Current Top 100, 5 Years On

Back when I joined the site in 2011, I did a customary top 100 album list. Every year since then, when I've looked back at it it's become increasingly unrecognisable from my own tastes. Seeing bands I once listened to daily vanish from my playlists, new bands emerge as favourites, and bands even come and go in my reckonings during that time period (Iced Earth, Alcest, even Pain Of Salvation and more certainly peaked in my listening habits around 2011-12 to slowly vanish into obscurity). Now that it's just gone 5 years since I did that list, I thought I might do an updated list just to see how much my tastes have shifted. Whilst compiling the list, I pretty much worked on gut instinct, which was weird as I found myself almost disregarding albums I know I like whilst promoting albums I'm honestly undecided on - it almost seemed to veer away from album quality at times to embracing a subconscious effect the albums have had. Anyway, here it is, plus some honorable mentions that I was surprised missed out.

1. Dream Theater - Images And Words
2. Sylosis - Monolith
3. Sylosis - Edge Of The Earth
4. Agalloch - The Mantle
5. Protest The Hero - Kezia

Blind Guardian Discography (Ranked)

My personal ranking of all the Blind Guardian studio albums. I think all of their albums in the 90's are absolutely fantastic and my favourite has switched around a few times because of this. For quite a few years it was Tales From The Twilight World, then it was Imaginations From The Other Side. I have to agree with my number 1 choice though. When it comes to the worst albums, I don't actually think they have any weak studio albums, but the debut isn't really impressive to me and while Follow The Blind was an improvement, it still lacks something when compared to the releases that would come after. I think A Twist In The Myth is somewhat underrated and I was highly disappointed with their 2015 release Beyond The Red Mirror

1. Blind Guardian - Nightfall In Middle-Earth
2. Blind Guardian - Imaginations From The Other Side
3. Blind Guardian - Tales From The Twilight World
4. Blind Guardian - Somewhere Far Beyond
5. Blind Guardian - A Night At The Opera

After Five Years Of Metal: My Top 20 Favorite Albums

The end of 2013 marks the end of the fifth year of my journey into metal. I had listened to a select few songs prior to that, but around five years ago, I started to delve into the genre and I've discovered a lot of great music as a result. Much of my success I owe to Metalstorm for providing such an excellent platform. I want to express my sincere thanks to everyone who keeps this site running. I mostly enjoy the more melodic genres of metal, so don't expect a lot of extreme stuff. Also, please keep in mind that the following list is not a list of what I consider to be the best metal albums of all time or anything like it. It is simply a collection or a countdown of the albums that I have enjoyed the most during my journey so far.

1. Kamelot - The Black Halo
2. Rush - Hemispheres
3. Blind Guardian - Imaginations From The Other Side
4. Crimson Glory - Transcendence
5. Immortal - At The Heart of Winter
