Trends In Metal Over The Last 3 Decades

This is a list Ive been meaning to make for awhile, and because im bored as fuck with some time to kill i thought i'd put it together now. No real point to it, just a list that shows (what i believe to be) the various trends in metal over the past 3 decades, with a key album from each year which helped to establish it the genres popularity. Keep in mind this is just off the top of my head and i've clearly left a shitload of influential bands and genres out of it. Also some of them (Black metal, sludge etc) never really got all that popular or trendy but I thought they should get a mention anyway. Inb4 grunge isnt metal Inb4 Nu metal isnt metal Inb4 Djent isnt even a genre (It may as well be)
