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

2014 Suggestions For The Eclectic Metalhead

Suggestions For The Eclectic Metalhead - 2014 Edition. I spent over half of 2014 NOT absorbing new metal, and thus spent the rest of the year catching up. I'm pretty certain I missed many great albums, as well as missing a few entire genres, so know that this isn't an exhaustive list (and why it is only 30 instead of 50). These albums all easily rate an 8 or higher and are my favorite and most recommended albums. If your tastes are equally varied, please recommend me your favorites in return!

1. Evenoire - Herons
2. Evergrey - Hymns for the Broken
3. Wayfarer - Children Of The Iron Age
4. November-7 - Awaraxid 7mg
5. Sivyj Yar - From The Dead Villages' Darkness

Anubis Gate - Best To Worst

Sort of stumbled upon Anubis Gate. Not too often do you see the bassist as lead singer/frontman of the band. It's hard to place the specific sound of the band since they're a blend of power and progressive metal. They're a great band that I would highly recommend checking out.

1. Anubis Gate - Anubis Gate
2. Anubis Gate - Andromeda Unchained
3. Anubis Gate - Horizons
4. Anubis Gate - The Detached
5. Anubis Gate - A Perfect Forever

2014: The Cold March Towards Eternal Brightness

Past fanaticism aside, this list endeavors to be a much more concise, less insane venture. I intend only to include albums I really like, which admittedly doesn't entail a great amount so far this year. So I'll start out small, and hopefully it will balloon out from there.

Ordered by preference, though always subject to change.

1. Spectral Lore - III
2. Anubis Gate - Horizons
3. Bloodway - Sunstone Voyager and the Clandestine Horizon
4. Prajna - The Summer Eclipse
5. Hail Spirit Noir - Oi Magoi

2014 - Leth's List Of Likables (Non-Metal Inclusive)

Pretty much every album that's caught my attention over the year, including non-metal. (Variety is a virtue, y'know )

I'll only be commenting on albums that I've given enough time to really form an opinion on. Chances are albums that failed to interest me beyond a first listen will eventually be removed from the list.

1. Swans - To Be Kind
2. Darren Korb - Transistor Original Soundtrack
3. Bent Knee - Shiny Eyed Babies
4. Gazpacho - Demon
5. Vampillia - My Beautiful Twisted Nightmares In Aurora Rainbow Darkness
