The Top Ten

1 Crack the Skye - Mastodon
2 Cosmogenesis - Obscura

All songs are very good but to name a few - Orbital Elements, Universe Momentum, Anticosmic Overload, Centric Flow.
Musicianship and perfectionism of this album impressed me. I also like very much the sound of the fretless bass played by Jeroen Paul Thesseling.
Cosmogenesis was awarded "Best Death Metal Album of the year 2009" by Loudwire. I don't trust anyone's ratings but this time I agree with Loudwire.
