Best Album From Each Year

Unfinished as I still have to catch up on more recent years. Also all of the places on the list are of course subject to change as I discover more music from each year.

My taste is very much centred around the power of the riff. That means most of the albums on this list are thrash, death, heavy, black, or some offshoot of those genres.

1. Behemoth - The Satanist
2. Carcass - Surgical Steel
3. Cattle Decapitation - Monolith Of Inhumanity
4. Fleshgod Apocalypse - Agony
5. Immolation - Majesty And Decay

Black Metal For Beginners

Here is a list of bands I've been listening since I started listening more black metal this year. I've never been much into black metal but I've found a good number of more melodic and atmospheric bands. Some of the bands are more black metal and some less but the element is there. I've also listed my favorite album of the bands. Bands aren't in any particular order. My favorites are at the top but new bands will be added to the bottom of the list.

1. Summoning - Stronghold
2. Moonsorrow - Jumalten Aika
3. Windir - 1184
4. Zornheym - Where Hatred Dwells and Darkness Reigns
5. Obsidian Gate - The Nightspectral Voyage

100 Greatest Metal Bands

Pretty self-explanatory, with a couple caveats: first, this is mostly just a list of my favorite metal bands in approximate order (after the top 10 or so the order matters far less), with extra weight given to influence and timelessness of sound; and second, the albums selected are not necessarily the band's "best" album, or even my personal favorite -- they are the albums that I feel best represent the band's classic sound and/or well-represent the span of their career. List includes all sub-genres of metal and some post-metal metal. Feel free to spew your hatred below. \m/ (xx) \m/

1. Black Sabbath - Paranoid
2. Iron Maiden - Powerslave
3. Metallica - Master Of Puppets
4. Judas Priest - Screaming For Vengeance
5. Slayer - Reign In Blood
