Sigh - Imaginary Sonicscape It's hard to believe that it's been 10 years since this wickedly twisted work, and still people don't seem to have caught up to it. Forget Unexpect's aquariae, Sigh's magnum opus mixes heavy/black metal with classical music/weed-clouded 70s rock/ambient/just anything.
Gamma Ray - No World Order Hail Discordia! Still on their peak of inspiritation, the german 'Helloween for connoisseurs' summon the Illuminati as adversaries, and mighty 80s Heavy Metal as a base for this no-filler uber record. If you're gonna explain to someone what metal is, show 'em this one.
