I actually only have 2 original of them And even those two I wouldn't consider essential

Ya, when I think essential I don't think albums as ... limited as this make the cut. There's nothing from the '80s, a lot of genres left out, and a lot of classics overlooked - not to mention a lot of non-classics that made the cut in the first place.

These lists are getting tedious. I know its summer and things are a bit slow, but ....yawn.

Nothing against the OP, its just these lists in general are only true to an individual and their opinion.

Nice list. But you might call it Top 10 Metal albums, not essential metal albums.

Well.. the only essential album for me here is "At The Heart Of Winter" which is in the last place, but it's your list, your rules.
Warman - 08.01.2012 at 15:41  
Great albums but the only essential one for me is "Hatebreeder". One of the albums which changed me and an important piece of my early teenage years.

I only got draconian and immortal
Nosurper - 07.05.2012 at 03:25  
Sadly, I have not heard one of these albums
Windir - 10.07.2012 at 21:11  
I own 6 of them but only consider Artnor essential
Windir - 22.01.2013 at 17:12  
I own 60% of this list. Arntor essential...? I would say legendary!

While Arntor is my favorite on the list I don't think I'd call it "essential"

Okay, I disagree with the title of this list... why not call it "My Top 10 Metal Albums"? Anyway, still a nice list and I'm going to check out most of the ones I don't know yet.

You had me at Windir. I was scrolling through the top lists and saw their cover art pop up. Stopped. Good show, sir. The rest, I'd have to argue with some of the choices. I can take or leave Bodom. With Oden on our Side or The Avenger are both superior to VTW, Turis Fratyr is a bit better than Sagas, though I enjoy both. I'll take any Moonsorrow album prior to V. I really think V is boring and pretentious. The rest is pretty good. Filosofem and Heart of Winter are both for sure entries.

If you're just going off the title, the word 'essential' is pretty ambiguous. Some could view it as high quality albums while others could view it as albums that defined/influenced a genre/period. Some nice stuff on that list regardless of the title.

I like 1 of them (CoB).
