1. Adagio - Underworld
2. Akercocke - Words That Go Unspoken, Deeds That Go Undone

Metal Essentials: Albums You Should Have In Your Collection

I will try to be as subjective as I can and it won't include only my favorite genres as I will try to include albums from all Metal sub-genres because I think it's important to get exposed to all kinds of metal so that a person may create a good taste in Metal music. (Might include more than 1 album per band).

1. Deep Purple - Machine Head
2. Judas Priest - Stained Class
3. Scorpions - Taken By Force
4. Black Sabbath - Heaven And Hell
5. Iron Maiden - The Number Of The Beast

Metal-Gems: "Power Metal"

A list for power metal bands and albums, which are sadly overlooked by the majority, but are highly deserving much more attention. That means obviously that this is no place for the genres biggest and most well known acts, like Blind Guardian, Helloween, Sabaton or the likes.
This list is ever progressing, so feel free to suggest as many bands as they come up in your mind. I will check them out and then decide if they need to be included or not.
The only requirements: They should be quite well hidden in the metal world and not only be extraordinary good but also really something else (I obviously don't want to fill this list with a bunch of unknown, but average, generic and thousand times copied plastic power metal bands).
This list is ordered by my personal impressions.

1. Crom - Vengeance
2. Wuthering Heights - The Shadow Cabinet
3. Fairyland - Score To A New Beginning
4. Dol Ammad - Ocean Dynamics
5. Eldritch - El Niño

Favourite Album's Of The 00's

My favorite and most enjoyed album's of the decade 2000-2009. Roughly in order, but not exactly.

You can kinda tell from this list that I joined Metalstorm in 2009. I started discovering far more music thanks to this site, hence the number of '09 releases featured. I'm slowly starting to pick back through the top lists of previous years, so I expect more pre-'09 releases will be added to this list.

1. Opeth - Blackwater Park
2. Vektor - Black Future
3. Between the Buried and Me - The Great Misdirect
4. Sikth - Death of a Dead Day
5. Protest the Hero - Fortress
