After Five Years Of Metal: My Top 20 Favorite Albums

The end of 2013 marks the end of the fifth year of my journey into metal. I had listened to a select few songs prior to that, but around five years ago, I started to delve into the genre and I've discovered a lot of great music as a result. Much of my success I owe to Metalstorm for providing such an excellent platform. I want to express my sincere thanks to everyone who keeps this site running. I mostly enjoy the more melodic genres of metal, so don't expect a lot of extreme stuff. Also, please keep in mind that the following list is not a list of what I consider to be the best metal albums of all time or anything like it. It is simply a collection or a countdown of the albums that I have enjoyed the most during my journey so far.

1. Kamelot - The Black Halo
2. Rush - Hemispheres
3. Blind Guardian - Imaginations From The Other Side
4. Crimson Glory - Transcendence
5. Immortal - At The Heart of Winter

Evolution: Sailing The Seas Of Prog

Recently, instead of scouring too much the albums of the year I'm in, I decided to take a deeper journey and appreciate progressive music (prog metal/rock). While I'm still in the early beginnings of my journey, I decided to make a list to the albums I fully listen to so that I can keep charting my voyage in these vast seas. Some albums are not yet added because I need to listen them well and grab my favorites out, and some bands are on queue. I'm also eager to hear some recommendations, so thanks in advance for them!

1. Ayreon - The Human Equation
2. Barren Earth - The Devil's Resolve
3. Blotted Science - The Machinations of Dementia
4. Control Denied - The Fragile Art of Existence
5. Dream Theater - A Change Of Seasons [EP]

2. Genesis - Trespass
3. Genesis - Nursery Cryme
4. Genesis - Foxtrot
5. Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon
