I had a good time talking about some of my favorites from last year and the metal albums that I am looking forward in 2011. The albums reviewed were Yngwie Malmsteen – Relentless (2010), Nox Aurea – Ascending in Triumph (2010), Bane – Chaos, Darkness and Emptiness (2010) and Twisted Sister – Stay Hungry (1984). I played a bunch of new songs and did some random picking from iTunes to dig up some great songs including early Sentenced.
When you look back at the year 2010 in metal, you will have to admit that 2010 absolutely rocked. There were so many great releases. I cannot remember a year with such quantity of remarkable releases in a long time. It was great to pull out some of these releases that I have not listened to in months since this episode. What a great year. I just hope that 2011 is close to as good. I can honestly say that, from the 2011 releases that I was lucky enough to hear already, this is shaping out to be a great year for metal. Just wait until you hear Eastern Front and the new Onslaught.
