More Metal With Mettle

Furthering my commitment to un-pussifying Sputnik's music libraries. If you don't like these, I guess there's always post-hardcore.
1 Thrash
gon have riffs, gon be fast, gon thrash
Welcome to Hell

Way better than Black Metal. This thrashes hard to the max.
3Metal Church
Metal Church

Seriously, an absolute fucking classic. Awesome riffs and awesome wailing vocals. You need this.
Evil Invaders

Raw, early thrash with tight riffs and some cool shrieks.
Raging Violence

Makes me wanna rock the ripped jeans and high-tops.
Possessed by Fire

What can I say? German thrash slays the rest. Sodom, Destruction, and Kreator might be a bit more well-known, but this is one of the absolute best.
Eternal Nightmare

Fast and awesome. But you'll probably complain about the vocals 'cause you're not a true thrasher.
Forbidden Evil

Pretty fast and technical shit with awesome vocals.
Annihilation of Civilization

A long-forgotten gem that pummels the weak and impure.
10Demolition Hammer
Tortured Existence

Awesome riffage and awesome vocals. Bang that head.
11Morbid Saint
Spectrum of Death

I'm pretty sure I've used this album on a ton of lists, but with good reason. It's got to be one of my top three thrash albums ever. I'd almost say these guys are like the American version of Kreator. Wish they had released another full-length.
12 Death Metal
Bloodchilling Tales

Death metal with keys. Not nearly as gay as it sounds.
14The Dead
Ritual Executions

Sludgy death metal not unlike Coffins or if Church of Misery played death metal. I'd suggest getting the re-release of this. The remastered production is a bit more suited for their sound.
15Chemical Breath
Fatal Exposure

An under-appreciated little gem that crushes hard.
The Entity

Icelandic death metal pretty heavily influenced by the Swedish scene and also a bit by doom.
The Shades Below

An underrated act from the US, Morbius have a wide range of influences and interesting fluctuations of tempo and style. Awesome drumming too.

An awesome demo out of the Netherlands that actually boasts a pretty earnest play-time of about thirty minutes. An awesome thirty minutes at that.
19 Disgrace
Inside the Labyrinth

Crushing down-tempo stuff from one of Finland's oldest death metal acts.
Beyond the Veil

One of the best (if not the best) death metal albums to come out of Germany. Great tempo shifts and sparing use of keys.
We Hail the Possessed...

A compilation from one of Sweden's oldest and most overlooked death metal bands. There?s a prevalent hardcore sound to these guys since they previously played hardcore under a different name.
Subconscious Release

One of the UK's finest contribution's to the genre. Rips.
23 Black Metal
24Burial Hex

Awesome ambient/industrial black metal with tortured shrieks and wails.
25Raven Dark
Berustet av Kriegsdronnet

Raw pagan black metal from Russia.

Something old-school that doesn't get enough recognition.
Sielu, Linna

Atmospheric black metal pretty heavy on the Burzum influence. But I wouldn't call it a carbon copy. I would call it an awesome album, though.
Death Before Dishonour

Aside from the album cover, this is a pretty good release.
29Vegas Martyrs
Vancouver Missing Women

Awesome noise black metal from the mastermind behind Prurient and Ash Pool.
Destruction Ritual

Exactly as the name implies.
Death Will Claim Us All

Awesome depressive black metal.
32Menace Ruine
The Die Is Cast

Industrial black metal at its very best.

One-man project from the UK that's pretty grim.
34 Doom
low and slow
35The Slow Death
The Slow Death

Very nice death doom complete with pretty female vox.
36Forest of Shadows
Under the Dying Sun

Beautiful doom from Sweden with vocals that sort of oscillate between black and death metal and violin that makes for quite the melancholic atmosphere.
37Shape of Despair
Angels of Distress

Dark and brooding atmospheric doom.
38Sempiternal Deathreign
The Spooky Gloom

An early death doom gem that's a must. Seminal album.
Forest of Equilibrium

Formed by Lee Dorian after leaving Napalm Death, Cathedral are pretty heavily influenced by Sabbath and Pentagram, but offer a fairly unique brand of doom with some nice melodies.

French funeral doom with some pretty tormented vocals.
Thy Kingdoom Come

Doom with a nice groove to it and equally nice sung vocals.

Beautiful melodic doom from Finland.
43Process of Guilt

Portuguese death doom with great dynamics and head-banging grooves.
44While Heaven Wept
Sorrow of the Angels

Great epic doom with dramatic clean vocals a la Candlemass.
45 How many hipsters does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
Some obscure number you've never heard of.
