So, what is the album that is so brutal that it just destroys everything in it's path?

Of course people have different opinions as to what is heavy, brutal etc.. Sure there are countless grind/death bands who think they need to play crappy chromatic/atonal riffs and blast over everything, but IMO that isn't what makes something heavy.

For me, it's "Realm Of Chaos" by Bolt Thrower. I was going to try and explain why I think this is the heaviest ever, but there is a review on MA entitled "Deathgrind's Ultimate Avatar" which describes it perfectly. Read it, you might be convinced. Any contenders?

Any album mentioned on this thread is heavier than In Flames, Scar Symmetry or anything similar. That includes Manowar.

Something far less melodic and cheesy than the likes of Scar Symmetry and company. Maybe some old school death metal with a really thick production a la Bolt Thrower, or some crushing psychedelic funeral doom a la Esoteric.

i think everyone have his opinion

Sarcófago debut album I.N.R.I. is one of the most evil shit I've ever heard. Aside from these extreme metal albums, Painkiller by Judas Priest is (musically) very heavy.

The album that has surprised me most with its weight is probably Sir Lord Baltimore's Kingdom Come. Perhaps it isn't that heavy by today's standard, but before I heard it I didn't know there were other albums released in 1970 comparable in weight with Black Sabbath.

I also need to mention Triptykon's Eparistera Daimones from 2010, that release is monumental, same with Celtic Frost's Monotheist.

In Thrash I'd say Darkness Descends probably.

Other genres, not a fan of extreme music.

Just off the top of my head, I'd say Krisiun's AssassiNation could be one of the heaviest albums I know of, and like.

I changed my mind, Neurosis-Enemy of the sun out-Heavys Everything else. Honorary Mentions go to Suffocation-Effigy of the Forgotten, Celtic Frost-Monotheist, and Mastodon-Leviathan.

I think its difficult to really say unless you define heaviness. Some people seem to equate heaviness with how "extreme" (f.ex. grindcore, deathgrind etc.) an album sounds. But I see the two as distinct (though even "extremeness" is something hard to measure).

Albums I consider to be among the heaviest due to production and/or musical qualities:
Pretty much anything from Bolt Thrower
Necromantia - Crossing the Fiery Path
Vader - Litany
Asphyx - The Rack, Last One on Earth, Death...the Brutal Way, Deathhammer
I would also consider Hail of Bullets albums here (thinking of heavy van Drunen material) Though especially Of Frost and War
Destroyer 666 - Anything
Hate Forest - The Most Ancient Ones
Candlemass - Nightfall
A lot of traditional doom or death/doom in general I would consider among some of the heaviest material out there.
