I'll be opening the vote thread shortly for the annual best of year. 

Use this thread for any comments/discussions on the best of 2021 to save cluttering up the voting thread.

Looking forward to seeing everyone's lists as there's always a few gems to discover.

Update: vote now open at...

I agree, I'm spoilt for choice and there's still a few I haven't heard properly yet.

Yeah, I may attempt a sort of preliminary list later today, but it'll almost certainly see some changes before the deadline, because I still have some stuff to check out, and I also have a lot of albums I still need to sort out in terms of trying to rank them, so the order will likely be way different between now and the end of January. 

I also know me, Adam and probably a few others will need to give http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/album/aquilus/bellum-i a serious shot sometime before the end of voting, just based on how much we loved the debut. Haven't heard it in full yet, but I heard a couple tracks and it seems really good.

Well, Torn Arteries by Carcass is far and away the best thing I have heard this year. The real problem is sorting out everything else.

I started the year off by trying to check out as much new stuff as possible but slackened off a bit during the summer.

These are albums I have really enjoyed and that I'm sure will make my list (in no particular order so far):

Aenigmatum – Deconsecrate
Cognizance – Upheaval
Diskord – Degenerations
Papagnu – Holoceno

Ad Nauseam - Imperative Imperceptible Impulse
Sunless – Ylem
Gojira – Fortitude
Cryptosis - Bionic Swarm
Cannibal Corpse - Violence Unimagined
Carcass – Torn Arteries
Cognizance – Upheaval
Motorpsycho – Kingdom of Oblivion
Cambion - Conflagrate the Celestial Refugium
Ad Nauseam - Imperative Imperceptible Impulse
Aborted – ManiaCult
Silenus - The Garden is Burning
Pupil Slicer - Mirrors
Enrapture - Another Green Drought

Here are some more which I have enjoyed but still feel I need more time with:

Ophidian I - Desolate
Pestilence - Exitivm
Mare Cognitum - Solar Paroxysm
Sarcoma - Alluvial
Erdve - Savigaila
Portal - Avow
Silenus - The Garden is Burning
Cerebral Rot - Excretion of Mortality
Spectral Lore – Ετερόφωτος
Swelling Repulsion – The Severed Path
Enforced - Kill Grid
Alustrium - Monument to Silence
Sweaty Mammoth - low n slow
Kaptan Kadavra - Kaptan Kadavra

This year just like last has been great, tons of bangers. Especially with nu metal, and Kosmonaut's became a new grunge/stoner favorite.

@Colin and Mark, know of any good sludge for me to check out from this year?

Death rather than sludge seems to be monopolising my list this year. However, if you haven't heard it, the Papangu album on my list is fucking brilliant. Proggy sludge fused with stoner and zeuhl elements. Highly recommended. You could also try the Sweaty Mammoth album which is like melodic sludge with a classic rock edge.

I was hoping for a new Crowbar album but that's looking like next year now. I was supposed to see them support Sepultura last week but the European tour got cancelled 😢

Converge & Chelsea Wolfe - Bloodmoon I

Dridge - Curing


There's also new Cult of Luna if you're into them

you might even like the new Darkthrone, it's halfway to doom metal

I'm so behind on new releases this year. Going to need a serious catch up in order to put together a submission.

I'd forgotten there was a new Aquilus album coming out. One I definitely need to hear.

Dridge - Curing



This kicks ass, I was at first half-hoping for a Floor cover with that title, but this is more than that. Reminds me of Obituary through a sludge filter, definitely listening to the rest of the album right now.

I'll check those other albums out too, I do like what I've heard of Darkthrone's more recent stuff, so I could see myself liking that.

Finally got round to giving Aborted - Maniacult a full listen - awesome brutal death metal. This will probably kick something off my list.

A contender for my #1 spot. 

It's currently between this, Mare Cognitum, Pharaoh and Epica. 

Iron Maiden are not quite getting a look in this year, which is unexpected. Although I like Senjutsu more than some seem to.
