Attn Metal Militia

Ok metal militia, since you wish to represent the mass of the metalheads on this website, there need to be some changes. No more poopy metal that you are all used to. These are 10 albums you will listen to, and you will love, this is not a request this is a demand, listen and enjoy.
1Wolves in the Throne Room
Two Hunters

This album destroys and USBM to date. No crappy vocals, no droning boring atmospheres, just amazing atmospheric black metal with great vocals and musicianship. Listen to this album and tell me it does not destroy bands like Leviathan or Xasthur.
Winds of Creation

As much credit as this album gets, I have not seen any of you on this militia talk about it. Superb technical death metal with nearly flawless playing. This stuff also happens to be brutal as hell and was made by people your age and younger, listen to it.
Autumn Aurora

If you claim to be a melodic black metal fan and have not heard this album your a failure at life. This album has indescribable atmosphere with soothing keyboard, solid instrumental work and fantastic vocals.
Songs of Moors and Misty Fields

This album is a gem in folk and symphonic metal. Amazing vocals and beautiful instrumental work, the folk elements are used just the right amount without overdoing it and the whole album has an epic feel.
Abigor - Nachthymnen (From the Twilight Kingdom)

Furious black metal with a mix of mild folk elements that make it an epic experience, incredible vocals from Silenius of Summoning also add to its value.
Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame

If this album does not make you feel heroic then you have no soul, this album is easily Summonings most epic and is perfect in every way.
Cause of Death

Yet another highly acclaimed album that none of you seem to talk about. Awesome old school death metal with kick ass vocals and solos. If you don't bang your head on the song Body Bag you lose.
The Gathering Wilderness

Hard to describe this album, you could call it folk metal, but it is so unique that may not even apply to it. Just know this is powerful music.
Into The Infernal Regions Of The Ancient

This is an epic black metal album, the vocals... yeah they are very strange but they fit well I guess, the instrumental work, especially the drumming rules.
Dance of December Souls

Probably my favorite Katatonia album, sorrowful and powerful. This is nothing like their new stuff though, it is doom metal with some black elements with some small but fitting and amazing keyboard use, amazing album.
