Mik’s Top 100 Favourite Albums of All Time #86-90
Posted by Irmelinis
A while ago, at the same time as Matt and Reggie, I posted my Top 100 All Time Favourite (Metal) Albums over at the forum The History of Metal on FB. It took a good amount of time and effort to put it together, but it was so much fun! My taste in metal is always changing, so the list will not always look the same. In fact, it’s already a bit different than it was when I first put it together and posted it on the forum seven months ago.
I tried to limit myself to three albums per band to make the list a little more diverse and interesting. I don’t really consider the ‘test of time’-factor when selecting what albums that will go on my list, instead I measure it by how strongly the album has affected me emotionally and how much/often it has helped me through both good and bad phases in my life. That’s why you can find quite a few newer releases among my favourites too.
# 90 Karnivool – Sound Awake
Great vocals, atmospheric music and lots of diversity from a band that always had a huge potential. One of the best rock bands in the world. At least in my world.
#89 Children of Bodom – Hatebreeder
Fast, melodic and fun. This is an album I listen to when I need a surge of pissed off energy. It was Children of Bodom at their best.
#88 7 Horns 7 Eyes – Throes Of Absolution
Beautiful melodic doom/death with sweeping melodies and a dark, sorrowfilled mood. Very powerful music and extremely talented musicians.
#87 Cradle of Filth – Damnation And A Day
There has always been room for a little Cradle of Filth in my life. I like their chilling, freaky style of extreme gothic/black metal and Dani Filth’s shrieking vocals. As always, the lyrics are fantastic.
#86 Oddland – The Treachery of Senses
A very ambitious progressive metal album, with soothing melodies and many fine moments. Very similar to Pain of Salvation at times, both in vocals and music, which is only a good thing.
