Thrash Effect

Like my other genre-based lists, this exists purely for my own organizational purposes and not to provide a definitive statement about or guidebook to the thrash genre. I'm aware that there are gaps and, more importantly, things you don't agree with. If you're dying to ask why I love Gama Bomb so much and why I can't spare two minutes for Destruction, Annihilator, Tankard, etc., then please go do it somewhere else as I haven't the time to clean up after you. I will, however, accept criticism for the lack of Coroner and Voivod.

1. Slayer - Reign In Blood
2. Gama Bomb - Citizen Brain
3. Slayer - Seasons In The Abyss
4. Metallica - Ride The Lightning
5. Artillery - By Inheritance

Some Classic Death Metal

Here's a little list displaying my personal favorite death metal albums, based on the same idea as my heavy metal list, thus stressing the raw and the genuine. For me death metal has to be crushing, then coloured with atmosphere. Some of my choices may seem exotic, considering the list overall, but it's what broadens it. Rules : one album per band, the order isn't strict (still bottom albums are weaker than their predecessors). Many good tbdm bands are lacking, mostly because of their unfitting sound. If you think some kick-ass piece are missing, don't hesitate to suggest them. Enjoy.

1. Carcass - Necroticism: Descanting The Insalubrious
2. Suffocation - Pierced From Within
3. Gorguts - Obscura
4. Cynic - Focus
5. Septicflesh - Εσοπτρον

100 Greatest Metal Bands

Pretty self-explanatory, with a couple caveats: first, this is mostly just a list of my favorite metal bands in approximate order (after the top 10 or so the order matters far less), with extra weight given to influence and timelessness of sound; and second, the albums selected are not necessarily the band's "best" album, or even my personal favorite -- they are the albums that I feel best represent the band's classic sound and/or well-represent the span of their career. List includes all sub-genres of metal and some post-metal metal. Feel free to spew your hatred below. \m/ (xx) \m/

1. Black Sabbath - Paranoid
2. Iron Maiden - Powerslave
3. Metallica - Master Of Puppets
4. Judas Priest - Screaming For Vengeance
5. Slayer - Reign In Blood
