Top (and/or unduly passed-over) Power Metal (?)

With the express exclusion of Na, Mg, K, Ca, Cr, Fe, Cu, W, Hg, etc.

EP, full-length albums, & single song picks from a Guy Who's Not Really into PM... Yeah, I should have put up Viron's cover art as the image but that Dokken single (theme song of Nightmare on Elm Street movie #3) just looks far more interesting. Whether or not that was a PM addition to a Hollywood soundtrack may be a point of relevance, but to me it's immaterial. Go listen to the music!

1. Eidolon - Nightmare World
2. Tad Morose - Modus Vivendi
3. Brainstorm - Soul Temptation
4. Blind Guardian - A Night at the Opera
5. Nightwish - Wishmaster

A List Of Great Debut Albums

A lot of bands have great debut albums. Obviously this list is just a fraction of all the great debut albums out there, but it's a start. I'll keep expanding this list continuously, so all suggestions are welcome (granted they are featured on MS). All the albums here are ranked according to genre and then alphabetically. If a certain album belongs to the (in your opinion) wrong genre, then definitely let me know.

1. [Avantgarde]
2. Aarni - Bathos
3. Arcturus - Aspera Hiems Symfonia
4. Diablo Swing Orchestra - The Butcher's Ballroom
5. Sadness - Ames De Marbre

The 10 Best Cave-Aged Cheese Fantasy Metal Albums

Fantasy metal is pretty much self-satirizing. That said, the more cheese the better. These are 10 of my favorite albums in the genre. Not sure they are all technically fantasy metal, but if they make me want to suit up and go questing for stuff, then they count.

1. Rhapsody Of Fire - Symphony Of Enchanted Lands
2. Iron Fire - Thunderstorm
3. Fairyland - Of Wars In Osyrhia
4. Blind Guardian - At The Edge Of Time
5. Bal-Sagoth - The Power Cosmic

Worst Fucking Bands EVER

I know I will be fucking ripped apart for this list (more than likely), but this is my opinion
of who I think the worst fucking "metal" bands are (most of these bands have not done
anything to deserve the title of being metal).

1. Korn
2. Slipknot
3. Rage Against the Machine
4. Bullet for my Valentine
5. Hatebreed

A Collector's Journey - SIGH

This list is a fun little project for me. It chronicles my quest to collect the works of my favorite band of all time, the mighty Sigh! I've tried to list the albums in the order that I collected them, although my memory may be off a bit it is basically correct. Before Sigh I had never really ran into the problem of an album I wanted to buy being out of print and hard to find. Scouring the internet for these rare treasures has turned into a fun (albeit expensive) hobby of mine. Every time I get some new Sigh loot I'll update this list. Still missing the demo tapes and early EPs, however the main part of the collection is near completion. I'd like to see other similar lists to see what other MSers are collecting.

1. Sigh - In Somniphobia
2. Sigh - Imaginary Sonicscape
3. Sigh - Scenes From Hell
4. Sigh - Gallows Gallery [re-edit]
5. Sigh - Hail Horror Hail
