Here's the alternative list: http://www.listchallenges.com/metal-music-archives-100-alternative-metal

I got 59/100, and I purposely left out Limp Bizkit. After all, we don't want to scare people away do we? LOL

Folk metal has never seemed to get much love around here, so I'm not shocked by the low scores people are getting. 
 
Mind you, making the list made me realise there's a lot of well regarded bands/albums I haven't even heard yet (And also how much work the sub-genre needs Embarrassed).

Got 11. Wasn't expecting much though there were a couple of artists I do know that weren't there (Breed 77, Stone Sour) and one represented by an album I haven't heard (A Pale Horse Named Death).

Yeah, I also realized that I missed another quite popular band, Staind. I was just trawling through the alternative metal band list on the site and picking random ones along with albums I already knew.

I'm pretty sure some of the lists I've made have the odd major omission too. I wouldn't worry about it too much. Just save them for part 2 (I do actually have a black metal part 2 in the works already, as well as 2016 so far part 2).

Still to do the test, but would it not have been easier to do a search on the top 100 rated albums on MMA rather than randomly trying to select? Sounds a hard way to do it.

For the record, I'd have included LB. They may be shite but they sell a shed more discs than most bands do.

True, going through the top-rated would be a lot easier, maybe I'll do that next time I make a list.

18/100 on groove metal.

2/100 on symphonic. Didn't expect to do well on this one but there's another 10 or so bands that I have albums of in my collection, just not the ones on the list.

3/100 on folk. Not surprised really.

15/100 on alternative.

I'll be honest guys I use RYM as a secondary source to make my lists and then just add anything missing from MMA before publishing. Good way to find missing bands too. For example (for folk):

https://rateyourmusic.com/customchart?page=1&chart_type=top&type=album&year=alltime&genre_include=1&include_child_genres=1&genres=folk+metal&include_child_genres_chk=1&include=both&origin_countries=&limit=none&countries=

This is the longest challenge yet. It's also more of a personal one though. I've been building it on and off since I started with these lists and finished it today. 

This is my CD collection, up to date as of today. For that obvious reason I will not fill this one in myself, as my score would obviously be 100%. 

Note that the criteria is different on this list, I'm asking how many we have in common, as in you also physically own it (though not necessarily on CD). 

I own 260 of these.

Compiling my own list progress: 200 releases, and I just reached Anthrax... This might take quite a while!

Just a note here that new lists are in production, albeit slowly. There will be a second 2016 list at some point once enough albums are added (it's about 25% of the way there so far). I expect the next major genre list put up will be for doom metal.

I'm still hacking my way through my own collection. I haven't done a stock take in a while. Past 1200 and I'm in the G's...Dead

Finally finished my stupidly big list! Was expecting to clock in at just over 2000, and ended up with over 3000.Dead Would be very interested to see who has heard what. There's definitely something for everybody in it.
