Limbs from Agalloch's Ashes Against The Grain should be here if you heard it.

You'd better do. Agalloch's one of the finest bands I've ever heard.

Hell yes to Fireball, I was just listening to it yesterday, and many more times this week. Exo's also a nearly-as-awesome song and album. Painkiller nice intro though I don't care too much for the song, and Met I'd without doubt go for Justice / Blackened, though perhaps just cos it's among my favs of all time

Haven't really heard any of the others yet. I have to mention Cathedral, 1993 as a strong candidate... Maybe also the Joe Satriani albums from 87 and 06... oh! And '86 Megade again

death ‡ thrash ‡ death/doom/prog ‡ Hail Zoldon!

Ad Met: I like Justice album and the song very much but I can't trade it for Hit The Lights, because the punk-hysterical chorus do skyrocket me every time.
Ad Cathedral: I'm making a note but since I can't come to terms with doom for years, it goes quite low at the to-listen-to list.
Ad Satriani: This has been already recommended to me few times, so I guess I'm going for it .
