A lot of bands have great debut albums. Obviously this list is just a fraction of all the great debut albums out there, but it's a start. I'll keep expanding this list continuously, so all suggestions are welcome (granted they are featured on MS). All the albums here are ranked according to genre and then alphabetically. If a certain album belongs to the (in your opinion) wrong genre, then definitely let me know.

When searching albums of a certain genre, just press "Ctrl + F" and then enter the genre you're looking for. For example, when looking for death metal albums, simply enter "[death]" after you pressed "Ctrl + F" and you'll be at the right place in no time, so it works perfectly.

Thanks for the suggestions. (nice top 10 movies by the way; I've seen 9 out of those 10 movies, but I'd order them differently )


I'm curious, which one haven't you seen? Recommended in advance.

Damn, that is some hard to "digest" music, I'll give you that. I added Lurker Of Chalice since I was intrigued by it (very eerie indeed). I'm not sure what to think about Godflesh, so I'll give it at least one more spin. Both of those cannot be judged easily, that's for sure. By the way, Lurker Of Chalice reminded me of "Unlock The Shrine".

If you're a thrash fan you should consider putting this album:

Witheria - Infernal Maze

fucking insane debut. The whole album is great.

I'm definitely no thrash fan. However (!), I recently found out I like it more than I thought, hence why there's a few thrash albums in this list. The main genres in this list will probably always remain (death/)doom, gothic and black, but I do like to put the greatest albums of thrash, progressive and death metal in the list. The only genres you'll never see here are power and alternative/nu-metal, because I don't like those at all.

Thanks for the suggestion though.

Np, but make sure to give it a spin, its Death/Thrash metal, so you'll probably enjoy it alot.

What the... you're the third person (I think) who suggested that album.

I was about to check it out, but couldn't find it. I just looked and found it (on Youtube), so I'm going to finally check it out.
Alex Fenger - 19.01.2013 at 21:38  
Some i think are missing are; Amorphis - The Karelian Isthmus, Anaal Nathrakh - The Codex Necro, Ancient Wisdom - For Snow..., At The Gates - The Red In The Sky Is Ours, Cloak Of Altering - The Night Comes Illuminated..., Darkspace - I, De Magia Veterum - Spikes Through Eyes, Diablo Swing Orchestra - Butcher's Ballroom..... I won't go through them all but there's a few

Someone here told me Amorphis' debut isn't worthy, so I didn't check it out. I have yet to listen to the others you mentioned. I listened to Diablo Swing Orchestra but I didn't like it... too cheery for my taste. I might give it a second chance though.

Amorphis' debut is absolutely fantastic, one of my favorite death metal albums of all time. Definitely worth checking out if you ask me

I listened to it and added the damn album.

I'm definitely not a fan of those typical heavy metal vocals, but the music sounded great nonetheless.

Ah, didn't know that. But since MS doesn't feature that album, I'm not going to remove The Monad Of Creation. That is, unless you (or anyone else) has a problem with it?

I don't really have a problem with it since I won all of them and Mournful COngregation should be mentioned here, that's the most important thing.

Haha, what do you mean you won them? I was definitely impressed and it didn't seem like traditional funeral doom at all (though I admit I don't know a lot about that subgenre), with even folkish tunes? All in all, it did appeal to me, but it's not the kind of album that can be judged easily.

Any other essentials for this list? I think I shouldn't have asked that to you though.

You just keep coming back, don't you?

A few nice suggestions (mainly the black metal ones), but why did you suggest Forever Storm and Iced Earth? You should know by now I dislike power metal (yeah I know, I have Wintersun on this list, but they are an exception).

Forever Storm is more heavy than power, and Iced Earth has a lot of thrash metal in them.

Midnight Odyssey's Funerals From The Astral Sphere should definitely be on here. Two hours of beautiful black metal.

LordHypnos - 31.01.2013 at 00:47  
That's a very interesting list. And I have some recommendations:

In Flames - Lunar Strain
Sepultura - Morbid Visions (quite underrated imo)
Annihilator - Alice In Hell
Cynic - Focus
Doom:VS - Aeternum Vale
Ensiferum - Ensiferum (not sure if you'll add this one, but...)

I've listened to this album quite a few times (probably 50 or so), and my opinion has stayed the same through every listen. I'd probably give it about a 9.2 or 9.3

Rosetta, huh? Like drone, I'm pretty unfamiliar with sludge as well. Should I listen to both discs synchronized or seperately?

Never have heard of Eternal Nightmare, but I'll check it out. I believe a few people (including Nosurper) suggested Cynic - Focus, but I didn't really like it all that much (just listened to it). Also don't understand why people go on about The Butcher's Ballroom... That's just too over-the-top for me, couldn't even finish listening to the album.

Okay, I promise I'll listen to the whoie thing together. It's still weird though... never heard of that being possible before. If I like it I'll add it along with 4 other albums, which will make it a top 100. I listen to about 5 new albums per week (sometimes longer), so expect the update next week.
