    Edge of Santity - Crimson
    Disillusion - Back to the times of splendor
    Green Carnation - Light of Day Day of Darkness
    Death - The Sound of Perseverence
    Orphaned Land - Mabool: The Story of the Three Sons of Seven
    Green Carnation - A Blessing in Discuise
    Amorphis - Tales From the Thousand Lakes
    Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors
    Opeth - Watershed
    Nightingale - The Closing Chronicles

    Communic - Conspiracy in Mind and Scar Symmetry - Holographic Universe come close to making this list.

    I have to retry this list and become frustrated...again. My first attempt was pretty terrible. Order doesn't count, because that would make things beyond difficult.

    1. Death's Design - Diabolical Masquerade
    2. A Virgin and a Whore - Eternal Tears of Sorrow
    3. When All is Said - Edge of Sanity
    4. Moontower - Dan Swanö
    5. Nightfall Overture - Nightingale
    6. Blackwater Park - Opeth
    7. Ghost Reveries - Opeth
    8. The Wacken Carnage - Bloodbath
    9. Above the Weeping World - Insomnium
    10. The Black Waltz - Kalmah

    Runner-ups:

    Empiricism - Borknagar
    Fear of a Blank Planet - Porcupine Tree
    Eclipse - Amorphis
    Heartwork - Carcass
    Swansong - Carcass

    Yes, I realize this isn't a top 15 albums thread, but I couldn't NOT include these.

    Edge of Sanity - Crimson
    Green Carnation - Light of Day, Day of Darkness

    You win the most unorthodox list award in this thread, hands down. And a two thumbs up for listing a Savatage album, my friend's mom used to LOOOOOVE that band (I think she still does, I just haven't seen her in 10+ years).

    Excellent choices!
    Heartwork came today in the post, cant wait to give it a spin

    I really need Empiricism too, Soul Sphere is a masterpiece of a song.

    When All Is Said is a great choice for this list, it means you can count 3 albums as 1 :)

    Haha, I know. Of course I did that on purpose. It's not technically cheating. I actually have Streets: A Rock Opera. It's a pretty fun album.

    Tough one...

    Opeth - Blackwater Park
    Bloodbath - Ressurection Through Carnage
    Opeth - My Arms Your Hearse
    Edge of Sanity - Crimson
    Opeth - Still Life
    Behemoth - Demigod
    Opeth - Watershed
    Dissection - Storm of the Light's Bane
    Opeth - Ghost Reveries
    Katatonia - Last Fair Deal Gone Down

    Well, they might not be the 10 best metal albums, but they are my favourite ones. Just so you know, I didn't give it a lot of thinking so probably if I would've taken 3 more minutes on this comment it would've looked so different...

    Yes, I am a big fan of Opeth and I highly recommend their music to all people that can relate to metal, if you peeps don't listen to Opeth already, that is.

    That's an interesting list L0bster.
    Django Reinhardt was really amazing guitar player for only having two usable fingers. Some good gems there in your list.

    haha fucker above me sinning : )
    leaving out Orchid and Morningrise is just absurd : /
    Opeth goes average after hearse for the most part. I like still life, most of blackwater, and damnation is really good. ghost rev and deliverance just so terrible

    Orchid is a great album, but so unpolished that it can't make the top 20. Morningrise is much worse IMHO! Still Life is on par with Orchid, Watershed a notch above and the rest are masterpieces :)

    impossible to make a list like this really, but of the top of my head, that's some of my most aprreciated and listened to CDs. I actually missed "Last Fair Deal Gone Down", its a brilliant brilliant album.
