23:59 - Netzach Czerny, I get your point but I'd say the same about "Ashes"... It just gets too droney and gaze-ish in sections. Limbs and Not Unlike the Waves are awesome though... The Mantle has this "whiskey fueled regret"-feel I adore
23:55 - Netzach Btw, AMA on Reddit with A.A Nemtheanga if anyone's interested [link]
23:51 - Czerny Reiter Ashes Against the Grain & Marrow take the cake for me. The Mantle has some sections where it loses steam and gets all too mellow.
23:45 - Overrwatcher The Mantle is beautiful. It's not technical or experimental, it's just a well-crafted album made with simple instruments. I show it to non-metalhead friends and they love it.
Nice and varied list, a lot of good not metal albums here but I think ( or Last.fm doess) "Atrium Carceri - Kapnobatai" was released in 2005. I do not want to be picky since I got familiar with that band after reading you suggested it somewhere in forums but its inclusion on this list might be misleading
Some cool stuff on there but I now udnerstand why our discussion never went anywhere - our music tastes are so different amigo!!
Well this list is extremely out of date now (not that I don't like anything from it, but I'd probably restrict it to one band per entry) and would now contain a reasonable amount of classic metal as it was after I made this list I made some effort to look into it
