Most influental Metal albums...
Right now I am working on a Spotifyplaylist containing the most influental metalalbums of all time. I would like to get to maybe fifty albums and hope would like to help with suggestions on what I am missing.
The list right now is:
Iron Maiden - TNOTB
Judas Priest - British Steel
Black Sabbath - Paranoid
At The Gates - Slaughter of the Soul
Slayer - Reign in Blood
Deep Purple - Machine Head
Dio - Holy Diver
Sepultura - Chaos A.D.
Faith No More - Angel Dust
Slipknot - S/t
Nine Inch Nails - The Downward Spiral
Black Sabbath - Heaven & Hell
Ozzy - Blizzard of Ozz
Megadeth - Rust in Peace
Opeth - Blackwater Park
Dissection - Storm of the Lightīs Bane
Morbid Angel - Covenant
Napalm Death - Scum
Kiss - Destroyer
Pantera - Vulgar Display of Power
Darkthrone - Transilvanian Hunger
Mastodon - Leviathan
Rush - Moving Pictures
Alice in Chains - Dirt
So there should be twenty-six more albums on that list. And if you donīt use spotify. There are some artists whose music arnīt available. For instance Metallica, AC/DC and Tool would have had albums on the playlist if they were available.
I would also have Reinventing The Steel by Pantera on there. That was the epitome of their progression to heavy, southern metal and I think the vocal performance and riffs you hear on TGSTK and RTS (more so RTS) influenced a lot of metal you hear today.
Mayhem - De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas
Bathory - any of the first four
Death - Scream Bloody Gore or Leprosy, or Symbolic maybe?
Cynic - Focus
Venom - Black Metal
Suffocation - Effigy of the Forgotten
Carcass - most likely Heartwork, but Reek of Putrefaction or Symphonies of Sickness
In Flames - The Jester Race
Dark Tranquillity - The Gallery
Cannibal Corpse - Tomb of the Mutilated
thats all i can think of for now.
Venom- Black Metal
Good call on putting Angel Dust from FNM on the list. It influenced the nu-metal sound of the late 90s and 2000s. The album was way ahead of it's time. Unfortunately it inspired garbage like Korn. But they also influenced some decent bands like Slipknot and SOAD. I'm not sure how Slipknot's first album makes the list though as you're still missing A LOT of albums that meant more to metal than that one ever will.
Here's a few more to add:
Metallica - Master Of Puppets (honestly how did you forget this:confused:)
Anthrax- Among The Living
Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath, Master Of Reality, Volume 4, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and Sabotage.
Yes, all those Sabbath albums are that important:rocker:
Iron Maiden-Piece Of Mind
Between The Buried and Me-Colors
At The Gates - The Red In The Sky Is Ours
Candlemass - Epicus Doomicus Metallicus "and/or" Nightfall
Gorgoroth - Antichrist "and/or" Pentagram
Morbid Angel - Altars Of Madness
Carcass- Necroticism: Descanting The Insalubrious
Bathory- Under The Sign of The Black Mark
Celtic Frost- To Mega Therion
Van Halen- Van Halen
Children of Bodom- Hatebreeder
Helloween- Keeper of the Seven Keys Part 2

Probably a little bit early to tell on this one.

Indeed, I'd say anything younger than 5 years is pushing it...
