The Best Of Dissonant Metal

Metal art of dissonance as I love it.
Rules:
- on album per band, unless the band has very different albums.
-I'm not picky for albums released before 2000.
-I'm not picky for genres that are to some degrees unusual for the dissonance, like sludge metal.

This list is open to suggestions.

1. Abyssal - Novit Enim Dominus Qui Sunt Eius
2. Alkerdeel - Morinde
3. Altars - Paramnesia
4. AMNIS NIHILI - Christological Escalation
5. Antediluvian - λόγος

Mz's Favorite Black Metal Albums

Hey everyone.
I used to avoid Black Metal for long since I considered BM musicians as "a bunch of monkeys, wearing corpse paints in a dark frost and pretending to hate humanity". Fortunately, some of them have proven to be more than that. My interest in Black Metal is progressively increasing and now I consider it to be one of the most divers metal genres, among with doom metal. Black Metal albums with experimental elements are more likely to appease me. Admittedly, this list shares a lot with my previous lists.These albums are included to indicate my taste in this genre. One album per band, unless the band's album have very different sound .The main aim of this list is to gain recommendations.

1. Aderlating - Spear Of Gold and Seraphim Bone Pt.1
2. Agalloch - Ashes Against The Grain
3. Alkerdeel - Morinde
4. Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors
5. Arizmenda - Within The Vacuum Of Infinity...

mz's Most Favorite Progressive Metal Albums

Progressive metal is one of my most favorite musical genres. The most interesting thing about this genre is the musical flexibility and the fact that progressive metal can come into different forms and this makes progressive metal one of the most divers genres of metal. For me, progressive metal is not just about stupid technicality and soulless show off. For this reason, my definition of progressive metal might be a little different from others. Progressive rock and metal were meant to put aside musical boundaries but nowadays it seems that being complex, technical, "intelligent", ambitious and pretentious is an inherent quality of prog metal genres. Screw this bullshits. Here are my most favorite prog metal albums. They might sometime be technical and complex but they all have their own soul in my opinion.

1. Tool - Lateralus
2. Opeth - Still Life
3. Nevermore - This Godless Endeavor
4. Green Carnation - Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness
5. Mayhem - Ordo Ad Chao

mz's Favs

These are the albums which I like the most. Since I have not listened to a lot of albums( let's say, max 400 for me), it would be pretentious to make a list of my 100 favorite albums, so I keep this list short.

1. Tool - Lateralus
2. Esoteric - The Maniacal Vale
3. Lurker Of Chalice - Lurker Of Chalice
4. Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven
5. Blut Aus Nord - The Work Which Transforms God
