Been bit of a fallow year for me personally in Rock/Metal. None of my major faves, Rollins, Devin Townsend, Queens of the Stone Age or Voivod have put out any recordings this year. In fact four most the bands on this top ten (1,2,4 & 8) where rooted out over the last couple of weeks in an effort to make the numbers up! I know I’m abit out of touch, but 2004 seems to have been the year of the “Best of Album”, Guns and Roses, Marilyn Manson, Korn… Anthrax even got in on the act by recording stuff off their first four albums !!
Saying that, Mastodon & Biffy Clyro were definate finds, with the added bonus that they are both touring in Feb 05. Well happy about that!
