Due to the large number of killer Roadrunner albums I worked on this year, I have decided not to list any of them in my Top Ten for obvious reasons. So I am excluding awesome releases from Times Of Grace, Trivium, Dream Theater, Machine Head, Opeth, DevilDriver, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Korn and others. Honorable mentions: World Under Blood, Motorhead, Kvelertak (reissue), Charred Walls Of The Damned, Chickenfoot, Cynic EP, Believer, Chimaira And an early call-out to what will surely be on my Top 10 list of 2012: Nekromantheon - Rise, Vulcan Spectre (due 1/13/12)

    It’s good that some people mention new bands like Evile and Warbringer.

    Evile and Warbringer……not new by any stretch of the word
