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

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
