So I have decided to put these journals into region order. I say region as it won't go by one country as that would be stupid for starters and very hard to navigate through the journals. So I have split them into about 10 regions I think.
The first one is the Norwegian Scene, where it began to take off and it has gripped these parts much more than it has done in other parts of europe and the world.
Fr = formerly
Pl = placeformed
The Early Scene
1989 to 1994
Arcturus (fr Mortem)
Carpathian Forest (fr Enthrone)
Carpathian Full Moon (fr Pendulum)
Crest of Darkness
Darkthrone (fr Black Death)

41. R.U. Dead? - Promotape 
Okay, I know the band name is ridiculous, but just trust me on this one. This was a full-length demo and never saw a proper release, but it's one of the most astounding slabs of death metal I've ever heard. The band was formed by Uli Hildenbrand after the dissolution of Poison and continued largely along the same track, with a more refined sound that seamlessly merged Teutonic thrash with Autopsy-style doomy death, while also blazing a trail with sprawling compositions and classy guitar interplay. In a lot of ways, this band laid the blueprint for bands like The Chasm and Dissection. A true classic lost to time.
42. Internal Decay - A Forgotten Dream

Kontinual, editor of the Dark Legions Archive
"In underground metal, there is a youthful coalescence of seemingly disparate ideas, a syncretism. These are rooted in themes of heroism, warfare, death, the beyond, history, endtimes -- indulgent glimpses into worlds beyond the individual and the dreary present, and far from merely temporal or personal concerns. The approach is boundless and powerful, and the music matches."

This time, they're in chronological order
Sempiternal Deathreign - The Spooky Gloom 
Here's a band every Obituary fan should listen to and realize how foolish they've been to have worshipped that overrated tripe. Sempiternal Deathreign was probably the ORIGINAL death/doom band. This album came out a full two years before Autopsy's Mental Funeral, and one year before Winter's Into Darkness. Basically, it's really raw, ugly doom/death, influenced primarily by the likes of Hellhammer and Black Sabbath, as well as classic Teutonic thrash (Sodom, Kreator). And unlike the aforementioned Obituary, their solos AREN'T the only interesting thing about their music. There are some actually great riffs to be found in here. Songs range anywhere from 1:55 to 10:53, so there's plenty of variety here, as well.
Traumatic Voyage - Traumatic Voyage 
23 Nov 2008, 01:03 by baltech22This's just like... my opinion, man.
10. Mouth of the Architect - Quietly
There are plenty of bands playing this sort of atmospheric post-rock/sludge hybrid nowadays, but few do it nearly as well as MOTA. This record is a pretty major step up from 2005's The Ties That Blind, both in terms of musical maturity and songwriting. "A Generation of Ghosts" is a hands-down pick for song of the year.
09. Cosmic Atrophy - Codex Incubo
Copypaste from my last journal...
THE death metal album of 2008. Cosmic Atrophy are a duo out of Houston that does what nobody truly ventured to do - pick up where Demilich left off with their legendary Nespithe album. Codex Incubo is a bit on the short side but it does an amazing job of expanding on the ideas Demilich put forth 15 years earlier. Don't worry, though, it's not a clone by any means. …

As usual, these are in no particular order of preference.
21. Cosmic Atrophy - Codex Incubo 
THE death metal album of 2008. Cosmic Atrophy are a duo out of Houston that does what nobody truly ventured to do - pick up where Demilich left off with their legendary Nespithe album. Codex Incubo is a bit on the short side but it does an amazing job of expanding on the ideas Demilich put forth 15 years earlier. Don't worry, though, it's not a clone by any means. These guys are already hard at work on their next album, so there will more than likely be plenty more where that came from.
22. Torchure - The Essence 
Like early Morgoth and Bolt Thrower? You'll probably love this. Possibly the only one of the early German death metal bands not to turn assfuckingly gay in the mid-90s. Great atmospheric old-school death with both thrashy and doomy tracks…
