burzum - filosofem, hvis lyset tar oss
continuum 2 (not metal but heavy as shit, a project with steven wilson and dirk serries)
cult of luna - fire was born (live dvd that is)
katatonia - night is the new day
meshuggah - nothing, catch 33, i
opeth - watershed, blackwater park
porcupine tree - (not a metal band but these albums are metal-ish) in absentia, fear of a blank planet, the incident
sunn o))) - black one, monoliths & dimensions

these are the only metal albums that i've heard so far that qualify for my "desert island" list.

Paranoid
Van Halen (deb)
Iron Maiden (deb)
Hard & Heavy (Anvil)
Secret Treaties
What's Next (Mahogany Rush)
A Farewell To Kings

^^^^^^^^
 
I deliberately avoided Zep, Aerosmith, Purple & Heep, because they're not really that metal
 
 
BTW, I noticed that the first six in my list are either the debut or the sophomore album in the group's discography.

Amorphis - Skyforger
Devin Townsend - Ocean Machine: Biomech

Those are the only two metal albums I would want to listen to for who-knows-how-long, based on their depth and the fact that I will be on that island for an indefinite amount of time.  I was actually going to make a desert island reference in my review of Ocean Machine, but it was never written.  I really gotta get around to doing that.
