  • hihihi

    lah daakour bayne w baynak alice in chains mfantrin 3a megadeth bl comeback taba3on

  • Jad Jawhari

    I think the MAJOR comeback this year was with Gorgoroth! “Quantos Possunt Ad Satanitatem Trahunt” marks a very important milestone in Gorgoroth’s music.

  • Elie Da32our

    yeah i heard that many black metal bands made their comeback this year:D

  • Jad Jawhari

    OOOF yes man very important comebacks to be precise. Gorgoroth disbanded, Gaal and K.I.N.G (the vocalist and guitarist, respectively) got kicked out after a legal dispute of the rightful ownership of the band. Infernus won the dispute and he recruited the Ex-vocalist and they are playing some old Gorgoroth music. Immortal also made a good comeback after all those years 😀

  • y3rvant0

    i think u should have done some polls before u write the article … coz these top 10 lists are personnal favourites … u should have taken of the lebmetal.com visitors and viewers and then put the results in this article.

  • Rami Rouhana

    Well Yervant the title says “Lebmetal.com top 10 ”

    And the second part of the article and the comments are people’s top 10.

    Maybe it will be updated with a poll taken from the comments.
