Kreator - 1999 - Golden Age
This gothic metal album, Endorama, was my first metal album ever, still consider it on par with their classic thrash albums.
Used it as a payback to my elder sister who used to listen to Enya on max a bit too much. What could compare to Tilo Wolff barking in a Hetfield style about an imminent apocalypse and coming of the new Golden Age to distorted guitars and new age inspired keyboards?
By the way, it was the absolutely worst she ever did, so these "British Scientists" (aka BS) who claimed that siblings cannot tolerate each other (Westermarck effect), should've provided oneselves with a sister, for starters.

Elvenking - Jigsaw Puzzle (from Wyrd, their only album without the original singer and yet the only one I like)

My Chemical Romance - 2004 - To the End
It's not a song itself that interesting (which is a borderline ok mainstream modern rock, although this particular album, unlike usual straight-edge fare, sounds genuinely fvcked up), but lyrics, the plot is a cross between Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby" and "When I'm 64", with a modern twist. Two separate plots with unrelated characters who somehow ended up with each other, however, with an opposite ending compared to Beatles' song.

I bet no one ever suspected MCR in writing Beatles fanfiction.
Code: [Select]
wedding          -> cancelled wedding
father McKenzie  -> bored modern aristocrat who does speed
Eleanor Rigby    -> model / lady of the night on benzos (tranquillizers)
funeral          -> actual wedding

As a bonus, "The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch" by Philip K. Dick reference. "Barbies and Kens" - regular people on Can-D, "increase the medication" - non-literal, Chew-Z aka private alternative reality.

Another one on Power Metal topic,
Echoterra - 2011 - Land of the Midnight Sun - After the Rain

On this album, they've pushed the role of keyboards (baroque-inspired) onto the whole next level if compared to a typical flower metal like Nightwish or Rhapsody. The genre could be described as Progressive Power Metal without conservatoire wankery. As opposed to the majority of similar bands, lyrics are also more than intersting.
It would be difficult to guess that they're from USA.

Hank III - Pistol Packing Motherfucker

https://youtube.com/watch?v=90pAytZ7tGw

Long story short, his label tried to milk his legacy (his grandfather being country legend hank williams), he refused to play only country, extensive feud, manages to drop the label which in turn started to release his non-album material (both metal and country) repackaged and advertized as new studio albums (without any imput, consent and at first even knowledge by Hank III himself). To add to the insult this started with the release of his first metal album, shelved by the label in fear of losing the exploit of the country audience (which started their feud).

This is Pistol Packing Motherfucker, from the album hillbilly joker (the shelved album planned by Hank III to be released as This Ain't Country)
The sarcophagus is a lie!
