Best of the Best – A Tally of the Year’s Best Albums
I’m not sure exactly what this list means – is this list any better than any of the individual lists? Probably not. Every list that comes out has their own personality, has albums that may be less obvious. But perhaps what this list does show is what the collective metal media thought was the “can’t miss” albums this year.
Anders Nyström from Katatonia: The Hellbound Interview
“We get approached by people who measure years in terms of success and how you’ve risen on the proverbial ladder. Even some friends and relatives ask question why we are not more successful. We put twenty years into this band and they ask us why don’t have fancy cars and fancy houses, but that was never the goal of our band. Our goal is that we still exist after 20 years and we’re still going strong. Many bands nowadays don’t even have any more original band members within their ranks.”
Raymond Westland in conversation with Anders Nystrom of Katatonia.

Since Hellbound.ca is a Canadian-owned and operated metal publication, we do things a little bit different than most.

We then tabulated up their responses and have created our third annual Top 10 Canadian Metal Albums writers poll.
Please check out what our writers feel to be the best Canadian metal albums released in 2011.
