Now this --for me-- is the best year metal has ever seen, by more than a margin. It was metal's 3rd peak year (after 1986 and 1990), and it was its last one. In my books I find 7 out of the 32 ten ratings, which I have given so far, alone in this year. In no other year I have so many ten ratings.

Back at the time this was the year I finally fell in love with death doom, some gothic and some doom metal. Beforehand I spent my first 3 years in metal mostly sticking to death, heavy, and thrash metal.
This is probably the reason why it is my favourite year for metal. Worshiping many subgenres at once, plus love at first sight.

My top releases from 1995 are (cutting it off at a lower 8 rating):

1. Anathema - The Silent Enigma
2. My Dying Bride - The Angel And The Dark River
3. Death - Symbolic
4. Dark Tranquillity - The Gallery
5. Iced Earth - Burnt Offerings
6. Opeth - Orchid
7. Moonspell - Wolfheart
8. Theatre Of Tragedy - Theatre Of Tragedy
9. Unanimated - Ancient God Of Evil
10. The Gathering - Mandylion
11. Gamma Ray - Land Of The Free
12. Blind Guardian - Imaginations From The Other Side
13. Beyond Belief - Rave The Abyss
14. Dissection - Storm Of The Light's Bane
15. The Elysian Fields - Adelain
16. Lake Of Tears - Headstones
17. Skyclad - The Silent Whales Of Lunar Sea
18. Paradise Lost - Draconian Times
19. Savatage - Dead Winter Dead
20. Celestial Season - Solar Lovers
21. Godgory - Sea Of Dreams
22. Shadow Gallery - Carved In Stone
23. Vomiturition - A Leftover
24. Rage - Black In Mind
