I'm a little drunk and I want your opinion here. Let's get to the point: If you're a fan of metal, you should be somwhat familiar with legendary Swedish musican and producer Dan Swanö. If you're not, that's ok too. Go do your homework and come back with an answer ;)

A very close three way tie between Spectral Sorrows, Moontower and Crimson I.

Good choices. Personally I'm a Crimson II guy but those would all rank highly for me. As well as Unorthodox.

I downloaded The Spectral Sorrows because of this thread, and it rips. :drool: how have I not heard this band before?

Unfortunately they're no longer around. Definitely check out the other ones that Wine mentioned too though. Crimson is amazing, it's basically one 40-minute song and Mikael Akerfeldt does some guest growls.

I loooooooooooooove long songs. <3

Yeah, I only knew Dan Swano from his production credits, but this is amazing!

Oh shit. This stuff is great. New to me as well. Spectral Sorrows sounds excellent with Dan Seagrave artwork to boot... :drool:

Thank you for the recommendation.

Glad you like it ;)

They really haven't released a bad album, although Cryptic is generally considered their worst by far because it's the only one without Dan Swano and the band wasn't really focused without him around.

Moontower is Dan's solo album and Crimson II was basically just him and a few guests, despite being released under the band's name.

I only heard Crimson 1 so I voted for that.

This is a damn near impossible question to answer, But I have to go with "Spectral." Edge of Sanity is absolutely classic shit.
