05:09 - Lit. Not generic, just not stand-out. Give me a fun album over an "original" album any day. At least you'll get something out of it by actually wanting to spin it more than once because you actually want to and not because you have to.
Nice and varied list, a lot of good not metal albums here but I think ( or Last.fm doess) "Atrium Carceri - Kapnobatai" was released in 2005. I do not want to be picky since I got familiar with that band after reading you suggested it somewhere in forums but its inclusion on this list might be misleading
Some cool stuff on there but I now udnerstand why our discussion never went anywhere - our music tastes are so different amigo!!
Well this list is extremely out of date now (not that I don't like anything from it, but I'd probably restrict it to one band per entry) and would now contain a reasonable amount of classic metal as it was after I made this list I made some effort to look into it
