Top 11 Favourite Metal Albums Of 2000


Thumbs up: 0
Iron Maiden have made more appearances in these than any other band so far and this is the first time they got the number one spot in one of my lists. Congratulations guys, it took 20 years but you finally did it! A career high point, no doubt.

Also includes: another poser alert!
(But I stand by it and be honest, half of us millennials probably found this music thanks to that album.)

Plus my top three favourite tracks from each release. \m/

Honourable mentions:
Behemoth - Thelema.6 (Death/Black)
Nile - Black Seeds Of Vengeance (Death)
Deftones - White Pony (Alternative)
Vader - Litany (Death)
Cradle Of Filth - Midian (Gothic/Black/Symphonic)
Mudvayne - L.D. 50 (Nu/Alternative)
Weakling - Dead As Dreams (Black)
Electric Wizard - Dopethrone (Doom/Stoner)

Non-Metal mentions:
Velvet Acid Christ - Twisted Thought Generator (Industrial)

Definitely not as good a year as 1999 but still some pretty cool stuff, although we seem to only have Immolation in common. Mayhem and Fleurety both strayed away from their original style into some weirder and more avantgarde territories and both releases were great. In addition, Electric Wizard, Discordance Axis, Forgotten Silence and Boris all released really cool albums this year.

Damn, you young.

I’m pretty new to Nevermore myself but I very much recommend that album even as someone who hasn’t heard that much from them.

I haven’t heard those three albums, I’m afraid. Bands I’m kind of on the fence about, shall we say.

I was pleasantly surprised that Dead Heart in a Dead World lived up to the hype, highly recommend giving it a listen.

Nice choices, I haven’t heard the first two but Saturnus is one I am interested in hearing.

Doom metal has always been a genre I have found difficult to get into, but Saturnus are the exception, I have liked their music from the start, and have found all of their albums highly impressive.
