Yeah, I already think it's a rule in the other ones to keep to one entry per post. And preferably to actually say something interesting about the album(s). So I'm starting from 65. If you don't like it then too damn bad.


65. NME - Unholy Death - (1986)




NME were basically the American Hellhammer. Except possibly noisier. I can just imagine a bunch of mullet-clad cromags heading down to a show to see bands with talent like Judas Priest, Metallica, Slayer, etc, and then watching in confusion as these goons just make an unholy din of incompetent noise while treating their instruments like they stole something. I wouldn't blame the crowd for wanting their money back, but I'd still call them poseurs. I think NME are pretty much summed up by the chorus of the opener to this album: "We play loud, louder than hell! ****ing loud, louder than hell!"


Spoiler for ****ing loud, dude.:

Also, Batty asked if number 66 would be reserved for Slayer. Play the game, Norg. Or learn to read. Over to you Batty!

ETA: I would also agree one album per post, and that you need to write a few lines about the album, why it should be included on the list, or if you're a nerd like me and have reviewed it, link to it. Any post that doesn't follow those basic rules will be ignored as Batty has said, so yeah, only Norg's 64 is accepted and we're now up to that magical number....

Oh ****! Thanks for reminding me.


66(6). Slayer - Reign In Blood - (1986)




Everyone on Earth with a sack has heard this album, and with good reason: it's the Thrash Bible. It's everything that thrash at its most basic ever was or ever tried to be; not because it came around and just summarized everything that had come before it, but because it blazed the thrash trail so definitively that nobody else really had anything left to add. Wasn't much left to do after that but go death metal. From those first blazing riffs and hideous shriek, to the crack of thunder and falling rain at the end, this album is nothing more and nothing less than one thirty-minute-long headbang.


Spoiler for SSSSSSSSSSLLLLLLLLLLAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:

^perfect description for that album, Batty

67. Ensiferum - Ensiferum - (2001)


Ensiferum takes you on an brave journey across torrid seas and to faraway wondrous lands. This album is a hell of a lot of fun and an escape from unmagical, boring day-to-day life. The band's perfectly balanced mix of folk metal, melodic death metal and power metal will take you to a place where anything is possible and the power of music can accomplish anything. From Markus Toivonen's infectious folk melodies to Jari Mäenpää's soaring cleans and spirited growls, Ensiferum is a jolt of pure folk metal energy. This album, my friends, is what I like to call EPIC.

68. Entombed Left Hand Path 1990



For me one of the death metal albums that finally matched what bands like Death and Morbid Angel were putting out around this time and along with the aforementioned Dismember album, this is some serious death metal combined with some pretty intricate songwriting and firmly established The Swedish death metal scene at a world level.

69. Dio Holy Diver 1983


Dio had already starred on several classic albums before he formed his own band, which just happened to be called Dio. For many this may have been his finest moment as even Dio himself found this album a hard act to follow. The vocal chords of this almost mythical vocalist make this album quintessential traditional metal in every aspect.

70. Galactic Cowboys Galactic Cowboys 1991


One of the most left-of-field metal albums of the decade, that focuses just as much on harmony as it does on metal, and the band's sonic fluctuations are their pride and joy, and like King's X it certainly set them apart from the pack.

71. Amorphis - Tales From The Thousand Lakes (1994)


This album is Amorphis' crowning achievement, their magnum opus. Tales From The Thousand Lakes might just be one of the best and most atmospheric melodeath albums of all time. They combine a lot of influences here (death metal, Finnish folk, doom metal, prog) that all unite to form a dark and rich atmosphere that grips you from the very beginning and never lets up. Every track has multiple insanely memorable riffs that are melodic yet doomy, folky yet heavy. Tomi Koivusaari's growls are deep and resonant, enhancing the gloomy ambiance. The artwork is beautiful and the lyrics are epic, inspired by The Kalevela (the national poem of Finland). The keyboards are utilized tastefully, contributing to the album's unique swampy atmosphere without being overdone or tacky. Songs like "The Castaway", "Black Winter Day", "Drowned Maid" and "Magic And Mayhem" are forever cemented as classics of the genre. The deluxe version of the album also includes bonus tracks (Moon And Sun Pts. I & II) that are equally excellent.
