Symphonic Metal Done Differently

Nightwish, Dimmu Borgir, Septicflesh and their respective clones are not welcome here. The title is a bit misleading since none of these albums are 'symphonic metal' per se, but they're metal with symphonic/orchestra elements added in a way that's unconventional, or at least as far as I know. Suggestions welcome.

1. Apocalyptica - Plays Metallica By Four Cellos
2. Aquilus - Griseus
3. Blind Guardian - At the Edge of Time
4. Blood Thirsty - Sanguine River Absolution
5. Igorrr - Hallelujah

Bibliophilia: Metal For Bookworms

A list for us bookworms, nerds, geeks, etc. Books are brutal and totally fucking metal.
This list lists books, poems, comic books, non-fiction and even movie adaptions of said books in some cases referenced to in albums (whether by concept, individual song or title).
This list is old. I started this way before The Epics, but never finished it. It's obviously not finished, so feel free to request. Initially, I was decided whether I should include songs based on stories from the Bible, but I'm leaning towards it. So expect that in a bit.

1. Ahab - The Call Of The Wretched Sea
2. Anthrax - Among The Living
3. Anthrax - State Of Euphoria
4. Avenged Sevenfold - City Of Evil
5. Blind Guardian - Somewhere Far Beyond

1. Rhapsody Of Fire - Symphony Of Enchanted Lands
2. Iron Fire - Thunderstorm
3. Fairyland - Of Wars In Osyrhia
4. Blind Guardian - At The Edge Of Time

Best Power Metal Albums

in MY OPINION, these are the bands and albums i just cannot stop listening to, the 1st 10 albums are the best ones (based on how many times i listened to the album) after the 1st 10, no specific order. If you have any suggestions let me know, chances are i've never listened to the album. Also I have requirements concerning the lyrics, so if i dont update the list with your suggestion is bc i might not like the music or the lyrics. Long Live Multi-Colored Flower Metal!!!

1. Luca Turilli's Rhapsody - Ascending To Infinity
2. Dark Moor - Tarot
3. Luca Turilli - Prophet Of The Last Eclipse
4. Rhapsody Of Fire - Dawn Of Victory
5. Theocracy - As The World Bleeds

Delusions Of Silence - Top 10 Of 2010

Just a list of my personal top albums for the year 2010. When I look at it now, I would change a few things, since probably when the hype dropped, I don't actually prefer some albums as much as I did back then, (I would probably drop down/out Firewind and Agalloch) but I'm not gonna change it, it was written back then and " Everything Remains As It Never Was".

1. Blind Guardian - At the Edge of Time
2. Dark Tranquillity - We Are the Void
3. Equilibrium - ReKreatur
4. Firewind - Days of Defiance
5. Helloween - 7 Sinners
