Need recs for these albums

Any suggestions of some things I may not have heard or given a proper chance?rI'm always trying to discover new music, but it's getting harder and harder as I'm draining the well. But I know there's still some gems out there I haven't heard.
Master of Puppets

Just Because it had to go on here, and I'm 28 so I grew up on old school metal.
2At the Gates
Slaughter of the Soul

I never liked their other stuff, but this album is a masterpiece. Terminal Spirit Disease was alright before, but everything before was too noisy and the prodouction was too lo-fi for my taste.
3 We Came as Romans
Understanding What We've Grown to Be

Really digging these guys, 2nd album better than the first.
4Bullet for My Valentine
The Poison

All 3 of their albums are great
5As I Lay Dying
Shadows Are Security

Love all their stuff, and their screaming doesn't fall into senseless noise, it's got a great rhythm and meter
6Iron Maiden
Live After Death

The Here and Now

I don't like anything else they put out, but this album is awesome in my opinion.

My favorite of newer metal bands, mainly because their riffs are in the same line of what I like to write and hear. They were influenced by my same big four: Metallica, Maiden, Megadeth, and Pantera.
9Killswitch Engage
As Daylight Dies

Great stuff, great vocals
10Parkway Drive
Killing With a Smile

Another band whose screaming doesn't fall into senseless noise and has a great rhythm and meter.
Phantom Antichrist

I just got into these guys, mainly cause of this album. I could never get into their older stuff... it was just too much noisy thrash, whereas this is more melodic and has more substance.
12Children of Bodom
Follow the Reaper

I remember the first time hearing this album... there was something magical about it, much like the first time I had heard Iron Maiden growing up. Great guitar melodies, and I knew each new track would have more. Before this band, I did not like anything that was only screaming. This opened the doors to death metal and metalcore for me.
13All that Remains
For We are Many

This was a great album. One thing odd though is that on The Fall of Ideals, Phil's clean vocals sounded much better than everything after it... everything after it sounded more garagey with worse vocal production. I actually prefer his cleans on The Fall of Ideals.
14Darkest Hour
Undoing Ruin

Awesome melodic death album, even though it's completely devoid of cleans.
15The Word Alive
Life Cycles

Contrary to a lot of the reviews I see on here, I actually thought this album had some really good stuff on it. I didn't care for Deceiver as much, so this album ended up exceeding my expectations.
