Symphonic Metal Done Differently

Nightwish, Dimmu Borgir, Septicflesh and their respective clones are not welcome here. The title is a bit misleading since none of these albums are 'symphonic metal' per se, but they're metal with symphonic/orchestra elements added in a way that's unconventional, or at least as far as I know. Suggestions welcome.

1. Apocalyptica - Plays Metallica By Four Cellos
2. Aquilus - Griseus
3. Blind Guardian - At the Edge of Time
4. Igorrr - Hallelujah
5. Turisas - Stand Up and Fight

2011 Suggestions For The Eclectic Metalhead

If you're like me and can't sit still with just one or two genres, perhaps you'll find some ideas in this list. I kept the variety with genres, but also by including all worthy bands from unknown newcomers all the way up to big names. Basically, everything I liked this year.

Since there are so many genres here, don't get too worked up about specific rating and placement. They're generally in order, but more importantly they're all amazing.

1. Silent Stream Of Godless Elegy - Návaz
2. Fair To Midland - Arrows & Anchors
3. Autumn - Cold Comfort
4. Shadowside - Inner Monster Out
5. 40 Watt Sun - The Inside Room

2011: Favourite To Least

Purely subjective list based on personal preferences for the year, unrelated to mass opinion of an album or a band's abilities (e.g. Trivium, Oranssi Pazuzu) - many albums lined up to listen to so will increase in size. Also, not entirely in order, middle order mainly just an approximation.

1. Sylosis - Edge Of The Earth
2. Protest The Hero - Scurrilous
3. Infestus - E x I s t
4. Amorphis - The Beginning Of Times
5. Ouroboros - Glorification Of A Myth
