Album of the year 2006

fratellis album was good , quite fresh - some catchy tunes
Definately Anaal Nathrakh's "Eschaton". The british duo mastered the transformation from raw black metal to death/grind perfectly, and released a kickass album.

Got to give an honourable mention to Darkthrone, who showed with their "The Cult Is Alive" that you can take 17 steps back and three to the side and still stay the tr00est band in the genre.
