KB's Favorite Albums Of All Time (Only Metal)

Here is my provisional favorite-metal-albums-of-all-time-list! Enjoy!
The first 10 albums are in pretty accurate order. However, after that, it becomes harder and harder to separate the albums clearly. Thus, you can say that I enjoy album x on the list as much as the others in the interval of (x-5) to (x+5). For example album 37 would be as much enjoyed as 32, 33, 34, ..., 42, or something like that.

1. Cult Of Luna - Somewhere Along The Highway
2. Disillusion - Back To Times Of Splendor
3. Grand Alchemist - Intervening Coma-Celebration
4. Opeth - Blackwater Park
5. Dream Theater - Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory

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
