Supermassive List: Top 20 Picks of Each Year of the Last Decade (2000-2009)

This is not a typical "Best of the decade" list. To be more precise, it's a list about the top 20 albums of each year of the last decade (the ones in MS), in my perspective of course. In this way, a lot of good albeit overlooked albums can get some exposure, in addition to covering more ground at the same time.

1. 2009
2. Sybreed - The Pulse Of Awakening
3. Ghost Brigade - Isolation Songs
4. Porcupine Tree - The Incident

InnerDoom

The wide spectrum of sounds expressed through the sub-genre of Doom Metal often gets overshadowed by the somehow inaccessible slowness that is in its nature and so DM doesn't get the recognition it deserves for being, in my opinion, one of the most flexible subgenres of Metal ... Because of that, Doom Metal has remained among my favorite genres of music since the time I was introduced to it through My Dying Bride's "Turn Loose the Swans".

1. Esoteric - The Maniacal Vale
2. Saturnus - Martyre
3. Lacrimas Profundere - Memorandum
4. My Dying Bride - Turn Loose The Swans
5. Process Of Guilt - Erosion

The Best Gothic Metal Albums

Note 1: This list will take time before it gets a definitive form (or it might take forever if good gothic metal albums will be released in the future).

Note 2: Another important feature is that this list will not take into consideration the Metalstorm way of labeling what is gothic metal and what isn't. Some albums have gothic metal elements yet they are not categorized as gothic metal. No hard feelings. I am also accepting suggestions as I might slip a couple of albums in the process.

1. Estatic Fear - A Sombre Dance
2. Tiamat - Wildhoney
3. The Sins Of Thy Beloved - Lake Of Sorrow
4. Tristania - Widow's Weeds
5. Theatre Of Tragedy - Velvet Darkness They Fear
