    If I'd update, I'm sure Amon Amarth, Amorphis would be in it (and perhaps also Opeth)!

    1: Iron Maiden - A Matter of Life and Death
    2: Iron Maiden - Brave New World
    3: Opeth - Ghost Reveries
    4: Dream Theater - Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence

    With "1 album per artist/band" rule and in chronological order it should look like this:

    • Iron Maiden - Brave New World (2000)
    • Tool - Lateralus (2001)
    • Electric Six - Fire (2003)
    • Muse - Black Holes And Revelations (2006)
    • Metallica - Death Magnetic (2008)
    • Rammstein - Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da (2009)
    • Dethklok - Dethalbum II (2009)
    • Mastodon - The Hunter (2011)
    • Van Halen - Different Kind of Truth (2012)
    • Megadeth - Dystopia (2016)

    Honorable mentions: Halford - Resurrection (2000), Judas Priest - Angel of Retribution (2005), , Clutch - Psyhic Warfare (2015), Blind Guardian - Night At The Opera (2002), Machine Head - The Blackening (2007), Seasick Steve - I Started Out With Nothing And Still Got Most Of It Left (2008)

    With honorable mentions it still looks pretty week list, I probably forgot some artist/band...

    I can't tell you how much it warms my heart to see zero mentions of Kanye in this thread. I love this forum.
