More Metal With Mettle

Furthering my commitment to un-pussifying Sputnik's music libraries. If you don't like these, I guess there's always post-hardcore.
1 Thrash
gon have riffs, gon be fast, gon thrash
2Venom
Welcome to Hell


Way better than Black Metal. This thrashes hard to the max.
3Metal Church
Metal Church


Seriously, an absolute fucking classic. Awesome riffs and awesome wailing vocals. You need this.
4Razor
Evil Invaders


Raw, early thrash with tight riffs and some cool shrieks.
5Hirax
Raging Violence


Makes me wanna rock the ripped jeans and high-tops.
6Exumer
Possessed by Fire


What can I say? German thrash slays the rest. Sodom, Destruction, and Kreator might be a bit more well-known, but this is one of the absolute best.
7Vio-Lence
Eternal Nightmare


Fast and awesome. But you'll probably complain about the vocals 'cause you're not a true thrasher.
8Forbidden
Forbidden Evil


Pretty fast and technical shit with awesome vocals.
9Evildead
Annihilation of Civilization


A long-forgotten gem that pummels the weak and impure.
10Demolition Hammer
Tortured Existence


Awesome riffage and awesome vocals. Bang that head.
11Morbid Saint
Spectrum of Death


I'm pretty sure I've used this album on a ton of lists, but with good reason. It's got to be one of my top three thrash albums ever. I'd almost say these guys are like the American version of Kreator. Wish they had released another full-length.
12 Death Metal
br00tal
13Sorcery
Bloodchilling Tales


Death metal with keys. Not nearly as gay as it sounds.
14The Dead
Ritual Executions


Sludgy death metal not unlike Coffins or if Church of Misery played death metal. I'd suggest getting the re-release of this. The remastered production is a bit more suited for their sound.
15Chemical Breath
Fatal Exposure


An under-appreciated little gem that crushes hard.
16Sororicide
The Entity


Icelandic death metal pretty heavily influenced by the Swedish scene and also a bit by doom.
17Morbius
The Shades Below


An underrated act from the US, Morbius have a wide range of influences and interesting fluctuations of tempo and style. Awesome drumming too.
18Excavation
Gravemouth


An awesome demo out of the Netherlands that actually boasts a pretty earnest play-time of about thirty minutes. An awesome thirty minutes at that.
19 Disgrace
Inside the Labyrinth


Crushing down-tempo stuff from one of Finland's oldest death metal acts.
20Torchure
Beyond the Veil


One of the best (if not the best) death metal albums to come out of Germany. Great tempo shifts and sparing use of keys.
21Hetsheads
We Hail the Possessed...


A compilation from one of Sweden's oldest and most overlooked death metal bands. There?s a prevalent hardcore sound to these guys since they previously played hardcore under a different name.
22Desecrator
Subconscious Release


One of the UK's finest contribution's to the genre. Rips.
23 Black Metal
kvlt
24Burial Hex
Initiations


Awesome ambient/industrial black metal with tortured shrieks and wails.
25Raven Dark
Berustet av Kriegsdronnet


Raw pagan black metal from Russia.
26Nargaroth
Herbstleyd


Something old-school that doesn't get enough recognition.
27Raate
Sielu, Linna


Atmospheric black metal pretty heavy on the Burzum influence. But I wouldn't call it a carbon copy. I would call it an awesome album, though.
28Goatmoon
Death Before Dishonour


Aside from the album cover, this is a pretty good release.
29Vegas Martyrs
Vancouver Missing Women


Awesome noise black metal from the mastermind behind Prurient and Ash Pool.
30Krieg
Destruction Ritual


Exactly as the name implies.
31Auspicium
Death Will Claim Us All


Awesome depressive black metal.
32Menace Ruine
The Die Is Cast


Industrial black metal at its very best.
33Basilisk
Vintyrhell


One-man project from the UK that's pretty grim.
34 Doom
low and slow
35The Slow Death
The Slow Death


Very nice death doom complete with pretty female vox.
36Forest of Shadows
Under the Dying Sun


Beautiful doom from Sweden with vocals that sort of oscillate between black and death metal and violin that makes for quite the melancholic atmosphere.
37Shape of Despair
Angels of Distress


Dark and brooding atmospheric doom.
38Sempiternal Deathreign
The Spooky Gloom


An early death doom gem that's a must. Seminal album.
39Cathedral
Forest of Equilibrium


Formed by Lee Dorian after leaving Napalm Death, Cathedral are pretty heavily influenced by Sabbath and Pentagram, but offer a fairly unique brand of doom with some nice melodies.
40Funeralium
Funeralium


French funeral doom with some pretty tormented vocals.
41Doomshine
Thy Kingdoom Come


Doom with a nice groove to it and equally nice sung vocals.
42Rapture
Futile


Beautiful melodic doom from Finland.
43Process of Guilt
Renounce


Portuguese death doom with great dynamics and head-banging grooves.
44While Heaven Wept
Sorrow of the Angels


Great epic doom with dramatic clean vocals a la Candlemass.
45 How many hipsters does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
Some obscure number you've never heard of.
