    That Insomnium album is great--I could probably list it on mine, too.

    I've actually begun to seriously mine the depths of late 80's/early 90's death metal*, so maybe not so much "modern" but you're pretty much right on.

    I love everything Insomnium has put out, but "Above the Weeping World" was a cut above the rest imo.

It's got some decent stuff on there, like All-Star, and One Week. The Kingdom Hearts soundtrack is my favorite for video game music.

    It was kind of funny when one of my soundtracks got labeled by my PC as "Breath Souffle World"*.

    *It was for Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild.
    I've always liked Zelda's music. Sonic the Hedgehog had good music too.

    I've never been able to get into Christian music, ever. I've tried, believe me. But I do love me some dc Talk.

    I tend to go for "greatest hits" CDs for certain popular 70s rock bands. Led Zeppelin, Queen, Blue Oyster Cult, etc.
    Also:
    Magic Knight Rayearth: Itsuka Kagayaku
    Magic Knight Rayearth: Best Song Book
    Imagine Dragons - Night Visions

    The Legend of Zelda games pretty much always have something catchy. To this day I can't get Saria's Song out of my head. Super Mario Odyssey actually has lyrics for the theme song, and it's pretty catchy as well IMO. Then there are the very atmospheric tunes of Metroid. Magmoor Caverns theme is probably one of my favorites from Metroid Prime.

    Lately I've been able to add Antestor's first* album Kongsblod to my favorites.

    This wasn't released until 2004, but was recorded about 1990:


    Here's a local band which also took forever to get their stuff on CD (taped a couple of their songs off the radio in 1989-90):


    The local Christian radio station had a program from 11-2 on Friday evenings when I was in high school called "The Thunderzone" which was all Christian metal. It was awesome. Eventually "concerned parents" got it shut down.
