Albums That Defined My High School Years

Not nessecarily the best albums, but these were some of my rfavorites from high school with rrrrrrrmost remaining as such, and they rall surved to be very important factors in my life.
1System of a Down

The first album that introduced me to heavy music, and one of the first albums I could listen to
beginning to end. Not so much a fan now a'days but its importance can't be ignored
2System of a Down

Favorite band when I was 14.
3Killswitch Engage
Alive or Just Breathing
4In Flames
Come Clarity

Teen Angst.
5In Flames

Blew my mind, and revolutionized the way I listened to music in my first year of high school. Was my
favorite album for years.
6In Flames

In Flames were my favourite band up until my discovery of My Dying Bride in Grade 11
7Scar Symmetry
Symmetric in Design

The contrast between brutality and melody was really appealing in my discovery of metal.
8Dark Tranquillity
The Black Halo

When this album was originally released, it really moved me and stayed in my stereo for months.
10Blind Guardian
Imaginations From the Other Side
Blackwater Park
Ashes Against the Grain

Introduced me of the importance of atmosphere in music, and was unlike anything I had heard at the
Blood Mountain
In A Flesh Aquarium

Blew my mind, and still have yet to hear an album as chaotic and weird as this.
The Sham Mirrors

I was obssessed with this album when I was 16. The crazy spacey keys and vocals made this album.
Remains one of my favorite albums to this day.
19Faith No More
Angel Dust

I went through a huge Mike Patton phase in Grade has yet to go away.
20Mr. Bungle
Mr Bungle
21Alice in Chains

A band I had loved for ages, but never truely understood until I matured a little. Remains one of my
favourite albums of all time.
22Type O Negative
October Rust

When I first heard Type O, I hated it. As time went on they became one of my favourite bands of all
time. This is the album that helped that.
23Paradise Lost
Paradise Lost

This could easily be any Paradise Lost album..
Last Fair Deal Gone Down
25Swallow the Sun
Ghost of Loss
Arcane Rain Fell
27Fields of the Nephilim
28Arcade Fire
Neon Bible

When my obsession with My Dying Bride was at its peak, I really opened my mind to alot of non-metal
music. The Arcade Fire was the biggest amoung them, and when I wasn't enjoying MDB, I was listening
to them.
29My Dying Bride
Turn Loose The Swans

was tied with The Dreadful Hours as my favorite album ever. A dark, beautiful masterpiece that moved me
in ways most music couldn't. My senior years were pretty much soely dedicated to this bands discography as
they were abit of
an obsession for my
last two years of high school, so as such they take up alot of the list...
30My Dying Bride
The Dreadful Hours
31My Dying Bride
The Angel and The Dark River
32My Dying Bride
Like Gods of the Sun
33My Dying Bride
Songs of Darkness, Words of Light
34My Dying Bride
A Line of Deathless Kings
35My Dying Bride
For Lies I Sire
