The Top Tier: My Favorite Metal

I generally think of metal in three tiers. Tier 1 is as heavy as it gets (for me at least) and tier 3 is mainstream, with tier 2 being somewhere in-between. The following are my favorite Tier 1 metal bands (and associated albums) generally post 1994.
20Scar the Martyr
Scar the Martyr
19Machine Head
Unto the Locust
18Hellyeah
Stampede


Unden!able is a close second.
17Mastodon
Once More 'Round the Sun


My favorite all around Mastodon album
16Tony Iommi
Iommi


Great set of tracks and different vocalists
15DevilDriver
The Fury of Our Maker's Hand


Went downhill after this album, in my opinion.
14Soulfly
Primitive


Prophecy was a close second.
13Roadrunner United
The All-Star Sessions


A smorgasbord of greatness...
12Sepultura
Nation


To all the "haters" of the Derrick Green era, eat this.
11Heaven and Hell
The Devil You Know


Underrated. Have found this in the dollar bin too many times, which is a crime.
10Megadeth
United Abominations


Really dug this lineup of Megadeth...
9Trivium
In Waves


For the doubters, take a listen to "Caustic are the Ties that Bind"
8Killer Be Killed
Killer Be Killed


My God! Max Cavelara, Troy Sanders, and Greg Puciato singing seamlessly on one album. It is as good as it sounds.
7Metallica
Death Magnetic


I know...the loudness wars. But this is still a top notch album!
6Down
Down II: A Bustle in Your Hedgerow


My favorite Down album, no matter what people say. The inclusion of Rex Brown really shows on this album.
5Type O Negative
October Rust
4Pantera
Far Beyond Driven
3Black Sabbath
13


Best Buy Deluxe version. The inclusion of 4 additional, awesome tracks (Methademic, Peace of Mind, Pariah, and Naivete in Black) make this album a tour de force.
2Sepultura
Roots


Used to blare this album to scare average folks walking down the street. But it is so great!
1Slipknot
Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses


There was nothing greater, in my opinion, than seeing Slipknot live during the Vol 3 era.
