Thumbs up: +24
We've had the Crushing and we've had the Dark, Harrowing and Ravaging, now it's time for the Anger. This list could be seen as a sort of Dance of the Dregs from those other two lists (as in albums that didn't get on either), but some of these albums to me might be classified as either or neither.

As you can see, not limited to genres. Suggestions are demanded appreciated.

Today Is The Day
Dark Tribe
All Pigs Must Die

Created by: Lit. | 14.11.2013

1. Abyssal - Novit Enim Dominus Qui Sunt Eius
Desolation and devastation. Sonically sardonic. Prepare for punishment. Abyssal are abysmal. Ah, I adore alliteration.
2. Acid Bath - When The Kite String Pops
3. Agoraphobic Nosebleed - Agorapocalypse
So this album is basically three people screaming at you at once (one of which is a woman). Really, this album is something along the lines of "angerousal" because some deranged trauma queen singing about sexy preteen boys is not just disturbing on Pig Destroyer levels, but it's also kinda sexy in a weird way.
4. Alkerdeel - Morinde
The sonic equivalent of being violated by inbred hillbillies in the dark north woods of Canada, before being saved by Bigfoot, who promptly tears them to shreds and save you for dessert. I don't know what I'm talking about, but this would be some sweet-ass beef jerky commercial.
5. The Amenta - n0n
Industrial... death... angry... This album is a bullet to the head and a lap-dance over your headless corpse by the girl who pulled the trigger.
6. Anaal Nathrakh - The Codex Necro
I've been loving these unusual black metal bands lately, from psychedelic stuff like Orassni Pazuzu to industrial horror like The Axis Of Perdition. Anaal Nathrakh are no exception with their face-melting punishment. Belligerent and numerous.
7. Antediluvian - λόγος
If Hell had a public restroom, this would be the muzak playing over your head while you take a dump.
8. Assjack - Assjack
Easily one of the most obnoxious albums I've ever listened to, but for some reason it keeps roping me back in. Rob Zombie should take note: This is how to act like a Hellbilly.
9. Benighted - Icon
Why are you so brutal to me, Benighted? From the vindictive number that is Slut to various other similar yet different death/grind whatever, Benighted is a crushing number. Welcome to the Asylum indeed.
10. Botch - We Are The Romans
A progressively perfect mess of progressively angry metalcore that for some reason is STILL NOT FEATURED ON THIS SITE.
11. Buzzov•en - ...At A Loss
I don't think I can describe this any better than how BitterCOld did: "You will hate this album. It hates you." Filthy and angry sludge with sound samples throughout the album that remind you the world is a bitch and it needs to be neutered. Thanks again, BC, for introducing this album to me. And, you know, 50% of the rest of the albums on this list and in my collection…
12. Cadaver - ...In Pains
Mr. Tumor just got malignant. Scratch that; he's damn near malevolent! Old-school death metal for the masochist in you.
13. Cautiva - Human
Taste that metallic coppery taste in your mouth? That's blood. Tastes good, don't it? Your tongue probably hurts like hell, though. Bet José Travieso's tongue hurts, too. I can't imagine doing vocals like that would be easy. Probably just as hard as it was to get into. Technical thrash of a sort from Spain.
14. Coffinworm - When All Became None
I went in expecting something like Dragged Into Sunlight. And you know what? That's what I got. I ain't complaining. There's just something about listening to Start Saving For Your Funeral and watching that scene on The Temptations miniseries where Paul Williams kills himself thinking "AW, SHIT, NIGGA! WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!" Oh, I'm a horrible person.
15. Converge - Jane Doe
…And to think, this album is the product of a messy breakup. First time I heard this, I thought it was Grindcore. Still do, actually, but I don't dare say it aloud lest I be branded clueless about subgenres by guys like Marcel and even Troy if he were still here. I miss Troy. What was I talking about again? Oh yeah. Angry as hell album.
16. Cro-Mags - The Age Of Quarrel
So I just realized I DON'T have a crossover album here yet. I believe it's time I rectified that with the debut of cult classic New Yorkians the Cro-Mags. When you're doing 25-to-life for being part of a good deal gone bad, this album will pat you on the back and say "Don't drop the soap!"
17. Dead Congregation - Graves Of The Archangels
I stand by my previous assessment of this album being like "Decay Metal." This is horrifying death metal. Bleak and haunting, but the anger is tangible as the ghosts haunting this graveyard.
18. Deathspell Omega - Fas - Ite, Maledicti, In Ignem Aeternum
Where is your god? That is all.
19. Demolition Hammer - Epidemic Of Violence
DAMN! I had a similar instance to this album (and the just-as-good previous effort Tortured Existence) like I did with Immolation. This is a heavy, brutal and geometrically-sound thrash album from the 90s.
20. Discharge - Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing
Hardcore! Amirite?
21. Disembowelment - Transcendence Into The Peripheral
If Will Smith were here, he'd call this "The Garden of Eden... AT NIGHT!" Crushing and legendary death doom. Personally, I'd recommend their self-titled compilation, since it's all this and more, but this is the core of their efforts.
22. Dragged Into Sunlight - Hatred For Mankind
I need a shower.
23. Dying Fetus - Killing On Adrenaline
Still nothing. Shit, I think my clever description quips are running dry. It's angry, though, but I probably don't need to tell you that.
24. Esoteric - The Pernicious Enigma
Well, "mad" in a different sense of the word. Almost two hours of crushing funeral doom telling us why humanity sucks. Almost makes you wanna believe them.
25. Exhorder - Slaughter In The Vatican
Let's put aside the whole "which came first, the chicken or the egg" bit for a while and talk about this album. Vicious Slayer-esque thrash with a death metal tone. Though they wouldn't sound totally like groove until their following album, this album is an underrated gem alongside The Law. Unlike The Law, however, Slaughter In The Vatican is a maaaad as hell album.
26. Exodus - Tempo of the Damned
I can't call myself a fan of Exodus' early stuff. Their debut was decent but not spectacular, not to mention the other albums that came afterwards. But this album is where the band got its balls back. It's like when Garth Ennis was brought in to revamp the Punisher. I hate Garth Ennis and The Punisher, but you catch my drift, right? Embrace the anger and blacklist the nearest wife-beater you know.
27. Extreme Noise Terror - Holocaust In Your Head
The name says it all.
28. Eyehategod - Take As Needed For Pain
This album is Al Bundy telling you how much you suck and how pathetic your life is. This album is Dr. Venture knowing he can do better than you (and actually doing so). This album is my first foray into sludge and my most memorable. Misantropic and dirty stuff from the part of New Orleans that missed the Girls Gone Wild tour.
29. Goatwhore - Blood For The Master
A personal favorite of mine from 2012. It's angry. It's filthy. It's fun. It's Goatwhore in a nutshell!
30. Godflesh - Streetcleaner
Crushing, unforgiving, loud; this is the musical equivalent to a Combine Smart Barrier: A giant wall that slowly and loudly drags itself forward, crushing all poor saps that happen to be under it at the time. Imagine you're poor Gordon Freeman in Nova Prospekt, trying to outrun this bastard. That's what I felt like when I first listened to this.
31. Hell - Human Remains
Alright, maybe my inner-fanboy demanded this album be put on here, but it can all be shrugged aside. This album… is hell. Anger almost seems irrelevant, and it is proof you don't have to sound nasty to be nasty. Every song invokes some kind of evil, whether you're fighting side-by-side with it (Let Battle Commence), whether it's in the air (Plague And Fyre), on top (Save Us From Those Who Would Save Us) or simply within you (The Devil's Deadly Weapon). The devil is within us all, and he's seething with rage.
32. Iced Earth - Burnt Offerings
The happiest album on the list, but the darkest of Iced Earth and possibly in all power metal (or whatever IE could be classified as). Burnt Offerings feels like a marathon reading of every tragedy that Shakespeare has ever written from the mournful ending of Romeo and Juliet (Last December) to the treachery of Macbeth (the title track) to that silly play where even the Fool is hung (Creator Failure), with Dante Alighieri's own tragedy headlining a 16 minute trip through Hell. Cast your body to the flames.
33. Immolation - Close To A World Below
Blasphemous, heavy and like standing in front of a raging fire, this has to be the crowning achievement of Immolation. I remember putting this on thinking this would be another one of those under-produced dime-a-dozen death metal acts, only to be shot in the face execution-style. It's crushing and angry, it's prime-cut death metal from New York.
34. Ion Dissonance - Breathing Is Irrelevant
...I got nothing.
35. Insect Warfare - World Extermination
The earth has died. You're one of the last people on it slowly dying due to useless days spent inhaling its toxic air. That doesn't mean you should be feeling a soul-crushing and heart-wrenching agony that most doom/funeral doom/death doom albums in this situation try to portray. It means you feel angry. How dare those bastards do this to your home planet?! WHAT, THE WAY THINGS WERE WASN'T GOOD ENOUGH FOR YA?! I'ma take out my anger on some blackened, leafless trees!
36. Korn - Korn
I'd call this another WTF moment, but to my surprise, this album is actually pretty well-received on this site, even if Korn as a whole isn't. I'm so fucking proud of y'all! Anyway, even if they tried consistently to match the anger on later albums and failing, this album is angry and filthy nu metal in its prime, and one of the closest a band's ever come to reflecting teenage angst and anger.
37. Liberteer - Better To Die On Your Feet Than Live On Your Knees
The people's metal. Fast, vicious and stewed with enough anarchy to make even Johnny Rotten say "DAMN!" This album is a revolution fought, and one you don't know you win until you hear the fireworks at the very end. ¡Viva La Raza!
38. Life Of Agony - River Runs Red
NOTE: This New York hardcore act would like to remind you that it doesn't condone the actions of the main character in this sick concept album, no matter how pathetic your life is. Grim hardcore from the mean streets of Brooklyn at a time when grunge ruled.
39. Lord Mantis - Pervertor
*Points at you* Ant. *Points at album* Boot.
40. Machine Head - Burn My Eyes
Made by a couple of disgruntled kids born from the ashes of the LA Riots, Burn My Eyes is essentially what Body Count's debut should've been. White guys singing about racial prejudice or urban decay in inner city LA may seem funny at first glance, but I wouldn't mock their fast-blazers like Blood For Blood and their heavy hitters like Death Church without feeling like someone would pull a Rodney King on me.
41. Man Must Die - ...Start Killing
Short, but sweet and vicious tech death. And here I thought I was getting bored of the genre. Start listening.
42. The Meads Of Asphodel - The Murder Of Jesus The Jew
Are you tired of all those kvlt, anti-religious black metal bands that don more make-up than most glam metal artists and don't know the true meaning of the inverted cross? I know I was, and I'm sure TMOA were, too. This is a different kind of anger: Why has the image of Jesus Christ been twisted into a form that only fits what people WANT to see? TMOA try to reveal the truth. Gutsy.
43. Megadeth - Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?
I was reluctant to add this one, because it felt too... obvious, if you get what I mean. Listening to it again, I can't help but think what a crying shame it is that Dave will never go back to this.
44. Meshuggah - I
Meshuggah was a given here, but this 22-minute long jam session is probably the one Meshuggah release that I really enjoy. There's no structure or form, it just goes where it pleases and does so brutally. It's a 22 minute long bit of the worship of the sick and degenerative.
45. Ministry - Rio Grande Blood
"…And now, a message from the president of the United States, George W. Bush." Do-do-do… SMASH! That's where it starts, and how it ends with the deranged ring leader Jello Bafia inviting us to the show and the beautiful Liz Constantine seducing us only proves that us poor Americans can't seem to catch a break, aside from a few broken bones and shattered spirits. If Uncle Sam heard this album, he'd weep and then continue In Search After His Lost Honor.
46. Misery Signals - Of Malice And The Magnum Heart
Progcore with Devin Townsend-esque production. I mean, really.
47. Mitochondrion - Parasignosis
One of those recurring albums that appears on both lists mentioned in the description (like the one above). This is one of those Death Metal+ (as !J.O.O.E.! cleverly put it) bands that've been coming out of the woodwork en masse. I await for more of them with great anticipation, but until then, this rampaging beast will have to satisfy me.
48. Nailbomb - Point Blank
Hate is reality. At least, that's what Max Cavelera must've felt when he formed this single-album side-project that was the industrial thrash metal outfit Nailbomb. The cover alone should tell you that this is not an album to fuck with. We never do find out if that poor girl lives or not. Judging by the anger in this album, I'm gonna say that pic has a bad end.
49. Nails - Unsilent Death
So this is Powerviolence? Huh.
50. Nine Inch Nails - The Downward Spiral
51. Onslaught - Sounds Of Violence
You hear that? That is the sound of a thrash band from England forgetting its subpar 80s days and embracing a hell bending modern sound with ferocious riffs, nasty vocals that almost border death growling and some dark as shit lyrics. I love it when old thrash masters (Overkill, Exodus, Onslaught) prove they still got some mettle in their metal. Did I seriously just say that?
52. Pantera - The Great Southern Trendkill
Rather than be cliché and put the likes of Cowboys or Vulgar on here, the honor for Angriest Album goes to Pantera's own TGST. Whatever conflict between the band that must've been bad enough to force Anselmo to record the vox for this album a couple of states away can be felt in songs like the title track, War Nerve and even softer bits like Floods and the first half of Suicide Note. Don't even get me started on the second half. They CAN destroy your body.
53. Pessimist - Death From Above
Yet another album introduced to me by Mechanist, this time of the German thrash variety. This is the album I wish Sodom's last one was. Impact is absolutely imminent.
54. Pig Destroyer - Prowler In The Yard
It was a tough decision putting this or Terrifyer on here, but regardless but these guys do it with guile and affable style, and this album is probably the closest thing to a serial killer making an album. Charles Manson doesn't count.
55. Primitive Man - Scorn
"Oh, how awful! Did he at least die painlessly? ...To shreds, you say. *Clicks tongue* Well, how's his wife holding up? ...To shreds, you say. Very well, then."
56. Prong - Cleansing
This is less of a "beat the bastard up now" anger and more like "simmer down your fury and wait for the opportune moment to strike, because revenge is a dish best served burned" anger.
57. Psychotic Pulse - Psychotic Pulse
This is essentially SYL V2, without Devin's unique voice but a good screamer in its place and the wall of processed anger still there. Thanks again, Mechanist.
58. Rage Against The Machine - Rage Against The Machine
As said, I am far from a RatM fan, but it's called RAGE Against The Machine for a reason.
59. Ringworm - Hammer Of The Witch
60. Rottrevore - Iniquitous
I don't normally waste my time with so-called "underrated death metal" because it usually isn't. There's always exceptions, though, Rottrevore being the ugliest of examples.
61. Rotten Sound - Exit
MOAR GRIND! Honestly, what's stopping me from including every grindcore album ever made? ...NOTHING! But I got to keep my standards.
62. The Secret - Solve Et Coagula
I need a chemical bath.
63. Shining - IV - The Eerie Cold
"I think we ought to start our life old. And we have all the pain, and we're feeble. And we look at our friends, and they're feeble, they're 100. But every day we get younger, and we have something to look forward to. No need to kill yourself, there's hope. And then when you reach 20, 19, 12, 10...every day is really a new day. And it's really a miracle. And then you're a baby, and you don't know your life is ending, you just suck on your mother's tit and then you die..."
64. Slipknot - Slipknot
Yeah, you're not Eyeless. You are indeed seeing Slipknot on here. Get it out of your system. But I remember first listening to this album when I was maybe 14 and, like many of my previous demographic, I felt it was the angriest, nastiest thing I've ever heard. Obviously, the effect has worn down a tad since my swan dive into metal, but it's still as biting and unique as it is today.
65. Strapping Young Lad - City
Raw, unpasteurized anger incarnate from the depths of mad musician Devin Townsend's unmedicated mind, City is a wall of sound that will blast you to pieces. By the time it lets up from its fury and unleashes its slower but more cynical side with the Cop Shoot Cop cover and Spirituality, it won't make a difference. You're already dead.
66. Warbringer - Worlds Torn Asunder
Probably the meatiest album to come out of this Resurgence or whatever Guib calls it. What's that? New thrash is a pale rip-off of the old, classic stuff? Sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of my freedom. Keep calm and OPEN FIRE!
67. Watchmaker - Kill. Fucking. Everyone.
"What do you mean 'everyone?'" "EVERRRYYYONNEE!!"
68. Whitechapel - Whitechapel
The latest album on the list and the latest of the Tennessee sextet, this is my picture of deathcore (no, Willy, I don't care for Despised Icon) and how it should be: Angry, catchy and still death metal at heart. Props to Whitechapel (and other various bands from the same time) for coming out and proving Deathcore was more than met the eye.
69. Wormrot - Dirge
Is $10 too much for this album? Wormrot might think so.

I would recommend All Pigs Must Die's 2013 album Nothing Violates This Nature, seems like it'd fit in nicely here.

I think someone suggested that a bit ago. I'll have to get on it.

It's a great album. I actually wrote the little commentary of it for the MSA. So I also agree with the recommendation.

Yeah, I don't think it quite got the attention it deserved last year. It's a beast, core album of 2013 for me and one of my most played overall.
