2000-2014: A 'Factored' Top 100

Take a look at the Top Album lists of recent years and you'll notice an obvious trend. In 2005 the average rating of the top 25 albums is 8.76. Jump to 2014 and the average among the top 25 has dropped to 8.26. An almost linear decrease is observable for the 10 years in between.

I was curious to see what a Top 100 for 2000-2014 would look like if I factored the votes to account for the 'rating decline'. I hope you find it interesting.

1. Agalloch - The Mantle
2. Opeth - Blackwater Park
3. Blindead - Affliction XXIX II MXMVI
4. Aquilus - Griseus
5. Nevermore - Dead Heart In A Dead World

2010-2014: Top 100 Albums (WIP)

2008 might've been my first proper taste of metal, with the acquisition of albums from the likes of Metallica, Megadeth, Black Sabbath and that most grandiose of gateway bands, DragonForce. 2009 might've seen me expanding my palette, with Iron Maiden, Alice In Chains, Avenged Sevenfold, and more entering my world, and Guns N' Roses triumphantly re-entering it. But 2010 was when I delved into more 'intense' stuff with Machine Head, In Flames, and most notably of all, Sylosis, and saw my relationship with metal shift from ever-increasing interest into full-blown love affair. To commemorate this 5-year anniversary, and because I love making lists, I decided to do a retrospective of the best albums and songs that have been released during this time period, and give brief tributes to them. Yay music!

1. Sylosis - Edge Of The Earth
2. Sylosis - Monolith
3. Protest The Hero - Volition
4. Orphaned Land - The Never Ending Way Of ORwarriOR
5. Be'lakor - Of Breath And Bone

Best Of 2013 XIII (An Enigmatic Journey)

Hello and welcome to my first ever top albums list. While I've been listening to metal for over 15 years I've never compiled an actual year end list. The reason for this is because I feel my current favorites to be ever changing dependent on mood, season and situational. But the reason I feel it's necessary is because I want to spread the joy of music. I see many people jaded on music, well if this list is any indication music is alive and doing some amazing things. I've encountered so many lists this year and honestly can't say there's anything close to my list. Whole brilliant albums left off of list after list, but it is all opinion. Other albums held up in high regard that just made me shake my head or perplex me. Even reading many lists gets annoying do to slideshows or advertisement overload or no explanations, I've made this as easy to browse as I could. This is a celebration of the music of 2013. Doing this list was fun yet stressful for me. To me a list isn't a versus or better than. It's just a personal list, still I want to make the numbers carry weight and importance.
Enjoy, comment below and spread the word

1. In Vain - Ænigma
2. Soilwork - The Living Infinite
3. Amorphis - Circle
4. Obscure Sphinx - Void Mother
5. Haken - The Mountain

Absolutely amazing year! The fact that a Dream Theater fanboy such as myself can't put their self titled release on the list either shows what a great year it was or how dissapointed I was with that album.

1. Ayreon - The Theory Of Everything
2. Tribulation - The Formulas Of Death
3. Ghost - Infestissumam
4. In Vain - Ænigma
5. Thyrfing - De Ödeslösa
