PostSubject: All-Time Favorite Album (s)   Sun Aug 23, 2009 7:28 am

Well, I didn't see thread about this so I thought "why not" and I wouldn't use a poll because well, I think the reasons pretty obvious.

Pharaoh - The Longest Night
Messiah's Kiss - Prayer for the Dying
Heavens Gate - Livin' In Hysteria
Death - Sound of Perseverance
Wretch - Reborn


Anyway, what are yours?

Edit: Well, I've been listening to Ballistic for quite some time and goddamn, this is some quality US power metal right there. It's up there with the 5 aformentioned albums for sure.

Meh it's an infinite list, hard to say. Once again, I'll regret if I write something here. Luckily those can be edited Razz
A couple:

Master Of Puppets - Metallica
Back In Black - AC/DC
Paranoid - Black Sabbath
Silence - Sonata Arctica
Century Child - Nightwish

Just as I said it is an infinite list so they are not all and not the ultimate favorites.

Well, you know, you could make it a Top 5/10 bracket for every genre you have atleast 5/10 great albums in.

Some of my favorite albums of all time, not in order. It's something really interesting to do, you must think about which albums you REALLY like more than any other ones. It's not as easy as saying: I like everything lol!


Blind Guardian - Imaginations from the other Side
Wintersun - Wintersun
Ensiferum - Ensiferum
Ensiferum - Iron
Agalloch - Ashes against the Grain
Elvenking - Wyrd
Elvenking - The Winter Wake
Moonsorrow - Voimasta Ja Kunniasta
Sonata Arctica - Unia
Turisas - The Varangian Way
Draconian - Arcane Rain Fell

These are the albums i'll never get tired of. Yup, my favorite albums are all kinda popular in a way.

Popular or not, there are some really awesome albums you've got there. Although I like Battle Metal more, The Varangian way is an excellent choice. Ensiferum's Iron is another great pick.

Well, Battle Metal has more great songs than Varangian way, but I always thought The Varangian Way was more consistent. Each song follows well the other one, the production and the performence of Mathias(singer) are much better than the first album, and the quality of the story is much better than their lyrics of their first album. The Varangian Way will live whatever how old it will be. Still, Battle Metal was a solid release too.

I can see where you're coming from, Varangian Way has awesome songs following up on each other but Battle Metal's song in general of higher value imo. Songs like Battle Metal itself, One More, The Messenger, Rex Regi Rebellis and more are just awesome, even though they don't really a certain basis.

I can't say anything about lyrical content being better because I don't really mind "bad" lyrics. It's all about the music for me, so can't say anything about that part. But hey, both albums are awesome.

Oh yeah, saw them live once and the played both songs from Battle Metal and songs from Varangian and were equally amazing. They were even better than Dragonforce that night.

damn thats a quite difficult topic! Powerslave and Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son and all COB albums are definitely my favorite since i never get tired of them but i also love Ultra Beatdown, Ride The Lightning, Master Of Puppets, Once and many others. For me its just a matter of time before i get bored with some albums thats why i cant select any of them to have as an all time favorite.

I have 400 albums, that would still be pretty hard.

Well, I have to admit, at first I was actually planning on making a thread about the all-time favorite Power Metal albums, but I forgot to put it in the name.

Would that be a better idea?

I'd say personally, bearing in mind I'm fairly new to the metal genre, My top 3 would be:

Amon Amarth- With Oden On Our Side
Slayer- Reign In Blood
Marilyn Manson- Antichrist Superstar

I know Marilyn isn't metal, but I love that album.
