I own eight of the albums that made the list.

It's a shame Helstar - Vampiro and Defeated Sanity - Disposal of the Dead/Dharmata didn't make the list. :(

I would like to say a few things

1) Loaf-Thank you for putting this together each year. I look forward to this every year and I want you to know that I really appreciate it.

2) I love when the results are posted and the tradition of posters bumping their lists up against it. Totally cool!

3) Loaf I think you can't go out like this, Metallica? I think you need to come do this for at least one more year. I would like to extend the services of deathstalkers vent, free for a month. Think about it over the weekend, consult the family and get back to us.

FUCKING LOL! THE BUTTHURT IS OFF THE CHARTS. :lol:

I'll be honest,I like the Metallica,but at first I had it at the bottom of my personal top 20 list.but once I saw all the holier than thou tr00bies say shit like "any moron who has Metallica on their list instead of bands like *insert bands who most likely scrapped the bottom of the barrel, or didnt make the list at all.* clearly know nothing about Metal in 2016." Then I bumped it up to #15 solely so that I would
Contribute at least 1 point towards its final placement.Knowing tons of people would whine about it.

I was expecting it to end up around number 17 or so,so this quite the pleasant surprise. The reactions have not disappointed one bit. :)

On a side note,can't remember if the website/mag and the Board ever had the same #1

So you put a band on your list because you were upset about how people trashed it? Who's really butthurt here? :)

who said anything about being upset? I just think the elitist attitude you and a few others keep parading around here is completely pointless and childish.

Elitist because I don't like a Metallica album? Your benchmark for elitism is very low. :lol:

Post Re: Braveboard Top 100 Albums of 2016
Metallica as #1? Ehh... whatever. For what it's worth, I actually liked it the first few spins, but on repeated plays I started skipping songs, until it got to the point that I was skipping ALL of the second disc except the last song. Had Metallica trimmed off all of this fat they would have released a solid album that would have likely ranked in my top 10. It had some great songs, but some really fucking crap songs too, and that does not a number 1 album make.

Here's how my list fared:

1. Vektor - Terminal Redux 4
2. Moonsorrow - Jumalten Aika 2
3. Mistur - In Memoriam 51
4. SkeletonWitch - The Apothic Gloom EP DNP
5. Allegaeon - Proponent For Sentience 59
6. Thornbridge - What Will Prevail DNP
7. Goatess - II (Purgatory Under New Management) 95
8. Desaster - The Oath of An Iron Ritual 62
9. Thrawsunblat - Metachtonia 81
10. Be'lakor - Vessels 33
11. Avantasia - Ghostlights DNP
12. Lords of Black - II DNP
13. Hellbringer - Awakened From The Abyss 79
14. Dark Tranquillity - Atoma 20
15. Amon Amarth - Jomsviking 18

11/15, probably the most I've ever had in common with the board's list.

Surprised by:
- My top 2 in the top 4 board (cool!)
- Goatess making the list (yeah!)
- Thrawsunblat ranks (woo!)
- D666 outranked Desaster? (what?)
- Volbeat made the list (gross)
- Metallica topping the list (I expected top 10-20)

Not surprised by:
- No love for good power metal on this board
- the SkeletonWitch going completely unnoticed

LOAF: thank you once again for doing this, and if it is indeed your final year, thank you for returning year in/year out over the past 15-ish years and creating the Board's most cherished tradition.
8)

EDIT:
Also added ranks for my next 15 albums although they were not sorted I just listed them alphabetically:
Anthrax - For All Kings 9
Astralion - Outlaw DNP
Cauldron - In Ruin DNP
Cobalt - Slow Forever 24
Death Angel - The Evil Divide 13
Equilibrium - Armageddon DNP
Eternity's End - The Fire Within DNP
Helstar - Vampiro DNP
Insomnium - Winter's Gate 29
Lucifer's Hammer - Beyond the Omens DNP
Megadeth - Dystopia 3
Metal Church - XI 54
Opeth - Sorceress 26
Underworld - Barbara Barbara (We Face A Shining Future) DNP
Vader - The Empire 7

My theory, which is just a total SWAG, is that we get a lot of people posting in the year end lists that don't spend a lot of time exploring new music and end up with like 20-30 albums they bought during the year. Because Bravewords has always been a more trad Metal type of mag, I feel that it has attracted a lot of folks into the more "publicly available" (for lack of a better term) music and bands. Therefore, you get a bunch of people that enjoy the more mainstream bands and don't actively seek new music, like folks like RxDx and Blasphy and others do. That results in lists populated with stuff that they might relegate to the bottom of the heap if they sought out more music during the year.

If you think Megadave in #3 is worse than both Metallica and Anthrax's spots you're fucked in the head

:lol:

The Metallica and Anthrax albums don't bother me...they'e just sorta 'there'. Total 'whatever' stuff. The Megadeth album was a chore for me to get through and I am sincerely surprised it made the top 3.

I wanted to put Gadget on my list but I didn't get the album in time in the mail and wasn't able to really give it a proper listen. Probably my biggest list regret of this go-round.

My biggest surprise was that Trap Them didn't place at all. Crown Feral is just a monstrous record. A lot of people missed out by the looks of it.
