    My 100 favorite metal albums (a list)

    One could certainly get that impression from your list if you include stuff like The Sound of Perseverance as the best that particular subgenre has to offer. Pretty much all Atheist is better than that album.

    What Are You Listening To?

    Testimonia - s/t I found out about this band a couple of weeks ago. Italian technical thrash from 1993 and it's really good. It's nice to see that Sadist wasn't entirely alone in doing more progressive endeavors.

    Exodus - Pleasures of the Flesh You know, it's kind of ludicrous how formative this band was to thrash and they basically get ignored overall. Seriously, this album could have just been a recording of Gary Holt's solos and it still would have destroyed Among the Living.

    In Flames - Whoracle The decline was much more gradual than many people would let on. Even albums this early seemed comparatively unremarkable to their contemporaries. The most baffling period of popularity and acclaim for this band easily had to be when they released Clayman. 2000 was such a booming year in the genre and of all the albums that blew up, it was the horrifically tedious sign of their much worse days that would mark the '00s.

    Mayhem

    I agree with Deathcrush being third on Requiem's rating.

    80's and 90's metal vs. nowdays metal

    The problem is that the older material is revered for a variety of different reasons other than simply establishing the genre. Many of the bands operating today would be nothing without the innovations brought forth from bands in the '80s and '90s. That's clearly something worth considering.

    8/10 I really dig Walkyier's lyricism on this album and the riffs on this track are pretty badass. I still prefer Japanese Sabbat to this overall and there were better albums from '89 but this is rather good regardless.
