2014: The Cold March Towards Eternal Brightness

Past fanaticism aside, this list endeavors to be a much more concise, less insane venture. I intend only to include albums I really like, which admittedly doesn't entail a great amount so far this year. So I'll start out small, and hopefully it will balloon out from there.

Ordered by preference, though always subject to change.

1. Spectral Lore - III
2. Anubis Gate - Horizons
3. Bloodway - Sunstone Voyager and the Clandestine Horizon
4. Prajna - The Summer Eclipse
5. Hail Spirit Noir - Oi Magoi

2012: Towards The Megalist

I'm (sorta) back. *The Finishing Touches* OKAY, so obviously not as much stuff from the last half of the year as the first. Sorry guys, but that first six months nearly killed me. Some stuff as a result will be missing, but major stuff not present is stuff I probably didn't care for. Alrighty then, enough with the "stuff"...

1. Bound by Entrails - The Stars Bode You Farewell
2. Royal Thunder - CVI
3. Akphaezya - Anthology IV: The Tragedy of Nerak
4. Dissona - Dissona
5. Anhedonist - Netherwards

The Current Decade: 2010-2019: My Opinion: The Truth: Reality

*The title is a joke, of course

The Current Decade (2010-2019) in order of preference. This is separate from my year-lists, which strive to include as many albums from the year as possible regardless of quality. Only albums I deem worthy of a favorites list by personal taste will make it. I'd say Axioma Ethica Odini has a major step up on anything beneath it this decade; it's the only truly perfect album so far in my eyes. Last overhauled: May 13th. Now it's a bit tighter.

1. Enslaved - Axioma Ethica Odini
2. Septicflesh - The Great Mass
3. 40 Watt Sun - The Inside Room
4. Antichrist - Forbidden World
5. Agalloch - Marrow of the Spirit

My 40 (Ever-Changing) Favorite Songs Ever

*Now remixed with some of my favorite non-metal tracks! In order by preference, although it's tough with songs... and who knows what I'm forgetting? I'm not claiming these are the downright best, just my personal favorites based on my own enjoyment of them. Song titles in parentheses. Will probably change a lot, except for the top ten, which is harder to break into.

1. Edge of Sanity - Crimson
2. Primordial - To the Nameless Dead
3. Artillery - By Inheritance
4. Agalloch - The Mantle
5. Theatre of Tragedy - Aégis

My Favorite 40 Metal Albums Ever (+5...)

Overhauled as of May 10th, 2012! Top 5 favorite non-metal albums featured at the bottom.

This is a much improved (and more recently accurate) reworking of my previous favorite albums list, with a few albums added and a couple dropped entirely. They are in order of preference, though changes and the possibility of total equals are still in play. I've axed my undescriptive commentary but kept my genre and favorite song catgories.

1. Crimson Glory - Transcendence
2. Anubis Gate - The Detached
3. Artillery - By Inheritance
4. Crimson Glory - Crimson Glory
5. Metal Church - Hanging In The Balance
