1.
An incredibly brilliant melodic death metal act that hails from Gothenburg, Sweden. Their talent for harmonic composition is unparalleled by anyone since Beethoven, as best exemplified by their 1995 release, The Gallery. Formed in 1989, their lineup has remained fairly stable compared to other Swedish acts.

Members:
Mikael Stanne - Vocals, former guitarist
Anders Jivarp - Drums
Niklas Sundin - Guitar
Martin Henriksson - Guitar, former bassist
Michael Nicklasson - Bass
Martin Brandstrom - Keyboards, electronics

Former Members:
Anders Friden - Vocals (now in In Flames)
Fredrik Johansson - Guitar
Uneducated metalhead: Man, Gothenburg metal sucks. It's all commercialized, uninspired crap nowadays.
Me: Obviously you haven't heard of Dark Tranquillity.

The second-best metal album ever made, behind only Dark Tranquillity's The Gallery. Recorded in 1995 by In Flames, it stands as their seminal accomplishment seconded by 1994's Lunar Strain and 1997's Whoracle. A true testament to spectacular riff-writing and guitarwork, every song has at least three distinct riffs, with a very dynamic lead guitar and a strong rhythm guitar and frequent double leads in parts. The vocals are powerful but not spectacular in any way and the lyrics are closer to poetry than 99% of music gets. The drumming is very fast and clean, but the drums and bass tend to make way for the guitar, which is clearly the highlight of the album and of In Flames in general, at least up until 2002's Reroute to Remain. A true testament to the riff- and solo-writing prowess of Jesper Stromblad, and a fantastic journey into another land, where creative and unrepetitive music reigns supreme. When combined with the 1996 EP Black-Ash Inheritance, it becomes an even better album simply due to the addition of In Flames's best song they ever wrote, Goliaths Disarm Their Davids, an epic track that stands out on an album that is nothing but epic tracks. A must-have for any fan of metal.
Man 1: In Flames is obviously a shite band. Clearly they're just another commercialized Slipknot knockoff.

Man 2: Not exactly. *hands Man 1 a copy of The Jester Race*

When, in the act of copulation, the man ejaculates into his partner's eye and then kicks him/her in the shin, causing him/her to squint and hop around on one leg saying, "Yarrr!"
This chick I was banging said she wasn't on birth control and that I had to pull out...so I gave her a cranky pirate and left.

The word people almost always mean when they say "less." Used comparatively to indicate a smaller number of objects or discrete ideas.
Fewer people use the word "less" correctly every day.

5.
The third best metal album ever made (after The Gallery and The Jester Race), recorded by now-defunct metal band At The Gates in 1995 (coincidentally the same year as the two aforementioned albums). Tomas Lindberg's unrestrained fury brutalizes the listener while the Bjorler twins, Martin Larsson, and Adrian Erlandsson play the tightest, most concisely powerful metal in history.

The album's best point, the lyrics, track man's gradual existential descent from fear and nausea to eventual death, with each song more decayed and despairing than the next. Quotes from W.S. Burroughs and Luke Rhinehart, among others, further illustrate the existential and philosophical points the band is making, while lines such as "A world drenched in the blood of the innocent," and "Jaws locked around your spine" drive the point home like a sledgehammer. The origin, nature, and effects of evil is a secondary theme also explored extensively in the album's lyrics. Even though they are readable by themselves, the lyrics go much better with the punishing metal sound and composition At The Gates set them to.
Man 1: You got existential philosophy in my death metal!
Man 2: You got death metal in my existential philosophy!
Announcer: Two great tastes go together in At The Gates's Slaughter of the Soul.

The SI unit of inductance. Equal to magnetic flux (webers) over current (amperes).
Man, that coil of wire just had a current induced courtesy of Lenz's law. Must've been over 1000 henrys produced by that bar magnet.
