|Some Catchy Metal|
Some albums with a great focus on catchy riffs and/or choruses. Would love some recommendations!
|1||Devin Townsend Project|
If pop-metal is a thing, this is definitely a landmark. Brilliant songwriting and ideas, epic moments, and tons of fun. A song: Addicted!
Mix some Devin Townsend, Periphery, Dream Theater, The Mars Volta and pop-hooks, and you'll get one of the best metal debut of this year. A song: Love song
|3||Diablo Swing Orchestra|
Ok, this one might not be entirely metal, but you can't deny it's fucking fun. These guys gather such eclectic influences and melt them into something original and ironic at the same time. A song: Voodoo Mon Amour
Rush meets Iron Maiden meets Pantera. Dark, heavy, catchy, proggy. What did you expect, porn? A song: Lie
Probably the band's heaviest album along with Fear of a Blank Planet. But there's still lots of rock here. A song: Shallow
One of the best concept albums, and a fucking pillar of prog metal. Pure awesomeness. A song: Revolution Calling.
The Human Equation
You really can't go wrong with Arjen Lucassen. This two-disc eclectic-rock/metal-opera is one of the most acessible yet diverse albums you'll ever hear. And it's guests? Mikael Akerfeldt, James LaBrie, Devin Townsend, among others. A song: Day Two - Isolation.
|8||Beyond the Bridge|
The Old Man and the Spirit
Well-done prog metal. No chessy or boring clones. This is how to do thing, guys and gals. A song: Triumph of Irreality.
The Divine Wings of Tragedy
I'm not keen on thrash/power metal, but this just rocks. Heavy, pretentious, technical and damn fun. In other hand, it might have ended up something cheesy and boring. A song: Of Sins and Shadows
These British gentlemen are the future of prog metal. A hurricane of fresh air into a dreadful scene. A song: In Memoriam
|11||The Devin Townsend Band|
Along with Addicted, Devin's most accessible, groovy and catchy album. You will headbang and sing along to the fucking lyrics. A song: Depth Charge
|Diamond Head - Lightning to the Nations|
|A Tap Dancer's Dilemma is one of my favorite songs.|
|mmm good list.|
Could include Nightwish or something
|You'd probably dig Myrath - Tales of the Sand|
|Archgoat-Angel-Slaying Black Fucking Metal|
|Do you even glam?|
|Judas Priest is catchy as fuck.|
Check Sad Wings, Stained Class, and Sin After Sin by them. Their 80's stuff has hard jams too, so you could try British Steel, Screaming for Vengeance or Defenders of the Faith.
Check Painkiller and Killing Machine too.
|Just check every priest. Even the meh albums (Turbo, Ram Down, Jugulator) have a couple catchy songs.|
|needs more accept |
|was gonna comment destiny potato lmao|
|earth- earth 2|
|No cheese on 8? lol that thing is dripping with queso. Heard it for the Elite Prog list tournament.|
|anything from sunn o))) or bizarre uproar |
|Judas Priest forever|
pretty much all good (and even the bad) '80s metal is catchy as fook. stuff like holy diver and lightning to the nations. m/
|Yeah Danzig |
|carcass - reek of putrefaction|
|Crimson Glory - Transcendence|
Axxis - Kingdom of the Night
|Check out Destrage - Are You Kidding Me? No.|
|In Flames - Clayman|
|Necrophobic- The Nocturnal Silence|
|First of all...Define "Catchy"|
|darkane - layers of lies|
|Detritivore, that's something all the albums on the list have in common.|
