5. Vektor - Outer Isolation - (2011)


This to me is technical/progressive thrash metal at its best. There may have been a number of landmark bands/albums for the progressive thrash metal genre before these guys or this album which was their second, but this one to me nearly perfects what I ever could see this take on thrash metal being. Plus there's some good influence to their sound from black metal, and maybe some other genres, which has stood to make them just that much better and more interesting.

6. Bathory - Hammerheart - (1990)




The album where Bathory finally broke from their extreme metal roots to create something far more epic and soaring. If the band hadn't started as a black metal band this would have been called epic doom: heavy as a frost giant, repetitive yet hypnotic riffs, and lyrics of times long forgotten. This is a tribute to Quorthon's Viking ancestors that treats them with respect and reverence rather than as a vehicle for power metal tales told by bands who don't want to admit it. If you haven't heard this masterpiece, then do so now. Best listened to on a longship as it crashes over the waves of a churning sea on the way to raid an English village.


Spoiler for Bitchin' Bathory Bitchin'ness!:

7. Black Sabbath --- Black Sabbath --- (1970)
Anyone who needs a reason can get the **** out of here and turn in their denims and leathers at the door.

8. Saxon --- Denim and leather --- (1981)

One of the albums that always captures the true sense of the NWOBHM for me, and the last with the classic lineup. Songs like "Princess of the night", "Never surrender", the title track and "And the bands played on" make this album a must-hear.

9. Saxon - Wheels of Steel - 1980




Perhaps not as consistent as Strong Arm of the Law or Denim and Leather, this album is Saxon at their most ruff 'n' ready, and contains arguably their strongest separate songs of all time. "Motorcycle Man", "Stand Up and Be Counted", and "Wheels of Steel" (OMG that ****ing riff!) are melodic metal with the backbone of a dive bar rock band. Infectious yet never to be taken for AOR, this is a metal album any '80s biker worth his salt would have blasted while pounding back a six-pack or five. Not to be taken as dunderheads though, "747 (Strangers In the Night)" is a shock of unexpected class, and "Suzie Hold On" is a ballad that shows that Saxon had heart as well as balls.


Spoiler for Saxon, dude.:

10 Cough - Sigillum Luciferi (2008)



If you are looking for all things sludge, doom and even elements of motherfucking drone, check this bad boy out. Absolutely immense record. Gets you head banging from start to finish. The manliness is literally sweating out of me just thinking about it.

11. Lamb of God - New American Gospel - (2000)




Lamb of God's first album after changing their name from Burn the Priest is a monster. Groove metal heaviness meets metalcore savagery and, with Randy Blythe's tortured, misanthropic screams, create high-quality brutality that leaves one's ears completely ruined. Not just a collection of two-dimensional riff fest though, this album knows when to pull back, change tempos, switch riffs, and then build up to a monumental climax of headbanging art, before moving on to the next mini-masterpiece of creative metal awesomeness. Sometimes in the same song.


Spoiler for **** the idiots, this was their best album.:

12. Hail Spirit Noir - Pneuma - (2012)


If you ever were curious what Psychedelic Black Metal sounded like, well here's your chance. It may have been 11 years before this album that Sigh released an Avant-garde Black Metal album with a heavy Psychedelic influence, but this one is definitely a more exclusive/pure mix of the two genres with no offshoots into other territory. Definitely a great, innovative work, and very consistent throughout that you'd be surprised it's a debut album.
