Mik’s Top 100 Favourite Albums of All Time #81-85


Top100

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. 

#85  At The Gates – Slaughter of The Soul

This is still one of the best melodic death albums in the genre’s history. Relentless, heavy and guitar-oriented. At The Gates was a band that made melodic death metal what it is today. Too bad they broke up after this release.

Mik’s Top 50 – Intros That Instantly Grab My Attention #41-42

#42 Edguy – No More Foolin

“No more foolin’
you will save all your love”

An excellent intro and song where Edguy lets the guitars do the talking. This song can be found on their third full-length ‘Vain Glory Opera’ from 1998.
