There are always going to be those people who say, “Oh, there’s nothing good out now and I only like stuff from 1987 blah blah blah,” and those people have usually just missed the point. I think, any way you want to look at it, 2010 has kicked some serious ass so far.
Not only did we finally get a new Solace record, but with albums from High on Fire, Sasquatch, Darkthrone, Cathedral, The Brought Low, Ufomammut, Asteroid, Brant Bjork, Nachtmystium, The Wounded Kings, Karma to Burn, Apostle of Solitude and (apparently) Anathema, but there’s still more to come from the likes of Zoroaster, Firebird and Grand Magus, so it’s no fluke.
Today is June 15, halfway through the sixth of the 12 months, so I figured there wasn’t a better time to start revealing my top five of the first half of 2010. It was rough putting together the list, because there’s a lot of good stuff, but in the end it came down (as always) to what I keep going back to hear over and over.
So, with that said, I hope you enjoy this year’s TFFH. We’ll begin shortly with number five…
