100 Greatest Metal Bands

Pretty self-explanatory, with a couple caveats: first, this is mostly just a list of my favorite metal bands in approximate order (after the top 10 or so the order matters far less), with extra weight given to influence and timelessness of sound; and second, the albums selected are not necessarily the band's "best" album, or even my personal favorite -- they are the albums that I feel best represent the band's classic sound and/or well-represent the span of their career. List includes all sub-genres of metal and some post-metal metal. Feel free to spew your hatred below. \m/ (xx) \m/

1. Black Sabbath - Paranoid
2. Iron Maiden - Powerslave
3. Metallica - Master Of Puppets
4. Judas Priest - Screaming For Vengeance
5. Slayer - Reign In Blood

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

SAY WHAAAAT? Apothecary's Favorites That May Surprise You

The idea for this list was given to me by mz when I expressed that I was more excited about Blut Aus Nord's upcoming Memoria Vetusta III than their Debemur MoRTi EP. As he said: "You are known as a person with intense love for experimental/avantgarde black metal and everyone by default expects you to love a MoRT-like album more that what is probably going to be a not-so-original-melodic black metal album." While I do prefer experimental metal, and tend to lean more towards black and doom, there are plenty of more orthodox and classic releases outside of these confines that I love as well, some of which are true guilty pleasure albums. I decided to throw in some non-MS albums as well, to show that my tastes definitely aren't limited to metal. In no particular order, we have...

1. Pantera - Vulgar Display Of Power
2. Marilyn Manson - Portrait Of An American Family
3. White Zombie - Astro Creep: 2000 - Songs Of Love, Destruction And Other Synthetic Delusions Of The Electric Head
4. Strapping Young Lad - Alien
5. Testament - The Ritual

You Wouldn't Know What Good Art Is If It Hit You In The Face

Since we had the whole MS album art awards, I figured I would try and list out my favourites.
This is not in any order and has no relation to the music, there are bands in here that I don't like, but the artwork is still great.
I'm not quite sure of some of the illustrators and designers on some covers, so they have been left blank, if you do know who did them, let me know. If you think there are some artists that I would dig coz of similar work, just leave me a shout.
This list is not finished so I will keep adding covers that I like.
I don't like Derek Riggs work too much so don't ask me why an Iron Maiden cover is not on the list.

1. Baroness - Red Album
2. Baroness - Blue Record
3. Mastodon - Leviathan
4. Agoraphobic Nosebleed - Agorapocalypse
5. Kvelertak - Kvelertak
