    An excellent (and difficult, haha) thread my friend! :) My top ten would be something like this although, since I'm feeling too lazy to attempt to order the selections, haha, they're presented in alphabetical order:

    Arkenstone, David - Middle-Earth
    Bal-Sagoth - Battle Magic
    Dimmu Borgir - Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia
    Elvenking - Heathenreel
    Ensiferum - Ensiferum
    Equilibrium - Sagas
    Eternal Tears Of Sorrow - A Virgin And A Whore
    Poledouris, Basil - Conan: The Barbarian Original Soundtrack
    Stormlord - Supreme Art Of War
    Virgin Steele - Invictus


    ... close enough for the time being, anyway! :cool:

    A worthy group of artists. Though I must say I prefer Dimmu's Enthrone Darkness Triumphant over PEM. Also the Ensiferum album is probably my number 11 or 12..

    Thank you! - Enthrone would probably be my second choice, however, over the years, I have found myself playing Puritanical more than anything else in their catalog and, considering the progression they made from Spiritual to that album, well, it's quite phenomenal, I say! :)

    What's this, Professor Oak? Someone else lurks the EToS forums? And a fellow Virginian!

    Anyway, yet another batch of great albums. Btw, have you heard Opeth's cover of Bridge of Sighs?

    indeed i have. but to be honest, the original cannot be touched, not even by opeth. i pull that vinyl out and listen to it regularly. nothing can compare.

    ^ ... I am ashamed to say I didn't even think of that. Not that I ever have the time to go out thrift-shoppin'. I might just look for it online somewhere... My vinyl collection is pitifully small at present :/

    I don't buy vinyl at all, for better or for worse, haha :saint: I used to work at an independent record store and, needless to say, vinyl was all the rage there, however, I never really caught on, since nearly everything I like, for one, isn't released on vinyl and, secondly, vinyl isn't as practical for listening, at least to me personally.

    its all preference. sometimes the crackle of the record adds to the music. Black Sabbath is great on vinyl. makes it sound even more brutal.

    i believe it. i dont have any Boston i dont think. most of my vinyl has been purchased based on chance. perhaps fate will grace me with a copy so that i can see what you mean.
