2000-2014: A 'Factored' Top 100

Take a look at the Top Album lists of recent years and you'll notice an obvious trend. In 2005 the average rating of the top 25 albums is 8.76. Jump to 2014 and the average among the top 25 has dropped to 8.26. An almost linear decrease is observable for the 10 years in between.

I was curious to see what a Top 100 for 2000-2014 would look like if I factored the votes to account for the 'rating decline'. I hope you find it interesting.

1. Agalloch - The Mantle
2. Opeth - Blackwater Park
3. Blindead - Affliction XXIX II MXMVI
4. Aquilus - Griseus
5. Nevermore - Dead Heart In A Dead World

Brimbly-Brambly Bucka-Bucka Woozle-Wuzzle It's A Doom List.

I find it difficult to keep track of all the doom bands and albums that I enjoy, and they are beginning to pile up. To combat the situation, I've devised this list of quality doom releases for quick reference. It's not in a very specific order, but there is a general sense that one could be imposed upon it. The first few are definitely my favorites, but after that point it degenerates into a general collection of albums that I like.

1. Black Sabbath - Paranoid
2. Warning - Watching From A Distance
3. Woods Of Ypres - Woods 5: Grey Skies & Electric Light
4. Hamferð - Evst
5. Hamferð - Vilst Er Síðsta Fet

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

I'll explain the reasons behind my selection, a few words for each album.

1. Woods Of Ypres - Woods 5: Grey Skies & Electric Light
2. Wintersun - Time I
3. Kamelot - Silverthorn
4. Swallow The Sun - Emerald Forest And The Blackbird
5. Sabaton - Carolus Rex
