Opening up my top ten with...

10. Devoid - Dark Lunacy

Take My Cry: http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=FrdI0KVrGL0

Devoid is easily Dark Lunacy's roughest effort, even when considering Weaver of Forgotten. It's unrefined in both metal and melody, its production is incredibly spotty and songs themselves have some strange song structures, often topped off with song lengths that should have been trimmed down by several minutes. In spite of this, or perhaps because of it, Devoid is an amazing album with some of the greatest melodies Dark Lunacy has ever produced and is easily Dark Lunacy's heaviest album in spite of the fact that it's also their most melancholic. The album is bogged down by a slow start, namely a solid, but uneventful set of opening tracks, but eventually transitions into what clearly serves as a reminder of what this band would eventually become. The album's end is significantly greater than its beginning, culminating with all three of the example tracks and more notably with Take My Cry, whose end is quite simply the greatest thing in the history of melodic death metal. Devoid is incredibly rough, but manages to be a great listen, if not a slightly inconsistent one.

Next album is contested within the band's fandom, and I have no **** idea why outside of the fact that "hur, it isn't br00tal nuff."
