Metalunderground.com's Best of 2009 Awards Announced

Here we are, more than one month into 2010, the Super Bowl past, as we've yet to post our staff picks for 2009. Nevertheless, I polled our staff here at Metalunderground.com at the end of last year to obtain their picks in several categories in metal for 2009 and will now present those results.

The outlook for 2009 in metal was perhaps positive, but not phenomenal before the year began, having seen a number of landmark releases and tours in the two years prior. But when the year was over, I'd have to say I was pleasantly surprised at what a good year in metal 2009 turned out to be. As the metalcore trend fades further into horizon, we had hardly a mention of metalcore bands in this year's poll. Sure, the stalwarts will still have success, but the novelty has worn off and the genre as a whole does not generate as much buzz anymore. The only noticable trend was the growth of the thrash resurgence, which is hard to fault, giving the year a very solid metal feeling.

That said, let's get down to the details and talk about those bands that made 2009 such a solid year for heavy metal by announcing the Metalunderground.com staff picks for 2009. Here are the Metalunderground.com staff picks for the following categories: Best Metal Album of 2009, Best Metal DVD of 2009, Best Metal Newcomer of 2009, Best Live Act of 2009, and Most Anticipated Release for 2010.

Best Metal Album of 2009

There were definitely some highly anticipated followups in 2009, and there was quite a bit of agreement on the best releases this year, even moreso than other years. While not landmark releases necessarily, albums like Between The Buried And Me's "The Great Misdirect," Behemoth's "Evangelion," Amorphis' "Skyforger," Cannibal Corpse's "Evisceration Plague," Heaven & Hell's "The Devil You Know," Shadows Fall's "Retribution," Lamb of God's "Wrath," Devildriver's "Pray For Villains," and even Scar Symmetry's "Dark Matter Dimensions" all had multiple nominations.

I think there were a few albums everyone expected to be good. But the real surprise was the eventual winner of our "Best Metal Album of 2009:"

Alice In Chain's "Black Gives Way To Blue"

In retrospect, it's not such a big surprise I supposed, as Alice in Chains turned in a masterpiece in the face of skepticism and naysayers even claiming the band should have to change their name with the addition of a new singer replacing the late Layne Staley. While one cannot deny that "Black Gives Way To Blue" is a superb album, it may leave an uneasy feeling winning this category, as it is not exactly a metal album. The early favorite, Mastodon's "Crack the Skye" garnered a massive amount of votes as well to secure a close second place, with Slayer's "World Painted Blood" and Medadeth's "Endgame" earning distant thrid and fourth rankings respectively.

Interestingly, we've developed sort of a "curse" here with our annual awards. Those bands that get voted most anticipated in the prior year have never been voted "Best Metal Album" the following year. Such was the case with Lamb of God's "Wrath," snapping the band's dominance over this category over the years.

Best Metal DVD of 2009

The category of Best Metal DVD is always hard to gain a consensus on, as most people don't watch DVDs nearly as much as well listen to music. But this year had several contenders getting multiple nods, with a clear winner of:

"Anvil: The Story of Anvil"

Given all the buzz "Anvil: The Story of Anvil" generated, it's really no surprise. Other metal DVDs that got multiple mentions included Iron Maiden's "Flight 666," "Global Metal," and Dark Tranquillity's "Where Death is Most Alive."

Best Metal Newcomer of 2009

2009 saw a number of good new metal bands emerge from the underground. But if anything was clear in this year's staff poll, it was the resounding winner in this category, doing their best to spearhead the thrash revival:

Lazarus A.D.

What's impressive is that not only did Lazarus A.D. win this category decisively, but they decisively beat out a number of bands riding the momentum of previous members, some arguably could even claim "super group" status. Aside from Czar, who garnered a perfect 5/5 rating for their debut, self-titled EP and The Binary Code, the rest of the bands with multiple nominations featuring musicians from existing bands include Ex Deo, The Empire Shall Fall, Dirge Within, Steel Panther, and Them Crooked Vultures.

Best Live Act of 2009

As far as getting out and seeing shows, there is often added diversity to voting on this category due to differences in regional lineups. But the anticipation, growing discography, and participation in some big tours and obviously putting on a good show, secured this band the category of "Best Live Act of 2009":

Mastodon

The only other band that had multiple mentions was Exodus, who released a DVD and toured the world with many thrash greats as well as up-and-comers. Obviously, there are plenty of bands that are enjoyable to see live - and we encourage you to get out and support your favorite bands - our staff just had trouble agreeing on which were the best!

Most Anticipated Release of 2010

2010 looks fairly promising and has seen some of those anticipated releases out already. But having won our "Best Metal Album of 2007" award for "Fiction," the most anticipated release for 2010 was a no-brainer, scoring the most votes and total points:

Dark Tranquillity's "We Are the Void"

Will Dark Tranquillity deliver and overcome the curse to earn "Best Metal Album" for 2010?

Other highly anticipated releases include Fear Factory's "Mechanized," Dimmu Borgir's yet titled album, Living Sacrifice's "The Infinite Order," Burzum's "Belus," Borknagar's "Universal," Ihsahn's "After," Rob Zombie's "Hellbilly Deluxe 2," Orphaned Land's "The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR," Fozzy's "Chasing The Grail," and Iron Maiden's yet titled album.

In Conclusion...

2009 was a solid year in metal with some interesting twists. It should be interesting to see if the thrash revival trend continues to grow in 2010. While it seems like a good thing now, hopefully it will not reach detrimental levels.

As per tradition, we'll share with you the complete list of "Best Metal Newcomer" nominees, to give you a good place to start for investigating new bands and discovering new metal music.

Personally i think the nominations are bullsh**, but that's just my opinion, i do agree with Lazarus A.D. being the best new-comer though, those guys are badass. I had Evisceration Plague as best metal album, I dunno what the f*** is with Alice In Chains being first. And what about Cannibals DVD Centuries of Torment, I didn't even see that get mentioned, WTF. That DVD was a real treat for any Cannibal fan, I quite enjoyed it.

To the guy above me: I bought Centuries of Torment too - but you've missed the crucial point that it came out in 2008.

While I can't remember my exact picks, I had a hand in the AIC nomination. I've never been a fan of the band, and as most know I mostly listen to extreme metal, album just blew me away.

I'm amazed that Mastodon won best live band. I saw them last year and they bored the arse off of me. And that's not me expressing a hatred for them or anything because I saw them opening for Metallica in 2007 and was super impressed. Can't say I agree with the post about Gojira being the best live band either as I saw them the same day and left after one or two songs. I had a hand in getting AIC best album, although my number one choice was Sepultura.

Little question for DB, what happened to the newcomer and album of the decade awards?

This was just for 2009. The decade lists will be put to use soon.

And just to clarify the process for those who are new here: The entire staff submits their votes for each category and the winners are determined by how many points (votes+position) they get overall. So it's really just a poll of sorts, but I think it bears some weight given that the people voting are fairly knowledgable about metal (being writers for this site).

I'd love to open this up to the public, but public polls are notoriously tricky for stopping cheating and I don't think I've got the time or patience for that just yet. But it's in the back of my mind and if I find myself in a position to try it out one year, I will.

Oh yeah, I meant to add that I only mention the bands and albums that get more than one vote, because the total list of everything that got a mention would just be too much to write out.

I agree with about half of these. Muscically, I don't think the new Alice in Chains is the best of '09, but they do deserve that kinda recognition after all the hell they've been through. I still don't see why nobody mentions "The Infection" by Chimaira. I personally chose that as my album of the year. I know it's not groundbreaking by any means, but it's still an amazingly heavy album with really good catchy songs. I was very pleased to see Dirge Within mentioned as one of the top newcomers of the year. Their debut album is f***in killer and the fact that they're from my hometown of Chicago duzn't hurt at all. STAY METAL MY FRIENDS!

Thanks for the list of new stuff, I'm always looking for something different.

And I really recommend you guys check out Alestorm, when I first heard them about a year ago I thought they were ridiculous. They have this whole thing about being "True Scottish Pirate Metal", kind of a joke about True Norwegian Back Metal. But they're awesome, and they have a keytar. And...when they talk they sound like actual pirates. I dig it =)

Also really impressed with Lazarus A.D.

@ponchopeth - Ne Obliviscaris put out a demo in 2007 and haven't done anything since, newcomers have to have output in the year we are voting for. (Maybe this year with their full length they'll get in).

Also, you don't like Mastodon but you like The Faceless? Lol. And I'm the biggest Cynic fan on this site and I didn't vote it for one of the best of the decade either.

while i agree with a lil bit of the list, and even tho a vet grunge fan, the AiC win was a fail imo. either mastodon or log deserved that one. gojira definitely shouldda been there somewhere. i loved that log, DD, mastodon, shads, SS and DT were at least mentioned on there. i liked the last albums released in 2009 from static-x, nightrage, insomnium, darkest hour, manson, august burns red, and austrian death machine, of course, i'm restrictly speaking of METAL only, but i understand y none of those were even mentioned. i canNOT WAIT for a staff/members poll.

DB: a probable solution would b since u have the emails of each registered member, just send a mass email to ONLY the staff and members of an online application that polls their choices for each category and u can only enter it with ur member info. seems nice and easy and since u strictly send it to members/staff only, it'll prevent cheating and ppl with multiple accounts, also u don't announce it on MU kuz then ppl WILL just create multiple accounts to get the email.

Bear in mind that there are hundreds of releases each year in metal and no more than 20 people that vote in this thing, so chances are that several bands or albums you like won't win. In the words of Lenny McLean, "stop f***ing moaning."

One of the most interesting debates for our music is:
What is Metal? IMO 09 was a huge year for metal. I also feel that AIC BGW2B is a bold pick for album of 09. But it is difficult for me to justify against such releases as Crack the Skye, Baroness Blue Album, Converge Axe to Fall, Job for a Cowboy Ruination, Red Chord Fed..., and Between the Buried and Me Great Misdirect. Not to mention a LOG album that is a progressive step for that band. With so much sonically and technically challenging music, the choice seems questionable. I don't feel AIC is Metal. But some would ? the groups on my list.
Most anticipated release of 2010 is without a doubt
High on Fire Snakes for the Divine.

obviously all opinion, but it was a watered down year as far as new releases go. strictly because they never let down Converge's Axe to Fall has to be my choice. They keep that unique genre defying sound while constantly reinventing their own sound. Very much looking forward to 2010 and hoping to get some solid releases...maybe Deathspell Omega will throw something this side of the Atlantic? Either way, we all already know what the best album of 2010 will be. Burzum's Belus....just ask Varg, he will tell you (sarcasm). However I am looking forward to it...

Mastodon is nowhere near my list of best live bands. I saw them at Mayhem, and my friends saw them with Dethklok. Psychedic for sure, like I suppose seeing Pink Floyd must feel like, but not what I would call "AWESOM-O super-badass live show!" at all.

Goatwhore and Suffocation are fervently battling for best live show this past year for me honestly. Kreator is up there too.

sh**. I forgot Skeletonwitch and Warbringer. I think Suffocation takes it actually. Seen em twice, and entertaining as f*** both times. As funny to watch as they are brutal to mosh to.

Mastodon gets best album though. Nile gets second.

NOW THIS IS WHAT I REAEEEEEEAAAAAALLLLLYYYY have a problem with.

Alice In Chains is not metal. you can discuss all you want the validity of calling them stoner or doom metal, but at the end of the day, they're a f***ing grunge band. A ROCK band for christ's sake!! Not Metal.

I love the f***ing album, I do. Like Cynic, I didnt really give that much of a crap about AIC UNTILL this album, and it moved me, in almost the same manner that the Masodon album did. I'm practically in love with the album(platonic, of course), but that doesnt make it a metal album. Just because you dress your little boy in pink and buy him barbie, that doesnt mean he doesnt have a p***s.

I understand the points about Alice In Chains. They have some connections to metal, have some heavier songs on this album and historically, but are not entirely metal. With all the genre blending and new genres and combinations popping up all the time, metal music (or music in general) can be seen as a spectrum or continuum. Even if you try to define metal or any genre strictly, you have to consider that bands outside that definition are some part metal.

I honestly thought Mastodon would take this category, and any other year, the number of votes they got would have secured it. But given that we cover Alice in Chains here, they are fair game for voting and won many of our staff over. But I do understand the other side of the argument as well.

Hard to believe there was not one nod to Fracture Point. For a debut album, Inherit The Downfall was kick (insert pause for emphasis here) ass. For a first album and a young crew, these guys put together a technically proficient, intelligent album. I can't wait for their next effort. Kind of frustrating to see a band like Alice In Chains (a metal band only by a far-reaching stretch of the imagination) get this award.

Only my opinion...keep up the good work, guys. Metal Forever!

#1, their debut album (Mate, Feed, Kill, Repeat) was absolutely garbage so I disagree. The new album isn't an exact replica of "Slipknot" or "Iowa" you're right. Does that mean because it's not as heavy it's their worst release? I really don't understand all the Slipknot hating post-Iowa. I thought Subliminal Verses was the weakest overall. If you don't like what the dudes act like that's fine...but to say the music is losing talent, getting weaker, or selling out is crazy IMO. I'm of the opinion that the music isn't getting "less heavy" to appeal to a broader audience. I just don't see it. I see it as expansion. The lyrics are still powerful, political, and basically everything Slipknot has ever been.
