Top 20 Power Metal Albums Of The 90's

My favourite Power Metal albums of the 90's. A couple of bands in particular dominate the list and it was tough deciding which Gamma Ray and Blind Guardian albums of the 90's were the best as I think they are all fantastic albums. Couldn't find room for the likes of Demons & Wizards, Edguy and Angra. I also left Grave Digger off of the list as they are listed as Heavy Metal on the site. Following the genres listed on the site I also had no Virgin Steele on the list. Perhaps that is fortunate for the other bands as the top of the list would have been dominated with Virgin Steele albums!

1. Gamma Ray - Power Plant
2. Blind Guardian - Nightfall In Middle-Earth
3. Blind Guardian - Imaginations From The Other Side
4. Gamma Ray - Land Of The Free
5. Gamma Ray - Somewhere Out In Space

The Painters Of Metal

Album art is a crucial element to what makes a great album become monumental to the music fan. It gives us a vision and a feeling through visual sensations that are linked in the mind to the sounds that embody those ideas. A great album is intertwined into those concrete images and the two aspects make them whole. The following is a list of albums by some of the most influential, well known illustrators in the Arts Community. These artists are key figures in relation to how famous their art has become either by the success of the bands they worked for or the popularity of their own work.

1. Electric Wizard - Electric Wizard
2. Darkthrone - F.O.A.D.
3. Cradle Of Filth - Midian
4. Converge - Jane Doe
5. Blind Guardian - Nightfall In Middle-Earth

Fave Metal Albums/EPs 1991 -2000

Period 1991-2000 is perhaps one of the most understated periods of metal because of the decline of commercial metal and the emergence of grunge and then nu-metal.

But the period saw release of some kick arse releases. In fact for yours truly it was a major milestone in metal (does help I got into metal around 1992). These are my favourite albums/EPs from the period.

1. Alice In Chains - Dirt
2. Alice In Chains - Jar Of Flies
3. Anthrax - Sound Of White Noise
4. Arch Enemy - Stigmata
5. Blaze Bayley - Silicon Messiah

Top 40 Albums That Blow My Poseur Mind

To walk the path of the metal poseur is to pick the plumpest of mainstream fruits and succour the sweet secretions contained within. It is the art of walking with giants of mainstream underground extremism whilst maintaining one foot firmly on the part of pop monumentalism.

The path is dangerous for the faux fur of metal consumerism is a tempting demon whore that claws at the inner self of underground triumphalism. These are the eagles that soar through the mind galleries of every metal poseur, no matter how compartmentalised their singularity may be.

1. Alice In Chains - Dirt
2. Anthrax - Volume 8 - The Threat Is Real
3. Artillery - By Inheritance
4. Blind Guardian - Imaginations From The Other Side
5. Blind Guardian - Nightfall In Middle-Earth

SAY WHAAAAT? Apothecary's Favorites That May Surprise You

The idea for this list was given to me by mz when I expressed that I was more excited about Blut Aus Nord's upcoming Memoria Vetusta III than their Debemur MoRTi EP. As he said: "You are known as a person with intense love for experimental/avantgarde black metal and everyone by default expects you to love a MoRT-like album more that what is probably going to be a not-so-original-melodic black metal album." While I do prefer experimental metal, and tend to lean more towards black and doom, there are plenty of more orthodox and classic releases outside of these confines that I love as well, some of which are true guilty pleasure albums. I decided to throw in some non-MS albums as well, to show that my tastes definitely aren't limited to metal. In no particular order, we have...

1. Pantera - Vulgar Display Of Power
2. Marilyn Manson - Portrait Of An American Family
3. White Zombie - Astro Creep: 2000 - Songs Of Love, Destruction And Other Synthetic Delusions Of The Electric Head
4. Strapping Young Lad - Alien
5. Testament - The Ritual

Favourite Album By Year

Well here's a challenge - my favourite albums for each year since 1980. A challenge because in some instances there's too many awesome albums to pick from and in other years not many stand outs.

In the end the list turns out to not be a list of overall favourites as some years featured more than one awesome album.

1. Carcass - Surgical Steel
2. Accept - Stalingrad
3. Anthrax - Worship Music
4. Overkill - Ironbound
5. Megadeth - Endgame
