Diverge's Alternative/Prog/Jazz/Avant-Garde Favs

LATEST EDIT: March 27/2016- Added a whole bunch of progressive rock albums; processing earlier suggestions on the list.

Assembled below are some choice selections in alternative metal, prog rock, prog metal, jazz and avant-garde metal. I don't necessarily consider these styles to be my favourite (I do have a penchant for post-metal and cavernous death metal these days), but they have been the foundations of my taste for the last seven or eight years.

2. Soundgarden - Down On The Upside
3. Rishloo - Living As Ghosts With Buildings As Teeth
4. Karnivool - Asymmetry
5. Blindead - Absence

100 Greatest Metal Bands

Pretty self-explanatory, with a couple caveats: first, this is mostly just a list of my favorite metal bands in approximate order (after the top 10 or so the order matters far less), with extra weight given to influence and timelessness of sound; and second, the albums selected are not necessarily the band's "best" album, or even my personal favorite -- they are the albums that I feel best represent the band's classic sound and/or well-represent the span of their career. List includes all sub-genres of metal and some post-metal metal. Feel free to spew your hatred below. \m/ (xx) \m/

1. Black Sabbath - Paranoid
2. Iron Maiden - Powerslave
3. Metallica - Master Of Puppets
4. Judas Priest - Screaming For Vengeance
5. Slayer - Reign In Blood

The Objectively Factual List Of Genuinely The Best Thrash Metal Albums Ever

I'm bored, so I'm doing this. My technique involves going to the page of every thrash band I've listened to, pulling out their top three albums that I'd rate over 8.5/10 (if there are three) and placing them in the list.

1. Megadeth - Rust in Peace
2. Coroner - No More Color
3. Coroner - Mental Vortex
4. Toxik - Think This
5. Slayer - Reign in Blood
