Let’s keep it brief, okay folks? This is the second part of our Top 50, Album of the Year list. At the end, you’ll find our Top 10, while tomorrow we’ll have individual staff members’ top 10 lists and our Outliers section: albums that were placed on individual top 10’s but didn’t make the Top 50 list.

The albums you’ll find here were ones that had broad consensus among our large group of staff writers and editors as truly excellent representations of the worlds of metal and other heavy music this year. No doubt you’ll find things to quibble with, but we’re proud of this list and the entries therein.

If you haven’t yet, check out Part I of this list, listing numbers 50 to 26. Alright, OK, no more words. Let’s get to it!

I gotta say, The Dillinger Escape Plan are weird, but this is a next level of weird. When it was announced that they were making a rap song with Jarren Benton for an EP by Converse, I didn’t really buy the idea. But seeing the video, it makes sense. The angry live energy of Dillinger goes well with the energy of Benton’s style and flow. I mean, it’s still weird, but it’s interesting. Check it out below.

Animals_DeadAir
There are so many bands plying their trade from coast to coast across every continent on this blue planet that it is common place for a hidden gem to slip by completely unnoticed. Thankfully, thanks to an article by our pals at Metal Injection, the guys in Aminals are getting some much deserved attention. Injection are guilty of bringing to my attention many of the bands I call my favorites. I still remember the first time I heard The Black Dahlia Murder, The Red Chord, Converge etc, all thanks to those lovely gentlemen. I will now also remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I heard the eclectic hardcore of Aminals, which you can get right after the jump!

Marmozets_Debut
This one has been a long time coming. Marmozets have been sweeping stages and ears by storm with assorted singles, captivating live performances and buckets of un-containable energy. Mixing math rock sensibilities most reminiscent of The Dillinger Escape Plan at their most melodic with insanely varied hardcore/pop punk vocals that move between screams and sweet caresses, Marmozets are just fresh. However, performing live and recording singles are one thing and releasing a full release is something else all together. How do the Marmozets stack up in that regard? Our wait for an answer is now over, as their album is streaming in full. Check it out below!

Welcome to the fourth part in our ongoing series of Heavy Blog Is Heavy’s “Best Of” selections where we explore a genre of music and each of our dedicated authors picks a favorite album to share a personal experience with. For our fourth list we decided to mix things up a bit and discard the genre limitations all together. Instead, we chose to focus on albums that have retained their original shine, even through dozens and dozens of listenings. This is the Heavy Blog Is Heavy Best Of Albums That Never Broke Edge

We tried to select albums that have been around long enough to prove that they can survive the test of time. However, there was no specific time limitation set so you’ll find albums from all different periods of metal (and some from outside metal). This list is truly eclectic and there’s a reason behind that: we believe that truly great music, music that has enough substance to survive past the first 50 or even 100 listenings, truly crosses all genres. Keep your mind open and your ears alert as we take you down the twisted path of our staff’s favorite albums.
