KB's Favorite Albums Of All Time (Only Metal)

Here is my provisional favorite-metal-albums-of-all-time-list! Enjoy!
The first 10 albums are in pretty accurate order. However, after that, it becomes harder and harder to separate the albums clearly. Thus, you can say that I enjoy album x on the list as much as the others in the interval of (x-5) to (x+5). For example album 37 would be as much enjoyed as 32, 33, 34, ..., 42, or something like that.

1. Cult Of Luna - Somewhere Along The Highway
2. Disillusion - Back To Times Of Splendor
3. Grand Alchemist - Intervening Coma-Celebration
4. Opeth - Blackwater Park
5. Dream Theater - Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory

Songs For Your Metal Party

This is my personal selection of albums (with specific songs) that you'd like to play in your next metal party.
The songs are sorted so the more powerful and energetic songs are equally spread all along the list, except the last songs, which are softer than average.

I'm currently working in this list (well... in my spare time), so it's not the final one.

1. Unexpect - Fables of the Sleepless Empire
2. Korpiklaani - Karkelo
3. Solefald - Norrøn Livskunst
4. Mastodon - Crack The Skye
5. Kvelertak - Blodtørst

2008: The Amphibian Halo (as In 'my Blurry View Of 2008')

Updated version of the list previously published here. You'll notice that the comments are a bit different for sure, as is the order:
1 to 3: best of the year (in preference order)
4 to 25: other great stuff (alphabetical order)

And then there were some average (sometimes bad, sometimes good) albums that didn't make it in this list, but they featured some of the most awesome songs of the year. Like Voices Of The Fallen by Battlelore, Dylath-Leen's Frozen Reflect On A Broken Mirror, and particularly Iced Earth's Come What May...

1. Textures - Silhouettes
2. Esoteric - The Maniacal Vale
3. Burst - Lazarus Bird
4. ADX - Division Blindée
5. Cynic - Traced In Air

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

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

*My Favorite Musicians*

I'll start with the disclaimer that I am not, nor ever have been, a musician. This list is of my own favorite performers, not the actual technical best musicians as I am a layman and can only go by what my stupid ears tell me. You'll notice the list is vocalist heavy which is a byproduct of my lack of musical talent. The list contains the artist, their instrument and the release where I feel they are at their best. **Last Update 08/16/11**

1. Symphony X - The Odyssey
2. Septicflesh - Communion
3. Symphony X - V: The New Mythology Suite
4. Scar Symmetry - Pitch Black Progress
5. Symphony X - The Divine Wings Of Tragedy
