I am addicted to list making. :eyes: :(

Oh, me too, but I invested too much time into the 2000s lists and the dozen lists I'm doing for 2009, never mind that I am contractually obligated to make decade-end lists for the newspaper. I just don't need to backtrack a full decade right now. :lol:

This started off easy and got really hard. Most people would say the 90's were a huge down period for music but some of the best albums of all time came out during that period. They're not all metal obviously and I only listed 1 cd per band which was tough. Antichrist Superstar is an incredible album but there are songs on Portrait that are some of my favorites. Just missing are 2 classics from 1989 Morbid Angel - Altars of Sacrifice & Overkill - The Years of Decay. Both would have been top 5-6 for me.

1. Pantera - Vulgar Display of Power
2. Fear Factory - Demanufacture
3. Slipknot - Slipknot
4. Alice In Chains - Dirt
5. Tool - Aenima
6. Ministry - Psalm 69
7. Faith No More - King for a Day, Fool for a Lifetime
8. Marilyn Manson - Portrait of an American Family
9. Slayer - Seasons in the Abyss
10. Machine Head - Burn My Eyes
11. Sepultura - Chaos A.D.
12. Soundgarden - Superunknown
13. NIN - The Downward Spiral
14. Nirvana - Nevermind
15. Megadeth - Rust in Peace
16. Prong - Beg to Differ
17. Death - Symbolic
18. Korn - Life is Peachy
19. Pearl Jam - Ten
20. White Zombie - Astro Creep 2000
