    Trivium is like the Metallica of contemporary times, like it or not. It's not even a controversial opinion anymore. They've accomplished so much.

    1. What the Dead Men Say
    2. Sickness unto You
    3. Amongst the Shadows and the Stones
    4. Catastrophist
    5. Bending the Arc to Fear

    Sorhin - Apokalypsens angel
    Niden Div. 187 - Impergium
    Throne of Ahaz - Nifelheim
    Vinterland - Welcome My Last Chapter
    Mörk Gryning - Tusen år har gått...

    Top 5 would be mostly classics...
    Dawn - Nær sólen gar niþer for evogher
    Sacramentum - Far Away from the Sun
    Arckanum - ÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞ (much prefer this to their older stuff)
    Vinterland - Welcome My Last Chapter
    Dissection - Storm of the Light's Bane

    I don't really count Necrophobic - The Nocturnal Silence as BM but it has obvious elements and is an absolute pinnacle of that scene too.

    i'll throw another 5 gooduns in there that weren't mentioned yet:
    nastrond - toteslaut
    cromlech - and darkness fell
    sigrblot - blodsband (blood religion manifest)*
    vargavinter - frostfodd
    every nifelheim album

    sacramentum and vinterland are my top 2 though, with probably storm of the light's bane in third these days. i'm irrationally hyped for the new sacramentum album ever since they claimed it's gonna be their sequel to FAFTS.

    *trigger warning: may hate jews and commies

    Didn't mean to suggest cutting off at 500, just happened to be where #6 out of 5 went for me. At first I was thinking under 1000 and a list of 10 but lost the plot a bit.

    There's also Burial of the Rats with only 429 ratings, not quite a favourite but still hugely entertaining.

    2. Radie Peat (Lankum)
    3. Sharon Bascovsky (Derkéta)

    5. Dana Duffey (Mythic)

    1. Bolt Thrower - Those Once Loyal
    2. Voïvod - Post Society
    3. Vader - The Art of War
    4. Gorguts - Colored Sands
    5. Pagan Altar - The Room of Shadows

    yeah i just decided on that arbitrary cut-off point tbh. i'd highly recommend both 'when pigs fly' and 'candy mountain' to fans of early jarmusch, the former is directed by his wife. and 'romancing in thin air' is my favourite chinese movie ever, as great as meta-cinema can get.
