So LOAF, out of curiosity, what's your process?
Cause I'm actually in the middle of writing a program that incidentally scans a directory of text files with similar formatting, scanning each file looking for comma's as delimiters.

Changing the delimiters a bit, you'd just need to instantiate a class for each album (or preprocess candidates and update) and assign the weight-related score on-the-fly.

And what list will LOAF's guaranteed annual addition of Bohren & Der Club of Gore belong to?


Haha!! You got me.

Or, how about we stop trying to change what has been completely fine for eleven years running? If people wanna add their non-metal let 'em, but let's not start making rules 'cause that will just suck all the fun out of it.

I like that. All I can do is make suggestions, I don't wanna control peoples decisions. Except when they don't format it properly or say 'in no particular order' haha.

Yeah, boom, exactly.

I include a lot of non-metal picks on my lists, but I know damn well they're not going to influence the big tally. (rare exception this year: Perturbator, which is about as metal as non-metal gets.) What's my alternative, post something at #15 which I'm pretending to care about?

Thank you for that. Probably my favourite discovery from doing the list this year. Been playing the shit out of it.

I don't mean to be negative, but I feel like if this trend continues over the next few years I'll have to quit doing this (pass it on maybe). I know people appreciate it but this was the first time I really questioned its worth. Hopefully I'm over reacting because one bad year out of 11 isn't bad haha.

13 years and a 1,000 posts later and I have no idea what's going on in this thread.

Wow......... Rigor Mortis - Slaves to the Grave doesn't make the list, and only mentioned once in this entire thread, by Comaghee on page 4? How the heck did everyone miss this!?

It's pretty good. I didn't hear it until this year but I doubt it would have made my top 15

01. Behemoth – The Satanist - #3
02. Exodus – Blood In, Blood Out - #4
03. At The Gates – At War With Reality - #10
04. Triosphere – The Heart Of The Matter - #76
05. Arch Enemy – War Eternal - #19
06. Falconer – Black Moon Rising - #15
07. Holy Moses – Redefined Mayhem - DNR
08. Vader – Tibi Et Igni - #14
09. Cannibal Corpse – A Skeletal Domain - #9
10. Amoral – Fallen Leaves & Dead Sparrows - DNR
11. Accept – Blind Rage - #22
12. Slough Feg – Digital Resistance - #8
13. Crimson Shadows – Kings Among Men - DNR
14. Tankard – R.I.B - DNR
15. Wolf – Devil Seed - DNR

My top 15 are close enough to the Braveboard list. I can't believe WOLF and Tankard did not register. Didn't expect Crimson Shadows or Amoral to in any case. I'm happy to see Triosphere get #76 - they had serious potential to be #1 but the album released too late in the year and I didn't get time to spin it enough.

Wish I'd been familiar with Crippled Black Phoenix before the years' end-- it would have been top 5 easily for me.

Late to the party, good to see Overkill all the way up at #11.

LOVE W.D.A. A fine release in my opinion from the New Yorkers. :beer:
