Great Debut Albums Throughout The Years

This is a list of bands that in my opinion have great debut albums.
I'm sure there are some years that will have more than one great debuts but I'm limiting to only putting one band per year.
The one that I put in the list is in my opinion the best debut album of that year.
Other than that I will put in the honorable mention below the list.

1. 1970-1979
2. Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
3. 1980-1989
4. Iron Maiden - Iron Maiden
5. Venom - Welcome To Hell

Ten Years Listening To Metal: A List

Well... it's been a hell of a ride. The truth is: i can't leave metal, and i can't live without it.
Many albums and bands have passed through my ears since 2004 and the first time i listened to a metal recording. I've been drifting from genre to genre with time, and i've always found something interesting that keeps my head moving. Now, i gather the best of those pieces that blew my mind in some moment. Many are standards, but some aren't.

1. Amon Amarth - With Oden On Our Side
2. At The Gates - Slaughter Of The Soul
3. Atheist - Unquestionable Presence
4. Ayreon - Into The Electric Castle
5. Black Sabbath - Master Of Reality

The Best "(Melodic) Death Doom" Albums

Here's a list that contains only Death Doom and Melodic Death Doom Metal albums, so Gothic (check out my other list for that), Funeral or Sludge Doom etc. are NOT included here (but elements from those subgenres might be present in some of the albums on this list). The reason I made this list is because "death doom" is easily my all-time favourite subgenre of music in general. Also, there's not a single similar list on MS to be found (at least to my knowing), hence why I feel people who are into this subgenre can use this list to find out more great music. The list is ordened to my own preference and all these albums are worth at least an 8/10 (the alphabetically ranked albums on the bottom of the list will eventually be ranked among the others, but I haven't listened enough to those to do so). The styles (pure/melodic/atmospheric death doom metal) of the ranked albums are also added so it's easier for people to find what they're looking for. I only add 1 album per band for the sake of variety as well as for keeping the list comprehensible. Lastly, give me suggestions so I can check 'em out and add them to the list (only albums that are featured on MS).

1. Katatonia - Brave Murder Day
2. My Dying Bride - Turn Loose The Swans
3. Saturnus - Paradise Belongs To You
4. Desire - Locus Horrendus - The Night Cries Of A Sullen Soul...
5. Disembowelment - Transcendence Into The Peripheral

InnerDoom

The wide spectrum of sounds expressed through the sub-genre of Doom Metal often gets shadowed by the somehow inaccessible slowness that is in its nature and so DM doesn't get the recognition it deserves for being, in my opinion, one of the most flexible sub-genre of Metal ... for that, Doom Metal has stayed among my favorite genres of music since the time I was introduced to it through My Dying Bride's "Turn Loose the Swans".

1. Esoteric - The Maniacal Vale
2. Saturnus - Martyre
3. Lacrimas Profundere - Memorandum
4. My Dying Bride - Turn Loose The Swans
5. Process Of Guilt - Erosion

My Favourite Albums Of All Time, Vastly Melodic.

These are my favourite albums of all time, the best being first. This is obviously all my own opinion, so please don't shit all over my musical tastes, especially since I am a fan of melodic music, which a lot of people don't seem to like anymore. All these albums have touched me in one way or another and they are all albums I can listen to again and again without ever getting bored.

1. Iron Maiden - Brave New World
2. Katatonia - Night Is The New Day
3. Sentenced - The Cold White Light
4. Wintersun - Time I
5. Omnium Gatherum - Beyond
