    The other lists make me realise I've forgotten so many albums I'd probably have to do a top 100 to fit all the ones I want to include.

    man, these lists are difficult :lol:

    20:// Kreator - Pleasure to Kill (1986)
    This album spawned Deathrash, and Kreator doesn't get the credit they deserve these days for their impact on the metal world.
    19:// Megadeth - So Far, So Good...So What! (1988)
    This is probably the "forgotten" Megadeth album...because Jeff Young doesn't jump to mind when someone tells you to name a Megadeth shredder. Chuck Behler performed very well on this album too behind the kit, and I think Mustaine hit his vocal peak here.
    18:// Meshuggah - Destroy, Erase, Improve (1995)
    DEFINITELY the weirdest album on this list, with start-stop rhythms, Tomas Haake's incredible drumming and Jens Kidman's demented asylum vocals.
    17:// Fear Factory - Demanufacture (1995)
    A full concept album on machine vs man...the production was way ahead of its time.
    16:// Alice in Chains - Dirt (1992)
    The only album from the grunge era I really cared for.
    15:// Carcass - Heartwork (1994)
    The guitar tone on this album is excellent and one of my favourite vocal performances of all time.
    14:// Opeth - My Arms, Your Hearse (1998)
    despite the lacking consistency, this album contained some of Opeth's classics (April Ethereal, Demon of the Fall).
    13:// Strapping Young Lad - City (1997)
    I seriously think this is the heaviest album EVER made.
    12:// Pantera - Far Beyond Driven (1994)
    The heaviest album to ever debut at #1, and for good reason.
    11:// The Haunted - rEVOLVEr (2004)
    Peter Dolving's return spawned some incredible lyrics, and his punk-like vocals mixed with the swedish metal instrumentation blew me away.
    10:// Sepultura - Beneath the Remains (1989)
    Brazil?? wtf??
    09:// Opeth - Morningrise (1996)
    fucking epic death prog.
    08:// Children of Bodom - Hatebreeder (1999)
    This album never lets up...
    07:// Morbid Angel - Altars of Madness (1989)
    One of the more influential death metal albums of all time.
    06:// Suffocation - Effigy of the Forgotten (1993)
    Long Island's finest exports. Amazing guitar tones, and I personally love the vocals.
    05:// Death - Spiritual Healing (1990)
    Chuck Schuldiner had amazing musicians on this lineup, and turned in his best performance. the only lineup which is possibly better than this was his lineup on Individual Thought Patterns (LaRocque, DiGorgio, Hoglan)
    04:// Pantera - Vulgar Display of Power (1992)
    INCREDIBLE groove.
    03:// Megadeth - Rust In Peace (1990)
    All out shredfest, and the debut of Marty Friedman. Also happens to be the only good album Marty's ever been a part of, but that's a different story.
    02:// At The Gates - Slaughter of the Soul (1995)
    The best album in swede-metal history. Incredible consistency.
    01:// Pantera - The Great Southern Trendkill (1996)
    It's got 10's, Floods, and Suicide Note Pt 2 on it...need I say more? Vinnie Paul's greatest work by far...and Dime didn't do too badly for himself either.


    Cannibal Corpse - Tomb of the Mutilated
    Carcass - Swansong
    Children of Bodom - Hate Crew Deathroll
    Damageplan - New Found Power
    Death - Individual Thought Patterns
    Lamb of God - As The Palaces Burn
    Mayhem - De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas
    Megadeth - Peace Sells, But Who's Buying?
    Morbid Angel - Domination
    Sepultura - Arise
    Slayer - Hell Awaits
    Strapping Young Lad - Alien

    ...Damn you hellflame for making this thread every 6 months

    In my opinion, a GREAT album is one that I can listen to many many times and still never want to skip a track. There are some albums with fantastic songs on them (for example, Minutes to Midnight), but I don't include them on my best albums list if they have even a single track that I skip or feel is weaker than the rest.

    I also elected not to include any type of live or compilation albums on here, and I only picked one album by each band so I could get more variety on here. This is somewhat in order, although a lot of them are easily interchangeable.

    1. Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
    2. Muse - Absolution
    3. AFI - Sing the Sorrow
    4. KISS - Carnival of Souls: The Final Sessions
    5. Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory
    6. System of a Down - Toxicity
    7. 80HD - Catch You on the Flipside
    8. Coheed and Cambria - In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3
    9. My Chemical Romance - The Black Parade
    10. Trans-Siberian Orchestra - Christmas Eve and Other Stories
    11. Sofapunch - More to Lose
    12. Primus - Pork Soda
    13. Metallica - Master of Puppets
    14. Red Hot Chili Peppers - Stadium Arcadium
    15. Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin 4
    16. Audioslave - Audioslave
    17. Boston - Boston
    18. Lostprophets - Start Something
    19. Thrice - Vheissu
    20. The Who - Who's Next

    Honorable mentions:
    -Green Day - American Idiot (great album in my opinion, go on and shoot me)
    -KISS - Destroyer (Minus the song Sweet Pain, this is a masterpiece)
    -Linkin Park - Minutes to Midnight (Drop In Between and put No Roads Left on there, kthx.)
    -Nine Inch Nails - Year Zero (This would've been on the top 20 if I actually cared for industrial/electronic music)
    -Pink Floyd - The Wall (Fantastic piece of work but it has some lulls in a few spots)
    -Z-Trip - Shifting Gears (The best DJ solo album I've ever heard personally)
    -Muse - Black Holes and Revelations (Great album but has a couple songs I don't care for)
    -Coheed and Cambria - Good Apollo Volume 1 (Has a couple songs I don't like much)
    -Trans-Siberian Orchestra - Beethoven's Last Night (ALMOST as great of a rock opera as Christmas Eve, but it's just a tick below it IMO)
