Best Extreme Metal Releases of 2011 So Far


Ladies and Gentlemen as well as You Others it is that time of year for SCUMFEAST METAL's Annual Mid Year Best Extreme Metal Releases of 2011. Alright actually it's our first one. Look for years now every swinging dick in print and now online puts out a year end list of with what they believe are the year's best releases. They usually come out at the "End of the Year", but (as I predicted once) now they come out earlier each year. Sure there's valid reasons like advertising dollars. Look big name magazine or website says this release on "our label" is the best thing since Thomas Edison invented the quadraphonic stereo system or something technical like that. But lets be honest here it's really about competition and were print publications are slow the Internet is faster.

Now today while I was getting ready for my three day holiday weekend drinking binge I stumbled upon another music related website that had a mid year best of 2011 list of metal (well some of them were metal) releases. My first thought was hey they stole my idea, seriously I had that idea in January. My second thought was wow their choices are really bad but hey maybe they don't get as many really cool and Extreme releases like Scumfeast Metal 666. So with that said here's what I believe are at least the best 35 releases so far for 2011 that I've heard.
