2000-2014: A 'Factored' Top 100

Take a look at the Top Album lists of recent years and you'll notice an obvious trend. In 2005 the average rating of the top 25 albums is 8.76. Jump to 2014 and the average among the top 25 has dropped to 8.26. An almost linear decrease is observable for the 10 years in between.

I was curious to see what a Top 100 for 2000-2014 would look like if I factored the votes to account for the 'rating decline'. I hope you find it interesting.

1. Agalloch - The Mantle
2. Opeth - Blackwater Park
3. Blindead - Affliction XXIX II MXMVI
4. Aquilus - Griseus
5. Nevermore - Dead Heart In A Dead World

Brimbly-Brambly Bucka-Bucka Woozle-Wuzzle It's A Doom List.

I find it difficult to keep track of all the doom bands and albums that I enjoy, and they are beginning to pile up. To combat the situation, I've devised this list of quality doom releases for quick reference. It's not in a very specific order, but there is a general sense that one could be imposed upon it. The first few are definitely my favorites, but after that point it degenerates into a general collection of albums that I like.

1. Black Sabbath - Paranoid
2. Warning - Watching From A Distance
3. Woods Of Ypres - Woods 5: Grey Skies & Electric Light
4. Hamferð - Evst
5. Hamferð - Vilst Er Síðsta Fet

The Best "(Melodic) Death Doom" Albums

Here's a list that contains only Death Doom and Melodic Death Doom Metal albums, so Gothic (check out my other list for that), Funeral or Sludge Doom etc. are NOT included here (but elements from those subgenres might be present in some of the albums on this list). The reason I made this list is because "death doom" is easily one of my all-time favourite subgenres of music in general. Also, there's not a single similar list on MS to be found (at least to my knowing), hence why I feel people who are into this subgenre can use this list to find out more great music. The list is ordened to my own preference and all these albums are worth at least an 8/10 (the alphabetically ranked albums on the bottom of the list will eventually be ranked among the others, but I haven't listened enough to those to do so). The styles (pure/melodic/atmospheric death doom metal) of the ranked albums are also added so it's easier for people to find what they're looking for. I only add 1 album per band for the sake of variety as well as for keeping the list comprehensible. Lastly, give me suggestions so I can check 'em out and add them to the list (only albums that are featured on MS).

1. Katatonia - Brave Murder Day
2. My Dying Bride - Turn Loose The Swans
3. Saturnus - Paradise Belongs To You
4. Desire - Locus Horrendus - The Night Cries Of A Sullen Soul...
5. Disembowelment - Transcendence Into The Peripheral

The Epics (Because I Don't Think Pyramid God Is Coming Back)

My version of The Epics (Best Songs Over 10 Minutes) only this time it's more The Epics (Songs Over 10 Minutes) because we kept griping to PG and he wouldn't update his list. According to his profile he hasn't been on in... 371 days. So I thought "Hey, why not do it myself?"
Arranged by time. If you feel or know a song should be on here, let me know. I'm a mainstream fag, so I only listen to the popular stuff. I might have missed some bands.

1. Be'lakor - Stone's Reach
2. Kalisia - Cybion
3. Sun Of The Blind - Skullreader
4. Nile - Ithyphallic
5. Nightwish - Once
