Top 20 Metal Guitar Tones
Might not be objective at all but I really like the guitar tones on these ralbums.
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
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.
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
The Formation Of Damnation
Yeah, typical Sneap job, but the sound here is just razor sharp and heavy simultaneously, trems sound godly
Ola spends all his time looking for as good a tone as possible and here it's pretty amazing; tight and heavy.
Four Depressive Seasons
The pick attack is monstrous and the sound has so much weight dayum
Nightmares Made Flesh
Somehow they managed to even make the guitar sound guttural
The Wretched Spawn
The guitar tone is weird here but ridiculously heavy despite being pretty trebly. The trems sound great too.
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.
Way too trebly and yet that makes it sound great for the album. Thrashy as hell.
Band sucks but their tones is tight as hell and them trems
Blood Red Throne
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.
Deeds Of Flesh
Weirdly I dig the excessively scooped tone here, for no real reason. Sue me bro.
Whatever your complaint about how Release From Agony originally sounded, the title track sounds amazing here. So chunky.
The best 8 string tone. Got much more life than on Koloss but just as tight.
Spreading The Disease
Chunkier than most old school thrash tone. Just sounds great for whatever reason.
Probably just as good as the Wretched Spawn's tone, the album's just worse. Pit Of Zombies sounds great though.
Like An Everflowing Stream
Old school swede-death tone at it's best.
The Hall Of The Mountain King
Lead tone is godly, rhythm tone is manly.

No clandestine :(
NO SLUDGE? NIGGA,
Cool list, it's nice someone highly praises number 3's production since I love it. I'd personally add Aspid and replace Obzen with Nothing or Koloss.
cool list idea, but yeah, gotta get some more variety of toneage here.
Nvm didn't see "Metal" guitar tones
I don't really listen to sludge, don't mind me some doom though so Solstice (the UK one) could be here or whatever.
Anything Kurt Ballou touches.
