My Favourite Albums of All Time


I've been listening to Metal since 2005 and it has become my biggest passion in life.

Rarely a day goes by where I don't listen to it in one form or another. The bands I listened to in my teens inspired me to pick up the guitar (and later drums) and start making music of my own.

Metal means everything to me and I would be lost without it. So here are the albums that have stood out and made the largest impact on me.

I originally created a big list of all my favourite albums, but I struggled with ordering them, so I have catorgorized the lists into different genre's, which was easier for me.
I have kept a big list for my favourite songs tho.

I originally had this list broken down into genres but decided to do overall and take the average of each album's song ratings using this sheet (feel free to copy).

Nice song list, I like a lot on there. I've given that a thumbs up in return.

that would be a long list as well and for now I do not have the time or patience to list them all, but if you check out my lists, (or the albums I've rated) you'd realize what I enjoy.

I will try to make a list as soon as time allows it.
