GMD Poll: Top Ten Albums of 2002


Dimension Hatröss
May 22, 2015


Reminder of the rules:
- please submit at least *5* releases. But just remember, real men vote at 10.
- first place in your rankings gets 10 points, 2nd gets 9, etcetc, 10th gets 1.
- feel free to post more than 10, but only the top 10 will get points.
- feel free to post less than 10, the same scoring will apply.
- feel free not to rank your picks, in which case all ten picks will get 5.5 points.
- if you're so much of a dick that you have to post more than 10 unranked picks, only the first 10 will count. In other words, go back to the third rule.

Submit your lists by August 4th.

What did he do?

It was uncovered that he was convicted of child porn possession and distribution. From what I read, it seemed more like he was a retarded edgelord that thought child rape videos were cool than him being a definite pedophile, but either way not the kind of thing you want on your record.
This one for sure as release dates are what counts. Personally I avoid putting compilation albums on my list but I can't think of an issue with including them.

Agreed. ^

If it's unreleased shit, the date counts, but I also don't bother including comps.
1 - Arghoslent - Incorrigible Bigotry
2 - Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors
3 - Vintersorg - Visions from the Spiral Generator
4 - Graveland - Memory and Destiny
5 - Taake - Bjoergvin
6 - Inquisition - Invoking the Majestic Throne of Satan
7 - Behemoth - Zos Kia Cultus
8 - Bathory - Norland I
9 - Judas Iscariot - To Embrace the Corpses Bleeding
10 - Deathspell Omega - Inquisitors of Satan
