And once again we have very different tops, the only album I'd have in common with you would be the Arcturus one.
My own list would have (among other releases) Ulver's Nattens Madrigal, Sigh's Hail Horror Hail, Symphony X's Divine Wings Of Tragedy and Molested's Stormvold.

Really? Not even the Emperor or Stratovarius ones? Thought they were pretty much universal.
Ulver has been on my listen to pile for like a decade now lol, eventually I swear I’ll finally get to their BM albums. Thanks for the recommendations.

I don't really care about Emperor, and I've never listened to Stratovarius since I don't really like power metal all that much

Enter the Moonlight Gate by Lord Belial
Darkside by Necrophobic
Those are top choices for me.

Anthems to the Welkin At Dusk is kind of growing on me. The only song I know from Stratovarius is "Black Diamond", and I liked it. Maybe I need to check out the rest of that Visions album?

Also, Dimmu Borgir and Destroyer 666 are on my to-do list

Yes those are two I really need to listen to, they definitely sound like my thing.

Growing on you? What an endorsement...
Visions isn’t my favourite Stratovarius album of the ones I have heard but it does seem to be everyone else’s and I do think it’s really good. Definitely worth a listen.

Deströyer 666 are my city’s pride, Unchain The Wolves and Phoenix Rising are especially awesome, check them out. The latter is a bit more polished.
