    I definitely agree with a lot the posts already mentioned so I'll try not to repeat too much.

    Some I'd like to add that I can think of at the moment are:

    Belenos - Errances Oniriques
    Borknagar - Quintessence
    Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult - Nocturnal March (this is 2004, but I think it still applies)
    Destruction - Metal Discharge
    Goatwhore- The Eclipse of Ages into Black
    Gojira - I'm really tempted to put "From Mars to Sirius" here even though that's breaking the rules but...
    Gorguts - Obscura
    Iced Earth - Horror Show
    Immolation - Close to a World Below
    Immortal- (just 'cause I need to state the obvious) Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism
    Crowbar - Sonic Excess in its Purest Form
    Earth - Hex: Or Printing in the Intern (I know 2005... I keep breaking the rules :[ but i totally see this album as "standing the test of time")
    Endstille - Fruhlingserwachen I mean this one might be a stretch as I don't hear much talk about Endstille to be honest.
    Katatonia - Discouraged Ones (I know this is '98 but... yeah.)
    Khanate - Khanate (This just might be just a personal favorite of mine, but anyone who's into drone doom always refer to this band and this album. It's brilliant but definitely not for everyone.)
    Kylesa - Kylesa
    Lykathea Aflame - Elevenfris
    Manilla Road - Spiral Castle *Absolute favorite Manilla Road album
    The Meads of Aspohdel - The Excommunication of Christ
    Melechesh - Sphynx ?? I'm not sure about this one but I definitely think they did something pretty different in this album.
    Nokturnal Mortum - NeChrist
    Oxbow - An Evil Heat
    Root - Madness of the Graves
    Rwake - If You Crawl Before You Walk, You Crawl Before You Die
    Shining - The Errie Cold
    Watain - Casus Luciferi
    Windir - 1184
    Ulver - Perdition City

    Sigur Ros - Odin's Raven Magic <- this isn't metal, but who cares at this point. Really awesome album.

    Hell yeah, I forget what we listened to, but I assume it was either Onyx or A Fallen Unicorn.

    You've said lots of stupid stuff before, but that has to take the cake. Nevermore in their prime were head and shoulders above their peers.

    I love Nevermore's 96-2000 period, but who exactly were their peers?

    Not really. I mean, I can still get down to some Nevermore, but they haven't really done anything that makes them stand out. I'd rather listen to Sanctuary.

    Into the Mirror Black, sure, but Refuge Denied is pretty average and only really stands out because of the cover and Mustaine connection. The Politics of Ecstasy was a much more interesting and original album for its time than that one.

    In 3 weeks you'll have to make a space for Blood's Dysangelium, and I'd probably prefer Katharsis' debut to some of those (wasn't big on Slough Feg but I haven't listened to them much), but you're about as right as it's gonna get in this thread.

    Eh, I've never really listened to 666, and I have no idea what Blood is.

    Those hail and antaeus albums are one and done listens. Nothing overly special about them.

    Reading this thread is kinda interesting, especially when someone who doesn't listen to predominately black or death metal posted. It's nice to get a different perspective for once.
