    Wow, I'm surprised Exuvia didn't even make the top 20. Was #2 on RYM and #8 on r/metal

    I'd have ranked it high had I listened to it on time.

    Too many out crowd voters afraid of black metal.

    Could be afraid of the label, but I'd consider it very accessible for a BM record.

    It's considered primarily a death-doom album on RYM.

    Yeah, not sure why. I don't pick up any dm vibes. I'd call it an Atmoblack/Doom/Tribal Ambient mix.

    With that many mixes of stuff, can it even be considered metal?

    Death-doom is a separate beast from death metal, so you wouldn't necessarily pick up dm vibes. But I confess that I haven't listened to the album that much, so I may not be the best judge.

    I looked at the genre votes for the album, though, and among those who voted "Atmospheric Black Metal" as a primary, the first name was Qwerty100. Since that guy's wrong about so much, perhaps people were reluctant to agree with him.

    RYM list updated with 1987, 1994, 1999, 2004, 2008.

    I stopped linking people's names to their RYM profiles because it was a hassle and this list is already a hassle.

    @no country for old wainds You gonna get this updated? Would save me (and others I imagine) a lot of searching / paging through threads. It's a great resource for stuff to check out.

    i dunno to be honest, it's so much work at this point, it'd probably take me a whole headache-inducing evening. if anyone else wants to post any of the final lists in the same format as the above then i'll certainly edit them into the OP though.
