The Rarest CDs In Jiri's Kollection

The following CDs are the as the title states, "The Rarest CDs In Jiri's Kollection". However, there are two LP sets, so the title is ultimately lying. Anyway, these CDs have ineffable sentimental and "pride for owning them" value, as well as monetary value. I have listed them in order of "pride" importance; meaning the first is the most adored by Jiri and the last is least adored by Jiri, but still a rare artifact. That said, anything ultra rare in Jiri's kollection was examined and placed into the list below. Enjoy.

1. Root - Kärgeräs
2. Chthonic - Where The Ancestors' Souls Gathered
3. Ulver - The Trilogie - Three Journeyes through the Norwegian Netherworlde
4. Sigh - Infidel Art
5. Sigh - Ghastly Funeral Theatre

Top Doom and/or Melodeath Albums I Keep Getting Back To

Lately I have found that I am really, really into melodeath and doom/melancholic metal albums. I enjoy other genres, but after a while I keep reverting back to a small list of masterpieces.

This is a list of these albums. They somehow keep finding their way back into my CD player. As it happens, they (mostly) fit in the following genres:

1. Ghost Brigade - Isolation Songs
2. Katatonia - Dead End Kings
3. Amorphis - The Beginning Of Times
4. Before The Dawn - Deathstar Rising
5. Insomnium - Across The Dark

Metal-Gems: "Power Metal"

A list for power metal bands and albums, which are sadly overlooked by the majority, but are highly deserving much more attention. That means obviously that this is no place for the genres biggest and most well known acts, like Blind Guardian, Helloween, Sabaton or the likes.
This list is ever progressing, so feel free to suggest as many bands as they come up in your mind. I will check them out and then decide if they need to be included or not.
The only requirements: They should be quite well hidden in the metal world and not only be extraordinary good but also really something else (I obviously don't want to fill this list with a bunch of unknown, but average, generic and thousand times copied plastic power metal bands).
This list is ordered by my personal impressions.

1. Crom - Vengeance
2. Wuthering Heights - The Shadow Cabinet
3. Fairyland - Score To A New Beginning
4. Dol Ammad - Ocean Dynamics
5. Eldritch - El Niño
