Blotted Science was good? That's news to me

This isn't going to end well.

I would go with Fire Chariot of Destruction for Graveland.  Other prospective releases:

Blaspherian - AttWoD
Azhia - Key of Throne
Black Funeral - Az-I-Dahak
Disma - Vault of Membros
Aosoth - Ashes of Angels
Sorcier des Glaces - Moonrise in Total Darkness
Summoning - Oath Bound

slash away!

There's already a 'best albums of the decade' list. This is derivative and pointless / who cares.

I don't see the problem with constantly revising and reconsidering things.  Plus there's new releases every week.  We shouldn't be afraid to admit when we got something wrong or we overlooked something - I know I do it all the time.

Absu - Tara

Commercialized, disputably overrated, way too much limelight and I hate hearing about them ALL of the time because there are better bands...

but the Impaled-Ghoul-Asunder-Wolves "lets play every type of underground metal" incest party even as corny staples pretty much laid a damn big dent in the historical slab of metal in which they can call their own doing.

Cultist: and Mortician before them, and Necrophagia, helping with that archetype. Don't forget Skinless for the "dumbing it down" list, nor the Cannibal Corpse series of bands.

More thuggethtions:

* Cosmic Atrophy http://www.myspace.com/atrophyhouston - Demilich meets Timeghoul
* Blaspherian http://www.myspace.com/blaspherian - old Incantation and Deicide
* War Master http://www.myspace.com/449385771 - Bolt Thrower and old Incantation
* Ayasoltec http://www.myspace.com/ayasoltec - Aztec tribal technical death metal
* Morbus 666 http://www.myspace.com/morbus666usa - Sodom and Gorgoroth, with added Satan
* Imprecation http://www.myspace.com/imprecationusa - like Morbid Angel and old Incantation
* Decrepitaph http://www.myspace.com/decrepitaph - like Carnage and old Malevolent Creation
* Winterwolf http://www.myspace.com/winterwolfofficial - Carnage and old Demigod

The Blaspherian is a must.  I listened to it yesterday and what struck me is the PATIENCE!  The patience of the performers playing it and the melody, itself, is almost disturbing.  People shouldn't feel THAT comfortable playing that kind of music!

I spent the weekend listening to some of the albums mentioned in this thread and of the albums that I personally mentioned, I have it whittled down to the Blaspherian, Avzhia, Summoning, and Disma releases.

There's already a 'best albums of the decade' list. This is derivative and pointless / who cares.

I found these:

* What are the new classics?
* Best metal 1999-2009
* Post-2000 albums

The problem is that:

(a) No one's posted in these threads for awhile
(b) No consensus was reached

Looking at this from a practical perspective, we should reach a consensus and then force these albums on the world: Note: consensus does not mean "everyone agrees." It means the wise elders reach an accord and filter out anything below a B+.

So here's my stab:

* Immolation - Unholy Cult
* Beherit - Engram
* Asphyx - Death... The Brutal Way,On the Wings of Inferno
* Divine Eve - Vengeful and Obstinate
* Demoncy - Empire of the Fallen Angel
* Antaeus - Cut Your Flesh and Worship Satan
* Birth A.D. - Stillbirth of a Nation
* Ceremonium - No Longer Silent
* Averse Sefira - Advent Parallax
* Cianide - Divide And Conquer
* Blotted Science - The Machinations Of Dementia
* Candlemass - King Of The Grey Islands
* Fleshcrawl - As Blood Rains from the Sky... We Walk the Path of Endless Fire
* Graveland - Dawn of Iron Blades
* Profanatica - Profanatitas de Domonatia
* Blaspherian - Allegiance to the Will of Damnation
* Avzhia - Key of Throne
* Black Funeral - Az-I-Dahak
* Disma - Vault of Membros
* Sorcier des Glaces - Moonrise in Total Darkness
* Summoning - Oath Bound
* Deeds of Flesh - Path of the Weakening
* Incantation - Diabolical Conqeust
* Ildjarn - Nidhogg
* Evil - Hate Spirit
* Skepticism - Alloy

I think it's interesting to see how much of the stuff people posted ended up being their latest find, rather than particularly good.

Heh, a delicate proposition!

Good point.

Hmmmm, let's see what I might consider adding to your list.. I'll try to keep it around death and black metal (or all we talking all metal genres?):

(in alphabetical order)
Borknagar - Empiricism
Emperor - Prometheus - The Discipline of Fire & Demise
Sigh - Imaginary Sonicscape
Transcending Bizarre? - The Serpent's Manifolds

Re: Metal 2000-2010

Yikes- The last Emperor album?

I would be hard pressed to add that to the list Conservationist has begun.

Conservationist: I would proabably disagree with a few of the album selections ie. Advent Parallax over Tetragramatical Astygmata. The latter seems tighter/ focused.

Gorguts- From Wisdom to Hate

I'll agree here on the tightness part, but not the focus.

Advent Parallax was tighter than a virgin's vagina, and a swell followup to the Tetragrammatical Astygmata, but I don't think it trumps it in focus. Their junior effort (not counting the demo) was such a vast improvement from the already great Battle's Clarion. There's not a single song on that record that doesn't form a story in the way they compose those pieces.

Advent Parallax isn't really a far cry from that and the production is much better than anything that came before it, but Tetragrammatical Astygmata is definitely the superior in my mind. One of the great Metal releases that came from 2000-2010.

I love that Ceremonium CD, but I believe it was from 1998. So is that Incantation album.

My list:
Skepticism - Alloy, Farmakon
Immolation - Close to a World Below
The Chasm - Farseeing The Paranormal Abysm, Spell of Retribution
Graveland - Cold Winter Blades, Memory and Destiny
Beherit - Engram
Asphyx - Death The Brutal Way
Summoning - Oath Bound, Mortal Heroes
Absu - Tara
Root - Black Seal
Pagan Altar - The Lords of Hypocrisy, Mythical and Magical
Saturnus - Martyre

Ildjarn-Nidhogg is actually growing on me...

Acerbus - Live at KVRX
Insect Warfare - At War With Grindcore, World Extermination
