Note: The other thread doesn't get HOFed so everyone should put their year end lists in this thread again (preferrably with the Top 100 numbers at the end for comparison's sake) in order to preserve individual lists in the future.

With the amount of people on this forum who listen to "kvlt" black metal, I'm surprised there weren't more people who voted for the new Varathron. I think I was the only one. What's up with that, black metal fans of the Braveboard?

BIG THANKS LOAF!

Stam1na, my #1 didn't list. A real shame this band is barely visible anywhere (minus Finland maybe?). Just top top notch and refreshing.

Edguy not listing I understand, but Gamma Ray on the other hand, why in the BLUE HELL not list? Crime against humanity. :lol:

1-Stam1na - SLK DNP
2-Vader - Tibi Et Igni 14
3-Alcest - Shelter 32
4-Anubis Gate - Horizons 68
5-Evergrey - Hymns For The Broken 43
6-Archspire - The Lucid Collective DNP
7-Cannibal Corpse - A Skeletal Domain 9
8-Gamma Ray - Empire Of The Undead DNP
9-Whispered - Shogunate Macabre DNP
10-Skull First - Chasing the Dream 70
11-Behemoth - The Satanist 3
12-Mastodon - Once More 'Round The Sun 7

Post Re: Braveboard Top Albums of 2014
Once again, huge thanks to LOAF for running this annual survey.

I think this is the first time ever my #1 matches the list's #1. Kudos to Warrel & crew for an outstanding metal album! Not surprisingly, half of my list didn't make it, haha. Anyway, here's how my list fared:

1. Sanctuary - The Year The Sun Died #1! Woo!
2. Vader - Tibi Et Igni #14
3. Judas Priest - Redeemer of Souls #6
4. Equilibrium - Erdentempel DNR, weird
5. DragonForce - Maximum Overload DNR not surprised
6. Exodus - Blood In, Blood Out #4
7. Sinbreed - Shadows DNR not surprised
8. Gamma Ray - Empire of the Undead DNR. Huh?
9. Valknacht - Le Sacrifice d'Ymir DNR not surprised
10. Iced Earth - Plagues of Babylon #66
11. Dust Bolt - Awake The Riot DNR not surprised
12. Vestal Claret - The Cult of Vestal Claret DNR; a little surprised, I discovered them through someone on the board (forgot who)
13. Allegaeon - Elements of the Infinite #56. Surprisingly made the list
14. Overkill - White Devil Armory #11
15. Dawnbringer - Night of the Hammer DNR. Huh? Thought there was more love for these guys on this board.

Honorable Mentions:
16. Sabaton - Heroes #42
17. Mastodon - Once More 'Round The Sun #7
18. Edgedown - Statues Fall DNR, pretty obscure stuff anyhow
19. Portrait - Crossroads #23. Figured this one wouldn't even come close, surprised at how high it placed
20. Helstar - This Wicked Nest #95.. yeah!
21. Machine Head - Bloodstone & Diamonds #94
22. Gloryful - Ocean Blade DNR. not surprised
23. Cavalera Conspiracy - Pandemonium DNR haha
24. Wolf - Devil Seed DNR - used to be a big Wolf following here and this is pretty much their best album in a decade. Ah well.
25. Opeth - Pale Communion #16
26. Alestorm - Sunset on the Golden Age #81
27. Anubis Gate - Horizons #68. Surprised this one placed!
28. Skull Fist - Chasing The Dream #70
