Mik’s Top 100 Favourite Albums of All Time #61-65


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. 

#65 Bathory – Hammerheart

”Northern wind, take my song up high
to the Hall of Glory in the sky
So its gates shall greet me open wide
when my time has come to die…”

Song Of The Week: Summoning – Of Pale White Morns And Darkened Eves


The Austrian atmospheric black metal band Summoning released a new album a couple of months ago, titled ‘Old Mornings Dawn’. They are the masters of huge, epic and infectious music, always with lyrics deriving from the world of Tolkien. This song will give you a good idea of Summoning’s mysterious and alluring sound. I hope you enjoy it!
