Who Decides: Top Albums of the Decade

Ok, I wasn't planning on doing a list of albums of the decade, but I saw it somewhere and figured why not? I tried to keep it to 50, and the only real stipulation I had was that I could only have at most 2 albums per band. The hardest album I had to eliminate was In Flames' Come Clarity.
**UPDATED 1-5-10**
I decided to take off The Crown's Deathrace King because I needed some space to add, Borknagar's Epic, Bruce Dickinson's Greatest Hits, and Brides of Destruction's Here Comes the Brides.

The list in alphabetical order;
All That Remains: The Fall of Ideals (06); Overcome (08)
Animals As Leaders: Animals As Leaders (09)
Anthrax: Stomp 442 (01); We've Come For You All (03)
Arch Enemy: Manifesto of Arch Enemy (09); The Root of All Evil (09)
As I Lay Dying: An Ocean Between Us (07)
Beyond The Embrace: Against the Elements (02)
Biomechanical: Empires of the World (05)
Blaze: Silicon Messiah (00)
Bullet For My Valentine: Scream, Aim, Fire (08)
The Crown: Deathrace King (00); Crowned in Terror (02)
Deadlock: Wolves (07)
DevilDriver: The Fury of Our Maker's Hand (05), The Last Kind Words (07)
Halford: Crucible (02)
The Haunted: rEVOLVEr (04), The Dead Eye (06)
Helloween: The Dark Ride (00)
The Human Abstract: Nocturne (06)
Hypocrisy: Virus (05)
In Flames: Clayman (00), Reroute to Remain (02)
Into Eternity: Buried in Oblivion (04), The Scattering of Ashes (06)
Killswitch Engage: Alive or Just Breathing (02), End of Heartache (04)
Lacuna Coil: Comalies (02), Karmacode (06)

Megadeth: The World Needs a Hero (01), Endgame (09)
Mercenary: 11 Dreams (04), Architect of Lies (08)
Metallica: Death Magnetic (08)

Protest the Hero: Kezia (05)
Shadows Fall: The Art of Balance (02), The War Within (04)
Soilwork: A Predator's Portrait (01), Natural Born Chaos (02)

Susperia: Unlimited (04), Cut From Stone (07)
Testament: First Strike Still Deadly (01), The Formation of Damnation (08)
Trivium: Ascendancy (05), Shogun (08)

That's my list. Some cheating going on by listing greatest hits, but oh well.

Side note, this is post #199, so the new year will bring #200 nice.
