Thumbs up: +27
My first list! Celebrating 25+ years of listening to metal I present my 25 favorite metal albums. Mostly prog and thrash in my early years and exploring other metal avenues today, I hope my fellow metalheads will take notice and discover (or re-discover) some great music!

Dunno, I can't post an album on my list that isn't in the MS datebase...I would feel pretentious...
R'Vannith - 28.10.2011 at 08:25  
Some great albums here nice list, I must remember to check out Todtgelichter.
tea[m]ster - 04.11.2011 at 06:23

You don't like Disillusion? That is a really, really good album man! Terrific prog! As for Killswitch, that album is a dirty little pleasure. I try to stay away from bands that are the most mainstream, shoved down our throats, heard same song 5 times a day on the local rock radio station. That album (specifically "My Curse") was waaaay over-played but it's sooo good.

Good list by the way dude. Interesting Maiden pick because that one is a real gem and gets overlooked by a lot of people.

Thanks! I had to do a massive google image search to find the pic, lol. Yea, Somewhere in Time doesn't quite get the love from Maiden fans. Also, my favorite two tracks on the album are ones that don't get "noticed" as strong songs either: Sea Of Madness and Heaven Can Wait.

I think Sea of Madness is a very strong track as well! Usually people focus on Wasted Years but I would say Sea of Madness, The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner, and Alexander the great are the best songs. Not that Wasted Years is weak.

Thumbs up for Arktika! At Zero is awesome As well as Todtgelichter!
And I'm glad to see that I'm not the only person who thinks that Somewhere In Time is the best Iron Maiden album.

Sure! There are some bands I didn't listen to yet, so I'll take this list as a guide for my next discoveries

Great list. Going to create one of my own soon I think. I'm happy that someone else also absolutely loves the atmo/sludge/doom movement so popular nowadays. Surprised at Katatonia though. I'd choose "The Great Cold Distance" if I had to put in Katatonia.

Thanks! The bottom 5 or so seem to fluctuate. I have waaaay too many albums (over 1,000) so my feelings change from time to time. I love NITND. The song structures and production are top-notch.

Surprised to see Circus Maximus - Isolate here honestly since they seem to try hard to be dream theater. You could have the Dream Theater instead of them easily.
Good job with Godflesh and porcupine tree. Glad that I am not the ovly one who thinks fear of blank planet is their best

Great list, I haven't heard half of this stuff so i have work to do!
deadone - 20.02.2014 at 00:08  
Tea[m]ster, really surprised at some of the more conventional bands listed there.

Good stuff!

"Prong - Cleansing"

Mah boy.

EDIT: Ah, shit. I just broke the 25 theme.

"Prong - Cleansing"


Second half of the album might be better than the first...incredulously.

Damn Dude that is a seriously diverse List I am Impressed!
Dangerboner - 23.07.2014 at 22:12  
Don't you think Parallels gets a little tiresome towards the end?

Nope. Two of the best songs on the album are near the end. "We Only Say Goodbye" and "Don't Follow Me". Both were met with critical acclaim; I actually heard them on the local radio station at the time of release. And the ender is a beautiful closing song. Marked new territory for FW - slow and emotional, much like a ballad...progressive metal style.
