Fave Metal Albums/EPs 1991 -2000

Period 1991-2000 is perhaps one of the most understated periods of metal because of the decline of commercial metal and the emergence of grunge and then nu-metal.

But the period saw release of some kick arse releases. In fact for yours truly it was a major milestone in metal (does help I got into metal around 1992). These are my favourite albums/EPs from the period.

1. Alice In Chains - Dirt
2. Alice In Chains - Jar Of Flies
3. Anthrax - Sound Of White Noise
4. Arch Enemy - Stigmata
5. Blaze Bayley - Silicon Messiah

Top 40 Albums That Blow My Poseur Mind

To walk the path of the metal poseur is to pick the plumpest of mainstream fruits and succour the sweet secretions contained within. It is the art of walking with giants of mainstream underground extremism whilst maintaining one foot firmly on the part of pop monumentalism.

The path is dangerous for the faux fur of metal consumerism is a tempting demon whore that claws at the inner self of underground triumphalism. These are the eagles that soar through the mind galleries of every metal poseur, no matter how compartmentalised their singularity may be.

1. Alice In Chains - Dirt
2. Anthrax - Volume 8 - The Threat Is Real
3. Artillery - By Inheritance
4. Blind Guardian - Imaginations From The Other Side
5. Blind Guardian - Nightfall In Middle-Earth

10 Definitive Alternative Metal Albums

So here are ten alternative metal albums which I think are significant to defining the sound of alternative metal over the years, limiting it to one album per band and keeping to albums that are best described as alternative metal as opposed to subgenres like industrial or nu metal. I've also included what I consider to be the most important song from each album, even if it's not the best representative of the albums sound.

1. Jane's Addiction - Nothing's Shocking
2. Faith No More - Angel Dust
3. Helmet - Meantime
4. Alice in Chains - Dirt
5. Tool - Undertow

My Desert Island Discs

Based on the original BBC radio program from 1942 that asked "if you were to be cast away alone on a desert island, which eight gramophone records would you choose to have with you, assuming of course, that you had a gramophone and an inexhaustible supply of needles".

Pretty f&rkin' hard to choose just eight albums but I've given it a go. Hope it never happens because I'd probably get sick of these awesome albums after just a few weeks - then what!?

1. Judas Priest - Sad Wings of Destiny
2. Faith No More - The Real Thing
3. Megadeth - Rust in Peace
4. Alice in Chains - Dirt
5. In Flames - The Jester Race
