19. High On Fire - Death Is this Communion - (2007)




A seamless grab bag of stoner, doom, thrash, and Motorhead, guitarist Matt Pike somehow manages to capture the beating heart heavy metal itself into one brilliant album. Riffs for days, esoteric lyrics, and production with enough distortion and fuzz to make Electric Wizard proud, make this a masterpiece that can't really be compared to much of anything out there.


Spoiler for Dose riffs, mang.:

20. Kiss Destroyer 1976


The first Kiss album I bought and this one had Bob Ezrin as producer and he made the band sound cleaner, louder and more bombastic than ever before. This is a must for anybody listening to Kiss, as they wouldn't get this loud again until the 1980s. **** just check out "God of Thunder".

21. Metal Church - Metal Church

One of the earlier thrash metal albums, and "...a formative influence on the thrash metal subgenre,
melding the aesthetics of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal and American hard rock with
incredibly tight musicianship and piercingly screeched vocals." This was their debut album
that would land them a big label contract, and cement them into metal history.

22. Uaral - Sounds of Pain... - (2005)




An excellent Extreme Metal album that mixes Doom, Black and Death Metal, plus their native Latin/Chilean Folk music. Overall this is really a Doom Metal album, but one that has a very unique flavour due to their folk music influences. It's very atmospheric and great at eliciting emotions from the listener. This album is just about the epitome of melancholy, gloom, dread, and despair in musical form.

23. Sarcófago - INRI - (1987)




A primitive blast of hardcore punk, merged with a filthy strain of brutal metal somewhere in-between thrash, black, and death metal. There weren't many albums this intense back then, and from the opening blast beat to the ending sample of some guy taking a nasty shit and then flushing the toilet, this is an aural assault that only the trvest of metalheads are worthy of listening to. If you've ever heard Mayhem's De Mysteriis Dom Sathans, then this album will reveal exactly what that band had been listening to just before recording it.


Spoiler for **** yeah Sarco***o!:

24. Tank --- Filth hounds of Hades --- (1982)
The best elements of metal and punk mixed together, shaken up and sprayed in your face with all the exuberance and don't-give-a-**** attitude of youth. Hell yeah!

25. Overkill - Taking Over - (1987)




Overkill are perhaps better known for The Years of Decay or Horrorscope, but they were never more raw or mean than on their first two albums. Taking Over, their sophomore album, is stripped-down, brutal speed metal that sounds like Iron Maiden's train just came off its rails. It may not be as polished as later albums, but the energy levels of this thrash classic are just off the charts. And how can I not mention the Human Air Raid Siren, Bobby "Blitz" ****ing Ellsworth? Dude's a madman of a singer and anyone who doesn't like his voice is a pussy and that's all there is to it.

@Plankton: Great call on Metal Church's first, fantastic album, easily in my top 5 for thrash.

26. Demolition Hammer - Epidemic of Violence [1992]



Absolutely ferocious NY thrash metal with remarkable control and precision, like a jackhammer to the ear drums or a rabid dog attack. Epidemic of Violence saw the band move forward with greater focus and more balanced production. Although quite similar in style to their debut Torture Existence, also a classic, EOV really jacks the intensity up a full notch. Disgustingly feral vocals, interesting and uniquely descriptive lyrics (see Pyroclastic Annihilation), immensely heavy instrumentation backed by tight balanced production, and some of the cleanest and most precise percussion I've ever heard at this tempo. The songs are aggressive, merciless, and often quite catchy.

I second this, very good recommendation for Pallbearer fans.
