Thumbs up: +1
Apologies, of the most sincere kind, for the Spoonerism. It's really not my style, but some could argue it was necessary...

1. Metallica - ...And Justice for All
1988 - Dyers Eve (+ of course, One + Blackened. To hear at least one, navigate to their Videos or Myspace after clicking the band's name)
2. Deadfall - Ordeal by Fire demo/EP
2005 - title track, among others (http://www.myspace.com/deadfallband but it may be long gone)
3. Dãm - The Difference Engine
2007 - title track, among others. Hear it now: http://www.myspace.com/spiritualvoid (or click the band-name here (and then perhaps the Official website link (and then perhaps to Facebook)))
4. Neil Young - Mirror Ball
1995 - Throw Your Hatred Down. The album where he was backed by Pearl Jam. Don't worry - their singer only contributes to a few of the songs (IIRC this was not one of them) and it turned out to be a nicely rocking affair. Not as awesome as Mr. Young's previous release but, hey, that's another list ;)
5. Slayer - Reign in Blood
1986 - Criminally Insane
6. Slayer - Undisputed Attitude
1996 - Gemini (I have yet to hear the rest of this album. This was the only Slayer original, and it's rather unorthodox for them. The ending RULES)
7. Metallica - Master of Puppets
1986 - Orion + Damage, Inc. Started learning the former some years ago. If I had a drumkit, I'd almost certainly be done by now :/ I think Orion's still on http://www.myspace.com/metallica
8. Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin II
1969 - Moby Dick + The Lemon Song. Could play the former on guitar... no leads though... :/
9. Megadeth - Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?
1986 - first few tracks. Can play, love the guitar riffs, but... *points you to the name of this list* I believe both songs 1 & 3 to be among MTV's classic videos of the '80s, so if they're not on YouTube, go ahead and sue the President. Or Dave. Preferably Dave :D
10. Vektor - Black Future
2009 - all tracks? Destroying the Cosmos / Hunger for Violence, in particular http://www.myspace.com/vektor
11. Carcass - Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious
1991 - Corporeal Jigsore Quandary (if you've never heard this, Videos or Myspace. Now. Go!)
12. Wargasm - Ugly
1993 - The Rudest Awakening. This should soon appear on my Love to Sing! list, and the guitarwork rules here, too. Also, Dreadnaught Day, see the video http://www.metalstorm.net/bands/videos.php?band_id=2999
13. Wargasm - Suicide Notes
1995 - Engine. Suicide Squad. And maybe the last few minutes of Tear Down. Hear some of these Warg songs on their Myspace (dotcomslash-bandname)
14. Immortal - Sons of Northern Darkness
2002 - tracks 1, 2, 4, 7/8. I believe the first had some sort of video release, and the title track was listenable on Mysp/immortalofficial last time I checked
15. Zyklon - Disintegrate
2006 - Vile Ritual + Vulture + half of the preceeding album, especially its bookending songs. Supplementary notes similar to Sons; see above
16. Morbid Angel - Heretic
2003 - Enshrined by Grace. Video / Texas Chainsaw Massacre soundtrack (no, really)
17. Kataklysm - The Prophecy (Stigmata of the Immaculate)
2000 - Stormland... just get the album. Most of the songs are better than this one, especially 6, 8 & the closer. Could also easily add some later material to the list, as well as many more from when the guy growling here was instead playing the bass guitar
18. Immolation - Here in After
1996 - first few tracks. I'm all about the guitars for 4 + 8 ...well, mostly :D
19. Dãm - Purity: The Darwinian Paradox
2005 - Spiritual Void - like ^ but even better in many respects. I think this band may never be heard from again :/ http://www.myspace.com/spiritualvoid
20. Wormed - Voxel Mitosis
2001 - good demo [title] track from a talented BDM outfit from Spain. Vocals are delivered in a truly other-worldly manner, although the drums are just about the only thing you can really hear. Production this "bad" might have been intentional to conjure some kind of sweet warp-speed/"black hole" atmosphere. Give it a go on their band page / http://www.myspace.com/wormed
