    For me it's also impossible to make a list. I started three times atleast and always stopped. But I should try to do one again ;)

    Metallica - Master of Puppets
    Judas Priest - Painkiller



    These are my only 2 that need to be mentioned right off the bat. I would have to think about the others, just way to many so it will take some time to go all the way back from the early 80's to present day, only to pick just 10 albums.

    1. Edge of Sanity - Crimson
    2. Edge of Sanity - Crimson 2
    3. Opeth - Morningrise
    4. Opeth - Blackwater Park
    5. Green Carnation - Light of Day, Day of Darkness
    6. Anathema - Judgement
    7. Beyond Twilight - Section X
    8. Dan Swano - Moontower
    9. Ayreon - The Human Equation
    10. Paradise Lost - Draconian Times

    I just have to state Orphaned Land - Mabool in addition.
    Why?
    This is just one of the best Progressive Death Metal albums ever made.
    Everyone here should try it out <:
    And of course, I'm from Israel, and I have to promote my country's best metal.

    I could easily fill this up with all the Opeth albums, but then it would've been stupid :p
    So many albums that I needed to put here and couldn't... :(
    First 5 are for sure, but I couldn't decide if Crimson 1 or 2 should go first.
    Last 5 aren't really sorted, couldn't decide.

    Bump is exactly what you're supposed to do for this kind of thread, instead of creating a new one. Lets us see what people thought in 2004, 2008, etc. =)

    I think I posted here, but I don't know. I guess this is a revision then? Here's my list. I apologize for anything pre-1980 and lack of 80s stuff. I'm heavily biased to late 80s / 90s!

    In no particular order:

    1. Dan Swano - Moontower
    2. Dissection - Storm of the Light's Bane
    3. Amorphis - Elegy
    4. Dark Tranquility - The Gallery
    5. Mercyful Fate - Melissa
    6. Iron Maiden - Number of the Beast
    7. Cradle of Filth - Dusk and Her Embrace (yes, I know... fucking shitty band, but who will deny this is one of the most fucking amazing, metal albums ever made? I don't care how lame Dani Filth can get, this album is a masterpiece)
    8. Metallica - Master of Puppets (later lameness doesn't make this album any less amazing)
    9. Edge of Sanity - Purgatory Afterglow
    10. Therion - Theli
