Probably a bunch more I'm forgetting in each catergory as well!
This year is flooring me, every single time I get a new album I seem to be blown away by it. There's something in the water I'm sure of it.
As for my picks of the year so far...
Evergrey - Glorious Collision (takes a LONG time to grow on you, but it does)
Fleshgod Apocalypse - The Agony (Sublime, I am in love with this album)
Omnium Gatherum - New World Shadows (Once it sinks in, it wont leave)
Amaranthe - S/T (Listened the hell out of this when it was released)
Decapitated - Carnival Is Forever (Way better than I expected, not perfect but pretty awesome)
Devin Townsend Project - Deconstruction (a wall of sound crossed with prog, just how I like it)
Entro-P - Deeper The Hole (Unsigned/lesser known band, really well done technical metal)
Mercenary - Metamorphosis (I kinda prefer them with the new vocals)
Obscura - Omnivium (Tech death orgasm)
Symphony X - Iconoclast (I'm liking this new direction of theirs)
Torchbearer - Death Meditations (Black/Death metal that just sounds great)
I'm sure more will come out and bum me senseless, but thats whats doing it for me at the moment.
