Zach's Picks: Extreme Progressive Metal

The music of progressive metal features complex, layered arrangements in longer than typical songs, often including lengthy instrumental passages allowing the performers to display technical proficiency and interplay. Many time signature changes are common, as is the incorporation of Western classical music influences. The sound is generally driven by the guitars and drums, but it is quite typical to add elements non-standard to rock or metal such as synthesizers and an array of orchestral elements.

1. Atheist - Unquestionable Presence
2. Cynic - Focus
3. Meshuggah - Destroy Erase Improve
4. Edge of Sanity - Crimson
5. Arcturus - Aspera Hiems Symfonia

CD collection ratings (0.5 fineness)

My album ratings, because Metalstorm's default album rating fineness of 1 does not satify me and because several albums are not featured here, partially due the fact not being metal or at least rock.

Ordered by rating, band, album release date

1. Árstíðir - Árstíðir
2. Echolyn - Mei
3. Gorguts - Colored Sands
4. Green Carnation - Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness
5. Moonlyght - Progressive Darkness

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
