What a wonderful year, I have to say! This year has seen me expand my tastes like never before. Discovered so many great new acts, while many metal stalwarts delivered the goods as expected. A truly memorable year, and one that I will forever cherish, as far as me being an avid music enthusiast is concerned.

Gloom, Beauty & Despair:Top Doom Metal Albums Of All Time And Counting...

Here is a list of my chosen top doom albums of all time. This is not the stereotypical doom that is used by people nowadays. Rather, the focus is on the true aspect of the music, i.e. feelings of gloominess and despair expressed in a hearty and beautiful manner through music, the music that evokes wonderful emotions! For true doom metal fans out there!!

1. Swallow The Sun - Hope
2. Swallow The Sun - New Moon
3. Slumber - Fallout
4. Mental Home - Black Art
5. Daylight Dies - Dismantling Devotion

Top 50 Epic Songs (10+ Minutes)

My top 50 favourite tracks that are 10 minutes or greater. The list probably changes order depending on my mood, but I'm pretty happy with this one. I have left out songs from some big prog rock bands like Rush, Eloy and Pink Floyd. I didn't want to limit each band to 1 song as many of them have far too many "epic" tracks to ignore.

1. Helloween - Keeper Of The Seven Keys Part II
2. Lost Horizon - A Flame To The Ground Beneath
3. Virgin Steele - Invictus
4. Iced Earth - Burnt Offerings
5. While Heaven Wept - Vast Oceans Lachrymose
