Was just reading a list from Loudwire of their top albums of the decade. It was Okay but not great, but what do you expect from Loudwire?

Anyways it got me thinking - is there going to be a poll on the Metal Archives forum for the top albums of the decade? It was be a massive task for sure, but I can see it being really cool and rather monumental, since this occasion only comes around every 10 years. Thoughts?

Y'all know it's coming. The 2019 poll will run at the usual time and I'll be continuing the mid-year polls as well. Voting for the Decade poll will start in March and be posted in April unless there's a flood of whining (which there usually is) but that's the plan for now.

Thanks!! I appreciate you doing it later instead of trying to jam it in before 2020.

Yeah I start the voting for the year end poll in December and publish it on Jan 1st (when I can, which I think is every time so far) because I think that's the prime time to get it out while not jumping the gun and doing it after ten months like Decibel does, but with the decade poll I know all of us are huge fucking nerds who are going to want a ton of time to get their lists situated before submitting so I'm more than willing to add a few months to it even if most of the collective internet fervor will have died down by then.

Without reading the list I can guarantee that it includes the following:
Behemoth's Satanist, Judas Priest's Firepower, the new Mayhem album, the new Tool album, Ghost, Baroness, Mastodon, Slipknot, Yob, and some album released this month that nobody's going to remember in 2020.

I can always use more "don't waste my time listening to these" type lists.
