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

2014: From Professor JokeR's Perspective

I'll start off by saying that I wasn't planning on doing a list so early on in the year, but I've come across numerous albums that I'd like to share with people who enjoy my lists (or people who hate my lists).

This list will be a little different than my 2013 list. I created that list at the end of the year, and then decreased it to my Top 25 of 2013. This list will be a compilation of all 2014 albums I've come across and given a listen.

1. Agalloch - The Serpent & The Sphere
2. Artificial Brain - Labyrinth Constellation
3. Beyond Creation - Earthborn Evolution
4. Deadwood - Picturing A Sense Of Loss
5. Fen - Carrion Skies

A collection of all of my personal favorite black, black/thrash, black/death and black/doom metal. One album per band and in no particular order other than alphabetical. List will be updated semi-regularly so remember to stop by every so often!

The ★ signifies an album that is borderline perfect. Can you find them all?

1. The Short List
2. Anaal Nathrakh - The Codex Necro
3. Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors
4. Arckanum - ÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞ
5. Barathrum - Legions Of Perkele

2014, Now Featuring A Peanut Butter Burger!

Updates: December 10th, with Rishloo
You might as well call this the "shittier and more rambly version of mz's list with very few links to the artists."

What a year 2014 has turned out to be. My ratings are suspect- I have a tendency to over-rate things lately, so expect some calamitous drops in rankings soon. That being said, this could be my favourite one since 2009-- I haven't heard many great post metal albums this year, so please send me recommendations if you find any good ones (especially if they are reminiscent of Rosetta). No descriptions this time around- I'm far too busy and it makes for a more succinct list, in my honest opinion. I don't think my writing helps a lot of people out.

1. Qualeaceans - Capture of Ziz
2. Amogh Symphony - Vectorscan
3. Schammasch - Contradiction
4. Kayo Dot - Coffins On Io
5. Stoic Dissention - Autochthon

Coolingsrock's 2014 Albums (Not For The Hearing Impaired)

***UPDATED REGULARLY*** My List of Albums that I've Listened to in 2014. Order: Best to Worst. I listened to all of these albums at least a minimum of 3 times. I do my best efforts to listen to as many different types of metal as I can. I may rate albums higher then some would, but that's my opinion and at least I'm supporting bands, not hating on them.(not going to give out 1's and 2's cause I know it's hard work to put together these albums, unless it's just white noise of course).

1. Revocation - Deathless
2. Allegaeon - Elements Of The Infinite
3. Aenaon - Extance
4. The Kindred - Life In Lucidity
5. Hail Spirit Noir - Oi Magoi

Less Is More - Iron's 2014

This year, I will try to listen to less music more. That is, I won't go out of my way to hear and list every possible album I sort of dig on the first spin, and the ones I do include I aim to know thoroughly. A lot of the albums I include tentatively will probably get deleted, too. Without further preamble, interesting albums in no particular order:

1. Owen Pallett - In Conflict
2. Menace Ruine - Venus Armata
3. Pallbearer - Foundations Of Burden
4. Jenny Hval & Susanna - Meshes of Voice
5. Tuomas Henrikin Jeesuksen Kristuksen Bändi - Käkkyrällään

2014 - Leth's List Of Likables (Non-Metal Inclusive)

Pretty much every album that's caught my attention over the year, including non-metal. (Variety is a virtue, y'know )

I'll only be commenting on albums that I've given enough time to really form an opinion on. Chances are albums that failed to interest me beyond a first listen will eventually be removed from the list.

1. Swans - To Be Kind
2. Darren Korb - Transistor Original Soundtrack
3. Bent Knee - Shiny Eyed Babies
4. Gazpacho - Demon
5. Vampillia - My Beautiful Twisted Nightmares In Aurora Rainbow Darkness

Best Of 2014

So far, 2014 has been such an amazing ride in every respective field of music. Metal is no stranger, since its wide variety of sub-genres make this 2014 race and interesting one.
This list is 100% based on my personal taste and, while I try to listen to every genre and release, some are just way to Heavy for me so there probably won't be much Extreme stuff around here.

1. Major Parkinson - Twilight Cinema
2. Hail Spirit Noir - Oi Magoi
3. Agalloch - The Serpent & The Sphere
4. Triptykon - Melana Chasmata
5. IQ - The Road Of Bones
