Nice, just 9?
I probably need to give Viking era Bathory another chance, I typically just stick to the Black Metal albums.

Definitely worth a listen imo, I find it notably heavy for a Blind Guardian album which appeals to me personally.

For the record, the 2000’s doesn’t get enough love.

True, and I suppose the 90's doesn't either, it's just that most metal genre's began in the 80's, and the transaction from hard rock to heavy metal truly began, aswel as thrash, death, power and so on, but the 90's sprung forth many sub genre's of those, aswel as black metal, and then the 00's even more so, when I think every sub genre has been done, something new always appears.

Definitely agree about the 90’s, people give that decade too much shit. A lot of great stuff came out then and a lot of experimenting.

Really? I didn't know that. While I probably prefer 80s overall a bit more, the 90s are incredible in metal! My favorite death metal came out in the 90s: Crimson, Storm of the Light's Bane, Bolt Thrower's heaviest albums, and Death's progressive albums... not to mention great black metal as well (At the Heart of Winter 1999)

There’s this narrative that Grunge killed Metal in the early 90’s because the Traditional Heavy Metal bands decreased in popularity or split up, Glam died and Thrash kind of disappeared (I see it more as it morphing into Groove, Death and Black Metal). I think that’s bullshit imo, it didn’t die it just evolved. I find the opinion to be held by more old school types and I think it’s a closed minded way to think about it, personally.
