it's a hard hard pick... these are my favorites though

















I know these are a lot but it's tough narrowing it down... there's a few more still to be released though, like the new Tenhi and Vektor.

My 2011 favorites at the moment. Inquisition, Absu and more could easily end up taking it, in my opinion. The Gates of Slumber, Ulcerate, Condemned, haven't even heard the new Esoteric yet...

AltarsofMadness turned me on to that new Putridity and it's pretty ridiculous. It's up there for me too.

I personally think that The Prodigal Empire was a huge let-down. Couldn't get into one single song. Their debut EP was awesome /so much better IMO.

Noisear - Subvert The Dominant Paradigm
Wormrot - Dirge
Gride - Záškuby Chaosu
Brutal Truth - End Time
Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats - Bloodlust
Craft - Void
Death Grips - Ex Military
Yob - Atma
Beastie Boys - Hot Sauce Committee Part 2
Stoner Kebab - Superdoom

...If I had to pick a top 10 it would change everyday but, these are some of my favorites for sure. That Uncle Acid album probably gets more plays than anything else the last few weeks... Big thanks to whoever mentioned it a while back.

Really? I thought the EP was solid, but enjoyed the album more. Different strokes, I guess!

BTW - looking forward to First Fragments album, when's that due?

inevitable end - the oculus
and
noisear were the top two

maruta - forward...
exhumed - all guts no glory
tom waits - bad as me
gridlink, condemned, esoteric... that's all i can think of at the moment

I'm going to post this again just because the artwork is so ridiculously bad for such a great album... I'm sure it's been overlooked so if you like doom this album takes you through every style and blends it really well without having a copy/paste feel. Really fun album

For me, it actually turned out to be the new Cynic. The album grew on me immensely.

upon further inspection i was surprised how much good shit came out this year. enough so that i can assemble a top 10:

sulaco - build & burn
flourishing - the sum of all fossils
electro quarterstaff - aykroyd
mastodon - the hunter
autopsy - macabre eternal
absu - abzu
maruta - forward into regression
zebulon pike - space is the corpse of time
noisear - subvert the dominant paradigm
hella - tripper

Esoteric, Mitochondrion, Blut Aus Nord, and Gridlink were my favorites this year.

Edit: Forgot about Execration. Really liked that one.
