Favorite Metal Albums

I'm bored as fuck so here are my favorite metal albums somewhat in order.
1Emperor
In The Nightside Eclipse


My favorite album in metal, and I daresay in any genre. A spectacular and majestic opus.
2Neurosis
Through Silver in Blood


Fucking huge music. Given To The Rising also rules.
3Ulver
Bergtatt
4Death
Symbolic


Best Death album in my opinion, and that's saying a hell of a lot.
5Bathory
Blood Fire Death


Probably the only album on this list that the "true" kids won't hate me for, this is a masterpiece; as vile and savage as it is epic and glorious, nearly melancholic at times in its feral longing for times long gone.
6Morbid Angel
Altars of Madness


I've always fantasized about showing this record to Beethoven and seeing the bewildered, confused and yet somehow proud look on his face.
7Enslaved
Isa


This record is so dense, compositionally and sound-wise as well, it's damn near impenetrable.
8Electric Wizard
Dopethrone
9Gris
Il Etait Une Foret...


My favorite contemporary black metal album/band, these guys manage to make music that is interesting and daring while utilizing everything that's cool about black metal perfectly.
10Gojira
The Way of All Flesh


Just listen to it.
11Agalloch
The Mantle


This album changed the way I looked at music, and it introduced me to a thousand possibilities I had never even considered. Beautiful music.
12Burzum
Filosofem


The darkest most nihilistic and grim record in all of black metal. In contrast to most of the stuff I've put on here this wins because of its stark, minimalistic approach.
13Isis
Oceanic


The grooves. They're massive.
14Wolves In The Throne Room
Two Hunters


It's too bad they kinda wussed out on really experimenting with dense compositions, they were on to something truly amazing.
15Cryptopsy
None So Vile
16Primordial
To The Nameless Dead


Best "pagan" metal band, by far. Shit is epic.
17Weakling
Dead as Dreams


The Wagnerian ideal taken to its logical, destructive, brilliant and cathartic conclusion.
18Immortal
At The Heart of Winter


The undisputed gods of the riff.
19Moonsorrow
Kivenkantaja


I'm not usually into bagpipes and flutes in my metal, but these guys pull it off by making it sound genuine, dangerous and dark, and by writing some fucking brilliant songs.
20Mastodon
Leviathan


I think that someone's trying to kill me!
