Land Of Metal And Heavy: Portland

Do you know this feeling when you stumble across a random word, and then suddenly that name pops up just about everywhere? That specific term haunting yours truly has long been "Portland, Oregon". It seems to me that every new discovery was founded in Portland, apparently every other album was mastered at Brad Boatright's Audiosiege Studio in Portland, and every single of my favorite bands had, at some point, performed on a stage somewhere in Portland.

1. Abhorrent Affliction - Forever Will He Reign
2. Acathexis - Acathexis
3. Ænigmatum - Deconsecrate
4. Ævangelist - Dream An Evil Dream III
5. Agalloch - The Serpent & The Sphere

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

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. !T.O.O.H.! - Order And Punishment (Řád A Trest)
2. T.R.A.M. - Lingua Franca
3. Taake - ...Doedskvad
4. Tacoma Narrows Bridge Disaster - Exegesis
5. Tad Morose - Modus Vivendi

Me(tal) In The 2010s

Descriptions will probably be added/edited a few times as I always write this stuff pretty quickly and sometimes can't find the right words to describe somehting so abstract as music. A lot of my taste just boils down to "sounds interesting" or "catchy". So yeah. Most of this will have overlaps with other lists I made because I have very narrow taste.

1. Gnaw Their Tongues - L'arrivée De La Terne Mort Triomphante
2. Murmuüre - Murmuüre
3. The Meads of Asphodel - The Murder Of Jesus The Jew

You Know It's Technically 2011-2020, Right?

To explain the title, there is no year 0, regardless of what Ghost may tell you. Thus, the first decade was years 1-10, instead of 0-9. So then it would be 11-20, and so on. But I know that would imply that Paranoid is a 60s album, which we cannot have.

So now that all the cool kids are doing it, here is my top 100 albums of the "decade", most of it might be a bit too mainsteam, most of it you'll find on others' lists, and so on. Restricted to one album per artist/band (including collabs), ordered alphabetically.

1. Abyssal - Antikatastaseis
2. Agalloch - The Serpent & The Sphere
3. Akhlys - The Dreaming I
4. Alcest - Écailles De Lune
5. Altar Of Plagues - Teethed Glory & Injury

My Favourites And Why I Like Them

I always admired people who do really cool lists. But since I don't know anything, I can't really make a good one. So here's the babby-boy of lists, just to get my juices flowing. In the sexual way of course.

Will be updated and expanded upon as I have time and see fit. The goal is to get my top 50 maybe, but there's a long road ahead of that.

1. Neurosis - Souls At Zero
2. Neurosis - Times Of Grace
3. Terra Tenebrosa - The Tunnels
