    I think no skills in German are needed to "understand" this clip.

    THE ALL TIME FAVOURITE ALBUM TOP-100 BY NW FORUM MEMBERS

    Since Metallica's biggest commercial success does absolutely nothing for me, I replace their "Black Album" at no. 8 by the album which got me into (Thrash) Metal way back in 1984, namely Metallica's "Ride the Lightning". I'd say that with the exception of "Escape" and "Trapped Under Ice", I'd rate all the songs 10/10 (or at least 9,5/10). I think that way back then, I listened to this album at least once each day for more than a year. I love(d) the overall sound, the aggression in songs like "Fight Fire With Fire" (the first Metallica song I ever heard) and "Creeping Death" and Kirk's guitar solos. Nowadays, it's the only Metallica album I still listen to every once in a while.

    Midnattsol

    Finally a new song by Midnattsol from their upcoming album "The Aftermath", even though it is "only" a traditional Swedish ballad and not a newly written song: I like the arrangement, though I think it's a bit too long and I'd say that as far as the overall atmosphere is concerned, I still like Garmarna's version with Emma Härdelin's rawer/less "polished" vocals a bit better. I'm curious what the other new songs will sound like and I'm pleased to see that - at least judging by their titles - four of them will have Norwegian lyrics.

    THE NW-FORUM'S FAVOURITE TOP-100 SONGS OF ALL TIME

    I'm a bit surprised to see that we're still at the beginning of March and some people have already used up about half of their possibilities to make changes. However, it's time to go for Nightwish's "Crownless" at no. 3 which I replace by Kari Bremnes - "Skrik" This time it's the studio version which sounds a bit different from the live version I posted earlier in this thread, but which I like about as much, not only, but also because of the great guitar-work.

    THE NW-FORUM'S FAVOURITE TOP-100 SONGS OF ALL TIME

    Just for clarification: Do we get the 15 possibilities in addition to the changes we have made so far or do the latter already count as part of the 15 possibilities?

    Songs with great guitar solo's

    My favourite Helloween song from their debut EP (and one of my four overall favourite Helloween songs): Solos from 3:51 to 4:50 and 5:10 until close to the end. I especially like the tapping twin solo-part starting at 5:22.

    Anneke van Giersbergen

    Nothing against Anneke, but as far as this song is concerned, I definitely prefer this version:

    THE NW-FORUM'S FAVOURITE TOP-100 SONGS OF ALL TIME

    I replace Blind Guardian's "And Then There Was Silence" at no. 2 by Helloween's "Ride The Sky". For me, "And Then There Was Silence" is a good example that "long" doesn't automatically mean "good". There were a few decent parts here and there, but most of the time I got the feeling that this song is just dragging on. At first I thought about replacing it by Helloween's "Halloween" which is about as long, but which I find far more enjoyable, but then I chose "Ride The Sky", one of my four overall favourite songs by Helloween. I love the pure energy of this song, the raw guitar sound (bordering on Thrash Metal) and the great guitar solos.
