Magical Albums

Good musical pieces are those that initiate an emotional reaction or a subconscious shift of your subjective perception. The best music are those that elicit the most positive or dramatic of changes to our psyches. This is a list that I return to occasionally for these effects.

It is subjective of course.

1. Agalloch - The Mantle
2. Agalloch - Ashes Against The Grain
3. Amon Amarth - Twilight Of The Thunder God
4. Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors
5. Atoma - Skylight

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. Hamferð - Evst
5. Hamferð - Vilst Er Síðsta Fet

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

The Best "(Gothic) Beauty And The Beast" Albums

Here's a list of mostly Gothic Metal albums, exclusively of the "Beauty and the Beast" type (which refers to clean "angelic" female vocals contrasted with male growls/screams). I made this list because it's one of my all-time favourite subgenres of which I own "a lot" of great albums. Since there are several lists of the best Gothic Metal albums on MS, I didn't feel like creating a similar one, but rather an exclusive list solely comprised of this subgenre. It could be useful as a guide for people who are searching for these kinds of albums, though I'm very open to suggestions since I obviously haven't heard all great albums yet. Lastly, everything on this list is at least worth a 7.5/10 rating and I only add a maximum of 2 albums per band.

1. Tristania - Widow's Weeds
2. The Sins Of Thy Beloved - Lake Of Sorrow
3. Draconian - Where Lovers Mourn
4. Epica - The Phantom Agony
5. Theatre Of Tragedy - Velvet Darkness They Fear
