Artwork: Progressive Metal Albums

This is a list of progressive 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 30.01.2023)

1. Amorphis - Under The Red Cloud
2. Deadsoul Tribe - The January Tree
3. Death - Symbolic
4. Disillusion - Ayam
5. Dordeduh - Har

Top Metal Albums Of All Time

I started listening to metal music when I was a teenager, somewhere around the end of the 90's. After all these years, I thought it was high time to compose my personal top list of metal albums. What you see here is the absolute best of the best ... according to my taste.

To compile this list I have put all albums that I have given a 10/10 here on MS. Then I have put all these albums in a Ranking Engine ( where they were put head to head and I had to choose which I liked more. The list below is what came out of this exercise.

1. Opeth - Deliverance
2. Opeth - Blackwater Park
3. Edge Of Sanity - Crimson
4. Edge Of Sanity - Purgatory Afterglow
5. Cobalt - Eater of Birds

1. Therion - Theli
2. Katatonia - Brave Murder Day

Park Metal

Music I listen to in an English-styled park in Warsaw, where nature grew in such a way that a controlled wilderness was achieved. Some songs match certain seasons better than others! This music goes well with the wonderful fantasy-themed imagination I've been gifted through my autism.

1. Agalloch - The Mantle
2. Opeth - Blackwater Park
3. Moonsorrow - Kivenkantaja
4. Wintersun - Wintersun
5. Summoning - Stronghold

Death Is Only The Beginning (Of This List)

This is a list of all the death metal albums I have listened to that I thought were at all worth remembering. Like my other genre lists, this is just a record of my own listening experience that I use for personal organization, not a definitive account of the best or all of the death metal out there; there will probably be albums or bands that are not death metal in the strictest sense. You'll find some OSDM, melodeath, tech death, death-doom, maybe a bit of deathcore, I don't know. Maybe some non-death metal albums by death metal bands that I put in here just because.

1. Death - The Sound Of Perseverance
2. Death - Symbolic
3. At The Gates - With Fear I Kiss The Burning Darkness
4. At The Gates - Slaughter Of The Soul
5. Amon Amarth - With Oden On Our Side
