As is typical in recent years, my top ten have practically nothing in common with the Internet's top ten. Another year with no clear #1, and several good (rather than great) albums. Nice to see some old friends with strong comebacks, though (Hades, Candlemass).

Not many surprises (except Iron Maiden, arguably a vote for the band rather than the album), as power metal, mostly of the Euro variety, has the upper hand here.
