Edit: I had The Ocean on my hand written tally, I just missed it off the actual list before. They are now reinstated at joint 9th place. I do hope the rest of it is right, I kinda guessed something was up at the time, hence the mini disclaimer, but I was too tired to recheck it, as it was nearly 3 in the morning when I finished!

Please check your favourites against my calculations, I might have messed up.

1) Enslaved - Utgard 24pts
2) Demons & Wizards - III 20pts
2) Dark Tranquillity - Moment 20pts
3) Paradise Lost - Obsidian 16pts
3) Unleash the Archers - Abyss 16pts
3) Draconian - Under A Godless Veil 16pts
4) Alestorm - Curse Of The Crystal Coconut 15pts
5) Hellripper - Affair of the Poisons 13pts
5) Sólstafir - Endless Twilight of Codependent Love 13pts
6) Dark Fortress - Spectres from the Old World 9pts
6) Svalbard - When I Die, Will I Get Better?
7) Katatonia - City Burials 8pts
8) Countless Skies - Glow 7pts
9) Ensiferum - Thalassic 6pts
9) The Ocean - Phanerozoic II: Mesozoic / Cenozoic 6pts
10) Brothers of Metal - Emblas Saga 5pts
10) Finntroll - Vredesvävd 5pts
10) Testament - Titans of Creation 5pts
10) Necrophobic - Dawn of the Damned 5pts
11) Bütcher - 666 Goats Carry My Chariot 4pts
12) Warbringer - Weapons of Tomorrow 2pts
13) Winterfylleth -The Reckoning Dawn 1pts

Enslaved winning show's you've all got taste. I think. Because that snoozefest of a Demons and Wizards album in second place suggests you don't :lol:

I second this....simply don't get the D&W love. Still they won't be in with a chance of ever getting so high again :lol:

It was actually the only D&W album I've liked, the previous 2 were snoozefests imo. The Solstafir album is the real snoozefest there, like all their other albums it's lullaby music to send babies to sleep.

My pics of Enslaved, Unleashed The Archers, Alestorm and Dark Fortress all got in there, so it's a good enough list for me. The Dark Tranquility and Paradise Lost albums were as meh and forgettable as all the recent stuff they've both done.

I think the most interesting record from the shortlist won. Though I really enjoyed the new PL myself and I thought D&W helped to make America great again.

19   Dark Tranquillity - Moment
17   Alestorm - Curse Of The Crystal Coconut
16   Unleash the Archers - Abyss
16   Paradise Lost - Obsidian
16   Draconian - Under A Godless Veil
13   Sólstafir - Endless Twilight of Codependent Love
10   Hellripper - Affair of the Poisons

I think it’s sorted, but I can’t be bothered doing it again, so let’s hope it’s ok.

I haven't heard the Enslaved album, although if its winning I should, but I kind of agree with Demons and Wizards. I loved the bands first two albums, but III (even the name is boring) wasn't particularly good. I gave it some points, because it had some decent moments, but most of it was just a bit bland.

Yeah, you've gone full blown crazy here. Solstafir are one of the most interesting and exciting bands of the 21st century for me. Adore the new album.
