Evrope Ov Ólde

These songs make me think of times so old that none of us were there to experience them. The criteria for the inclusion of a song are so personal here that there's a high chance you think something should be on here and I might love the same song you're thinking of but I would still not put it on here.

I don't like Varg btw

1. Enslaved - Vikingligr Veldi
2. Burzum - Hvis Lyset Tar Oss
3. Satyricon - Dark Medieval Times
4. Windir - Arntor
5. Bathory - Hammerheart

Artwork: Folk Metal Albums

This is a list of (celtic/medieval/extreme) folk metal albums (in alphabetical order) based on their artwork. It includes iconic cover art from classic albums as well as fascinating work from more recent releases.
There is a saying that "you should not judge a book by its cover", which is of course also true in the case of music albums. However, the artwork can complement the production and give a visual introduction to the musical theme and atmosphere. More than for any other kind of music, this may be true for metal.

(Updated 19.02.2023)

1. Arkona - Гой, Роде, Гой!
2. Brymir - Voices In The Sky
3. Cnoc An Tursa - The Giants Of Auld
4. Eluveitie - Helvetios
5. Eluveitie - Slania

The Best Metal Albums* From A To # (M)

This list is meant to be an extensive, but by no means exhaustive, collection of the greatest (modern) metal albums and eps. Running the gamut from avant-garde to trve norweigan black metal. *As someone who is young in age, my tastes tend to revolve around the period of the 80s to the present.* Although certain metal albums from before will certainly be featured, the period of the 60s-70s will be under-represented. I refer you to this excellent list to gain a better appreciation for some of the best metal from that period:

1. Macabre - Murder Metal
2. Macabre Omen - Gods Of War - At War
3. Macbeth - Romantic Tragedy's Crescendo
4. Machinae Supremacy - Overworld
5. Machine Head - The Blackening

MY 20 All-Time Favorite Metal Albums

People, places, and things have entered my life and have faded away in countless different ways and with varying degrees of consequence. Yet Metal has remained faithfully at my side, eternally ready to provide me with what I need to face a given moment. Metal knows me better than I know myself, and whether a situation involves a fist to a face, a finger to authority, a knife in a back, a razor to a wrist, celebration, creation, destruction, love, hate, life or death, Metal stands ready as a light in the dark.

1. Ensiferum - Ensiferum
2. Ensiferum - Iron
3. Ozzy Osbourne - Ozzmosis
4. Suidakra - Caledonia
5. Amorphis - Queen of Time

1. Watain - Sworn To The Dark
2. Shining - V - Halmstad
3. Mayhem - Ordo Ad Chao
4. Månegarm - Vargstenen
5. Be'lakor - The Frail Tide
