A little list series where I list my top 20 favorite metal albums every year starting from the year I was born in.

2019 was solid year to end the decade with great releases in Progressive and black metal, doom metal had a strong showing and I finally found a deathcore band that I care about, the 2010's may not have been the most influential decade in metal but it did had a punch of great releases, that might be considered classics down the line, time will tell.

1. Remind Me Tomorrow
By Sharon Van Etten (Indie Pop, Synthpop)

2. GREY Area
By Little Simz(UK Hip Hop, Conscious Hip Hop)

3.Titanic Rising
By Weyes Blood (Art pop, Dream pop)

4. Morbid Stuff
By PUP (pop punk)

5. There Existed an Addiction to Blood
By clipping. (Industrial Hip Hop, Horrorcore)

Qualeen's Albums-to-Listen-to Checklist

Fairly self-explanatory. I don't think I will approach these in any particular order, I'll treat it whimsically. I'm not sure what I'll do once I have familiarized myself with these sufficiently. I might go and leave a comment on the album's page.

Last updated on 10 November 2022.

1. Ethereal Shroud - Trisagion
2. Psychonaut - Violate Consensus Reality
3. Darkthrone - Arctic Thunder
4. Aenaon - Mnemosyne
5. First Fragment - Dasein

Metal Albums Ranked From WORSHIP To DISLIKE

Ratings go from:

WORSHIP ❤️❤️❤️: Absolute greatness, a mindblowing album.
LOVE ❤️❤️🖤: Amazing release with very few flaws.
LIKE ❤️🖤🖤: Enjoyable but far from perfect.
DISLIKE 💔: Not very good or maybe not fitting my tastes.

I've decided to stop rating albums with a numerical value as I tend to feel uncomfortable with that. This list has a minimalistic, subjective and visceral approach, based purely on sensations and personal tastes. Mainly for personal use and doesn't pretend to be a serious ranking, but emerges from the need to remember which bands and albums I enjoyed and the ones I disliked. I constantly revisit new releases so first impressions may change over time. It usually takes 8-10 spins for me to get completely sure of a rating.

1. Æther Realm - Tarot
2. Abhoria - Abhoria
3. Acid Bath - When The Kite String Pops
4. Agrypnie - Metamorphosis
5. Allegaeon - Fragments Of Form And Function

The Timeless Ver2

1.All time & genre (including Non-Metal on MS)
2.Only studio albums & EPs
3.The genre is primary one.
4.Only ESPECIALLY favorite (a bit more stringently than ver1 and rating 10 is not enough)
5.The order: A to Z (initial of band's name), next release date
6.Black Wisdom, an album of Russian band Grey Heaven Fall, is deleted. When the situation gets better, I will repost.

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

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:

1. W.A.S.P. - The Crimson Idol
2. Wachenfeldt - The Interpreter
3. Wake - Devouring Ruin
4. Waldgeflüster - Femundsmarka - Eine Reise In Drei Kapiteln
5. Walknut - Graveforests And Their Shadows
