List Of My Favorite Metal Albums

A personal list. Please feel free to comment. I will continue to add more Albums.
1Black Sabbath
Black Sabbath


The opening track is that moment where you realize Black Sabbath IS metal. This album is the birth and reference point to all that is heavy.
2Death
Symbolic


I don't mean to dwell, but I cant help myself in praising the all around excellence of this album. Lyrically, musically, emotionally it has it all and is forever embedded as one the greatest death metal albums.
3Cryptopsy
None So Vile


When I first listened to this album I was blown away by the inhumane vocals of Lord Worm, the blistering attack of Flo's drumming, and the uniqueness of their sound. One of the most bestial recordings in death metal.
4Cannibal Corpse
The Bleeding


Arguably their most solid album. Rob Barrett's fretwork and sound is devastating. A classic Cannibal record in my book.
5Metallica
Ride The Lightning


My favorite Metallica album. This album is a staple in any metal collection.
6Carcass
Necroticism:Descanting The Insalubrious


Arguably their best death metal effort which is in contention with Heartwork. Amott's guitar work and the sickenly crafted songs warrant repeated listenings of this excellent release.
7Pantera
Vulgar Display Of Power


This album got me through some dark times. I am indebted to this badass album. One of thier finest.
8Deicide
Deicide


A solid death metal album from first song to last. The anti-christian subject matter really seals the deal for me. One of my more revisited death metal albums.
9Dying Fetus
Purification Through Violence


Classic oldschool Fetus sound. It is just brutal and unforgiving.
10Pessimist
Blood For The Gods


This album never dissapoints when I feel like listening to solid death metal. No bullshit, just relentless sonic devastation.
11 Sleep
Sleep's Holy Mountain


Classic doom metal/stoner metal album.
12Danzig
Danzig


An album you just can't get out of your head. The songs are dark and catchy and cements Glenn Danzig as a metal icon.
13Infester
To The Depths... In Degradation


A more obscure release but this is one of the most grimey, murky, darkened and evil sounding death metal album I've ever heard. It has a raw, sinister feel and it is complete with moments of soul crushing doom riffs. A must listen to for anyone trying to find a blackened, evil death metal sound.
14Candlemass
Epicus Doomicus Metallicus


As the title states, it is an epic doom metal release. A classic in my book.
15Suicidal Tendencies
The Art Of Rebellion


This is an album I was introduced to by my mormon neighbor when I was 11 years old. I would get pumped out of my mind listening to this and in my later years I have come to appreciate the evolution of this band and the craftsmanship of the songs, in particular the shredding and clean guitarwork.
16Deicide
Serpents Of The Light


My second favorite Deicide record and I almost love it more than their self-titled. The track Father Bakers has always been a staple in my metal listening. Solid album through and through
17Black Sabbath
Paranoid


OK, I will just say this: The first 6 Sabbath albums are the fucking best. If I desired to I would put them all in a row 1-6 on this list, but you will just have to find them sporadically spread throughout it. I still mantain thier self-titled is the greatest work of metal in existence and in turn they are the greatest metal band.
18Fleshcrawl
Descend Into The Absurd


What can I say about this album? For maximum cranial trauma and ear rape I highly recommend. Bands just do not make them like this anymore; their music is punishing. A+ death metal.
19Pantera
Cowboys From Hell


It was with this album that marks the Pantera legacy. Listen to some history right here.
20Aborted
The Purity Of Perversion


Not the most classic or greatest death metal album but it is pretty fucking gory and brutal sounding. I got this album when I first ventured into the more extreme annals of metal and it grabbed me. Definately their best release and worth listening to.
21Death
Spiritual Healing


No list of favorite metal albums is complete without at least 2 or 3 Death albums. In my case I might just have 4. A must listen.
22 Evocation
The Ancient Gate


Sweden produced a special breed of death metal, one which I love. This demo shatters everything. A fucking gem.
23Dying Fetus
Grotesque Impalement


They recorded my favorite breakdown ever captured on tape. Ok, granted it is a cover of "Bringing Back The Glory" by The Next Step Up, but that doesn't matter. I think they captured the song's energy and delivered it better. This is one the best EP's in death metal.
24Metallica
Master Of Puppets


A monumental release for metal music. This album is Mandatory Metallica listening.
25Eyehategod
Dopesick


I can't listen to Eyehategod without getting the uncontrollable urge to inflict pain, destroy everything around me, crush all meaning and suspend my thoughts in a cesspool of filth and shit where nothing matters except obliteration. Get the picture? Now go listen to this album and try not to contract the infectious nihilism and malevolence. You should probably smoke a bowl just to relax and appreciate the Sabbathian riffage drowned in ear-drum-splitting sludge.
26Black Sabbath
Master Of Reality


A godamn classic. Into The Void is heard in countless riffs by countless bands.
27Macabre
Sinister Slaughter


Picked up this album as a young lad and had a great impact on me. The preoccupation with serial killers and humor makes this album an enjoyable and entertaining experience.
28Acid Bath
When The Kite String Pops


The songwriting of Dax Riggs and the eclectic mixture of genres makes this release a special one in my metal collection. Definately check it out if you want to expand your metal palate.
29Gorerotted
Mutilated In Minutes


There are swarms of bands that have been greatly influenced by Carcass but not all of them are as good as thier UK brethren Gorerotted. This album is littered with blistering catchy death metal that will make you bang your fucking head in. 1234 TIME FOR HACKSORE!!!
30Brutal Truth
Extreme Conditions Demand Extreme Responses


Shredding, Blasting, Blistering, Assaulting, Crushing, Slamming, Grooving, Sickening, Brutal, Intense... Don't know what else to say. Badass?
31Merciless
Unbound


A masterful album. Amazing song writing and execution. Classic sounding from first song to last plus they do a cover of Slayer's Crionics.
32 Mystifier
The World Is So Good That Who Made It Doesn't Live


When I heard the song "Give The Human Devil His Due" in the movie Gummo I heard the heaviest, darkest and most evil sounding song I have ever heard. I had to check this album out and sure enough it is a wonderful Black/Death metal record. To this day I have not heard a song that outdos "Give The Human Devil.." in sheer wickedness and evil sounding metal.
33Death
Leprosy


Not much to say other than it is Death. It is excellent.
34Danzig
Danzig II: Lucifuge


Love this album. For those who haven't given Danzig a listen this album and his first album are great starting points. 5 stars.
35Cephalic Carnage
Perversions...And The Guilt After/Version 5.Obese


I picked up this split and thoroughly enjoyed the humor and fun of it. Cephalic Carnage delivers some of my favorite recordings of theirs on this more obscure release. Anal Blast fills the b-side with some catchy grindy death metal.
36Black Sabbath
Volume 4


FUCKING GREATNESS.
37Dying Fetus
Infatuation With Malevolence


Classic Fetus right here. Their most oldschool brutal death metal sounding release.
38Metallica
...And Justice For All


My favorites list would not be complete without this album.
39Megadeth
Countdown To Extinction


Of all the Megadeth albums this one resonated with me. I loved the maturation of songwriting and overall production of this record. Probably my favorite from Megadeth.
40Cryptopsy
Ungentle Exhumation


The recording of "Mutant Christ" is bowel curdling. It maybe be my favorite Cryptopsy song. Even though this was recorded before "Blasphemy Made Flesh" the recording is so much better. A must listen for any Cryptopsy fan.
41Motorhead
Ace Of Spades


Get the fuck out of here if Motorhead is not a part of your all time favorites.
