Honestly, I have not heard enough of this year's "Christian" releases to form a top list that's exclusive to Christian bands.  I wouldn't know where to start other than the Vials of Wrath disc.....

Man, it's hard for me to say what was the best. 2015 was a pretty great year for CBM. Here's my list, though these are all very close:

1. Vials of Wrath - Days Without Names

Though it wasn't the scene-defining, instant-classic masterpiece that I had initially hoped it would be, it was an incredibly solid, amazing album that enthralls you and pulls you into another world.

2. Orationem - Fulfiller, Sustainer, Preserving Protector

Excellent, uniquely-riffed black metal from Thomas Eversole. The ambient sections were fantastic as well.

3. Skald in Veum - 1260 Days

Really fast, old-school Swedish black metal. I had my hopes up high for this one and it was slightly disappointing, but still fantastic music.

4. Morgarten - Risen to Fight

We really need more folk/black metal in the Christian scene, and this Swiss band provided for us. It's solid, folky but still grim black metal. Well-produced and entertaining.

5. O, Majestic Winter - Eternal Shores: A Spiritual Odyssey

OMW is one of those bands that some people love, others hate, and others feel indifferent towards. I tend to fall into the first category of loving them. With this album, they kind of struck a middle-ground between the sheer brutality of their first album and the calm, depressive atmosphere of their second. The combination worked very well. Lots of cool ambient sections, but some of the riffs were still way too repetitive.

My top picks are not Christian, but here they are:

Fave albums for 2015 for me would be:
-----------------------------------------------------
1. Sirenia - The Seventh Life Path



This would be album of the year for me.

A beautiful combination of Gothic Metal and Symphonic Metal, with undertones of Melodic Death Metal. This album captured my attention right away when I first bought it back in May. Right after my birthday, so it was kinda like a belated birthday present to myself. I was wondering then if it would stack up to be album of the year or not ... and I was right. Each time I come back to this platter of Gothic Metal goodness and taste the crispy apples of Symphonic Metal delight, I am hooked deeper and deeper by this monster. Anyway - good album.

------------------------------------------------------------
2. Cradle of Filth - Hammer of the Witches

I concur with my friend Thomas on this one. This album is very very good!!! I almost voted it as my album of the year, save for the fact that I love the new Sirenia SO much - I just could not bring myself to do it. Anyway - this album is very good. Symphonic Black Metal of the finest quality. Undergirded by Gothic Metal and Melodic Black Metal (lots of melodic territory on this one), this album just sets out to SLAUGHTER!!!


---------------------------------------------------------
3. Chant - Brave New Apocalypse

This is a good and solid Industrial Rock album. Pretty underground release. I doubt anyone here as heard of it - unless they are in the current Industrial scene. I saw this band open up for KMFDM last summer - and they KILLED! Excellent show - and I bought this album at that show. Sure enough ... the album really nails it too. Great studio recording and great live band!


---------------------------------------------------------
4. Cattle Decapitation - The Anthropocene Extinction

This is a really good Deathgrind album. If that genre suits you - then look into this one! It's very intricate throughout. There are some songs that are very Technical Death Metal oriented, but they always go somewhere - instead of just wanking around like a lot of Technical Death Metal does. Recommended. Solid album.

Can't say that I've bought one album of metal that would qualify as " Christian " ( in my view of course ) this year.

Closest thing would have to be Signum Regis.

You don't have "a glue"?  Glue is pretty cheap down at the Walmart.  Not having glue is hardly and excuse.

Yeah, but for me glue is everything! I can`t live without the glue....
And we don`t have the Walmart here. Just a Tokmanni Smile. They have expensive glue.

Whoa, my favorites are going to be really different. I didn't get ahold of WASP or Stryper until after Christmas or they might have gone on there. My list had a lot less metal on it than normal and doesn't really include stuff from the current year, just stuff I found that year. Oh, and a lot of them aren't Christian... but these are my top five.

Marmozets - The Weird and Wonderful Marmozets
White Lighter - White Lighter
I Fight Dragons - The Near Future
Symphony X - Underworld
Queensryche - Condition Human

Yeah, I never picked up that WASP yet either. I'll get it eventually. Same with Stryper and a few others.

One album from 2015 that I'm getting right away now that I've discovered it though is Revulsed.
