100 Greatest Metal Bands

Pretty self-explanatory, with a couple caveats: first, this is mostly just a list of my favorite metal bands in approximate order (after the top 10 or so the order matters far less), with extra weight given to influence and timelessness of sound; and second, the albums selected are not necessarily the band's "best" album, or even my personal favorite -- they are the albums that I feel best represent the band's classic sound and/or well-represent the span of their career. List includes all sub-genres of metal and some post-metal metal. Feel free to spew your hatred below. \m/ (xx) \m/

1. Black Sabbath - Paranoid
2. Iron Maiden - Powerslave
3. Metallica - Master Of Puppets
4. Judas Priest - Screaming For Vengeance
5. Slayer - Reign In Blood

That Cold Black Magic, By Glenn Killer And His Thorchestra

Same deal as my doom list: this is for my own organizational purposes and is designed purely to help me keep track of all the many black metal bands and albums that I enjoy, since I can't keep all of this information in my head. It has no other benefit whatsoever and will likely result in tantrums should anyone else see it. I'm aware that I haven't listened to every black metal album that I should have. I only went down to the 7s on this list, so it's possible that I have listened to your favorite album that you desperately need to suggest and I thought it was terrible. There are a lot of heinously incompetent black metal bands out there.

1. Sigh - Imaginary Sonicscape
2. Forefather - Steadfast
3. Sigh - Graveward
4. Dissection - Storm Of The Light's Bane
5. Mayhem - De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas

Summoning Albums: Best To Worst

So I finally decided to go through with creating this list. The reason is simple: Summoning is easily one of my favourite bands ever. On top of that, they're also one of the most consistent bands ever, despite the fact that all the albums sound so different from each other. Yes, you read that correctly: to a Summoning fan literally every album is unique in their own way and don't really sound so much alike as people want to make you believe. One thing is certain, most of their albums (not Lugburz) fall under the category of mid-paced Epic Atmospheric Black Metal, with some Folk elements added here and there. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Summoning is definitely the ultimate Tolkien-influenced band. I added ratings (yes, they're very high, I'm aware of that) as well as the best songs (my personal favourites) of each album to the list, and a short description as well. Choosing the best songs was particularly hard for the top 3 albums, because most of the songs on those albums are excellent. Lastly, let me know your opinion by leaving a comment. After all, opinions is what these kind of lists are about.

1. Summoning - Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame
2. Summoning - Stronghold
3. Summoning - Old Mornings Dawn
4. Summoning - Minas Morgul
5. Summoning - Oath Bound

Bibliophilia: Metal For Bookworms

A list for us bookworms, nerds, geeks, etc. Books are brutal and totally fucking metal.
This list lists books, poems, comic books, non-fiction and even movie adaptions of said books in some cases referenced to in albums (whether by concept, individual song or title).
This list is old. I started this way before The Epics, but never finished it. It's obviously not finished, so feel free to request. Initially, I was decided whether I should include songs based on stories from the Bible, but I'm leaning towards it. So expect that in a bit.

1. Ahab - The Call Of The Wretched Sea
2. Anthrax - Among The Living
3. Anthrax - State Of Euphoria
4. Avenged Sevenfold - City Of Evil
5. Blind Guardian - Somewhere Far Beyond
