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 JUNE 1st.
Course we're doing the 70s one way or another. Since we didn't do the years individually, I like the idea of doing up to 20 with each person's top pick getting 20 points etc. Either that or I've scraped together way more honourable mentions than what I had for the 80s decade thread. Splitting the decade would thin the choices/participation out too much though.

Honestly I've lost interest lmao if anybody else feels like wrapping this up go ahead, otherwise it's open-ended so plenty of time.
Festive poll bump. Plenty more people out there with nothing better to do over holiday time than come up with lists, right?

I count exactly ten albums earning more than 10 points, so it may be a pube's width over being worth tallying up. I'll tally it up in mid-January after the rush of lists that'll almost certainly never appear, Xmas ruined etc. I mean, we've got tallies for every other year in metal history up to 2019 so what the hell.

Don’t we just have 2020 (and eventually 2021) left after this? This has been a multi-year project that’s almost complete. We might as well finish what we started…
Exactly what I was getting at here:
we've got tallies for every other year in metal history up to 2019 so what the hell.
But it's never complete until death. ;) 2021 is a real deadass year for me so far though. I just haven't really cared for anything I've heard outside of some local bands. Will have to dig around.
