Inspired my metal brother Iamawalker's list by the same name. The title says it all, I will only list studio albums and maybe a small reason why. (Bands are listed alphabetic)

Created by: Chriwalker | 30.06.2013

1. Alestorm - Back Through Time
These crazy guys just seem to get better every year! It was humorous and awesome in sound. Loved this album so bring a bottle of rum and scream hoy!
2. Avantasia - The Wicked Symphony
This might be the darkest and best written Avantasia album. Close call between all other albums really, I love everything about this album though and find it really undervalued and underrated!
3. Axxis - Utopia
This album has all from speed to power ballads and I loved it. these guys also seems to get better with the years!
4. Blind Guardian - Somewhere Far Beyond
Okey, I had no trouble to pick this album, yet The Edge of Time is a close call! BG has brought me lots of fun metal and I love most of their work!
5. Bruce Dickinson - Accident Of Birth
The album is epic, mystical, powerful, evil, dark. Bruce did amazing work on this!
6. Circus Maximus - Nine
At last I got into CM! Nine opened this door for me, and I have "Nine" to thank for that.
7. Dio - The Last In Line
What's to say? I love most of Dio, but man this album kills!
8. Edguy - Hellfire Club
The album has my favourite songs from Edguy and ha strong songs, and is fucking powerful. This is Edguy on its best!
9. Epica - Requiem For The Indifferent
Make no mistake, I have not listened all that much to Epica, but Simone does have a beautiful voice and the music on this album is freaking awesome!
10. HammerFall - Glory To The Brave
First and best album true! But it does not mean I dislike any of the other albums, I just find it really cheesy Heavy Metal and I honestly can't say I don't like it, I fucking love it!
11. Helloween - Gambling With The Devil
Deris is awesome in this, and it's the best mixed album, best songs, most powerful and pure power metal! How could this not be the best?
12. Iced Earth - Dystopia
Yes, I like the newest album better than the rest, Stu sings amazing as is a perfect fit for Iced Earth! I have struggled to get into IE but damn this album was awesome! Closest to this might be Horror Show!
13. Iron Maiden - A Matter Of Life And Death
I knew this was the best sounding Maiden album I'd heard the moment I first listened to it! The first impression was hard to knock back, and no Maiden album can reach AMOLAD atm! War and dark times makes a good album.
14. Jorn - Spirit Black
Jørn made a album perfectly for himself where he could really show off and show us what he is made of!
15. Judas Priest - Screaming For Vengeance
Real Heavy Metal and still better than a lot of bands and albums out there!
16. Kamelot - Epica
This is kind of the hardens pick of this list cause I can not think of one Kamelot album that's poor except the two first. But I believe Epica is the most epic concept album I've heard from any band!
17. Lost Horizon - A Flame To The Ground Beneath
Power metal on its best! And I have to comment on Heiman's singing, it's exceptional! His screams on "Lost in the depth of Me" and "Highlander" is to awesome to be described!
18. Nightwish - Dark Passion Play
Close call between this and Imaginearum. I know many of you will think this blasphemy but I don't like Tarja's voice. Anette does a good job in Nightwish!
19. Sabaton - Carolus Rex
Swedish metal sung on Swedish, need I say more? Lejonet skal hedras!
20. Seventh Wonder - Mercy Falls
More Swedish metal! This is a though choice, SW does not have a bad album to be honest! But I went for Mercy Falls because of the story, but "The Great Escape" is not far beyond!
21. Theocracy - As The World Bleeds
"I Am" made a huge impression, and I just love this album!
22. Within Temptation - The Unforgiving
Sharon sing beautifully, and I need to get around and listen to the rest some more!
23. Xandria - Neverworld's End
This is might be the best band with a female front I've heard! Manuela Kraller makes my skin crawl and my back freeze! Her voice is BEAUTIFUL and so is the music!
