I don't want to give anything away, but if that's the case. I'm going to hell.

10.) King's X- Ogre Tones

King's X influenced me in a way that almost no other band could. Musically, lyrically, emotionally, in every way. Ogre Tones was the first KX album I ever bought. I bought it under sad circumstances when the music store, Sam Goody was closing up shop all across the nation and you were album to buy brand new CDs for $2.99 each. I bought about 20 albums that day and this was one of them, and the one that stuck out the most. To this day I know and sing along with every word of this album. The songs are heavy and powerful, all while being poppy and catchy. Although sadly I have yet to hear a song live from this album, King's X is one of the best live bands going today. If they come near you, I HIGHLY advise going. While I do feel this is one of their most underrated albums, I hold it in the highest regard. Any fan who started around this era should feel the same. Even if you have this album already, spin it again. It deserves it so much. And if you have yet to hear it, you are in for some Ear Candy (No Pun Intended...actually yes, Pun Intended)

Favorite Song: Sooner Or Later

9.) Cynic- Traced In Air

You saw Death and Atheist in this already, you know I had to add the other of the big 3 in 90s Tech Death Metal. But Cynic did something that Death and Atheist didn't do (or have the chance to anyways), go full on Prog. This direction really began over a decade after their first release Focus, with their 2nd release, Traced In Air. While many of the Death Metal elements are still present (mainly the screams) Cynic turned into a full on Prog Metal band and I couldn't be happier about it. Yes I am a newer fan of Cynic, I didn't even know about them until 2005. But the second this album kicks in, it blew me away. Technical without being wanky. Beautiful without being emo. And just all out Progressive Metal perfection. Paul Masvidal and Sean Reinert can do absolutely no wrong. And they've proven that with the 2 EPs that have followed this release. and their upcoming 2012 album. Cynic is one of the most peaceful Metal bands the world will ever know. It transcends above almost anything out there. While it is a shorter album, I wouldn't want it any other way. PLAY THIS NOW!

Favorite Song: Integral Birth

8.) Alice In Chains- Dirt

Debate me all you want...this is the best Rock album ever made. I hate most radio rock and what it has become, but back in 92, this album proved that Rock wasn't dead yet. Every song came straight from the heart. A very dark, heroin influenced heart, but be that as it may, it made this classic album what it is. You can't write this album with a sober mind unless you are deranged more then heroin could make you be. As someone who uses caffeine as a drug, this album, I can only look at this from the outside, and it's scary and hauntingly beautiful. It has a real ethereal feel from beginning to end. All while at the time having a modern Hard Rock feel through out. There is no reason why Alice In Chains should be labeled as a grunge band, they sound nothing like Nirvana, Mudhoney or Pearl Jam. They are a fucking Hard Rock Band, and always be one. This is the 2nd best album to come out in 1992 (the other is coming up soon), but this album is pure Dark perfection made in Radio rock form. have a listen and enjoy it.

Favorite Song: Down In A Hole

I'm not sure that I'd agree, but it's definitely in the top tier.

That's why I'm up for a debate

It's a pretty controversial statement, but I stand behind it 100%.

7.) Torche- Meanderthal

One album I'm sure most people wouldn't have expected on here (or even know of the band for that matter.) Torche is the definition of a variety Metal band. This album is exactly that, a variety Metal album. While it is layered in Stoner/Sludge Metal, it has so many elements of Prog, Pop, Doom, Thrash,m and Punk. No 2 songs sound the same from Torche...ever! This is the album that suckered me in. Oddly enough I first saw these guys open for Dredg back in April 2009 (what an odd combination eh?) But they made the show so damn good. Torche is slowly really starting to get their fanbase going, now landing the main support slow for Corrosion of Conformity this year. I will be there to see them. They've only gotten poppier and catchier from this album. But this album in particular showcases that so many styles in one album, can't be a bad thing.
