One of the more interesting developments of this decade is Darkthrone completely abandoning black metal to channel their inner Motorhead/Venom/Celtic Frost

I have rated/reviewed seven of those, and had to go all the way to 39 to find the first one!LOL

There's a lot of albums I like in there. But it's kinda of a problem isn't it: we get so few ratings it only takes a few people with similar taste and our charts are completely dominated. We need more people rating/reviewing albums!

Well they brought it back somewhat on the last two. Not exactly A Blaze in the Northern Sky anymore though. LOL

Only 1 album there that has made (the current draft of) my list, Triptykon at #35, though a couple others that barely didn't make the cut

I'm not very active with ratings/reviews though

I have bouts of it. I haven't managed a review in a while, but some days I go through and click a few stars. I'm trying to be more proactive on it with new stuff I hear. With the make up of the users here, it's often the only rating those releases get.

Interesting to see that at least 8 of those will probably make my top 50.

I'm not a huge black metal fan, but I've been quite interested in the rise of the anti-fascist side of it. Bands like Gaylord, Neckbeard Deathcamp and Dawn Ray'd.

5 of those are definites on my list, and there's a few that might with a re-listen.

As far as the lack of ratings go, yeah right now it's just the active forum users (which aren't many) mainly that are rating things. I have a couple suggestions though of getting more people, Discord and Plug.dj servers would be a good way to do so.

no one talks about the band Hexen. fuck i love the band Hexen. the first album State Of Insurgency is just straight up pure thrash with hints and glimmers of what they would do on their next album. their second and finel album Being and Nothingness is a fucking prog thrash masterpiece. i haven't found any other proggy thrash album that can touch it's brilliance. such a god damn shame this band doesn't exist anymore. Being and Nothingness is one of my top 5 favourite albums of the 2010s period. it is so hard to even pick out a favourite track. i can't even imagine what music the follow up to being and nothingness would have sounded like. here is the album cover

I decided on a self-imposed limit of 2 albums per artist, and preferably 1 if there is a clear standout in their discography.

I'm also gonna need to pick a date by which to finalize the 50 albums, or else there is no hope of getting them sorted LOL

Hexen sounds like it might be up my alley. Will definitely give that one a listen before finalising my best of the decade submission. Thumbs Up

^ Not a bad idea. I always find it hard to really compare two releases of different genres. Right now I'm doing a lot of re-listening and sliding each album into the main list where it feels more appropriate, but some are getting changed again as I go. Inevitably there are going to be some albums I absolutely love that get no points and even some of my favourite bands are going to get shafted completely. I'm actually having some inner turmoil over Blind Guardian. I've historically rated their two 2010s albums as 4.5's which would preclude them completely from my top 50. But they're my favourite band of all time and it feels wrong not to include at least one of those albums somewhere. And they probably will get in there because I know it's because they are my favourite band I hold them to a higher standard than anyone else: I know there are power metal albums I like less that got 5 stars from me where At the Edge of Time only has 4.5, because it's not Somewhere Far Beyond. LOL

In fact, I probably have a lot of 4.5's that deserve revaluation due to being growers. Cult of Luna/Julie Christmas is easily one of my most played releases of the last decade and I already had to up that one to 5 stars and it will definitely feature high on the final list even though based on original ratings it wouldn't have got a look in.

Oh and @vmoore, got the Hexen album on and it's damn fine thrash. Unknown after one listen whether it will get a 5/5 and/or break top 50 for for the decade, but it's definite 4.5 first impression.

@Colin, have you ever heard the sludge metal band Obake? I'm re-listening to their debut from 2011 now and forgot how great it is. I could see it being something up your alley:

Colin you've put Opeth - Heritage on your Non-Metal list. That album is in Metal Related so is eligible for the main list, not the bonus Non-Metal round.
