Metal as Fucks Top 100 Albums of 2011: 50-26

Getting closer to the pointy end of our list of lists!

2011 has definitely been a very busy year for 'our kind of music', with every genre imagineable coming up with the goods time and again with offerings pleasing to the ear. Over the last couple of days we've listed our top albums counting down from number 100 to 51, but to be honest there were another fifty or so albums on top of that that could have made their way into the list, with releases from the likes of Motorhead, The Rotted and Katatonia to name just three being unlucky not to make the cut. Anyways, enough of the commiserations - as Bruce Dickinson might have said - ha! on with the show - as we count down from 50 to 26...
