Promo's Picks Of The Passing Decade

Actually I wanted to write a blog as several of my colleagues, but now that we have this nifty new feature there's no reason to bother with formatting all the pics and stuff

So this was it. The decade which saw me turning into a metalhead. Actually I've been listening to metal since 17 years now, but not on a regular basis. This changed (to the better) when I joined this site in the good old days of MSR. Agalloch, Anathema and Tristania got me used to growls, Immortal and Agathodaimon to extreme metal as a whole and soon enough I was hooked to the vast plethora of styles which are to be found in heavy metal. The following list presents my personal top 50 of this decade. The order isn't really set in stone, neither is my musical taste, but at least the top 10 are somewhat fixed. Especially the 2009 releases, of which none made it into my top 25, might not stand the test of time. And please don't message me because you disagree with some of the genres, they are neither there to be discussed nor to educate, but to give an impression what the bands sound like. If you have about the same (broad) taste as I have, but aren't familiar with some of these releases, try to get your hands on them. You won't regret it

1. Negură Bunget - OM
2. Agalloch - The Mantle
3. Redemption - The Origins of Ruin
4. Dark Tranquillity - Character
5. Anaal Nathrakh - The Codex Necro

My Favourite Albums Of All Time, Vastly Melodic.

These are my favourite albums of all time, the best being first. This is obviously all my own opinion, so please don't shit all over my musical tastes, especially since I am a fan of melodic music, which a lot of people don't seem to like anymore. All these albums have touched me in one way or another and they are all albums I can listen to again and again without ever getting bored.

1. Iron Maiden - Brave New World
2. Katatonia - Night Is The New Day
3. Sentenced - The Cold White Light
4. Wintersun - Time I
5. Omnium Gatherum - Beyond
