150 Albums To Become An Adult To: 2010-2019

I began this decade in my final year of high school, in the early phases of my metal journey (Mastodon, Machine Head, Dream Theater, Pantera and Avenged Sevenfold were still recent discoveries). One Masters degree and one PhD later, I'm now a tax-paying Londonian, and have ploughed through what must be comfortably over 2000 new releases during the previous ten years. To commemorate the end of a turbulent decade, I've put together a list of the albums that have stuck with me throughout this decade - I wouldn't consider this to be a 'best albums' list, as there have been some truly ingenious works released in more avant-garde territories, but ultimately these are the albums that have ended up dominating my listening habits, or otherwise making a sufficient impression to make this list.

1.Sylosis - Monolith
2.Sylosis - Edge Of The Earth
3.Amorphis - Under The Red Cloud
4.Be'lakor - Of Breath And Bone
5.Cult Of Luna - Vertikal

Karlabos' 2017 Top 100

If you were ever following my 2017 list in the beginning of the year and are wondering what happened to that one: well, basically MS deleted it itself. More like half of it. When I was in the mark of 120 albums or so and were updating the stuff, that bug which sometimes happens where some of the albums get cut from the preview happened... And I didn't see it. And I clicked on the submit button... So in the end only the first 50 albums of my original list were now showing and THE REST GOT ALL FUCKING DELETED, so yeah... I got pissed. And deleted the whole thing.

2.AdyS - Pretending
3.Ame To Kanmuri - Nou
4.Ayame - Lumiere Ambree
5.Bathsheba - Servus

2017-mz's Favorites

The best albums of 2017. Each section is almost in order now. I have tried to group the albums aesthetically, with the first group being the most diverse , focusing on the free-floating drone/ ambient, noise and psychedelic stuff that. The reason is that I get strong ASMR from those things. And yes, ASMR is real.

2.10 000 Russos - Distress Distress
3.777Babalon - Eschatological Beast Of The Revelation
4.Ehnahre - The Marrow
5.Twinesuns - The Empire Never Ended

That Cold Black Magic, By Glenn Killer And His Thorchestra

As is the case with my other lists, this is for my own organizational purposes and is designed purely to help me keep track of all the many black metal bands and albums that I enjoy, since I can't keep all of this information in my head. It has no other benefit whatsoever and will likely result in tantrums should anyone else see it. I'm aware that I haven't listened to every black metal album that I should have. I only went down to the 6s on this list, so it's possible that I have listened to your favorite black metal album that you desperately need to suggest and I thought it was terrible. There are a lot of heinously incompetent black metal bands out there.

1.Sigh - Imaginary Sonicscape
2.Sigh - Graveward
3.Dissection - Storm Of The Light's Bane
4.Sigh - Heir To Despair
5.The Meads Of Asphodel - The Murder Of Jesus The Jew
