Favourite Album's Of The 00's

My favorite and most enjoyed album's of the decade 2000-2009. Roughly in order, but not exactly.

You can kinda tell from this list that I joined Metalstorm in 2009. I started discovering far more music thanks to this site, hence the number of '09 releases featured. I'm slowly starting to pick back through the top lists of previous years, so I expect more pre-'09 releases will be added to this list.

1. Opeth - Blackwater Park
2. Vektor - Black Future
3. Between the Buried and Me - The Great Misdirect
4. Sikth - Death of a Dead Day
5. Protest the Hero - Fortress

*The List I'll Never Finish (Top 20 Albums)*

I just finished making this list and I hate it already. Trying to put your favorite albums in order is very hard. I went at thinking which 20 would I take with me to a deserted island so I went for some variety. However, I don't think I got it right so expect the list to change frequently but for now this is roughly accurate. **Last Update 09/03/11**

1. Septicflesh - Communion
2. Symphony X - V: The New Mythology Suite
3. Septicflesh - The Great Mass
4. Symphony X - The Divine Wings Of Tragedy
5. Ghost Brigade - Isolation Songs

Will probably change a lot, except for the top ten, which is harder to break into.

1. Edge of Sanity - Crimson
2. Primordial - To the Nameless Dead
3. Artillery - By Inheritance
4. Agalloch - The Mantle
5. Theatre of Tragedy - Aégis

My Favorite 40 Metal Albums Ever (+5...)

Overhauled as of May 10th, 2012! Top 5 favorite non-metal albums featured at the bottom.

This is a much improved (and more recently accurate) reworking of my previous favorite albums list, with a few albums added and a couple dropped entirely. They are in order of preference, though changes and the possibility of total equals are still in play. I've axed my undescriptive commentary but kept my genre and favorite song catgories.

1. Crimson Glory - Transcendence
2. Anubis Gate - The Detached
3. Artillery - By Inheritance
4. Crimson Glory - Crimson Glory
5. Metal Church - Hanging In The Balance

1. Riverside - Out Of Myself
2. Porcupine Tree - In Absentia
3. Riverside - Second Life Syndrome
4. Porcupine Tree - Deadwing
5. Opeth - Blackwater Park
