I never expected the Slipknot album to be this good. Glad that it won.

I really wanted to vote for Dayseeker, but figured they wouldn’t win. Slipknot absolutely deserves this though. 
 

I will never understand the love affair with BMTH. We turn on and slaughter bands for far more subtle changes then they’ve done. I was shocked to see that turd album on so many lists. But...just my opinion. Doesn’t matter anyway. ??‍♂️

My disappointment is unmeasurable. How did Dayseeker get into the top 4 anyway

Fuck knows. It is average post hardcore at best. I mean to each their own yes, but I agree with the comment that was made that these albums got here because of popularity and not for what they actually are. Truly great metal albums won't win if they aren't mainstream enough.

 

There were albums that are surely far more deserving to be here. Take Atonement for example. Musically it was an amazing, well written record and probably KSE's strongest album to date.

 

At least that piece of trash bmth record didn't win. Happy about that. I didn't vote in the final round, but if I had to choose I would have gone with Slipknot even though it's one of their weaker albums to me personally.

Surprised amo was in the final vote, let alone voted #2. I loved it, but it seemed like most people shit on it.

 

AOTY to Slipknot is well deserved. Took me a few listens to get in to it, but yeah it's easily the best album of 2019. Crazy that a band that's been doing this for at least 25 years is still putting out some of their best work. Solway Firth is the best song they've ever made.

Voted for Dayseeker as they were the only one that was in my top 10, if not I would've for Alien, which was also great. Haven't even listened to the new Slipknot, maybe I should?

LOL same. I never bothered to jam the new Slipknot. We could be missing out who knows? :pray:

 

But anywho, kind of unsurprising. I just wish Diamond Head and Valiant Hearts would've made it higher. GG everyone. 2019 was a fantastic year for music, albeit not the best. 2020 will be crushing i believe.

Alien being my favorite album of 2019, I wanted it to win, but oh well. We Are Not Your Kind was great too, so I can't complain.

 

Wish people would stop being so shitty with Dayseeker though. I can understand why someone would not like them, but their music is far above average compared to what pops out of the Post-Hardcore genre nowadays. Let alone, I thought Sleeptalk was awesome.

Dayseeker did good with Sleeptalk although I much prefer their previous release over Sleeptalk personally. Same with Northlane; Alien was pretty good but several of their previous releases were superior in my opinion. I just straight up did not enjoy amo, save for a song or two, and Slipknot's was great to me overall. It was only like...#8 I think on my Top 10, but of the 4 here, it was definitely my favorite. Great competition. 

 

I think this type of system for AOTY voting should be utilized for years to come. It turned out getting a much more centralized result imo.

Thanks, I worked hard on it. Though the ending could use some work, I've never really been good with endings.

A little late to the show, but here's a few of my tops in no particular order, and not because you care what my tops are, but rather that someone might check them out like I do so many times to others'.  I'm a little all over the place, but whatever.

 

Oh, AOTY for me...easily:  Auras - Binary Garden

 

The others...

 

Lone Survivor - Ground Zero

Bilmuri - Wet Milk

Siamese - Super Human

Johnny Booth - Firsthand Accounts

Oh, Sleeper - Bloodied Unbowed

Yelawolf - Ghetto Cowboy

Free Throw - What's Past is Prologue

Aurora - A Different Kind of Human (Step 2)

Doja Cat - Hot Pink

Shrezzers - Relationships

Northlane - Alien

Kadinja - Super 90'

Unprocessed - Artificial Void

Parliament Owls - A Span Is All That We Can Boast

Amo was my album of the year and Slipknot my 4th favourite, so can't really complain about the results, they both earned it!
