The Five Points of the Pentagram, Point 5: Heavy/Power Metal

Last Updated: July 28 2014

A collection of my favorite NWOBHM, Prog/Avant-Garde, Power and good ol' traditional heavy metal. As a result, this list has a wide variety of sounds but hey, pentagrams only have 5 points so whatevs. One album per band and in no particular order other than alphabetical. List will be updated semi-regularly with new shit so remember to stop by every so often!

1. Accept - Restless And Wild
2. Aleph - Seven Steps Of Stone
3. Alkemyst - Through Painful Lanes
4. Almah - Fragile Equality
5. Anciients - Heart Of Oak

The Epics (Because I Don't Think Pyramid God Is Coming Back)

My version of The Epics (Best Songs Over 10 Minutes) only this time it's more The Epics (Songs Over 10 Minutes) because we kept griping to PG and he wouldn't update his list. According to his profile he hasn't been on in... 371 days. So I thought "Hey, why not do it myself?"
Arranged by time. If you feel or know a song should be on here, let me know. I'm a mainstream fag, so I only listen to the popular stuff. I might have missed some bands.

1. Be'lakor - Stone's Reach
2. Kalisia - Cybion
3. Sun Of The Blind - Skullreader
4. Nile - Ithyphallic
5. Nightwish - Once

*The List I'll Never Finish (Top 20 Albums)*

I just finished making this list and I hate it already. Trying to put your favorite albums in order is very hard. I went at thinking which 20 would I take with me to a deserted island so I went for some variety. However, I don't think I got it right so expect the list to change frequently but for now this is roughly accurate. **Last Update 09/03/11**

1. Septicflesh - Communion
2. Symphony X - V: The New Mythology Suite
3. Septicflesh - The Great Mass
4. Symphony X - The Divine Wings Of Tragedy
5. Ghost Brigade - Isolation Songs

*The Epics (Best Songs Over 10 Minutes)*

This is a list of the top songs over 10 minutes long in my humble opinion. I had to resist the urge not to put every single Symphony X, Opeth and Agalloch song over 10 minutes long on the list so some of equally high quality are left off to increase diversity. Songs are sorted by approximate preference with #1 inspiring the list. I love long songs so if you know a good one please send me a message and I'll give it a listen. **Last Update 09/03/2011**

1. Green Carnation - Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness
2. Gorod - Transcendence
3. Symphony X - The Odyssey
4. Opeth - Ghost Reveries
5. Symphony X - V: The New Mythology Suite
