My Favorite Atmospheric Black Metal Albums (WIP)

This is a favorites list, not a guide or anything of that sort. It just highlights the albums that I've enjoyed listening to and spinned extensively since last November (When I got into this monolithic genre.) One entry for each band. The descriptions aren't necessarily descriptions of the music. I just wrote what came to my mind. I will update with new albums frequently.
EDIT: Got to 50 entries, so I guess I'll stop for now. I want more time to revisit these 50, get into the other albums of the bands listed below and delve into other genres of metal. I guess that taking a break from black metal (at least new stuff) will ensure that I won't get bored of it. It is likely that I'll continue this list by the half of July.

1. A Forest Of Stars - Opportunistic Thieves Of Spring
2. Addaura - Burning For The Ancient
3. Agalloch - Pale Folklore
4. Alcest - Écailles De Lune
5. Alda - : Tahoma :

2011 Stuff I Spun A Lot (last update: February 2012)

In order roughly, by the number of spins. A lot = A LOT. So when I give ten more spins to the rest of the albums I've listened to, and forgot to rate most probably, this will grow larger. Or not. I'm making this for me anyway.

1. Subsignal - Touchstones
2. Symphony X - Iconoclast
3. Amorphis - The Beginning Of Times
4. Pain Of Salvation - Road Salt Two
5. Iced Earth - Dystopia

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

MMXI: Handpicked by MechanisT

Best (and worst) of 2011 (thus far).
Partially ordered (thus far).
Subject to change, as I see fit.

What a wonderful year, I have to say! This year has seen me expand my tastes like never before. Discovered so many great new acts, while many metal stalwarts delivered the goods as expected. A truly memorable year, and one that I will forever cherish, as far as me being an avid music enthusiast is concerned.

1. Septicflesh - The Great Mass
2. Omnium Gatherum - New World Shadows
3. Sylosis - Edge Of The Earth
4. Heavenwood - Abyss Masterpiece
5. Insomnium - One For Sorrow
