Beginner's Guide To Building A Prog Collection (Standards, And A Few Unorthodox Choices)

Limited to one album per band and only those featured on Metal Storm.
I feel these albums demonstrate certain qualities that can be of enjoyment to someone who is interested in avantgarde, experimental, extreme, fusion, jazz, post rock, and technical forms of metal.


1. Jethro Tull - Thick As A Brick
2. King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King
3. Rush - Moving Pictures
4. IQ - The Road Of Bones
5. Opeth - Still Life

My other lists:
Tasty Stuff Not Currently Featured On MS

A concise list of my metalhead man-crushes (now featuring ladies.)

While there is little introduction required for some of these bands and their front(wo)men, there are no words that can accurately describe such jaw-dropping talent anyhow. The albums and youtube links listed are meant to display the full capacity of vocalists' talents, not the bands' most quality or popular tracks - click the links below and behold the prowess.

1. Abstrakt Algebra - Abstrakt Algebra
2. Adagio - Underworld
3. Akercocke - Words That Go Unspoken, Deeds That Go Undone
4. Amorphis - Silent Waters
5. Anaal Nathrakh - Vanitas

2012: Towards The Megalist

I'm (sorta) back. *The Finishing Touches* OKAY, so obviously not as much stuff from the last half of the year as the first. Sorry guys, but that first six months nearly killed me. Some stuff as a result will be missing, but major stuff not present is stuff I probably didn't care for. Alrighty then, enough with the "stuff"...

1. Bound by Entrails - The Stars Bode You Farewell
2. Royal Thunder - CVI
3. Akphaezya - Anthology IV: The Tragedy of Nerak
4. Dissona - Dissona
5. Anhedonist - Netherwards

2012 Dreamy Albums Milena Considers A 7.5+ (update 26.12)

Other good lists with some melodic metal in them:
strade's - R'Vannith's - Unhealer's - Lkoturnindrin's

Will only add 7.5+ releases, so this won't be a gargantuan list... last year saw maybe forty or so releases I thought of as 7.5+'s, a lot of them rated only at the end of the year, and some not rated at all due to the extensiveness of pre-MSA listening sessions... if you want to stalk my "bad" ratings, they're all in my album votes.

1. Enochian Theory - Life... And All It Entails
2. Dissona - Dissona
3. Big Big Train - English Electric 1
4. Headspace - I Am Anonymous
5. Beyond The Bridge - The Old Man And The Spirit

Favorite Albums By My Favorite Bands

I picked one album by each of my favorite bands for this list. Keep in mind that after the first few albums I put on the list, it became increasingly difficult to figure out where to place artists in my list. Also, this is kind of how my favorite bands lie now, as far as how often I listen to them - whereas some of these bands used to be much more frequently played, years ago. But this is, more or less, a list of my favorite albums by my favorite bands.

1. Dream Theater - Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory
2. Seventh Wonder - The Great Escape
3. Symphony X - The Odyssey
4. Circus Maximus - Nine
5. Haken - Visions

3. Circus Maximus - The 1st Chapter
4. Opeth - Blackwater Park
