Roadrunner Artists share their Top 10’s of 2010

You know how much we love Top 10 lists at Dose of Metal, as evident in our weekly Top 10 every Friday. So it comes in no surprise that I was very interested in seeing the Top 10 lists some musicians, including Robb Flynn of Machine Head, Mikael Akerfeld of Opeth and Bloodbath and Dave Ellefson of Megadeth, shared lately.

Let’s jump right into it after the jump.

Mikael Akerfeldt (Opeth / Bloodbath):

10. Tears for Fears – Seeds of Love
9. Toshi Ichiyanagi – Flowers
8. The Dream – Get Dreamy
7. Yonin Bayashi – Isshoku Sokuhatsu
6. Serge Gainsbourg – Historie de Melody Nelson
5. Pain of Salvation – Road Salt Pt. 1
4. The Churchills – s/t
3. Vashti Bunyan – Just Another Diamond Day
2. Wil Malone – Wil
1. David Crosby – If I could only remember my Name

Robb Flynn (Machine Head):

10. Exodus – Exhibit B: The Human Condition
9. Sevendust – Cold Day Memory
8. Jay-Z – The Blueprint 3
7. Shinedown – The Sound Of Madness
6. Karnivool – Sound Awake
5. Avenged Sevenfold – Nightmare
4. Flyleaf – Flyleaf & Memento Mori
3. Protest The Hero – Fortress
2. Eminem – Recovery
1. Deftones – Diamond Eyes

“From the first time I heard the song “Diamond Eyes” I was floored. Deftones managed to do what is the most exhilarating, and yet most difficult thing to do for any band, to keep the foundation of your sound, but infuse it with something modern or fresh. In their case, this was accomplished with guitarist Stephan Carpenter’s introduction of an 8-string guitar, and some serious Meshuggah-worshipping riffs. Chino fully exploring his range and harmonizing skills, Frank Delgado’s keyboards / DJ-ing adding some incredible mind-bending depth and ambiance, while drummer Abe Cunningham and new bassist Sergio Vega’s poly-rhythmic foundation somehow glued it all together. That the band was able to pull it from the depths of such a horrible situation, is even more of a testament to how good this band truly is. Crushingly heavy, beautiful, passionate, real, Diamond Eyes is my album of the year.”
