MetalMac's Top 10 Overlooked Albums

I'm a sucker for great hooks and catchy choruses. Some bands from this list will show that. Furthermore, I love technical, percise performances. I love the rise and fall of a song where the mood changes with the volume and pace. I love break downs and build ups to lyrically meaningful climaxes from the album's story. My number one, I believe, does all of that. The sound Anthriel is producing could, and maybe should, rival bands such as Symphony X and Dream Theater.

1. Anthriel - The Pathway
2. Neal Morse - Sola Scriptura
3. DGM - Different Shapes
4. It Bites - The Tall Ships
5. It Bites - Map Of The Past
