Sometimes when I listen to some deeply creative music, some of them makes me wonder about different worlds, universes or stories. This list is just a little extract of all the wondrous creations that I know.

Created by: qlacs | 20.07.2011

1. Disillusion - Back To Times Of Splendor
2004 / Every song on the album teleports me to a different landspace. And these are varying from a mountain lake embraced by nature (A Day By The Lake) to some totally deserted landscape (the title track). The whole thing is a something unusual. One of the few albums I used to sleep to.
2. Persefone - Core
2006 / A very well-written concept album that really "shows" you the story. Congratulations, Carlos!
3. Fairyland - Score To A New Beginning
2009 / This isn't particularly a milestone album, but the great orchestrations really uplifts the songs and helps you imagine a fantasy world where we sail the seas and fight legends at the gates of Morken!
4. Blind Guardian - Nightfall In Middle-Earth
1998 / Oh, yes. The one that was hugely inspired by Tolkien's masterpiece. I can see orcs right there.
5. Ensiferum - Iron
2004 / Jari Maenpaa can't do any wrong. Iron makes easier to imagine you're a viking from the north fighting for you own land.
6. Jupiter Society - Terraform
2009 / Jupiter Society's music is purely based on slow intriguing melodies - it's like you would watching a sci-fi movie while listening to a space-symphony.
7. Kalisia - Cybion
2009 / Cybion is a journey to the future.
8. Opeth - Blackwater Park
2001 / I don't think I have to introduce the realm of Blackwater Park :)
9. Thy Catafalque - Róka Hasa Rádió
2009 / Atmospheric avantgarde music. The title is hungarian, it means "Fox's Belly Radio". It would be enough I think, but believe me you really can't imagine how good this album is.
10. Agalloch - The Mantle
2002 / Obviously one of the best stuff to smoke on, you heartbeat will fall down almost too much and easy to sleep on.
11. Moonsorrow - Varjoina Kuljemme Kuolleiden Maassa
2011 / This stuff with an unpronounceable name drags you to an extinct world where you can find no hopes. Am I right? Yeah, totally. This dark blend will give you goosebumps.
12. W.A.S.P. - The Crimson Idol
1992 / The coolest 90's heavy metal that makes you feel like you're 18 again and rise against the whole world!
13. Cloudkicker - Beacons
2010 / This so-called "the metal version of God Is An Astronaut" has gained upon its master. For real.
14. Radiance [FIN] - The Burning Sun
2010 / Introduced by a friend to me (and also introduced to some other by me) Radiance is somewhat like a more gripping and faster version of Jupiter Society, with more guitars. Same singer - Mats Levén Rules!
15. Indukti - S.U.S.A.R.
2004 / Flying above unknown but dark and beautiful landscapes, much like in the ancient Egypt, however the sun blinds you at times.
16. Unmoored - Indefinite Soul-Extension
2003 / One hell of an album.
17. Symbyosis - Crisis
2000 / If you can get yourself through the average production, and the fact that the band used a drum machine on this, it can be a very interesting sci-fi trip.
18. Edge Of Sanity - Crimson
1996 / Both Crimson I and II telling you a dark, sometimes sad story, although for me it's sometimes drives away from the concept musically.
19. Moonsorrow - Kivenkantaja
2003 / Seriously, this is like when you're riding through the mystic cold northern forests, discovering caves carved by the sea, and... Everything that is.
20. Indukti - Idmen
2009 / Flying above unknown but dark and beautiful landscapes Part II.
21. Forgotten Silence - Senyaan
1998 / No comment.
22. Pain Of Salvation - The Perfect Element, Part I
2000 / Definitely great album. "Brought here by The Mechanist" :D
23. God Is An Astronaut - All Is Violent, All Is Bright
2005 / Sleep tight.
24. Opeth - Still Life
1999 / Oh, another mighty Opeth release.
25. Pain Of Salvation - "BE"
2004 / Some songs doesn't really fit the concept IMO, but when I'm listening to the rest I'm thinking about travelling from past to future (of humanity), and back.
26. Agalloch - Ashes Against the Grain
2006 / Undescribable journeys.
27. Forgotten Silence - Ka Ba Ach
2000 / Epicentre of eastern adventures. From Czech! :D
28. Hieronymus Bosch - Artificial Emotions
2005 / Much like Norwegian bands, the northern russian cold has effect on this music.
29. In Vain - The Latter Rain
2007 / Exceptional for being the most diverse black metal album of all times for me.
30. Kaipa - In The Wake Of Evolution
2009 / Fairies, forest, lakes.
31. Lykathea Aflame - Elvenefris
2000 / Loosely based on egyptian themes, LA's only album led you to the darkes myths of that land.
32. Savage Circus - Dreamland Manor
2005 / Blind Guardian copy.
33. Omnium Gatherum - New World Shadows
2011 / I don't want to say anything about this. Just listen.
34. Beyond Twilight - Section X
2005 / Thrilling, mysterious darkness.
35. Unexpect - In A Flesh Aquarium
2006 / Weird world. WEEEEEIRD!
36. Warren Robert - Music From the Void
2009 / Travelling across tibetian monasteries, meditating, zen.
37. Mechanical Poet - Woodland Prattlers
2004 / Cute.
38. Vital Remains - Dechristianize

What would we do without fun, don't we?
I really hope the rating will hit that once.
