"Too Many Notes": A Study In Guitar-Masturbation

This is a collection of solos in metal songs that are friggin' long. Just for shits and giggles.
I don't care for quality; all insanelyfuckinglong metal solos are welcome.

I make the rules up as I go along, but here are a few I've already come up with:
- Let's say "friggin' long" is at least one minute

1. Ayreon - Into The Electric Castle
2. Bathory - Hammerheart
3. Beyond Creation - The Aura
4. Cellador - Enter Deception
5. Children Of Bodom - Follow The Reaper

This is a list of my favourite debut albums.
I'm sure there are some years that will have multiple great debut albums but I'm limiting to only putting one band per year.
The ones that I put in the list is (in my opinion) the best debut album of that year, while the rest are put in honourable mentions.

1. Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
2. AC/DC - T.N.T.
3. Iron Maiden - Iron Maiden
4. Venom - Welcome To Hell
5. Witchfinder General - Death Penalty

A List Of Great Debut Albums

A lot of bands have great debut albums. Obviously this list is just a fraction of all the great debut albums out there, but it's a start. I'll keep expanding this list continuously, so all suggestions are welcome (granted they are featured on MS). All the albums here are ranked according to genre and then alphabetically. If a certain album belongs to the (in your opinion) wrong genre, then definitely let me know.

1. [Avantgarde]
2. Aarni - Bathos
3. Arcturus - Aspera Hiems Symfonia
4. Diablo Swing Orchestra - The Butcher's Ballroom
5. Sadness - Ames De Marbre

The Most Metal / Rock Albums With Impact On Me

Kinda saw another relative lists on here that state this, one bad and one inspirational, so thought I might do my own.

1. AC/DC - Back In Black
2. Accept - Stalingrad
3. Agalloch - The Mantle
4. Amon Amarth - Versus The World
5. Anthrax - Spreading The Disease

Playing To My Strengths: Facing Death And Its Technicalities

What to expect; incredibly challenging and technically-proficient death metal, or death metal noted for stifling and dense atmospheric prevalence, or both, that may or may not be traversable in one go. Listener's discretion is advised.

Many albums featured here may borrow elements from other genres (prog, thrash, melodeath, grindcore, post, etc.), but the dominant stench of complexity-laden death metal is forever present, and so deserve to be mentioned here.

1. 7th Nemesis - Deterministic Nonperiodic Flow
2. !T.O.O.H.! - Order And Punishment (Řád A Trest)
3. Ævangelist - De Masticatione Mortuorum In Tumulis
4. A Million Dead Birds Laughing - Xen
5. Abnormality - Contaminating The Hive Mind
