Metal albums with my favourite guitar tones

Recent Martyr binge has made me start thinking about this a fair bit.
1Martyr
Feeding the Abscess


Clear, super tight, but not overly saturated whilst still feeling rich. Really good, some of the best tones imo.
2Exodus
The Atrocity Exhibition: Exhibit A


Nasty, scratchy, but sounds amazing for the music. Songwriting on the album isn't so good but damn the tones are good.
3Hypocrisy
A Taste of Extreme Divinity


Got that weird mix of a chunky fat metal tone and an HM-2 but it slays and works super well for Hypocrisy in particular. Some of the Bloodbath releases sound similar but this has a better balance.
4Carcass
Heartwork


Slightly gnarly despite some pretty traditional setup. There's a nice grit to the high end that gives it a bit of savagery.
5Cryptopsy
None So Vile


Despite being overscooped, there's such a dense chunkiness to this one that I feel few other albums really match.
6Gorguts
From Wisdom to Hate


Honestly only here because of the genuine shuddering weight of The Quest For Equilibrium.
7Anthrax
Spreading the Disease


Realllly chunky for some reason. The pick attack is really phenomenal.
8Voivod
Post Society


Maybe it's unfair to have Mongrain on here twice but the tone on this one is really killer. Chunky but very full sounding and good during the chords and arpeggios.
9Meshuggah
The Violent Sleep of Reason


Not normally a fan of the djoinga djoing but this one has the more metallic, industrial clang of the Chaosphere era which I appreciate a lot.
10Savatage
Gutter Ballet


Another one which feels pretty dynamic despite being pretty gainy. Helps that it gets paired with some great riffs.
11Blood Red Throne
Altered Genesis


Got this kinda nasty saturation to it that lets it have a lot more grind and girth.
