Is Life... available on vinyl too? Would love that. I ordered the cd ages ago but am still waiting. This is my first encounter with HM, consider me ignorant. Thanks again for the recommendations.

Not yet, I'm still waiting on that. Hydra Head are always sloooooooooow. They are like Southern Lord and milk cd sales for all they can then bring out 10 different colour vinyls .

The Winner of ilxor.com's Metal Album Of The Year 2008 is...

1


Torche - Meanderthal (Hydrahead (CD)/Robotic Empire(LP/Pic Disk) 457 Points (2 Number One Votes)

This should be no real surprise. From sublime power pop to space rock to stoner metal to a freaking Ian Gillan-era Black Sabbath tribute, Torche threw everything but the proverbial kitchen sink into Meanderthal (although I wouldn't bet against one of those being in there somewhere), and the miracle is that it works beautifully. Even though there's something to appeal to everyone, the album's wide reach never dilutes the band's consistent vision. Superb stuff, and it's only their second record! --- J3ff T

From the ashes of Sludge legends Floor came Torche. Steve Brooks called it "Stoner Pop" the 1st album was a masterpiece and this time they made it more wide ranging,heavier in places, without losing the "stoner pop". This band deserves to be huge.
I recommend buying the vinyl version of this as the packaging is amazing. On a par with Earth's vinyl "bible"? Sure! --- pfunkboy

Sorry, I don't know why I did that. It seemed appropriate.

Testament probably would have been high in this poll if it had been nominated.

Oh man I have the colour haze vinyl and the packaging on that is amazing too. It's their best album in eons but it still didn't make my final list (i had a list of 30 that i had to cut and that was one)
But if you like Kyuss style stoner/psych made by krazy germans then check it out.

Pfunkboy Formerly Known As... (Herman G. Neuname), Saturday, 24 January 2009 00:23 (5 years ago) Permalink

yeah jeff. I was surprised at their omission. Guns N Roses probably would've picked up votes too if it had been nominated, just due to the fact some struggled to make 25 and most people did hear it.
Dragonforce I expected to do a lot better. I can't even remember where that placed. I only have the 100-1 list that Glenn gave me here just now that I will post shortly. Glenn will be along later with the tally for all 191 albums that received a vote plus his other stuff he has planned.

btw, two albums that finished here that i really wanted to like, but didn't: cynic and moonspell. people kept telling me what a great prog-rock album the cynic one is (i think Decibel called it the best prog album in years), but i just don't hear it. (that new album by diagonal sounds like WAY better prog to me; cynic was okay, but mostly bored me, as much as i kept trying to convince myself otherwise.) as for moonspell, i like moonspell, have for a really long time. or at least i used to -- sin/pecado just barely missed my pazz & jop ballot in 1997, and i'm a fan of irreligious and wolfheart, too. but with their last few albums i've been increasingly losing the plot, and the new one, to my ears, seems like a drastic leap into averageness. my loss, i guess.

xhuxk, Saturday, 24 January 2009 00:38 (5 years ago) Permalink

torche doesn't remind me of foo fighters. but they do sometimes remind me of big country. which is, imo, a VERY GOOD THING. anyway, i didn't vote in this poll for the same reason as roxy, but i'm glad to see that my token metal album of the year is also the ilx metal album of the year...

(also, thanks for doing this -- gives me lots of stuff to check out.)

paper plans (tipsy mothra), Saturday, 24 January 2009 00:38 (5 years ago) Permalink

i know, i know, i didn't vote in the ilx metal poll. sorry. maybe next year! i've been busy. and i forgot to vote in the pazz & jop! oops. anyway, for the record, here are my top 15 albums of the year:

Drautran - Throne of the Depths

Otesanek/Loss/Orthodox/Mournful Congregation - Four Burials

Execration - Syndicate of Lethargy

Septic Flesh - Communion

Brown Jenkins - Angel Eyes

Dornenreich - In Luft Geritzt

Blood of the Black Owl - A Feral Spirit

Cold Northern Vengeance - Domination and Servitude

Caina - Temporary Antennae

Impiety - Dominator

Mourning Beloveth - A Disease For The Ages

Velnias - Sovereign Nocturnal

Animus Mortis - Atrabilis (Residues From Verb & Flesh)

Ars Diavoli - Nihilo Esse

Winterfylleth - The Ghost of Heritage

Well the whole point of the poll was to provide an end list of albums for everyone to check out. I am glad people are doing or planning to do exactly that.

i still haven't heard the torche album. i'd like to hear it. i liked the harvey milk album a bunch, but not as much as special wishes. i worked a day at the record store pricing vinyl in exchange for the fancy version of the earth album on vinyl. and i hadn't even heard it! good thing i ended up liking it so much. the made out of babies album was probably my fave indie rock album of the year. very cool.

as far as torche go, i'm a way bigger fan of the band their drummer is in, mehkago n.t., but i still want to hear the new torche. and i still need a copy of the mehkago n.t. split single with religious as fuck too. too bad i'm so poor.

roxymuzak, Saturday, 24 January 2009 00:53 (5 years ago) Permalink

I do hear a little Foos in the Torche, but mostly I find it's Jawbox and Helmet that keep popping up on Meanderthal.

people kept telling me what a great prog-rock album the cynic one is (i think Decibel called it the best prog album in years)

Ha, that was me. And I stand by that statement, too.

A. Begrand, Saturday, 24 January 2009 00:55 (5 years ago) Permalink

i'm with chuck on the cynic album. sounded old and moldy to me. like those dudes hadn't listened to any new techdeath in 15 years or more. i'd rather listen to just about any willowtip spazznoodle band than their new one.

scott seward, Saturday, 24 January 2009 00:56 (5 years ago) Permalink

I need to start a band called Willowtip Spazznoodle. Awesome.

EZ Snappin, Saturday, 24 January 2009 00:59 (5 years ago) Permalink

brain drill album poops all over the cynic.

scott seward, Saturday, 24 January 2009 00:59 (5 years ago) Permalink

Two completely different albums, though. The Cynic is barely metal as it is.

A. Begrand, Saturday, 24 January 2009 01:02 (5 years ago) Permalink

I find it's Jawbox and Helmet that keep popping up

Ha ha, no wonder I don't like it. (I wish I heard more Big Country in Torche. I'm all for bagpipes in metal. Or guitars that sound like bagpipes. That sound like Irish Spring commercials.)

Hurray for some Scottness on this thread at last.

Pfunkboy Formerly Known As... (Herman G. Neuname), Saturday, 24 January 2009 01:05 (5 years ago) Permalink

Good work kerr & co.

I don't listen to a lot of metal and didn't vote but I've spotted a few things in the list that have piqued my curiosity and I'll definitely check out some the bands in the coming weeks. Some great cover art (as well as a load that could have been on any Metal shelf in any record shop in the last 25 years).

I should pay more attention to the rolling thread(s).

onimo, Saturday, 24 January 2009 01:06 (5 years ago) Permalink

big thanks for doing all this, pfunk, musically, glenn, etc. it's been a fun ride.

there are a few albums I need to check out here - gojira, leviathan, caina, cynic, ascend and others. I've been very sceptical about torche though. the selected tracks I've heard have indeed sounded like foo fighters in southern lord jeans (thought I was alone in that assertion...). however, I probably should indeed check out the album, if only to stop people badgering me about it.

really surprised the boris album placed so highly...some great moments, but overall a relatively weak and patchy effort - especially the godawful first track.

however, great (not to mention unexpected) to see my personal fave of last year, made out of babies, in the top 10. my other top-rankers here: harvey milk (though it's not quite as great as special wishes); earth; meshuggah; melvins; krallice; asva; coffins; marnie stern. false metal all the way.

notable by absence: desalvo

m the g, Saturday, 24 January 2009 01:13 (5 years ago) Permalink

Ha, "Foo Fighters in Southern Lord jeans" totally sounds like it could be rock album of the year to me. I'm downloading.

Sundar, Saturday, 24 January 2009 01:15 (5 years ago) Permalink

My thoughts on the poll.

When I 1st started taking ballots on this I expected the front runners to be
Torche
Enslaved
Opeth
Amon Amarth
Gojira

based on what I had read on the rolling metal 2008 thread last year.

With the rest of the top 10 to maybe have crossover acts who would pick up votes off everyone like
Boris
Earth
Harvey Milk.

I knew of course there would be some dark horses and I just hadn't heard those albums. Made Out Of Babies I knew people had raved about so I expected it to do quite well- top 20 maybe.

When the votes came in Torche did very well as did Enslaved. It must have been neck and neck although I wasnt counting votes.
The others were doing steadily enough apart from Opeth which was doing surprisingly badly.

But then in the 2nd week Opeth votes came flooding in and Enslaved just dropped off the radar. Amon Amarth just didn't get going really and it soon became apparent that 5ive and Esoteric were doing very well.

It still came as a shock however that albums 2-5 were that order. I thought Enslaved had maybe done enough early on but no, the votes had dried up totally.

There was some nice surprises in that two albums I really repped for on ILX last year did so well. 5ive , Esoteric and Caina. I did expect Esoteric to maybe go top 20 and it scored well early on so I fancied it might go close to the top 10. 5ive really exceeded my expectations in this poll, but I am so glad to see it do so well. Even if it's not exactly metal. The same with the Grails album.

So please check out the albums you don't know. If you have heard them, play it again, sometimes albums you weren't into can just click. Even months later.
Thanks to all who voted/nominated ,I think it's been a successful poll. Is different enough to what we have seen in magazine polls and is fairly representative of the Rolling Metal Threads and it's lurkers. And is also a very good companion and little brother to the main ILX poll. Most of these albums wont be on that, but now have a chance to be heard and not just forgotten about.

Now for Glenn to pop along with his complete stats rundown.
But until then, lets further discuss the results!

If anyone wants to buy the Torche vinyl then go to the Robotic Empire Webstore and pick it up. There's several different colours available (as you will see if you scroll down) PLUS you can also order the repress of their self-titled first lp And their In Return EP
