61Thy catafalque
Tuno Ido Tarlat


listen to the track "neath waters"

this band is beyond good. Really the epitome of avant-garde blackish metal. I cant believe i forgot to include it originally.
60Nodes of Ranvier
Nodes of Ranvier


Good metalcore, i mean it.

this actually needs to be higher. Lost senses more innocence also good

NOLA


Down makes the cut i guess.

favorite song "stone the crow"
58Spineshank
Self Destructive Pattern


throwing in some numetal for good measure
57Earthside

the title says it all
53omnium gatherum
New World Shadows


finns being finns.
52sear bliss
Forsaken Symphony


okay i really enjoy this band and most have never heard of them.

Listenable brutal death witha horn section
51fates warning
A Pleasant Shade of Gray
50Extol
Undeceived


im digging deep here

"inferno" and "undeceived" are my favorite songs
49golem
Dreamweaver


obscure, atypical brutal death unknown to most.

Elvenefris
47Immortal
At the Heart of Winter
46Ne Obliviscaris
Portal of I
45Darkthrone
Transilvanian Hunger
44Lacuna Coil
Comalies
43Nevermore
Dead Heart In A Dead World


really used to love this band when i first got into metal, soured on them a bit, but they have talent.
42Kiuas
The Spirit of Ukko


honestly i still cant tell if i hate or like this album but ive listened to it a lot
41The Faceless
Planetary Duality


deathcore quota
40Shadow of Intent
Reclaimer


deathcore quota
39sumatra
Heliocratic Infinity


deathcore quota
38Cattle Decapitation
Monolith of Inhumanity


deathcore quota
37Sigh
Gallows Gallery


this band has a long history and theyre are highly atypical to say the least, i definitely need to spend more time with them, but i felt they are probably worth a mention so ill chuck em in
36Norther
Dreams of Endless War


finns being finns
35Shining (SWE)
V - Halmstad


this band confounds me, sometimes it seems so gimmicky and cheesy other times it seems brilliant. worth a listen

track recomendation "neka morgondagen"
34The Gathering
Mandylion


if this album stopped after the first 3 tracks it might be the greatest album of all time, but to me the highs pretty much never return. Perhaps i should give it another spin and see if my outlook has changed
33Finntroll
Nattfodd


good times

favorite song "grottans barn"
32Suicidal Tendencies
How Will I Laugh Tomorrow If I Can't Even Smile Today?


album on here solely for brilliance of title track. not saying i dont like the other stuff, but goddamn
31Dethklok
Dethalbum II


if youre a fan of metal and youve never seen metalocalypse do yourself a favor and do so.
30Ikuinen Kaamos
Closure
29Virgin Black
Requiem - Mezzo Forte


i apparently used to listen to a lot of fairly depressing music

my favorite VB song is definitely "and the kiss of gods mouth 1+2" off elegant and dying but this was probably thhe most complete album they realeased
28Novembre
Novembrine Waltz
27Decapitated
Organic Hallucinosis


really like the first 4 albums from this band, the first 3 had a different and more typical death vocalist, this is the first with cowan on the mic i believe.

choice decap songs on other albums "humans dust" "spheres of madness" "babylons pride"
the Negation as a whole is also pretty solid no real standouts though
26Obituary
Cause of Death


im clearly not the biggest fan of brutal 90s american death but it probably should show up on my list at least once so here it is
25Pavor
A Pale Debilitating Autumn


band that one upped all the technical wankery of necrophagist and faceless clones, but they did it in 1994.

I mean this album and its follow up are fucking as challenging listens as it gets, and its maybe not one of my favorite ablums but i have spent some quality time with it so it gets an appearance here.
24psycroptic
The Scepter of the Ancients


weird music weird vocals. Less generic than psycroptics later stuff though they also have their moments
23Decrepit Birth
Polarity


guitar driven techdeath that also harkens back to early 90s american death.

"Solar impulse" and "ignite the tesla coil" are recommended songs
22God Forbid
Determination


another nwoahm band.

also another ever evolving band that had a very small sweetspot in that evolution and Determination is that sweetspot. I otherwise dont care for god forbid.
21Shadows Fall
The War Within


somehow feel like these guys had a reputation as sellouts or something (maybe im generating that out of nothing)but im fricking sorry but this band is literally responsible for some of the best riffs and solos ever, they also have no true sound a likes. They for whatever reason have seemed to fade into oblivion though. Nwoahm got replaced by deathcore pretty quick i guess.

This album and the preceeding 2 are worth a check.
20Arsis
A Celebration of Guilt


the debut and the best.

after this arsis became somehow both more technical and more generic.

This to my ears is a one of a kind melodeath album, Neartly every track is a standout but none more so than "the face of my innocence".

this would probably be higher but i listened to it so much i got sick of it
19kamelot
The Black Halo
18Mastodon
Leviathan


struggling to figure out y this wasnt on my top 100. "Blood and thunder" and "megalodon" are classics, many other good tracks to be found.

First 4 Mastodon albiums are damn good the rest are solid
17Dimmu Borgir
Enthrone Darkness Triumphant


not a huge dimmu fan on the whole but they have a handful of tracks i tend to return to.

"the night masquerade" "mourning palace" and "a succubus in rapture" come to mind from this album. "serpentine offering " and "kings of the carnival creation" coming to mind from other albums
16The Black Dahlia Murder
Nocturnal


american melodic death/ maybe deathcore. Uses vocal layering and tremolo picking to great effect. heavy. good solos. good writing.

check out title track and "deathmask divine"
15Kroda
Cry To Me River


i have a softspot for eastern european black folk
14temnozor
Folkstorm of the Azure Nights


see above
13tristania
Beyond the Veil


not gonna lie i havent listend to tristania in 10 years but as long as im thinking about gothic metal here u go
12Lilitu
Memorial


well this album has 1 vote on sputnik. so its not very popular, its also not very well produced, but it manages to pull emotions out of me.

gothic metal in the vein of tristania or sirenia

lilitu songs to check "intro/the seventh aeon" "firmament" "unhallowed be thy shame" "i cannot be saved"
11Belphegor
Walpurgis Rites - Hexenwahn


well this album has a fairly low rating on this site, but the first 2 songs (title track and "veneratio diaboli-i am sin")are fucking great. The band is not breaking ground by any means but they embody the spirit of extreme metal. "der geistertreiber" also a song i enjoy, wery simple heavy, headbangable.
10sabaton
Attero Dominatus


band managing to find their own little niche in the power metal spectrum. Band lacks consistency but can manage to get your adrenaline pumping from time to time.

decent sabaton songs from the earlier albums "into the fire", "nuclear attack" price of a mile" "cliffs of gallipoli" "angels calling"
9motorhead
Overkill


a band that in its own genre. probably trailing only black sabbath and metallica in terms of inspiration to metal and all its subgenres.
8Queensryche
Rage for Order


the first 4 albums from this band are quite legendary
7slayer
Reign in Blood


80s slayer. you know it. you love it.
6avenged sevenfold
Waking the Fallen


when the band was starting their transition into some kind of pop/prog metal but still retained some of their more punk based roots.

songs are more diverse and better written than the later stuff, probably not displaying as much musical talent though.

the ballad "i wont see you tonight pt 1" stacks up against songs like "free bird" and "stairway to heaven". Its that good i shit you not
5Refused
The Shape of Punk to Come


okay sorry not metal, i clearly went through a hardcore phase. I think its close enough to metal though so sue me.

fantastic album. "New noise" is one of the best songs ever. I also enjoy "liberation frequency" and "refused are fucking dead"
4Giant Squid
The Ichthyologist


artsy sludge metal.

dig "the le brea tar pits"
3behemoth
Demigod


band putting out consistently good material since their transition to death metal.

this and the satanist are probably my favorite 2 behemoth albums
2Korpiklaani
Spirit Of The Forest


"wwoden pints", and "with trees" alone worth the price of admission
1The Crown
Deathrace King


swedish thrash gods.

"Dead mans song" is one of the more unique and phenomenal pieces of metal i have known
