A List Of Great One-Man Band Albums

Creating good music might not be an easy task, but most bands in existence consist of multiple members who contribute to the music. One-man bands however are simply musicians who create the music all by themselves, which, in my opinion, is very impressive. Because of the fact that there are quite a few of these talented musicians, I created this list. Of course there are many more one-man band albums than I have listed here and that's why I'm open to suggestions. So be sure to give me recommendations and also let me know if I listed the "wrong" album by a band (in your opinion). Lastly, the list is ranked according to genre and then alphabetically. I only add 1 (full-length) album per band (and only albums that are featured on MS).

1. [Avantgarde]
2. Aarni - Bathos
3. Brown Jenkins - Death Obsession
4. Cloak Of Altering - Ancient Paths Through Timeless Voids
5. De Magia Veterum - The Divine Antithesis

Diverge's Alternative/Prog/Jazz/Avant-Garde Favs

LATEST EDIT: March 27/2016- Added a whole bunch of progressive rock albums; processing earlier suggestions on the list.

Assembled below are some choice selections in alternative metal, prog rock, prog metal, jazz and avant-garde metal. I don't necessarily consider these styles to be my favourite (I do have a penchant for post-metal and cavernous death metal these days), but they have been the foundations of my taste for the last seven or eight years.

1. ALTERNATIVE METAL & GRUNGE SELECTIONS
2. Soundgarden - Down On The Upside
3. Rishloo - Living As Ghosts With Buildings As Teeth
4. Karnivool - Asymmetry
5. Blindead - Absence
