I've been listening to metal since the mid '90s, but for some reason I never really got into any of the older black metal bands. I'm almost glad I saved them until now because albums that are over a decade old sound really fresh.


Old Immortal is classic. Everyone has their favorite from the past. The fun part is investigating each one as they are all different in ways. You can hear the Bathory influence but still they are their own original sound like no one else. At The Hart Of Winter has a great guitar sound too.

Pure Holocaust shows the band with it's early hyper-speed.

 

 

 

Carpathian Forest is at the top of the cute metal wave too!

Their new album following a 2006 release drops this year, so maybe we will read more about these cute guys in this thread.

This was actually not unpleasant to listen to.

It would also help if it were well-known music so I maximize my chances of someone stopping by and being familiar with the album.

Hmmm I guess you are looking for something like this:


Everyone who listens to metal knows this album. Everyone.

Definitely, and I think that everyone should know "Hell Awaits," their album previous to "Reign in Blood" that sometimes gets overlooked:

Mark, it's kind of hard to know where to start because there are a schiit ton of genres within in metal and 40 plus year of music.

 

I've been listening to metal and hard rock since the late 70's!

 

I'm no music critic and this is just my taste, but I believe here are some fantastic metal and hard rock across a few genres albums in in no particular order:

 

CM (classic metal/hard rock), alt (alternative, stoner, etc). DM (death metal) BM (black metal)

 

AC/DC-Highway to Hell and High Voltage CM

Iron Maiden-The Number of the Beast, Piece of Mind or Power slave CM

Judas Priest-any of the following: Stained Glass, Sad Wings of Destiny, British Steel, Screaming for Vengeance, Defenders of the Faith CM

Metallica-Ride the Lightning and Master of Puppets CM

Slayer as stated CM

Motorhead-start with Ace of Spades CM

Tool-Lateralus or Enima Alt

Kyus-Blues for the Red Sun or Sky  Valley alt

Isis-Oceanic or Panoptican-Alt/post metal

Neurosis-anything! I like Through Silver and Blood alt/post-But I like all their stuff...

Monster Magnet-Power Trip, Dopes to Infinity alt/classic sounding hard rock

Soundgarden-Bad Motor Finger alt

Dark Tranquility-Character or Damage Done DM

Opeth-Blackwater Park or Ghost Reveries DM/Prog

Enslaved-Frost, Ritiir, Vertebrae, Run or isa BM/prog

At the Gates-Slaughter of the Soul DM

Immortal-At the Heart of Winter BM

Emperor-Anthem at the Welken at Dusk BM

Behemoth-Demigod DM

Gorgoroth-Under Sign of Hell, Ad Marjorem Sathanas Glorium BM

Marduk-Wormwood, Plague Angel, Rom: 512

 

This list has about a million holes....what I thought of off the top of my head

 

Cheers!

I do, but for some reason I've never liked slayer... 

Of the "big four", I like Metallica and Megadeth the most, and listen to some occasional Anthrax, but Slayer never clicked for me.

Me neither. I do listen to Metallica from time to time but that's about it.
We already had the whole "Exodus should be part of the Big Four"-discussion so....Exodus ftw.

Reign In Blood is definitely the most popular choice among the metalheads. It's my favorite too. However  markheadphonium mentioned being well-known as a factor, and Metallica's Master Of Puppets has far more crossover mainstream appeal. Heads might prefer Ride The Lightning. Third choice for s quintessential example might be Iron Maiden's The Number Of The Beast.

Master of puppets has the bonus of having decent sound (on the DCC gold remaster especially)
post #14264 of 25554

Thanks everyone. I'll try downloading a track off Reign in Blood and see what I think.

Would also throw in a couple of Black Sabbath seminal releases...from the Ozzy Years- Master of Reality pretty much invented what is "doom" and Paranoid is a classic. And from the Dio Years-Heaven and Hell is essential.
