A List Of Great Debut Albums

A lot of bands have great debut albums. Obviously this list is just a fraction of all the great debut albums out there, but it's a start. I'll keep expanding this list continuously, so all suggestions are welcome (granted they are featured on MS). All the albums here are ranked according to genre and then alphabetically. If a certain album belongs to the (in your opinion) wrong genre, then definitely let me know.

1. [Avantgarde]
2. Aarni - Bathos
3. Arcturus - Aspera Hiems Symfonia
4. Diablo Swing Orchestra - The Butcher's Ballroom
5. Sadness - Ames De Marbre

My Top 75 Albums Of All Time

My top 75 favourite albums of all time (initially it was a top 20 list, and after that top 50). Only 1 album per band. The list is in alphabetical order, so it doesn't represent explicitly which album is my absolute favourite (I don't have one). All albums on this list have earned at least a 9/10 rating. Albums with a star (★) have received a 10/10 rating from me. I've added genres and my favourite songs.

1. After Forever - Decipher
2. Agalloch - Ashes Against The Grain
3. Alcest - Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde
4. Amorphis - Tales From The Thousand Lakes
5. Anathema - The Silent Enigma

XIII

Best (the rest, and the worst) of 2013 (thus far).
Partially ordered (the ones with descriptions).
Subject to change, as I see fit.

The curtain call to another fascinating year for metal beckons. Far from disappointing, 2013 is marked by some outstanding releases from various genres, many of whom excelled well beyond expectations. A pretty diverse and intense outing has yielded a very large number of albums to this list, a fact that I take heart from, especially from the more unknown ones from both MS and outside, as many of the obscure findings have truly caught me by surprise. All in all, it has been good fun finding and listening to awesome and diverse music, from both inside and outside of my comfort zone. Lastly, a special thank you to everyone who helped making the list better, with corrections and recommendations and whatever else, and those who made their appreciation felt in one way or the other, as well as other list makers, from whom I siphoned stuff up from time to time.

1. Ulcerate - Vermis
2. The Monolith Deathcult - Tetragrammaton
3. Persefone - Spiritual Migration
4. Witherscape - The Inheritance
5. Eye Of Solitude - Canto III

Bibliophilia: Metal For Bookworms

A list for us bookworms, nerds, geeks, etc. Books are brutal and totally fucking metal.
This list lists books, poems, comic books, non-fiction and even movie adaptions of said books in some cases referenced to in albums (whether by concept, individual song or title).
This list is old. I started this way before The Epics, but never finished it. It's obviously not finished, so feel free to request. Initially, I was decided whether I should include songs based on stories from the Bible, but I'm leaning towards it. So expect that in a bit.

1. Ahab - The Call Of The Wretched Sea
2. Anthrax - Among The Living
3. Anthrax - State Of Euphoria
4. Avenged Sevenfold - City Of Evil
5. Blind Guardian - Somewhere Far Beyond

Hipster Heart - Iron's 2013

As usual, interesting albums of the year to be ranked and reviewed.

This time I'll make it easier for myself, and group weaker releases by genre as soon as I rate them. Expect only 5-3,5/5 to be ranked in order of preference, and possibly a 3,25 category if it's needed.

1. Torres - Torres
2. Subrosa - More Constant Than The Gods
3. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Push The Sky Away
4. Procession - To Reap Heavens Apart
5. Obscure Sphinx - Void Mother

Pretty self explanatory. Although I usually forget to keep these kinds of lists up all year so we'll see if I keep this one up all year or forget about this one too after a couple months...

*This list is not in order of preference, just the order in which I add the albums so as to make it easy to identify the most recently added albums.

1. Abyssal - Novit Enim Dominus Qui Sunt Eius
2. Amiensus - Restoration
3. Lascaille's Shroud - Interval 01: Parallel Infinities - The Inner Universe
4. Katalepsy - Autopsychosis
5. Octopus - Into The Void Of Fear
