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.
#25 Orkenkjott – Onskediktet
‘Onskediktet’ is a really odd, proggy debut album from Norway, with influences from 70’s prog but with a heavier sound. It feels very middle-eastern at times, and it’s not only because the band is called “desert meat” and claim they play “desert rock”. They have an extraordinary vocalist whose voice takes some time to get used to, but I like their unique style, with many weird and amazing moments.
