Top 20 Metal Guitar Tones

Might not be objective at all but I really like the guitar tones on these ralbums.
1Exodus
The Atrocity Exhibition... Exhibit A


The tone here is so nasty and trebly but it sounds awesome. Shame the album is pree average but dayum son
2Carcass
Heartwork


Probably one of the most weirdly polished guitar tones in metal. Tight and with a good mix of frequencies due to the use of a typical hi-gain amp and a practice amp to fill in the highs. Sounds killer.
3Cryptopsy
None So Vile


Simply sounds heavy as hell, the bass fills in just the right frequencies to compliment the sound here and dayum it's crushing
4Testament
The Formation Of Damnation


Yeah, typical Sneap job, but the sound here is just razor sharp and heavy simultaneously, trems sound godly
5Feared
Vinter


Ola spends all his time looking for as good a tone as possible and here it's pretty amazing; tight and heavy.
6Illdisposed
Four Depressive Seasons


The pick attack is monstrous and the sound has so much weight dayum
7Bloodbath
Nightmares Made Flesh


Somehow they managed to even make the guitar sound guttural
8Cannibal Corpse
The Wretched Spawn


The guitar tone is weird here but ridiculously heavy despite being pretty trebly. The trems sound great too.
9Jeff Loomis
Plains Of Oblivion


Jeff's tone normally sucks but here he turned down the gain a bit so it actually has some legit pick attack and it's now great.
10Pestilence
Consuming Impulse


Way too trebly and yet that makes it sound great for the album. Thrashy as hell.
11Rotten Sound
Exit


Grindy.
12Kataklysm
Prevail


Band sucks but their tones is tight as hell and them trems
13Blood Red Throne
Altered Genesis


Another one of those album with a weirdly guttural tone to even the guitars. Not 100% tight, but the saturation sounds really good here for some reason.
14Deeds Of Flesh
Gradually Melted


Weirdly I dig the excessively scooped tone here, for no real reason. Sue me bro.
15Destruction
Thrash Anthems


Whatever your complaint about how Release From Agony originally sounded, the title track sounds amazing here. So chunky.
16Meshuggah
ObZen


The best 8 string tone. Got much more life than on Koloss but just as tight.
17Anthrax
Spreading The Disease


Chunkier than most old school thrash tone. Just sounds great for whatever reason.
18Cannibal Corpse
Gore Obsessed


Probably just as good as the Wretched Spawn's tone, the album's just worse. Pit Of Zombies sounds great though.
19Dismember
Like An Everflowing Stream


Old school swede-death tone at it's best.
20Savatage
The Hall Of The Mountain King


Lead tone is godly, rhythm tone is manly.
