I Like Big Hits And I Can Not Lie (Part II: 21st Century)

Stuff that got me hooked in the course of the years, from my very first blurred memories as a toddler to the present day.
Lots of catchy tunes, some cheese, very few flowers.
Songs that had a big impact on me and influenced my taste in music.
Stuff to let it all hang out, songs for campfire sing-alongs and soundtracks to slit your wrists.

1. Alastis - Unity
2. Diablerie - Seraphyde
3. Dimmu Borgir - Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia
4. Emperor - Prometheus: The Discipline Of Fire And Demise
5. Hollenthon - With Vilest Of Worms To Dwell

Sibling Albums

So like albums that have a clear tie between them, were recorded around about the same time and were clearly intended together, as opposed to a sequel coming years after. Some of these have actually been released together, as can be seen here.

That's about all I can think of right now. So feel free to think of some more for me.

1. Opeth - Deliverance
2. Opeth - Damnation
3. Metallica - Load
4. Metallica - Re-Load
5. Helloween - Keeper Of The Seven Keys Part I

That Cold Black Magic, By Glenn Killer And His Thorchestra

As is the case with my other lists, this is for my own organizational purposes and is designed purely to help me keep track of all the many black metal bands and albums that I enjoy, since I can't keep all of this information in my head. It has no other benefit whatsoever and will likely result in tantrums should anyone else see it. I'm aware that I haven't listened to every black metal album that I should have. I only went down to the 6s on this list, so it's possible that I have listened to your favorite black metal album that you desperately need to suggest and I thought it was terrible. There are a lot of heinously incompetent black metal bands out there.

1. Sigh - Imaginary Sonicscape
2. Sigh - Graveward
3. Dissection - Storm Of The Light's Bane
4. Mayhem - De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas
5. Sigh - Heir To Despair
