The List Of Venice

All this is going to be is a list of all my favourite albums. Probably of all time, but I dunno. It's going to be a mixture of metal and non-metal albums. Enjoy. I will try to avoid some of the big guns, but I may slip one or two in. This will probably just end up being a list of stuff I really just kind of like.

1. Crippled Black Phoenix - I, Vigilante
2. Aquilus - Griseus
3. Dream Theater - Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory
4. Major Parkinson - Twilight Cinema

I'll keep expanding this list continuously, so all suggestions are welcome (granted they are featured on MS). All the albums here are ranked according to genre and then alphabetically. If a certain album belongs to the (in your opinion) wrong genre, then definitely let me know.

1. [Avantgarde]
2. Aarni - Bathos
3. Arcturus - Aspera Hiems Symfonia
4. Diablo Swing Orchestra - The Butcher's Ballroom
5. Sadness - Ames De Marbre

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
