Favorite Albums By My Favorite Bands

I picked one album by each of my favorite bands for this list. Keep in mind that after the first few albums I put on the list, it became increasingly difficult to figure out where to place artists in my list. Also, this is kind of how my favorite bands lie now, as far as how often I listen to them - whereas some of these bands used to be much more frequently played, years ago. But this is, more or less, a list of my favorite albums by my favorite bands.

1. Dream Theater - Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory
2. Seventh Wonder - The Great Escape
3. Symphony X - The Odyssey
4. Circus Maximus - Nine
5. Haken - Visions

Space Metal!

***Currently working through suggestions and adding some spacey non-metal things when they cross my mind***
As a lover of all things sci-fi I find metal to be the most accommodating of genres when it comes to themes of space/aliens. This is a list of those albums which use this theme and/or evoke an overall 'spacey' atmosphere and which I find particularly intriguing and enjoyable. No order for now and a work in progress (recommendations most welcome) Last Updated: 9th April 2014

1. Atoma - Skylight
2. Ayreon - The Universal Migrator Part I: The Dream Sequencer
3. Dol Ammad - Star Tales
4. Star One - Space Metal
5. Pagan's Mind - Enigmatic : Calling
