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

Last Updated: August 26 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

2011: Favourite To Least

Purely subjective list based on personal preferences for the year, unrelated to mass opinion of an album or a band's abilities (e.g. Trivium, Oranssi Pazuzu) - many albums lined up to listen to so will increase in size. Also, not entirely in order, middle order mainly just an approximation.

1. Sylosis - Edge Of The Earth
2. Protest The Hero - Scurrilous
3. Infestus - E x I s t
4. Amorphis - The Beginning Of Times
5. Ouroboros - Glorification Of A Myth

The Current Decade: 2010-2019: My Opinion: The Truth: Reality

*The title is a joke, of course

The Current Decade (2010-2019) in order of preference. This is separate from my year-lists, which strive to include as many albums from the year as possible regardless of quality. Only albums I deem worthy of a favorites list by personal taste will make it. I'd say Axioma Ethica Odini has a major step up on anything beneath it this decade; it's the only truly perfect album so far in my eyes. Last overhauled: May 13th. Now it's a bit tighter.

1. Enslaved - Axioma Ethica Odini
2. Septicflesh - The Great Mass
3. 40 Watt Sun - The Inside Room
4. Antichrist - Forbidden World
5. Agalloch - Marrow of the Spirit
