My Top Ten Favorite Albums of All Time

I've been listening to metal for over a decade now. Here's my all time "favorites" list. Updated with comments March 24th, 2016. I started with death metal acts of In Flames and Dark Tranquility. I went to power metal for a long time, yet have circled back with getting re-introduced to Insomnium, Omnium Gatherum, and Be'lakor.

1. In Flames - The Jester Race
1995 (The album that got me "unplugged")
2. Omnium Gatherum - Beyond
2013 (One of the best representations I've seen of genre mixing. Excellent melodeath.)
3. Be'lakor - Of Breath and Bone
2012 (Amazing death metal from down under. Also interesting they came from punk genre.)
4. Wintersun - Wintersun
2004 (Every song struck a chord with me.)
5. Angra - Temple of Shadows
2004 (Didn't know a metal band could cover the crusades in a personal journey. )
6. Opeth - Blackwater Park
2001 (Again, this album made me stretch what I thought metal could do.)
7. Dragonland - Astronomy
2006 (So much diversity in this album. So much to explore.)
8. Ensiferum - Ensiferum
2001 (This debut album from Ensiferum made me nod continuously from start to finish.)
9. Kalmah - The Black Waltz
2006 (Top of its class in Swamp Metal. Bar none.)
10. Rhapsody Of Fire - Symphony Of Enchanted Lands
1998 (Great neo-classical metal w/story telling.)
