    I've only heard a couple songs from the new album, "speed of darkness" but it does it seem like the singer from flogging molly has lost his accent?

    Childish Gambino-Camp

    One of the freshest, most honest hip hop albums I've heard since Food and Liquor.

    There turned out to be a bit more than I had originally expected this year in terms of albums. But for what there was I was quite impressed. Top 10:

    1. Unto The Locust - Machine Head
    Hands down the single best metal release of the past two decades. Im at odds with it and Avenged Sevenfold's Nightmare for best record of the decade with the only possible albums to pass it would be future Machine Head and A7X releases.
    2. Thirteen - Megadeth
    Some hate it, some love it. But for what it is, its quite enjoyable. There are many stand out tracks like SUdden death, 13, Public Enemy, and Black Swan.
    3. LPU 11 - Linkin Park
    ome amazing B-sides here. Blue and Slip are amazing. The meteroa songs are something to enjoy. Really cant go wrong with this collection
    4. Iconoclast - Symphony X
    A really strong and powerful record. Hands down their best release IMO.
    5. The Path of Totality - Korn
    My hidden enjoyment of dubstep is brought to new life here. Granted I dont love dubstep, but when applied here it makes this album something else. Easily Korns best release since Follow The leader.
    6. Endgame - Rise Against
    ANother one of those love hate records. I found it a nice step backwards to their older sounds from Sufferer and Siren Songs. A lot of great tracks here.
    7. A Dramatic Turn Of Events - Dream Theater
    It may not be DT's best release, but the New Mike doesnt disappoint. I found this album oddly enjoyable.
    8. American Capitalist - Five Finger Death Punch
    While this album makes the list, I didnt find it as enjoyable overall as FFDP's previous two releases. That being said tracks like American Capitalist and the Tragic Truth are very promising and hopefully the band can expand upon these kinds of songs on their 4th release.
    9. Conjure And Command - Toxic Holocaust
    Modern Thrash down incredibly well. Cant go wrong here.
    10. The Beginning of Times - Amorphis
    Amorphis have a great unique sound with their fusion of Finnish melodic death metal, and classic Progressive metal and Heavy metal. While nothing groundbreakingly new on this release, it still stands tall and is an enjoyable listen to any fan.

    Honorable Mentions:

    Bad Meets Evil - Hell The Sequel
    Children of Bodom - Relentless, Reckless Forever
    Within Temptation - The Unforgiving
    Anthrax - Worship Music (And Im not much of an Anthrax fan, but this was surprisingly good)
    Skeletonwitch - Forever Abomination

    Disturbed - The LOst Children
    The reason this album didnt make the list for me, was because of the fact that all but 1 song on the album had already been released. So it really wasnt anything new. Its a solid collection of amazing B-sides. But alas it was an already released collection in one way or another. Leaving just one new song (As amazing as it is) to be desired, I felt it wouldnt be deserving of an album of the year title. Likewise...

    Avenged Sevenfold - Not Ready To Die
    Since this was only 1 song and not an album of any kind, it naturally wouldnt qualify for the list. That being said, this song is truly amazing, and if their next album follows a similar sound, it has a chance of being another A7X classic.
