14Tankard
Beast of Bourbon

...And Justice for All


We all know Lars has been phoning it in for decades, but the drums snap like a motherfucker on this album.
16Blood of Kingu
Sun in the House of the Scorpion


Overlooked gem of metal
17Helmet
Betty
18Bolt Thrower

That snare drop on Immortal Rites is perfection

Mental Vortex


Kudos to Madbutcher3 for jogging my memory on this one. Great drum album.
21ISIS

23Pantera
Far Beyond Driven
24Opeth
Ghost Reveries


OmairSh
25Fates Warning
Theories of Flight
26Porcupine Tree
Deadwing
27Tool
Lateralus


Not a fan of Tool in the slightest, but Danny is a great drummer. I'd lump this guys in with Gojira. The drums are perfection but the music is stale bread.

Dedes thanks for the reminder
30Cryptopsy
None So Vile
31Cynic
Focus
32Blood Incantation

Might as well say the bass is absolutely godlike as well
35Immolation
Close to a World Below
36Exodus
Exhibit B: The Human Condition


thanks Madbutcher3. Tom Hunting is criminally underrated. Phenomenal player.
37Animals As Leaders
Animals as Leaders
38Chimaira
The Impossibility Of Reason


One of the most important bands I can think of in my musical journey. I jammed the fuck outta this, the self-titled and Resurrection in high school. The intro to Pure Hatred is perfection.
39Gorgoroth
Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam
40Machine Head
Burn My Eyes
41Trivium
The Sin and the Sentence


Not a huge Trivium fan, but they have their moments. I think Shogun is a much superior album musically, but this has better sounding drums.
42Carcass
Swansong


Keep on rotting
43Slaughter To Prevail
Misery Sermon


Listen to the snare on Chronic Slaughter's outro and try not to headbang
44Thy Art Is Murder
Hate


Not a huge deathcore guy, but the drums on some of these albums can't be overlooked. Great sound.
45Lamb of God
Ashes of the Wake


Can't stand this band but the drums sound pretty neat. The intro to Remorse is for the Dead really showcases how massive the snare is. Chris was by far the best part of LoG.
46Suffocation
Suffocation


Certainly not their best album, but goddamn are those drums powerful. Entrails of You is probably the crown jewel.
47Queensryche
Empire
48Korn
Korn


I still love classic Korn and the drums go fucking hard on this album

51Deftones
White Pony
52All Shall Perish
The Price of Existence
53Dark Angel
Darkness Descends
54Hour of Penance
Sedition
55Fear Factory

Lots of Gene Hoglan worship in this list. That should come as no surprise.
56The Sword
Apocryphon
57Meshuggah
Nothing
58Destruction
The Antichrist

Symmetry in Black
65Nile
Those Whom the Gods Detest
66Strapping Young Lad
City
67 Akhlys

Thanks Keyblade. Haven't jammed this in forever but I think it's time I dust it off. Great album.
79Iron Reagan
The Tyranny Of Will


Broken Bottles slays for days
80Immortal
Pure Holocaust
81Rotting Christ
Theogonia


One of my favorite bands that always has a solid drum sound
82Ingested
Where Only Gods May Tread


Another modern release that crushes. The drums on Leap Of The Faithless are just so satisfying.
83Heathen
Victims of Deception
84Overkill
Under the Influence
85Panopticon
Autumn Eternal
86Archagathus
Dehumanizer


NeroCorleone
87Totem Skin
Weltschmerz
88Mastodon
Blood Mountain


This album has such an organic and unapologetically raw sound. I almost put Leviathan but I think this one just barely beats it. Both great.
89Napalm Death
Fear, Emptiness, Despair
90Cannibal Corpse
Tomb of the Mutilated
91Order From Chaos
An Ending In Fire


Raw fucking brutality to the max. If you wanna know what St. Anger SHOULD sound like, give this puppy a spin m/
92Warning
Watching from a Distance
93Plini
Handmade Cities


This album really is something else. I'm not typically into prog metal or "djent" but this is an exception. The production is insanely lush and immersive.
94Intronaut
Prehistoricisms
95Black Tusk
Set The Dial
96Deicide
Deicide


Can't believe it took this long to add Deicide. This band is a total death metal workhorse. Steve Asheim is one of the most savage drummers out there. Pure old school playing with no gimmicks or fancy crap, just pure American power.
97Altar of Plagues
Teethed Glory and Injury
98Slayer
Reign in Blood


Lombardo. Enough said.
99Decapitated
Carnival Is Forever


I don't think this is one of their best albums, but it has the best drum sound and the playing pulls no punches. The Knife decks you straight in the face.
100Dying Fetus
Stop at Nothing


Their most underrated album with such an awesome raw drum sound. The cymbals also ting and tang in the best of ways.
