          I could be wrong, but I don't see where anyone mentioned Lamb of God--Wrath. I TOTALLY forgot about it somehow, it is a 2009 release and could be a contender. (Though I think Slayer has 'em beat)

          And though I've already said I think Slayer has it all wrapped up, that was before I bought Nile--Those whom the gods detest. That could be the one--maybe.

            I like your comment. Nile's new album is dangerously fierce and powerful. It may well take this year's throne of death metal and extreme metal in general, even above Hypocrisy's raging new album...Asphyx is a seriously heavy slab of truest Asphyx with Martin back on board, but musically Nile and Hypocrisy rise above it...

            Paradise Lost reigns the world of melodic metal, rising just above the almost equally excellent new albums of Swallow The Sun and Amorphis...

            Heaven & Hell has taken the #1 spot in old school heavy metal - it probably happened on the day of release already...

            For me the main thing is that this year has been a one big celebration of great new releases from many bands I follow and admire!

              This has been a good thread. I have spent considerable time listening to many of these albums on youtube. Many are now on my buy list, though I need to get past Christmas before investing in any new CDs.

                  I listened to the Children of Bodom on youtube yesterday (about 4 songs) and liked it. Ya' hear me, The Butt? Are you surprised?

                    I like KISS. Sonic Boom is a decent album. I like it well enough, just not ranking up there for best of 2009. Still holding that honor IMO is AIC, Black Gives Way To Blue.

                      I am. That fills me with a kind of joy, man.

                      May I ask which songs? I think the latest that Purgatory was referring to, was the cover album (Skeletons in the Closet). If he's not referring to that, it was Blooddrunk, which, while not 2009, was a fantastic full-length in it's own right.

                        I clicked on Dethcrush666's playlist that started with Hell is for Children. I didn't pay so much attention to what songs followed or exactly how many I listened to. I am a chronic multitasker and was probably doing a dozen other things while listening.

                          Decent. So it was off the cover album then, Skeletons in the Closet.

                          If you liked the covers I'd advise you to check out the full album... and work backwards in the discography from there if you continue liking it.

                            Alice in Chains - Black Gives Way to Blue

                            William DuVall fits in with the band very well and it still sounds like the AIC we all love. Not a bad song on the album, many good ones.
                            If you tried to give Heavy Metal another name, you might call it "Tony Iommi."

                              The Devil You Know - Heaven and Hell (say no more!)

                              Death Magnetic - Metallica (welcome return to form, though it may have actually been '08)

                              This Is Thirteen - Anvil (an old favourite band resurrected)
                              He is not here. He has risen!

                                I have another 2009 recommendation that I don't think has been mentioned yet:

                                Riverside - Anno Domini High Definition
