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

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.Gaerea - Unsettling Whispers
2.Galadriel - World Under World
3.Galaktik Cancer Squad - Celestia
4.Galar - De Gjenlevende
5.Gallowbraid - Ashen Eidolon

2016: Accounting For The Top Releases

Last year I was a little late to the party...busy studying for a professional exam and all. This year I thought I would try and stay on top of a list and hopefully follow it through to the end. I'm going to limit the list to anything I would rate 7 and up. Overall on this site my ratings are fairly favourable, because I try to stick to genres and bands I know I will like.

1.Asphalt Graves - The New Primitive
2.Vektor - Terminal Redux
3.Grave Miasma - Endless Pilgrimage
4.Lycus - Chasms
5.Glorior Belli - Sundown (The Flock That Welcomes)

2016: Keeping Up With The Joneses (Jan-Jun)

For me more than you, as the sheer amount of music in the world has turned me into a goldfish as far as remembering what I've listened to and what I thought of it. However, if you find something cool from here, more power you my friend!

1.Cult Of Luna - Mariner [Collaboration]
2.Fallujah - Dreamless
3.Moonsorrow - Jumalten Aika
4.Death Grips - The Bottomless Pit
5.Iamthemorning - Lighthouse

2.Blind Guardian - Imaginations From The Other Side
3.Ayreon - 01011001

That Cold Black Magic, By Glenn Killer And His Thorchestra

As is the case with my other lists, this is for my own organizational purposes and is designed purely to help me keep track of all the many black metal bands and albums that I enjoy, since I can't keep all of this information in my head. It has no other benefit whatsoever and will likely result in tantrums should anyone else see it. I'm aware that I haven't listened to every black metal album that I should have. I only went down to the 6s on this list, so it's possible that I have listened to your favorite black metal album that you desperately need to suggest and I thought it was terrible. There are a lot of heinously incompetent black metal bands out there.

On the off-chance that you've found this and actually care about what I think (you shouldn't), be advised that my favorites come first. Some are favorites in the general sense; some are favorites within black metal. The first few of those are in some order and not so much after that.

Because this is for my own purposes and not intended to be a definitive list of pure black metal, there are some black metal-adjacent bands, or albums by black metal bands that may not themselves be black metal. That's why you'll find so much Sigh clogging up the top of the list. I prefer to keep whole discographies together on one list. I used to include Primordial, Forefather, and other such bands, but a while back I created a list for folk and I decided that those artists would fit better there.

I update these lists very infrequently. This was last updated December 7, 2022.

1.Sigh - Imaginary Sonicscape
2.Sigh - Graveward
3.Dissection - Storm Of The Light's Bane
4.Sigh - Heir To Despair
5.The Meads Of Asphodel - The Murder Of Jesus The Jew
