My Top 10 Heavy Metal Labels

Love them or hate them but there is no denying that record labels are the driving force behind a lot of our favourite bands.

After all without the labels, many bands would remain unknowns languishing in small clubs and garages.

In the old days the labels used to specialise in specific genres. So for example, if you liked Death Metal then Nuclear Blast and Earache were a safe bet. Made shopping easier!

1. Noise Records - Germany
2. Roadrunner Records - Netherlands
3. Earache Records - United Kingdom
4. Century Media - United States of America
5. Nuclear Blast - Germany

Edge Of Sanity - Best To Worst

Edge of Sanity is one of my favourite bands even if their discography varies in terms of quality. Though it could never be said these guys didn't try something new. And when they got it right, it was mindblowing. I've included EPs cause I absolutely love Until Eternity Ends and couldn't exclude it as such.

1. Edge Of Sanity - Purgatory Afterglow
2. Edge Of Sanity - Crimson
3. Edge Of Sanity - Until Eternity Ends
4. Edge Of Sanity - The Spectral Sorrows
5. Edge Of Sanity - Cryptic

Top 15 Groove Metal Albums

Often loathed by fans of more underground forms of Metal, groove metal nonethless offers the metal fan a heavy yet song based and catchy listening experience. This list captures 15 of the most interesting groove metal albums (my opinion of course).

Not surprising genre pioneers Pantera dominate in the same fashion that Slayer and Metallica dominate many Thrash lists.

1. Pantera - Vulgar Display Of Power
2. Machine Head - Burn My Eyes
3. Lamb Of God - Sacrament
4. Anthrax - Sound Of White Noise
5. Sepultura - Chaos A.D.

1. Corporal Jigsore Quandary - Necroticism: Descanting The Insalubrious
2. Doctrinal Expletives - Heartwork
3. Embryonic Necropsy And Devourment - Symphonies Of Sickness
4. Genital Grinder II - Wake Up And Smell The... Carcass

A Bizarre List Of Top 20 Death Metal Albums

I'll be the first to admit I haven't got a clue about Death Metal. A lot of the traditional DM faves ala Death or Obituary have never appealed to me, let alone the uber technical side of the genre.

So here's a list of my top 20 Death Metal albums in alphabetical order. I have avoided blatantly Melodic Death Metal stuff ala Dark Tranquillity but have included the more heavier ones ala Carcass and Edge of Sanity.

1. Aborted - The Archaic Abattoir
2. Atheist - Piece Of Time
3. Bolt Thrower - Realm Of Chaos
4. Bolt Thrower - Those Once Loyal
5. Carcass - Necroticism: Descanting The Insalubrious

Favourite Album By Year

Well here's a challenge - my favourite albums for each year since 1980. A challenge because in some instances there's too many awesome albums to pick from and in other years not many stand outs.

In the end the list turns out to not be a list of overall favourites as some years featured more than one awesome album.

1. Carcass - Surgical Steel
2. Accept - Stalingrad
3. Anthrax - Worship Music
4. Overkill - Ironbound
5. Megadeth - Endgame
