Post Re: Brave board Top 100 Albums of 2015
yeah the rankings are a bit different. I used a really weird equation (((sc * ((sc + x)*(x-sc))/(x * sc))) where x=16

which looks turns this:

1. Sanctuary - The Year The Sun Died
2. Bloodbath - Grand Morbid Funeral
3. Revel In Flesh - Death Kult Legions
4. Vader - Tibi Et Igni
5. Ill Omen - Enthroning The Bonds Of Abhorrence
6. The Haunted - Exit Wounds
7. Dead Congregation - Promulgation Of The Fall
8. Artificial Brain - Labyrinth Constellation
9. Massacre - Back From Beyond
10. Taake - Stridens Hus
11. Triptykon - Melana Chasmata
12. Abigor - Leytmotif Luzifer
13. Obituary - Inked In Blood
14. Sinister - The Post - Apocalyptic Servant
15. Cannabis Corpse - From Wisdom To Baked

to this:

abigor leytmotif luzifer , 7.0
artificial brain labyrinth constellation , 12.0
bloodbath grand morbid funeral , 15.75
cannabis corpse from wisdom to baked , 1.9375
dead congregation promulgation of the fall , 12.9375
ill omen enthroning the bonds of abhorrence , 14.4375
massacre back from beyond , 10.9375
obituary inked in blood , 5.4375
revel in flesh death kult legions , 15.4375
sanctuary the year the sun died , 15.9375
sinister - the post apocalyptic servant , 3.75
taake stridens hus , 9.75
the haunted exit wounds , 13.75
triptykon melana chasmata , 8.4375
vader tibi et igni , 15.0

I'm not entirely proud of this weighting system but LOAF seemed cool with it!

Looks overcomplicated. Why all the decimals? Each one could be weighted the exact opposite of its rank, meaning #1 could be 15 points and #15 could be one point. From there it's just a game of how many points each release gets.

Because programming the subroutine is ANNOYING haha! (it'd be like, if x=1 return 15 for every number, and really... it's not so hard to do at all and yeah, I offered to do it!)
I drummed that equation up surprisingly quick and it was a nice one-liner. It can extend to much larger numbers, which is nice - as opposed to a direct mapping which I have to hard code.
To be honest, I'd like to develop the code a bit more so I could apply different weighting systems sort of at my choosing. Next year!

I'd just make an Excel spreadsheet for it, but I'm lazy and therefore efficient. :)

Just don't take my rambling as some sort of criticism, I love you both for doing this at all. :m:

I love that band so much, but I can't say that the new one grabbed me as much as I expected. Maybe it was just that - high expectations - and that it will grow on me with time, but right now I have to say that I felt a little bit disappointed by it. I wish that they hadn't put re-recordings of two old songs, feels useless to me and it drags the album a abit, but it's a minor complaint I guess. It still made my top 15 though :)

1. Ares Kingdom - The Unburiable Dead #13
2. Megiddo - The Holocaust Messiah #36
3. Eurynomos - Eye of the Pantheon #70
4. Macabre Omen - Gods of War - At War #10
5. Deathhammer - Evil Power #28
6. Mgla - Exercises in Futility #4
7. Crom Dubh - Heimweh #61
8. Possession - 1585-1646 #92
9. Cruciamentum - Charnel Passages #14
10. Manilla Road - The Blessed Curse NOPE!
11. Bonehunter - Evil Triumphs Again #73
12. Devouring Star - Through Lung and Heart NOPE!
13. Sadistic Ritual - Edge of the Knife NOPE!
14. Malthusian - Below the Hengiform NOPE!
15. Satan - Atom by Atom #22

Lot of NOPE! in my bottom six this year, I figured the thrash heads here would have gone nuts for Sadistic Ritual. I am also surprised Manilla Road did not make the list as I find it much better then most of their recent output which have made lists from other years, probably most of you did not dig the acoustic half which I fucking loved

Good year!

:beer:

I'm really surprised at how much of my list finished pretty high in the overall rankings! Pleasantly surprised to see Amorphis getting such recognition, too. I don't remember that album getting talked about much this year, but it's fucking great.

I'm not concerned whether my ratings were high on the list. All that means is that other people heard and listened to and liked said album. It doesn't mean they're necessarily "better" than mine. Just more popular. :)

I was waiting to hear about that Drunemeton being released but I guess I missed that too. There was another Russian band I think you mentioned that may have had Blazebirth connections or something that was supposed to come out with something... did they?
