Take this invitation, and join me for an adventure! The goal (my goal) is to keep up with, as much as possible, with the latest releases. The plan is to fill this yearly list with the (somewhat) best releases. I'll my best to keep this list updated, and I'll add albums I rated 3.5 and above with short commentaries and links. Also, to keep this more exciting, I'll share you a few of older releases which I find extraordinary good (basically some 5.0s I explore this year). Feel free to ask & discuss anything about the genre here! Cheers!
1Empyreal Forest

The resemblances in style and in aesthetics to Depressive Silence made me like this instantly. Feels really old-school!
My rating: 3.5
2Ancient Boreal Forest
Where Dragons Dream

Magical and mysterious melodies with BM aesthetics - just how I love it. Also, nice Summoning and Thangorodrim vibes!
My rating: 4.0
Jewel of the Moonsea

I greatly enjoyed this one. Despite the obvious and humble worship of the old-school DS, it also brings something new and unique without sounding generic and lifeless - and I greatly respect that. A bit more on the slower side of the genre, with serious atmosphere. Adventurious!
My rating: 4.0

Wow. Some otherworldy high production right here! Cinematically atmospheric, easily outshines many movie's soundtracks. Fantastic quality... the vareity of styles blended together, the production and composition...very well done, I'm impressed.
My rating: 4.5
5Medieval Rites
Norse Mythology: A Viking Saga

A heartwarming piece of medieval folk music with ambient vibes. Great producion and pretty melodies. This is one of those albums you want to play in the background when you're about to read a book.
My rating: 3.5
6Haunted Realm
Kingdom of Ages Past

I found this one surprisingly enchanting. It has a calm and melancholic, yet still cold and mysterious atmosphere, which I found very enjoyable. Very modern sounding samples and instruments, but this type of sound is what I also greatly enjoy.
My rating: 4.0

This is it, the most perfect winter synth album ever made. The mysterious, ancient and powerful aura which fills the entire album is indescribable. Magical.
[Released in 2004.] My rating: 5.0

Ethereal, calm and relaxing. I can't get enough from these aquatic-inspired droney releases!
My rating: 3.5
9Medieval Rites

Fief fans, assemble! This fills me with great joy. Beautiful and relaxing medieval ambient release.
My rating: 4.0

Very nice lo-fi dungein synth release. Respetful to the old-school: melancholic and enchanting melodies recorded straight to tape (I assume) - and that's it.
My rating: 4.0
Mysteria Arkana, Bd. II

Deep, dark and mysterious. Orkenblut's second release is a very interesting one with odd sounds and noises with an omnious atmosphere.
My rating: 3.5
The Sage of Witherthorn

Wonderful. A very-well composed and adventurous album. Very original sound and samples with an excellent production. Each song is very dynamic, which makes the album constantly "fluid" and dreamy.
My rating: 4.0
