10 Albums That Changed My View Of Metal

These are 10 albums that really blew me away and either broke down all of my notions of what I though a metal album could sound like, or really opened my eyes to new sub-genres. You'll notice most albums are from after 2006, that's because it wasn't really until 2007 or so that I started listening to metal.

1. Between The Buried And Me - Colors
2. The Ocean - Precambrian
3. Warning - Watching From A Distance
4. Mirrorthrone - Gangrene
5. Equilibrium - Sagas

Essential EPs

Some EPs out there are really just throw away tracks, and others are just demo tracks, but there are some EPs that are pure gold. These EPs are albums that despite lacking in song count, lack nothing in quality, and become an essential part of the bands discography, these are the EPs that I believe belong in that last category. These appear in no specific order.

1. Apothys - Advent: Doom
2. Disillusion - The Porter
3. Disillusion - Three Neuron Kings
4. Dream Theater - A Change Of Seasons
5. Ensiferum - Dragonheads

Albums I Believe To Be The First Of Many Great Ones

This is a list of debut albums from 2007-2009 that I believe are the first from bands that will leave a legacy of great albums in their wake. It's a short list, and I chose 2007 because I wanted to pick bands that have had at most only 1 album since the debut.

1. In Mourning - Shrouded Divine
2. Irminsul - Irminsul
3. Griftegård - Solemn, Sacred, Severe
4. Kalisia - Cybion
5. Baroness - Red Album

My Favorites Of 2010

This list isn't really in a set order except the first five, which really were just far and away my top 5. Then everything up to Aspera (or Above Symmetry as they are now called...I will keep it as Aspera for the list purposes tho, since that is who they were when the album was released) is the next tier. Everything after that is kinda in shambles. I tried to keep it to top 25 like my other lists, but there were some on the fringe of making this list, so feel free to check out my album votes for the near misses.

1. Alcest - Écailles De Lune
2. In Mourning - Monolith
3. Barren Earth - Curse Of The Red River
4. Enslaved - Axioma Ethica Odini
5. Mar De Grises - Streams Inwards
