Steel Erect's Decade List

Well, since it is coming close to the end of a decade, and everyone seems to be compiling their decade list. I decided to put mine together as well. This took a lot of thought to see where I came from in 2000 and where I am now in 2009 as far as music goes. So, here it goes.
1Nothingface
Violence


In 2000, I was starting to deter away from the nu metal bands that I listened to in the 90s, but Nothingface was the exception because I must have listened to this for 6 months straight. And this still is a great record.
2Deftones
White Pony


Again, it was the year 2000, and I remember recording in the studio with my band the day this album came out. I was floored and this album really impacted me.
3Opeth
Blackwater Park


I know this is a Sputnik favorite, but when I first got into Opeth 1999 with Still Life. These guys were one of my breakthrough bands that got me into heavier music. And this album hit me real hard in 2001 when it came out.
4Glassjaw
Worship and Tribute


Sometimes it is hard for me to get into the vocals, but the music is so wonderfully written on this album. Once you learn to appreciate the vocals, the album is stellar.
5Immortal
Sons of Northern Darkness


Immortal was another band that helped me get into heavier music back when my friend showed me Damned in Black. But this album to me was just ace. The production, the songwriting, the musicianship. This just displays great dark music to me.
6At the Drive-In
Relationship of Command


This album was a great way for this band to end their career. Every song on this album is great and the production is awesome.
7...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead
Source Tags and Codes


Back when this band actually wrote good music, I don't know what has happened to these guys, but this album and Madonna are awesome rock records. Definitely, one of my favorites to come out.
8Muse
Absolution


This is by far my favorite Muse record and I think their vision was still developing, but definitely the strongest one. I like every song on this album for the most part.
9Mastodon
Leviathan


I don't care what anyone says about Mastodon. Even though, they are all big and popular now, when this album came out, it was impressive as fuck. The songwriting and musicianship is great, the riffs are spectacular. This album impacted me in a huge way.
10High on Fire
Blessed Black Wings


Matt Pike is my hero and Steve Albini provided a side to High on Fire's music that just hits you with a ten ton hammer.
11 High on Fire
Death is this Comm


Once again, High on Fire did it. And this Jack Endino produces High on Fire's sound differently bringing another aspect into their music production wise. Love it. I think it is awesome that they go to a different producer for their records.
12Doves
Lost Souls


This album is extremely sentimental to me, but every song on here hits me hard. I think the Doves write great pop music and deserve a little more recognition.
13Rwake
Voices of Omens


Sludge from Arkansas that just balances the heaviness and melody so fucking good. One of my favorite records of all time.
14Clutch
Blast Tyrant


The best Clutch record hands down, it just has everything that I love about rock. And awesome riffs.
15Witchcraft
Firewood


I love these guys because they sound like they just came out of the 70s. Pure vintage Pentagram vibe, the Pentagram that goes unnoticed. So good.
16Witchcraft
Witchcraft


Same reasons for above.
17Kylesa
Static Tensions


I just fucking dig Kylesa's sound with two drummers, the production, and the riffs are tasty as get up.
18Baroness
Red Album


The more progressive side of Baroness, and you know, I just love their melodies a lot.
19Baroness
Blue Record


I love the classic rock approach with sludge incorporated on this record. I dig the production too. I hear the spirit of Thin Lizzy in this record.
20Bloodbath
Resurrection Through Carnage


I know the production gets dogged a lot on this album, but the guitars sound nice and crunchy. The dark melodies kickass, the riffs are tasty, and Mikeal's growling is so awesome.
21Neurosis
The Eye of Every Storm


I love the more chill Neurosis that they displayed on this album. I can just sit back and listen to this.
22Burst
Lazarus Bird


I can't believe this band is breaking up. This record is amazing. Again, the melodies and songwriting are exceptional. Too bad people didn't give them a chance.
23Burst
Origo


Same as above.
24Electric Wizard
Witchcult Today


I love all Electric Wizard, but this album has more of a vintage vibe to it. This album is evil as fuck.
25Nachtmystium
Assassins: Black Meddle Pt.1


I know this album gets abuse from some of you, but man, I don't know what you are smoking because this album has a nice balance of black metal, psychedelia, and rock. Just listen to "Code Negative."
26Big Business
Here Come the Waterworks


Right before they went to join the Melvins, they came up with this awesome piece of music. If you like the Melvins, you should definitely check out Big Business. This album is great.
27Trap Them
Seizures in Barren Praise


One of my favorite discoveries of this year. The guitars of old Entombed and Dismember, but the aggression of a brick hitting a wall.
28Isis
Panopticon


My favorite Isis record hands down. I just love everything about this album.
29Truckfighters
Gravity X


For fans of Kyuss, check this band out. Desert Rock from Sweden. Great stuff.
30Grand Magus
Monument


Awesome doom from Sweden. You may recognize the vocalist from Spiritual Beggars.
31Grand Magus
Iron Will


Not as much doom on this record, but fans of NWOBH should really look into this record.
32Corrosion of Conformity
In the Arms of God


After a long hiatus, COC came back with this album and it destroyed. Pepper Keenan and company bring us awesome riffs again.
33Down
Down II: A Bustle in Your Hedgerow


At first, I didn't like this album that much because I was used to the awesomeness of NOLA. However, this album really grew on me and I think this was a good experimentation for the band.
34Radiohead
Kid A


This record is great. And after seeing them live on this tour, it just solidified how awesome the songs were on this record.
35 Placebo
Without You I'm Nothing


I don't know what it is about this record, but I think it is amazing. Probably the best stuff these guys have done.
36Sigur Ros
( )


The atmosphere and beauty in this album made an impact on me. So awesome.
37Cave In
Jupiter


I love the songs on this record, and I think that Cave In hasn't touched anything as great as this album. "Big Riff" = win.
38Poison the Well
The Tropic Rot


This album trumps all of their other albums to me. I love the direction they are going and have already listened to it a shitload.
39Megadeth
Endgame


Disagree with me all you want, but to me, this is the best Megadeth album since Rust in Peace. And for that, it deserves to be on here.
40Alice in Chains
Black Gives Way to Blue


Again, AiC coming back after Layne's tragic death and the boys still have it. Such a great record.
41Converge
Axe to Fall


Best Converge album. Lots of variety, lots of guest appearance, and I think this is their most ambitious album to date.
42The Ocean
Precambrian


Because of Disc 2, this cd is fucking amazing.
43Intronaut
Void


The bass playing is awesome, the songs are heavy as hell. I love this record.
44The Hidden Hand
Mother * Teacher * Destroyer


For people who haven't heard this record, check it out. Wino at his best.
45The Gates of Slumber
Conqueror


Old school doom done the right way. Man, does this record slay.
46Enslaved
Ruun


Enslaved just keep progressing, but it was this album that really took shape for me.
47Cursed
One


I just got into these guys this year, but man, did they impact me huge. this record crushes.
48Decapitated
Nihility


Polish death metal that speaks to me heavily. Curious to see what the new line up will be.
49The Black Keys
Rubber Factory


What a great group. This record is so awesome. Love it.
50Bigelf
Hex


Beatles/King Crimson/Pink Floyd/Black Sabbath rolled up into one spliff. This record has it all.
