Best ''Sophisticated'' Extreme Metal Albums For 2010

Mainly avant-garde/melodic stuff. I think that these albums stood out because of their rsongwriting. These rrrrbands have proven they are capable of sophisticated and advanced rcompositions.
10 Dark Lunacy
Weaver of Forgotten

Melodic death that seems similar to lots of bands but after multiple listens reveals its exceptional
beauty. Clever songwriting, choruses, couples, bridges.
Scenes from hell

Avant-garde symphonic BM that is reminiscent of cult Japanese movies soundtracks. Brilliant and
clever use of horns enhance the atmosphere.
7Barren Earth
Curse of the Red River

This band includes ex- members of Amorphis. These guys created one of the best doom/death
albums ever. For fans of Paradise Lost, Amorphis, In mourning.
6Vulture Industries
The Malefactors Bloody Register

Avant-garde extreme metal at its best. The vocalist has one of the best male voices out there.
Axioma Ethica Odini

Words are useless, everyone knows this album.
4Throes of Dawn
The Great Fleet of Echoes

Awesome dark/doom metal that reminded me of Tiamat and Pink Floyd.

Progressive black in the vein of Klabautamann, Enslaved, Alcest. The psychedelic elements work
miracles for this one.
2Carach Angren
Death came through a Phantom Ship

symphonic BM from Holland with a haunting pirate atmosphere. The main advantage of this one is
the unusual chord progressions, the tight performance and the vocalist that succeeds as a
convincing storyteller
1 Transcending Bizarre?
The Misanthrope's Fable

Avant-garde/symphonic BM , fellow patriots of Septicflesh. While complex and strange at first listen,
this album contains some of the best melodies I have ever heard from a metal album. The bizarre
vocals are also outstanding.
