Solitude Aeturnus - Into The Depths Of Sorrow (1991)

Genre: Doom Metal
Country: United States

If a power metal band decided to make a doom metal album, it would sound something like this. It lacks the gayness of power metal, though, so don't worry.

Heaven Shall Burn - Whatever It May Take (2002)

Genre: Metalcore
Country: Germany

This album makes you want to pick up an AK-47 and overthrow the government. Whether that's a good or bad thing is up to you, but to me it's oh so satisfying.

Leech - Ten Black Hymns (2005)

Genre: Cascadian Black Metal
Country: United States

Another spawn of the growing Cascadian black metal scene, Leech stand alongside Ash Borer and Fell Voices as one of the best acts to play the sound. Ten Black Hymns is by far Leech's best effort, the pinnacle of their handful of impressive releases.

Olafur Arnalds- ...And They Have Escaped The Weight Of Darkness (2010)

Genre: Neoclassical
Country: Iceland

Icelandic gentleman Olafur Arnalds is a brilliant composer. His piano-driven pieces are a definition of atmosphere, providing a dark but rewarding neoclassical soundscape that is all-encompassing. If you even think you'd like this, I highly recommend taking a listen.
