Yeah, that's a pretty cool list, but I think there is a bit too much Opeth , Megadeth's Cryptic Writings? Also why debuts by Acturus, Symphony X, and Nevermore? For Deep Purple I would choose Burn and Machine Head, but I have not listened to Perfect Strangers.

I'd say Diablo Swing Orchestra missing with their debut. A pretty important release for the modern scene if you ask me, but I see this list is focused more on the classics. Plus, death metal is almost not represented; neither is black, but that's your taste I see.

Nice to see Jason Becker, Psychotic Waltz, Coroner, Anacrusis, and Watchtower.

You make me ashamed of being a Bulgarian.

Actually, not too bad, and I'm pretty happy to see Opeth pushed deep back, but the ranking is questionable, yes.

Also you have Manowar in the top ten, thus losing all credibility.

Thanks for opinion

Cryptic Writings : performance - full 10, songwriting - 9

'The Divine Wings Of Tragedy' isn't debut.

Machine Head and Burn - pure hard rock.

The Butcher's Ballroom ... very good and interesting album - perfect sound, good arrangements, amazing voice ... but too much MUSE (in the vocal lines) influences.

Yeah, true, I should not really speak of Symphony X; I don't know them all that well. But Cryptic Writings... while it's not a bad album, I would not include it into any kind of TOP lists.

I think Machine Head and Burn are quite heavy. Don't know about how much more heavy metal the ones you picked are.

I don"t think Death"s last album deserves a place in the list, due to not being that original. It is the last Death album, nothing else
Seven Churches by Possessed would rather deserve a spot in the list
also, what does Metallica"s selftitled have to do in that list? it isn"t original and completely fails in the songwriting
you should have rather given a spot to Fear Factory (maybe Demanufacture) and Meshuggah (maybe Chaosphere)

yes, it is well performed and well written, but it is simply another Death album. They are all good, that doesn"t make the last one special

Why ?

Because usually it means you're giving points to something by virtue of it being released before something else.

I just think it's unfair to hold it against new bands for not being formed early enough (or in the case of the musicians, born early enough) to create what would later be described as revolutionary. If a new death metal band outperforms Autopsy/Morbid Angel/etc. then that album should be held above the "classics" because you think it's better for what it is.

The Old band's Art is primitive art, but of such a kind that it cannot be surpassed by any later art, precisely because it is not form but SPIRIT. As we find it hard to part from the first spring days and pass into the season of full unfolding and ripening, so we tear ourselves almost regretfully away from this 'primitive' art, with its buds full of the coming wealth of IDEAS and forms, in order to see what ultimately became of it. In art, as in everything else, is not all unfolding and ripening a kind of withering, since in the full bloom we no longer have truth and reality appealing to us with that mysterious directness that is more magically eloquent than even perfection itself ?

Again, in my opinion, the problem with that is that you're judging those in full bloom for being in full bloom. This is the same as saying old people are better than young people simply because they've been around longer. I prefer a meritocracy in life, and that's evidently not a mutual preference.

There are very few such bands. Actually I like only Jon Oliva's Pain, Riverside, Augury and Sinergy.

Haha, that's like saying "compose your own Metal album and upload it here, instead of writing a review of an album". :lol:

for that list i"d also recommend you to add some Carnival in Coal, especially Sramik and Fear Not
An maybe Az I Dahak by Black Funeral also qualifies, but i"m not sure how avant garde it is

This is ambient black metal ... but American. In my opinion, the genuine black metal is Scandinavian

Why do people have this preconception that American black metal is automatically inferior to European black metal ? It comes off as incredibly elitist.

The Old Scandinavian black metal is primitive music, but of such a kind that it cannot be surpassed by any foreign (American, French, Italian, … ) black metal, precisely because it is not form but spirit - NORTHERN Spirit …
