!!! Under New Management !!! It's The ILM NON-ELITIST METAL ALBUMS POLL 2012 NOMINATIONS THREAD

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

I WEB-mailed AG to see if he was still running the metal poll, and if not, could I take a crack at it. He agreed to hand over the reins, stating he wasn't interested on running it this year. Thanks to AG and the others for the previous polls and I am delighted to take an ILM institution over.
So here goes:

This will be an all-metal poll, anything metal is welcome. I will try to be less elitist and more inclusive than previous AG metal polls, so bring all your metal to the table. Swans are IN as will Alt-Metal be, if nominated of course.
I'm going to put a cap of 20 nominations per poster. Quality not quantity is the name of the game.
In the same spirit as the big poll, we are going to have a much shorter rollout. This poll is about the best of this year's metal, it is not some AG-style Scottish socialist experiment where every record gets a participation trophy! :-)
Suspense is important for rollouts IMO. Full results will be posted after the #1 is announced.
If need be the rules will be relaxed on the last day to allow further nominations of any important missed out albums.

That said, nominate away! Following format please (in bold):
Artist- Album

example:

The Decibel EOY list will be presupposed in the nominations but if nominated would look like this-


Gojira- L'Enfant Sauvage
Meshuggah- Koloss
Agalloch- Faustian Echoes EP
The Shrine- Primitive Blast
Incantation- Vanquish In Vengeance
Samothrace-Reverence To Stone
Devin Townsend Project- Epicloud

Farsot- Insects
Gaza- No Absolute For Human Suffering
Inverloch- Dark/Subside
SWANS- The Seer
Horrendous- The Chills
Killing Joke- MMXII
Early Graves- Red Horse
Liberteer- Better To Die On Your Feet Than Live On Your Knees
High On Fire- De Vermis Mysteriis
Napalm Death- Utiltarian
Torche- Harmonicraft
Grave- Endless Procession Of Souls
Satan's Wrath- Galloping Blasphemy
Testament- Dark Roots Of Earth
Cattle Decapitation- Monolith Of Inhumanity
Blut As Nord- 777: Cosmosophy
Municipal Waste- The Fatal Feast
Pig Destroyer- Book Burner

Royal Thunder- CVI
Enslaved- Riitiir
Neurosis-Honor Found In Decay
Pallbearer-Sorrow and Extinction
Witchcraft- Legend

Other publications lists can be added if published in time. Just list them in this thread.

Nominations will close at 7pm EST on Friday, December 21st 2012 (that's midnight for the Britishes and 4pm for our friends on the left coast of the US). So we can allow several weeks for the voting and discovery process. This polls results must roll out before the big poll. Voting must finish by January 11th and the rollout must finish before January 19th.
Here is the Google Spreadsheet for nominations. I will try to update it daily, time allowing.

Please always check this list before nominating.

Thanks for doing this. I don't think, however, that limiting ballots to 20 somehow increases quality. It'll simply exclude more interesting choices from making the top 100, making the results more predictable. I'd like to think part of the point of our ILM polls is to show that there are definitely more than 20 quality metal albums every year. Just my HO, I am grateful that someone could step up and do this.

― Fastnbulbous,

That is the way the big proper EOY poll works so I am following that successful template and also there will not be anywhere near a top 100 rollout. Quality not Quantity is my motto. I was thinking of having ballots with a max of 10 with no minimum which P&J uses. But I may change that to 15 or even 20 when time comes to vote.

ILM METAL POLL 2012 (New Management), Sunday, 16 December 2012 18:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

DON'T START BITCHING ABOUT HOW THIS IS BEING DONE. All the complaints and crying is why others threw in the towel in the fist place. If you wanted done a certain way, you should've done it yourself. Let em do it how they want and be grateful its even being done at all..

SeanWayne, Sunday, 16 December 2012 18:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

Listen, there's a difference between bitching and calmly stating your opinion as FNB has done. As long as people are considerate, I don't see why they shouldn't be able to voice their thoughts?

Bound by Habitrails (J3ff T.), Sunday, 16 December 2012 20:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

Its everyones' opinions that made people fold on it in the first place.

SeanWayne, Sunday, 16 December 2012 20:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

But you're right, FNB did graciously state his opinion, but I can see it turning for the worse as others pile on..

SeanWayne, Sunday, 16 December 2012 20:49 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm with SeanWayne - no complaints about rules, formats, etc. should be tolerated from anyone. They're all stated up top and they fucking stand. If you don't like them, don't participate - end of story.

誤訳侮辱, Sunday, 16 December 2012 21:27 (2 years ago) Permalink

FNB wasn't rude. Everyone can have their say; but they don't have the final say. AG's rules caused too many arguments. I feel his poll was too large and and too many rules and tbqh elitist and obsessed with cool and tried too hard to pimp underground metal which most people were not interested at the expense of 'popular metal'. Hence all the arguments. Afaiac its all metal and should be free to be nominated but smaller nominations also means only the best will be nominated not 3000 albums 1 person got sent by pr men.
The poll from now on is to simply highlight the crème de la crème of 2012 Metal releases. There are not 100 releases that match that. There is not 50 either. One could argue there's barely a handful of releases a year that are truly great. 20 votes is more than enough and I am seriously considering 10 votes like P&J as if its good enough for them (It shall not be more than 20). Voting should not be something you labor over trying to fulfill minimum quotas. More will vote if we have a smaller nominations pool and smaller ballot and the countdown will be much more exciting with a far smaller rollout. After all the full results will still be posted at the en for those who are inclined to check out lower reaches. There is a good reason albums don't get lots of votes so why waste time on them?
Many argued for this and its time to show how much better it will be.
Would be mucho healthier if albums were discussed than rules as the rules wont be changed.

Are we doing reissues? Because I think that Coven record is one, as great as it is.

It sort of is, if super limited vinyl private pressings in 1987 count as initial issues. (Pagan Altar, which Mordy nominated above, is at least sort of one too, right? Recorded 1978.) Seems like a grey area to me, but disqualify if necessary.

Everyone happy with just doing a maximum of 10 votes like with Pazz & Jop? Makes it far easier to knock up a list and everyone will only vote the very best rather than 50 albums they heard once.

I'd much rather list more -- like somebody else said above, more votes makes these polls more interesting, not less, and I've heard my favorite 30 albums this year way more than once -- but then again I'm not the one doing the tabulating. So I can live it.

This is highly unorthodox but Algerian Goalie msged me and while he is apparently on an ILM posting quarantine he wants to nominate some albums. If nomination-by-proxy is allowed, his list is as follows:

Drudkh - Eternal Turn of the Wheel
Behold... the Arctopus - Horrorscension
Colour Haze - She Said
My Sleeping Karma - Soma
Dawnbringer - Into The Lair Of The Sun God
Cauldron - Tomorrow's Lost
Furze - Psych Minus Space Control

I suppose if you think this is me trying to sneak in more nominations of my own (although AFAIK I have 5 left), some third party can back me up... AG if you're lurking plz let someone else know so they can confirm.

Thank you I will add most of it that's not already nominated but which of these aren't metal/heavy rock/alt-metal and shouldn't be in the nominations list? Amanda Palmer obviously. How Scott Walker? unlikely to have guitar riffs I'd imagine. Mono and Gybe are as guitar heavy as anything on Kerrang list so that's fine especially as no-one has to vote for them if they feel it shouldn't count.

ILM METAL POLL 2012 (New Management), Thursday, 20 December 2012 00:31 (1 year ago) Permalink

Remember this is a non-elitist poll compared to previous polls. Lets be more open-minded and unafraid of less hip more mainstream albums.

ILM METAL POLL 2012 (New Management), Thursday, 20 December 2012 00:34 (1 year ago) Permalink

What about pop-punk? Green Day and other bands like them were on the Kerrang! list and made it into the nominations spreadsheet... where do we stand on that?

Frobisher the (Viceroy), Thursday, 20 December 2012 00:53 (1 year ago) Permalink

Liars, black bananas and hexvessel aren't metal. The new mono is basically a neoclassical CD, although I don't really care if you include it or not. It's not so much a matter of being elitist or mainstream, more a matter of having things on the list that just don't fit the genre.

Bound by Habitrails (J3ff T.), Thursday, 20 December 2012 00:56 (1 year ago) Permalink

And it isn't a matter of serious voters voting for those albums, and more that if there are things that trolls can vote for to screw up the poll, they will vote for them.

I got the Deiphago album through the post finally. Came as a rather splendid picture disc with brilliant artwork, an iron-on patch and a CD. Music sounds like someone yelling "SATAAAAAAAAAN" while throwing cutlery down the stairs.

Looking at previous polls now and they got between 80-90 ballots ,with the relaxation of rules this time I anticipate getting nearer 100. That would mean, along with shortening the roll-out from 125 ,trolls would be wasting their time plus trolls have never been a problem in any ILM 'email' Poll before. Any obvious troll ballots could be easily discounted as on the voting form they have to provide their ilx name.

I still think we should consider removing Green Day.

Shall we open up extra nominations now? Please don't add hundreds of albums from Rate Your Metal just for the sake of it and instead add albums that have not been mentioned that you would vote for or think are important albums that shouldn't be left out.

was gonna vote but i don't really trust my votes with this "New Management" lurker, i think they should hand the poll back to AG

✧ (am0n), Friday, 21 December 2012 17:38 (1 year ago) Permalink

AG doesn't want to run it. New Management has been gracious enough to take over. Thanks, New Management!

Mordy, Friday, 21 December 2012 17:50 (1 year ago) Permalink

rly think AG should reconsider. we don't know anything about this lurker, whole thing seems v shady

I always wondered what happened to The Management since Carnivàle was prematurely canceled.

I can promise that the results will be whatever ✧ (am0n) wants them to be.

Not really sure what to do now re voting thread since I'm not manually tabulating now. Voting thread will start hopefully tomorrow or sunday but y'all can start making your lists to have them ready. Here is the full nominations list. Will add lists from Revolver/Terrorizer once they come in unless there is objections.

Thank-you to everyone who nominated. You made things really easy.
