Too Obscure!

Here's a list of albums that are so obscure it's almost a crime. The list is ordered so that albums scoring high in both obscurity and quality are near the top.

WORK IN PROGRESS. Some of the albums ending up here may already be "Metal Storm approved", but this might be used for broader reference.

1. Skein - Of Wings Unfolding
2. Oddland - The Treachery Of Senses
3. Turbid North - Orogeny
4. Chaos Divine - The Human Connection
5. Anthriel - The Pathway

While there is little introduction required for some of these bands and their front(wo)men, there are no words that can accurately describe such jaw-dropping talent anyhow. The albums and youtube links listed are meant to display the full capacity of vocalists' talents, not the bands' most quality or popular tracks - click the links below and behold the prowess.

1. Abstrakt Algebra - Abstrakt Algebra
2. Adagio - Underworld
3. Akercocke - Words That Go Unspoken, Deeds That Go Undone
4. Amorphis - Silent Waters
5. Anaal Nathrakh - Vanitas

Top 20 albums of 2012

A really good year, full of surprises. Never been much of a Sabaton fan and especially not a fan of Lamb of God. Both bands released kick ass albums. Avatar keep on getting better and better. Rush released their best album in 25 years. Kreator gave me one of the best thrash albums I've ever heard.

1. Kreator - Phantom Antichrist
2. Wintersun - Time I
3. An Autumn For Crippled Children - Only The Ocean Knows
4. Anaal Nathrakh - Vanitas
5. Darkend - Grand Guignol - Book I

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

MMXII: Ranking The "Final" Year's Albums

While I'm slightly disappointed the world didn't end this year, I thought I'd share my musical tastes from throughout the year by arbitrarily ranking other people's art. When the year began I was really into sludge and stoner but as the year has worn on, it's been the black metal releases which by and large have won my attention and appreciation.

1. Desolate Shrine - The Sanctum of Human Darkness
2. Royal Thunder - CVI
3. Ancestors - In Dreams and Time
4. Hail Spirit Noir - Pneuma
5. Hidden Orchestra - Archipelago
