OK, difficult for most of us I imagine (was for me) but I just had to do it:

Top five favorite metal albums.
Could pick 50 but I really thought deep about those on a different level, and then the ones that touch me most out of those.

Mine (no order)

Toxicity - System of a Down
Elvenefris - Lykathea Aflame
Individual Thought Patterns - Death
Rust in Peace - Megadeth
The Mantle - Agalloch
Megadeth, Metallica, Slayer and Testament. The real Big Four of thrash metal!



Listen to doom metal, worship Satan

You know Ben, those are actually 6 albums. LOL

Right now, i can't number them. Would have to weight a lot of stuff to even think about a list. Ayreon and Dream Theater would be there, but there are a lot of other artists. . .

I couldn't reduce my top metal albums to a top hundred, let alone a top five!!! Shocked LOL
 
Off topic: I am intrigued by your list and your musical journey Jonas, especially how other genres affected your taste. Interestingly my tastes were very much affected by similar things, the sheer brutality of the likes of Napalm Death to the grunge era and (strangely enough)Trip Hop. Massive Attack, Faithless, Bjork, Portishead, Tricky et al brought a whole new dimension to my listening experience.

Yeah but in the last 5 - 10 years its like the circle is closed and Ive returned to my metal roots more and more. With my involvement on MMA, that development will probably only continue. But who knows I might grow tired of metal again sometime in the future like I did in the mid to end of the nineties. Ill never grow tired of the albums that I consider classics though.

I really couldn't give my top 5 metal albums right now.  It constantly changes.  Probably the most consistent presence on the list would be Master Of Puppets, although there is still the odd day where I convince myself that Justice is the superior Metallica album.

Since my top five naturally changes, I'd pretty much say anything I've rated here (or will rate) that I give as much as 3.5 out of 5 or more has a shot at any given day of cracking the top 5.  Sad Wings of Destiny is up there, so is Symbolic (Death) , Heartwork (Carcass), the first 5 King's X albums (the debut probably to a lesser extent), and many others.

Can't quite do 5, but I can pick 10 with some difficulty...

1. Pain of Salvation - The Perfect Element
2. Dream Theater - Scenes From a Memory
3. Edge of Sanity - Crimson
4. Opeth - Still Life
5. Death - Symbolic
6. Iron Maiden - Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
7. Pain of Salvation - Be
8. Queensryche - Operation: Mindcrime
9. Dream Theater - Images and Words
10. Pain of Salvation - Scarsick

There are tons of other albums I love, but these albums are simply among my all-time favorite metal releases. Also, it's no coincidence that Pain of Salvation was featured three times. Tongue

My top 5 metal albums:

1. Colors - Between the Buried and Me
2. Annihilation of the Wicked - Nile
3. Images and Words - Dream Theater
4. Sol Niger Within - Fredrik Thordendal's Special Defects
5. s/t - Animals as Leaders

By this site's standards I should have Tool's Lateralus and NIN's The Downward Spiral on there, but I personally don't think they're metal. But that's an argument fit for a different thread. LOL
Lost respect for these archives when I saw Creed added, among other bands. Not going to be foruming here anymore. You can keep my reviews if you want.

I love A Pleasant Shade of Gray!! Thumbs Up

It's easily one of my favorite FW albums, and it's often overshadowed by some of their other works.

Pretty hard to choose 5 in any sort of true order without thinking of 100 others that could fall within the top 5,  but here are 5 favorites:
 
1. Ayreon - The Human Equation
2. Motley Crue - Shout At The Devil
3. Metallica - Master of Puppets
4. Twisted Sister - Stay Hungry
5. Queensryche - Operation: Mindcrime

Just two short comments for the friends Umur and Stooge:

Of course I'm a hardcore fan of Alice In Chains. I've always consider them as the best band of the scene of Seattle and speaking personally I was never care if people called them Grunge, Alternative or Super Duper Post Metal. For me Alice In Chains are an original Hard Rock/Metal band with some psychedelic and post-punk influences. And as about "Dirt" maybe it's their best album. And you don't have so often the opportunity to hear songs like "Rooster".

My friend Stooge I totally agree with you.
It is a pity that this album is not attracted people's attention as other albums by this band like "Parallels" for example. I've see them live at the tour of "Pleasant Shade Of Gray" album and the band just played fantastic.
