Surely one Motorhead is more than enough?

Yes please! One Motorhead is nowhere near enough for me. Loved the Sexy Beast piece by the way

hmmm, tricky, but let's go with:
1. Fucked Up - Hidden World
70+ minute hardcore punk album? Poison Idea with the ideas of Tool? Fantastic...

and the rest in no particular order:

Electric Wizard - Witchcult Today
Wolves In The Throne Room - 2 Hunters
Maylene & The Sons Of Disaster - II
Clutch - From Beale Street to Oblivion
Witchcraft - The Alchemist
Turisas - The Varangian Way

(non-metal section)
New Model Army - High
Ween - La Cucaracha
Holy Fuck - Holy Fuck

The High On Fire has a great sound, but is for some reason for me, totally forgettable...

To tell the truth, I've not bought a great many albums this year - I'll probably spend the next 6 of months mopping up what I've missed - esp. this Profound Lore business, from what I've heard I'll definitely be checking out some of 'dat shit'. Innit?
