The year of Metal has had a vast variety of solid releases and just flat out kick ass music, if 2012 is as strong as this past year was in Metal, we are in for a real treat. Rawks!!! Here are the top 25 metal albums of 2011 and yes I know we left some out but is hard to top so many great releases in just 25 spots you know!!!
Well, I have to say that 2011 was easily one of the best years for metal music in general in a long time. Awesome prog from bands like DREAM THEATER, VOYAGER and WHILE HEAVEN WEPT, great thrash from stalwarts like MACHINE HEAD, ANTHRAX and MEGADETH,
