To get some light into the dark world of music here is an list of my recommendations for you, so the metal-greenhorn can get an overview. These albums are (in my opinion) a good start into the profession (including MP3 for download).
There is also my current favourite album/titel.


Due to wide reminder charges regarding to MP3's and possible problems with the german GEMA I removed the examples from my site. If, when and in which form they will be republished is still unclear.
