88 albums in total if I counted correctly of course and there's a few eps in there as well.


Albums that should have made my list but I haven't quite got to grips with yet.

Virgin Steele, Luca Turilli, Civil War. Degreed, Kamelot, Ironsword, Ten, Level 10, Burning Point, Damnation Angels, Borealis, Guardians of Time, Pantommind, Black Star Riders, Breaking Benjamin, Snakeyes, Majesty, Sacral Rage, Serpentine, Ensiferum, Bonfire, Jaded Star, Nightwish and a few more lesser known ones. Some of them are quite difficult albums and need more plays maybe to reveal their charms I dunno really if I have the will to go back and try again. I used a 7/10 rate as my cut off point for inclusion in my list. Quite a few 7/10 albums so in a final list those may get culled if I get round to listening to them again and seeing how it goes.

Deafheaven - Sunbather, an instant classic! It's already become my favorite black metal album of all time.
