It’s that unholy time of year again. There’s no shortage of metallic catharsis to be had in the age of covid, so let’s do this.
You know the drill. The format is Artist – Album. And, for the love of Lucifer, don’t forget to bold!
Here’s the spreadsheet (please use ctrl + f to check for duplicates):
I don’t have Spotify but Neechy has graciously started a collaborative playlist for everyone to use:
Lastly, please note that this year you may ‘only’ nominate up to 100 albums so I’d really appreciate it if you could include a little counter at the end of each nom post and update it as needed (e.g. ‘(26/100)’, ’(58/100)’, etc.), just like for the main ILM poll.

If that's the case (which I didn't know) then I think only Skepticism - Alloy needs to be removed.
Riot - Rock World (Rare & Unreleased 87-95) has mostly newly released material, it's just old stuff that was never released before.

People should give the Enslaved another chance. It left me cold the first couple of listens, but eventually hit me the right way. I know they're pretty much nothing like they used to be, but I don't see how someone who loves music could not at least appreciate the craft of it even if it didn't resonate emotionally. I don't even know why I gave a new Enslaved release more listens or why I'm suddenly OK with pop-oriented Enslaved, but I'm glad I did. I might even go back and check out the last ten years of releases I skipped.
Igorrr doesn't get much any love around here, but Spirituality & Distortion kicks ass. If tracks Nervous Waltz or Himalaya Massive Ritual don't do it for you, you can probably confidently say you're not a fan and move on, but if you like and haven't heard 2017's Savage Sinusoid (which I also nommed that year, and I think it received one vote in the poll) which is slightly more chaotic and unfocused but probably slightly better for it.
Darren Korb's "Hades" soundtrack is worth checking out. It's on Spotify and Bandcamp. My young daughter who is ambivalent to most hard rock/metal I play absolutely loves it. The game is outstanding as well.

How about Glenn & Unperson, would you like to nominate?

What is the preference for voting?
Would you prefer voting to open next weekend or wait until the big ilm eoy poll rollout is finished which will allow proper attention to metal poll without distraction of big poll?
― Oor Neechy, Sunday, 3 January 2021 19:10 (three weeks ago) link
Either option works for me, especially since I won't be voting in the main poll this year.
― pomenitul, Sunday, 3 January 2021 19:13 (three weeks ago) link
So yeah, tell us your preferences and we'll schedule accordingly.
― pomenitul, Sunday, 3 January 2021 19:14 (three weeks ago) link
We cant compete with enthusiasm for the big polls so I think we should try leaving voting until after main poll so it gets full attention. As most only vote in the last week I think a 2 week period for voting would suffice.
Those who wish to campaign for albums could still do so in a separate thread for it. Might even help get more metal and adjacent into big poll.
― Oor Neechy, Sunday, 3 January 2021 19:15 (three weeks ago) link
So the question really is, would you like a campaign thread now so people can 'study listen' to nominations or leave it for the 2 week voting thread which starts after the big album poll rollout?
― Oor Neechy, Sunday, 3 January 2021 19:20 (three weeks ago) link
I’d be interested in seeing a campaigning thread now to study! And voting after the main poll is customary, right? Always good to discover some new metal in January.
― tangenttangent, Sunday, 3 January 2021 20:16 (three weeks ago) link
It does give time for late releases in 2020 time to sink in and get past the initial listens to see if it still stands up.
Poll always ran in december but we changed it a few years back for the above reasons but voting usually was open before big poll voting opened but results were after big poll.
I think having voting period after big poll rollout allows 100% concentration on it. Lets see if it helps turn out.
― Oor Neechy, Sunday, 3 January 2021 20:22 (three weeks ago) link
I'll start a campaign thread tonight then, with a link to the spotify playlist that simon helpfully massively expanded.
Im playing catch up on albums now anyway and im sure its the same for a lot of you so why wait for voting period to start it.
I'll post the link below once I've done it, but I want a cup of tea first. Im gasping!
