Bibliophilia: Metal For Bookworms

A list for us bookworms, nerds, geeks, etc. Books are brutal and totally fucking metal.
This list lists books, poems, comic books, non-fiction and even movie adaptions of said books in some cases referenced to in albums (whether by concept, individual song or title).
This list is old. I started this way before The Epics, but never finished it. It's obviously not finished, so feel free to request. Initially, I was decided whether I should include songs based on stories from the Bible, but I'm leaning towards it. So expect that in a bit.

1. Ahab - The Call Of The Wretched Sea
2. Anthrax - Among The Living
3. Anthrax - State Of Euphoria
4. Avenged Sevenfold - City Of Evil
5. Blind Guardian - Somewhere Far Beyond

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

The @gents Old School Death Metal / Not So Old School Grindcore List

Bands listed alphabetically, One album per band (With the exception of Carcass and Napalm Death who appear in the Grind and Death Metal sections). Some bands may not be pure old school (Death / Thrash, Doom Death / Death Doom and early Brutal / Technical Death Included) I have also Included some of the more extreme Thrash releases that pre-dated the genre but undoubtedly help pave the way for things to come, I included these as I wish to give a general summary of the way Death Metal began and evolved throughout the 80's and 90's.

1. Old School Death Metal (Late 80's - 90's)
2. Abhorrence - Abhorrence [EP]
3. Acrostichon - Engraved in Black
4. Adramelech - Psychostasia
