The Best Metal Albums* From A to # (A)


This list is meant to be an extensive, but by no means exhaustive, collection of the greatest (modern) metal albums and eps. Running the gamut from avant-garde to trve norweigan black metal. *As someone who is young in age, my tastes tend to revolve around the period of the 80s to the present.* Although certain metal albums from before will certainly be featured, the period of the 60s-70s will be under-represented. I refer you to this excellent list to gain a better appreciation for some of the best metal from that period: https://rateyourmusic.com/list/freis/martin_popoffs_the_top_500_heavy_metal_albums_of_all_time/

All bands will be limited to one album unless they had a significant change in style (e.g. Amorphis and Katatonia). It goes without saying that as this is my personal list the genres that are included more than others expresses my bias and I am open to listening to any suggestions on additional albums to add. This list will be separated by letters as including them all in one list would make it overly long. Just to give you an idea: my personal collection is over 10,000 songs, most of them in the metal genre.

Most of the bands featured here have other great albums so if you like the album featured here be sure to peruse their other works. Artists whose names start with 'The' or A/An' will be included in whatever letter follows, e.g. ' A Forest of Stars' will be included in F. This list(s) contains the most well-known bands e.g. Opeth, to the most obscure e.g. Vanguard x Mortem.

The list(s) will be updated periodically. If you have trouble locating an album on this list or think I missed a particular album feel free to contact me, and share this list far and wide so that more people can benefit from the incredible array of musical experience metal has to offer.

What exactly do you define as "modern"? I def don't see that Artillery album as modern.

80s to the present, idk what else to call it bc it does exclude a lot of metal from 60s-70s but does include a few of my favorites from that era.

Found a few worthy of a list such as this, assuming you don't already know of them and decided against adding them:

Aborted - Global Flatline (melodic/brutal death)
Abominable Putridity - The Anomalies of Artificial Origin (slam/brutal death)
Abyssmal Sorrow - Lament (funeral doom)
Acid Bath - When the Kite String Pops (sludge)
Acid Witch - Witchtanic Hellucinations (psychedelic death doom)
Afterbirth - Four Dimensional Flesh (technical/brutal death)
Akitsa - Credo (lo-fi black)
Atramentus - Stygian (funeral doom)
Autopsy - Mental Funeral (death)
Avulsed - Gorespattered Suicide (death)

Noticing a trend in the genre tags (hint: it's death).

Also you listed two Amorphis albums.

Thank you, yes, I noted in the description that bands that changed their style significantly like Amorphis would have two albums. Weird that I didn't add Acid Bath, they should be in my library but seem to have disappeared. Same for Atramentus. There seem to me to be more black metal and progressive than death, but maybe that shows the variety well.

All added, as well as a couple more like Anagnorisis which I discovered yesterday and highly recommend. I was just about to post part 2 (B), but there seems to be a limit of one list a week. Is there any way to by-pass this? I wanted to post the rest of the lists here instead of RYM but this limitation will make it take forever to complete the series here.
