Best of 2010: Topon Das

Well, the year is wrapping up and Year End Lists are popping up everywhere. You can see Metal Sucks’ lists here, Metal Injection’s lists here, Deseee of TNOTB’s list here, Bad Penny’s list here and so on, so on. The lists are never ending. I posted my own list a few weeks ago (like a dumbass). I did so not thinking “Hey! There’s a shit-ton more albums that you didn’t listen to. So, after listening to some more amazing albums, I will be posting a new, revamped Top 10 early next week. Until then, if I can get some more people to hit me back, I’ll be posting some musicians’ own lists.


First up is Topon Das, guitarist of Fuck The Facts.

1. Year Of No Light – Ausserwelt

2. The Abominable Iron Sloth – The Id Will Overcome

3. Kill The Client – Set For Extinction

4. Defeatist – Sixth Extinction

5. Unearthly Trance – V

6. Bongripper – Satan Worshipping Doom

7. Bison B.C. – Dark Ages
