My share of experime(n)tal music and other innovative stuff

I wanted to create my personal Top List for a long time and to be honest, I always considered it as some kind of cool Prog Metal, Avantgarde Metal mix. As you can see, it has become a bit more complicated. So finally, there are Unexpect and Pain Of Salvation next to Bands like Kamelot and Savatage. Also, some Non-Metal Bands got involved like Jeff Buckley and Oingo Boingo. But could you imagine how PoS would sound without Jeffs influence? Or what would have become of Mr. Bungle if it weren't for Danny Elfman and Oingo Boingo?!

1. Pain Of Salvation - The Perfect Element, Part I
2. Kalisia - Cybion
3. Savatage - Streets: A Rock Opera
4. Dog Fashion Disco - Adultery
5. Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors

2. Helloween - Keeper Of The Seven Keys Part II
3. Angra - Temple Of Shadows
4. Angra - Rebirth
5. Stratovarius - Visions
