7- Celestial Season - "the Secret Teachings"
The melodic take on funeral doom this band from the Netherlands brings to the table has more than just a solid dose of goth to it. This is the album My Dying Bride wishes they put out this year.
2- Pallbearer - " Forgotten Days"
Yeah I know it is surprising they did not take the number one spot. It was a tough call and a great year for doom. I have listened and will continue to listen to this album a helluva lot. It stacks up against their already impressive body of work and in some ways is a return to the more metal sound of their first album.
