Best Metal Albums of 2011 so far

A few weeks ago death metal giants Origin released Entity. It kept to their original formula and keeps the energy going.
Born of Osiris' newest and in my opinion greatest release yet. It infuses their melodic/progressive deathcore elements with techno and ambience. It is not a typical deathcore album and is truly a masterpiece.
California deathcore band that is truly one of my favorites. They went with a more hardcore feel for this album and it proved to be great.
Amon Amarth has won the heart of many metalheads and this album only creates a long lasting relationship with their fans. This album along with Twilight of the Thundergod will be entertaining metalheads for years to come.

The Black Dahlia Murder did it again with this amazing album! They have made a impression in the metal scene that is swiftly solidifying their spot as one of the best bands in the genre.

  14. I love 'Ritual', in fact I made a post about it myself the other day! Amon Amarth is always good, and Winds of Plague has been heavy in recent playlists for me too.

    You should definitely check out 'Edge of the Earth' by Sylosis. So far, it's my #1 metal album of the year. It's a great mix of thrash elements with melodic death metal. "Empyreal" is their best example off that album.
