The Best Metal Albums* From A To # (C)

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/

1. Cacophony - Speed Metal Symphony
2. Cadaveria - In Your Blood
3. Caïna - Mourner
4. Caïnan Dawn - F.O.H.A.T.
5. Cain's Offering - Stormcrow

JokeR's Top Hunnid From 2010 - 2019

To commemorate the top 100 albums of 2010 - 2019 I thought I would follow suit and make a list of my own. This has been a very challenging task to say the least. As I reflected on the releases from the last 10 years, it became increasingly difficult to settle on album rankings. In the interest of getting my top 100 published I am potentially releasing the list a little prematurely. The top 30 or so are quite firm. I don't anticipate much change in those albums, however, there could be some mobility throughout the rest of the list.

1. Ulcerate - The Destroyers Of All
2. Esoteric - A Pyrrhic Existence
3. Un - Sentiment
4. Mournful Congregation - The Incubus Of Karma
5. Ulcerate - Shrines Of Paralysis
