Top 20 Favorite Gothic Metal Albums Of All Time

Gothic Metal is without a doubt my all time favorite style of metal, it pretty much led me to a new technique of metal that can also be done, it is what I breathe everyday, and it is a style that has appealed to my feelings since first discovering the genre five years ago. These are the gothic metal albums I consider to be the greatest ever heard.These are the albums that I listen to 24/7 and to this day still feels fresh and powerful since the moment I first listened to them.

1. Draconian - Arcane Rain Fell
2. Anathema - Eternity
3. Type O Negative - October Rust
4. My Dying Bride - Turn Loose the Swans
5. Tiamat - Wildhoney

Irritatingly Underrated Metal

I think that the albums listed below are underrated.
Even those albums that are rated more than 8.6, should've made it to the top 200, or higher in that list. It's not only the score, but also the low amount of attention from the metal community to some of these albums.
Albums are in no particular order.
No, I am not fond of Euro power metal.

1. Anthrax - Among The Living
2. Anthrax - Fistful Of Metal
3. Anthrax - Sound Of White Noise
4. Biohazard - State Of The World Address
5. Danzig - Danzig 4

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

Brimbly-Brambly Bucka-Bucka Woozle-Wuzzle It's A Doom List.

I find it difficult to keep track of all the doom bands and albums that I enjoy, and they are beginning to pile up. To combat the situation, I've devised this list of quality doom releases for quick reference. It's not in a very specific order, but there is a general sense that one could be imposed upon it. The first few are definitely my favorites, but after that point it degenerates into a general collection of albums that I like.

1. Black Sabbath - Paranoid
2. Warning - Watching From A Distance
3. Woods Of Ypres - Woods 5: Grey Skies & Electric Light
4. Kypck - Черно
5. Hamferð - Evst

The Best Gothic Metal Albums

Note 1: This list will take time before it gets a definitive form (or it might take forever if good gothic metal albums will be released in the future).

Note 2: Another important feature is that this list will not take into consideration the Metalstorm way of labeling what is gothic metal and what isn't. Some albums have gothic metal elements yet they are not categorized as gothic metal. No hard feelings. I am also accepting suggestions as I might slip a couple of albums in the process.

1. Estatic Fear - A Sombre Dance
2. Tiamat - Wildhoney
3. The Sins Of Thy Beloved - Lake Of Sorrow
4. Tristania - Widow's Weeds
5. Theatre Of Tragedy - Velvet Darkness They Fear
