions
    6. Sweet empire – This season needs torches
    7. Downfall of Gaia/In the hearts of emperors – Split
    8. Defeater – Empty days & sleepless nights
    9. Ritual – Paper skin
    10. Rot in hell – As pearls before swine
    just outside the top 10 (but really good): Gentle art of choking, the – The gentle art of choking

    1. Supertouch – Lost my way
    2. Planks – Sollicit to fall
    3. Assassinators, the – I Disse MΓΆrke Tider
    4. Praise – Two songs
    5. Rearranged – Rearranged
    6. Gods and queens – 3rd EP
    7. Midnight menace – The static age
    8. New pokerface – Swingers
    9. Not afraid – Be yourself
    10. 1476 – Smoke in the sky

    I’m curious as to what will change in these lists… πŸ˜‰

    I heard to many good albums this year. But I have been listening a lot to these releases:

    Light bearer: lapsus
    chest pain: chest pain
    sacred love: dividing lines
    fen: epoch
    twitching tongues: sleep therapy
    altar of plagues: mammal
    ageless oblivion: temple of transcendent evolution
    dawes: nothing is wrong
    exhumed: all guts, no glory
    turnstile: pressure to succeed
    primordial: redemption at the puritan’s hand
    mastodon: the hunter

    A lot of shitty things came out this year. Bands that blew me away this year were Mastodon and Machine Head. Mastodon’s “the hunter” is one of my favorite records of all time.

    Coolest show was Every time i die. One of the few bands what still kick ass on stage even they are becoming a big band.

    I’m still waiting for a couple of albums, but I don’t expect these to be in my yearlist to honest… So here it is:
    1. Make do and mend – End measured mile
    2. Batillus – Furnace
    3. Royal headache – Royal headache
    4. Herder – Herder
    5. Anchor – Recovery
    6. Night birds – The other side of darkness
    7. Vektor – Outer isolation
    8. Defeater – Empty days & sleepless nights
    9. Drainland – Trenches – Split
    10. Downfall of gaia – In the hearts of emperors – Split
    11. Misfits The devil’s rain
    12. Hause, Dave – Resolutions
    13. Ensorcelor – Crucifuge
    14. Bratpack – Stupidity returns
    15. Rot in hell – As pearls before swine

    1. Supertouch – Lost my way
    2. Planks – Sollicit to fall
    3. Assassinators, the – I Disse MΓΆrke Tider
    4. Praise – Two songs
    5. Amarok – amarok
    6. Rearranged – Rearranged
    7. Gods and queens – 3rd EP
    8. New pokerface – Swingers
    9. Not afraid – Be yourself
    10. 1476 – Smoke in the sky

    So, a lot has changed in the full length department (compared to my previous list), but almost nothing in the ep part. If you ask me, this is a good year for hardcore and metal!

    yeah… that’s somewhere in the top 20, but… And I see I forgot to add the State of mind ep to the ep list…

    I’m thinking:

    Abolition s/t LP
    Foundation ‘When The Smoke Clears’
    Inherit 7″
    Wayfarer ‘Letumus Cathari’
    Breaking Point ‘Judgement’
    Unholy Majesty, Iron Curtain and Final Rage demos.

    I haven’t heard the new Ninebar album, but I’m sure that will be in the list.
