"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. Cellador - Enter Deception
4. Children Of Bodom - Follow The Reaper
5. Cirith Ungol - King Of The Dead

Evolution: Sailing The Seas Of Prog

Recently, instead of scouring too much the albums of the year I'm in, I decided to take a deeper journey and appreciate progressive music (prog metal/rock). While I'm still in the early beginnings of my journey, I decided to make a list to the albums I fully listen to so that I can keep charting my voyage in these vast seas. Some albums are not yet added because I need to listen them well and grab my favorites out, and some bands are on queue. I'm also eager to hear some recommendations, so thanks in advance for them!

1. Ayreon - The Human Equation
2. Barren Earth - The Devil's Resolve
3. Blotted Science - The Machinations of Dementia
4. Control Denied - The Fragile Art of Existence
5. Dream Theater - A Change Of Seasons [EP]

Well, I can't afford every album I want so I'm going off of my August 2013 count of about 700 albums. First time I've ever done this so it may be quite scattered.

This is personal and not like a Rust in Peace, then Black Sabbath, then Painkiller type of list. Time to destroy.

1. Stratovarius - Visions
2. Opeth - Ghost Reveries
3. Yes - Close to the Edge
4. Omnium Gatherum - New World Shadows
5. Ayreon - 01011001
