The King Of Heavy Metal

Yeah, that's me
1Addaura
Addaura


Their first and best release in my opinion. My favorite aspect is female vocalist Chantal who conveys incredible emotion
2Aethyrvorous
Demo


Unfortunately broken up, Aethyrvorous is born of the same blackened cesspool that spawned Portal and is equally as good in their own dark way.
3Aguynguerran
Perverting the Nazarene Cult


These guys are like Dissection on steroids - very confident melodic blackened death metal.
4Anagnorisis
Overton Trees


Before he decimated black metal, A. Lundr was part of this excellent blackened death metal unit with very clear Opeth influences.
5Angelcorpse
Exterminate


Unfortunately underrated around these parts, Angelcorpse one of best and most influential blackened death metal bands ever. Their focus on speed, Pete Helmkamp's vocals, and Gene Palubicki fucking awesome, awesome riffage is what makes them go. Seriously, riffs.
6Backyard Mortuary
Lure of the Occult


One of the best metal releases of this year, Backyard Mortuary play an old school style of death/doom that doesn't innovate but still kicks ass.
7 Baphomet
The Dead Shall Inherit


Baphomet have always been a little less known than their contemporaries but still play super mean old school death metal.
8Beheaded
Perpetual Mockery


One of my all time favorite death metal albums, Perpetual Mockery combines osdm with brutal death metal with some melody. Damn.
9Blood Revolt
Indoctrine


A very awesome and unexpected blackened death metal collaboration featuring two key members of Axis of Advance, Sacramentary Abolishment and Revenge (James Reed and Chris Ross) and then A.A. Nemtheanga from Primordial. Unexpected, but awesome.
10Burial Invocation
Rituals of the Grotesque


Ridiculously awesome death metal from Turkey.
11Cancer
To the Gory End


Old school death metal that excels during its more mid-paced sections
12Carcass
Swansong


Most people rag on this album but it's actually amazing... Instead of selling out and doing what the label or the fans wanted they created one of the first and best rot'n'roll albums. Bill Steer's riffs are still fucking awesome, the production is great and overall it's a catchy but still heavy album. Totally underrated.
13Cauteror
They Fell


Obscure melodic death/doom from the guy who now is the brains behind Gnaw Their Tongues. Really great and underrated stuff.
14Clandestine Blaze
Falling Monuments


Mikko Aspa is one of black metal's greatest musicians and with the most recent Clandestine Blaze combines the freezing atmosphere of classic black metal with some really awesome melody. The organ embellishments in closing track "Discordant Howls of Tormented" are just spine-tingling.
15Circle of Ouroborus
Armon Keitaalla


Still very post-punk influenced, Armon Keitaalla features amazing melodies in a black metal aesthetic.
16Coffinworm
When All Became None


Super awesome blackened sludge doom.
17Consolation
Stahlplaat


Fucking awesome and underrated old school death metal from the Netherlands.
18Darkthrone
Sardonic Wrath


My favorite mid-period Darkthrone.
19Deceased
Surreal Overdose


One of my favorite death metal bands, who combine thrash and progressive very well.
20Desolate Shrine
Tenebrous Towers


Super atmospheric blackened death metal from last year. One of the best albums.
21 Devil's Dung
Devil's Dung


Really great raw black metal courtesy of Mark McCoy (of Arts and Charles Bronson) and DOminick Fernow (of Ash Pool and Prurient amongst others)
22Electrocution
Inside the Unreal


Old school technical death metal. Wowza that is some good riffs
23Encoffination
O Hell, Shine In Thy Whited Sepulchres


Most times I find with kind of stuff you forget about it and stop listening after about a week but thanks to the wonderful atmosphere and songwriting, I still listen to this amazing funeral doom albums quite a bit.
24Engraved
Before the Tales


Swedish death metal that is melodic, this is one of my favorite all time death metal release of the old school. Also super underrated. Now go listen to it
25Entrails
The Tomb Awaits


Super solid swedish death metal from last year
26Exhorder
Slaughter in the Vatican


NUFF SAID
27Execration
Odes of the Occult


Really weird almost avant-garde death metal from Norway. Really fucking good
28Fallen Christ
Abduction Ritual


Amazing blackened death with slight grind influences
29Father Befouled
Revulsion of Seraphic Grace


ONe of the best death metal bands going today. Heavily Incantation influenced, but hey, when has that ever been an issue?
30Fell Voices
Untitled


One of the best modern black metal bands. Just so absorbing.
31Forgotten Spell
Desecrated, Decayed and Still Holy


Riff Heavy and satisfying black metal.
32Funebrarum
The Sleep of Morbid Dreams


Death metal superground with members of Disma, Assuck and many others.
33Gaunt
Demo


ONe of the best black metal releases this year.
34Heresiarch
Hammer of Intransigence


Killer blackened death metal from New Zealand featuring members of Diocletian and Witchrist.
35Hexis
XI


Blackened post-hardcore that is absolutely unrelenting
36Idylls
Farewell All Joy


Grind/Mathcore/Sludge omg omg omg great
37Immolation
Dawn of Possession


My personal favorite Immolation release ... combines their super unique approach to death metal with more traditional values.
38Kathaaria
The Complex Void of Negativity


Technical black metal. THis may sound weird but it's actually quite incredible. THe riffs are so fucking good and everything is just super refreshing .
39Krabathor
Cool Mortification


One of the first death metal bands hailing from the Czech Republic. Czech them out.... haha...
40Martire
Martire


One of the first extreme metal bands from Australia playing blackened death metal. This release is raw, fast and will fuck you up.
41Miserere Luminis
Miserere Luminis


One of the best and most original bands combining black metal and shoegaze
42Muknal
CN-22


Blackened death doom. One of the better Crepsculo Negro releases from this year.
43Nembrionic
Psycho One Hundred


Fantastic death/grind from the Netherlands
44Odz Manouk
Odz Manouk


Another black metal band making great waves in the underground scene. The riffs are just so fucking awesome an overall this has just great style.
45Obliti Devoravit
Obliti Devoravit


Fantastic, fantastic black metal with extremely unorthodox riffage.
46Pathologist
Putrefactive and Cadaverous Odes About Necroticism


When Carcass created goregrind, they influenced a ridiculous number of bands... Pathologist is one of them... This album is basically Symphonies of Sickness Pt.II and I love exvery second of it.
47Plainwords
OVergrow to Overthrow


Another incredible A. Lundr project combining post-rock, crust, black metal and sludge. Definitely recommended.
48Portal
Swarth


The most dense and my personal favorite of Portal's three full-length albums.
49Reka
I


Absolutely superb post-metal/screamo hybrid. Super pretty and super atmospheric.
50Summoning
Stronghold


Summoning is one of the most consistent black metal band as their is no weak album is their discography. However, there is a best album, and this is it.
