This is a difficult one, narrowing it down to ten, but I'll try my best. In no particular order:


King Crimson

The Mars Volta

Return to Forever

Jeff Buckley



Faith No More

Michael Jackson




A weird list, I know.


Edit: Not even gonna try highlighting just one album of each band, that's just impossible for me with most of them.

Not at all! Having a diverse list is better than having just one genre for sure

Absolutely agree, but some friends of mine think I'm nuts when I go from stuff like Emperor to Michael Jackson in a blink of an eye haha

Gonna list 15 here, as 10 isn't enough to encapsulate my favorites entirely. 15 isn't enough either, but its a more fulfilling number. Personally, i see this list as diverse. I highly recommend every one. Will also cap all of them with their respective genre(s). <3 Also! I will link one respective song from each album for you to preview. Along with anyone else. I encourage everyone who reads this to give all a look. \M/ Thanks fellas!

1. Stick To Your Guns - True View

2. A Day To Remember - Hard to pick.... but i'd go with  Homesick even if Bad Vibes is really close behind

3. Enter Shikari - A Flash Flood of Colour

4. Wolves At The Gate - Eclipse

5. Bring Me The Horizon - That's the Spirit .... Until future album comes out

6. Deaf Havana - All These Countless Nights

7. Polaris - The Death Of Me

8. Protest The Hero - Fortress

9. Like Pacific - In Spite Of Me ... Normally, this spot would be Neck Deep's, but with that turd they just threw at us, they're out.

10. Breathe Carolina - Savages  .... yup, guilty pleasure right there, but i love everything they do, even the most recent stuff
