Gothenburg!!!!!!!

The Gothenberg albums I have, ranked (almost impossible) Not saying they're the best, just the best that I own.rWhat other stuff like this should I get? Recs...
1Dark Tranquillity
Character


Brutal riffing and just classic DT, at their peak here. Even with the atmospheric keyboards this is an incredibly brutal album.
2In Flames
The Jester Race


Just classic Gothenburg metal, it pretty much all started with this album. In my opinion their best work, shame they couldn't keep this up!
3Soilwork
The Chainheart Machine


Another brutal and relentless album, never slows down from its ridicuously fast pace throughout. Soooo much better than their new albums, no 'clean' vocals on this album!
4Dark Tranquillity
Haven


Not as heavy perhaps as their others, but the use of keyboards is just amazing, unbelievably catchy and melodic songs
5Dark Tranquillity
Fiction


Whilst In Flames and Soilwork were releasing albums like 'A sense of purpose' and 'Sworn to a great divide', DT kept to their roots and released this masterpiece. They haven't let me down yet for near 15 years of proper Gothenburg music (haven't heard Into The Void yet though!)
6In Flames
Whoracle


Another classic In Flames album, but a few dissapointing tracks puts it a bit behind the rest.
7Dark Tranquillity
Damage Done


I think you've got the message that I love DT by now, and this is no exception.
8Insomnium
Above The Weeping World


Only just got into these guys, and they'd probably merit a higher place if I had listened to it more.
9In Flames
Clayman


Solid album, songs like 'Pinball Map' are great. Unfortuanately after this things went a bit downhill for the band.
10Insomnium
Since the Day It All Came Down


Great album too, Above the weeping world just a bit better in my opinion
11In Flames
Reroute To Remain


Not really the same sound as previous albums, but still an enjoyable listen once you've got used to it
12Dark Tranquillity
Exposures: In Retrospect And Denial


Interesting album this one: first half of the songs are unreleased songs from 1998-2002 ie. projector/damge done etc. The second half couldn't be more different and brings an incedibly heavy and depressing end to the album. No 'clean' vocals at all and just not melodic enough for my liking. Live disc is great: 19 of their best songs performed brilliantly
13In Flames
Come Clarity


Not a huge fan to be honest, although the title track is amazing.
14Soilwork
Sworn To A Great Divide


Dissapointed with this album, just not the same band as 'The Chainheart Machine'. Exile is OK, but apart from that...
15 ALSO...
Recs needed!


What else should I get???? Is 'Into the Void' worth getting??
