The Top Ten

1 Diluvium - Obscura

YouTube comment on Obscura's Diluvium: "It is ironic that a band named OBSCURA has made everything so clear."
I couldn't agree more. - Metal_Treasure

2 Northern Chaos Gods - Immortal
3 The Outer Ones - Revocation

This happened to be a great album and the biggest Obscura contender by far. I made a list you can check out - Best Songs On Augury's Illusive Golden Age. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 The Book of Suffering, Tome II - Cryptopsy
12 Queen of Time - Amorphis

I wasn't sure what to do with this album - whether to include it in this list or not. It is pretty melodic and soft, and I would say it's kinda easy listening but at the same time it contains death growls (not all the time but often). Which makes it an extreme metal album. It doesn't sound extreme but you got what was my dilemma. Moreover, the album is very good. - Metal_Treasure

13 Beloved Antichrist - Therion
14 Liquid Anatomy - Alkaloid
15 Idol - Horrendous
