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

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. Ba'al - Ellipsism
2. Back To R'lyeh - The Awakening / Last Fight Of The Primordial
3. Bad Salad - Uncivilized
4. Bakos Attila - Aranyhajnal
5. Balance Of Power - Book Of Secrets

Phoenix Rising Through Fire: Top 10 Metal Albums Of 2019

Another year, another top 10, or should I say top 25 of the year. Plenty of good albums, but Månegarm, Borknagar and Insomnium without a doubt top albums of the year. Villagers of Ioannina City is a revelation of the year, and while it might not be "metal" definitely one of the top albums of this year. Blind Guardian is not bad, far from it, but I expected so much more from this album hence it (un)deservedly gets to bear the shame of the letdown, although it is a decent album. Maybe I expected too much from it. One of the bands that deserve more attention this year for certain is Croatian Old Night, a real masterpiece when it comes to doom. Another recommendation would be Serbian Svartgren with their new black metal album called Divlja Vatra, or Wildfire. The rest of it pretty much boils down to personal taste and preferences. Darkwater and Bloodbound were a very pleasant surprise when it comes to progressive and power metal respectively. When it comes to symphonic and progressive metal, Wilderun was another pleasant surprise, a band I discovered recently through metalstorm website..

1. Månegarm - Fornaldarsagor
2. Borknagar - True North
3. Insomnium - Heart Like a Grave
4. Beast in Black - From Hell With Love
5. Swallow the Sun - When a Shadow is Forced into the Light
