There's actually a saying about that band writing their "Master of Puppets" which is supposed to mean their crowning jewel or Peak album of their career. Musicians use this saying quite often actually. Personally it's my 3rd favorite Metallica album, 2nd on a good day but now I'll chuckle every time I hear someone say that or I'll reply they made their 100th best album? hahahahaha

Carry on...

97. Demilich- Nespithe

"When the Sun Drank the Weight of Water"
"The Sixteenth Six-Tooth Son of Fourteen Four-Regional Dimensions (Still Unnamed)"
"Inherited Bowel Levitation - Reduced Without Any Effort"
"The Echo (Replacement)"
"The Putrefying Road in the Nineteenth Extremity (...Somewhere Inside the Bowels of Endlessness...)"
"(Within) The Chamber of Whispering Eyes"
"And You'll Remain... (In Pieces in Nothingness)"
"Erecshyrinol"
"The Planet That Once Used To Absorb Flesh In Order To Achieve Divinity and Immortality (Suffocated To The Flesh That It Desired...)"
"The Cry"
"Raped Embalmed Beauty Sleep"

The ugliest album ever recorded. Period. No pornogrind or shitfun or any violent lyrics death metal album will ever outdo this Frank Zappa-esque bizarre take on death metal. What’s especially notable is the vocals. Easily the most brutal vocals in death metal. Ultraboris said it best, “It sounds like he’s talking through his intestines.”

So why is such an album with such a high honor so low on this list? Well because once you heard one track on this album, you’ve kind of heard them all. It more or less suffers from the same problem as Sepultura’s Beneath The Remains. Each song tries to be everything at once without any real mapping or structure that every song ends up sounding the same. Also, these song titles are completely fucking ridiculous. A popular strawman argument is that the songtitles are that way as a complete rejection of commercial tendencies. My response to that is, why not make like Edge of Sanity and release one long 40-50 minute death metal song? Oh well. Even though every song is more or less the same, it’s still worth listening to the whole way through because after one song, you will totally need to hear more.

Oh yea, and the whole thing is free for download, right here on the band’s website. http://www.anentity.com/demilich/download.php

Reccomended song:
When The Sun Drank The Weight of Water

Interesting cover art though.

Just gotta put it out there, this list may be a lot of things, but I'm sure it's not gonna be full of hipster fodder. Still not agreeing with Puppets being that low though.

Also, is it only one album per band on this list or will there be repeated artists?

96. Judas Priest- Hell Bent For Leather

1. "Delivering the Goods"
2. "Rock Forever"
3. "Evening Star"
4. "Hell Bent for Leather"
5. "Take on the World"
6. "Burnin' Up"
7. "The Green Manalishi (With the Two-Pronged Crown)"
8. "Killing Machine"
9. "Running Wild"
10. "Before the Dawn"
11. "Evil Fantasies"

Maybe with a bit more of a push from the record company (as well as a better choice of singles to be pushed) this would have gone down in history as the bandís British Steel. Itís right here where the band truly streamlined their sound, and some moments are borrowed from on British Steel. Seriously. Take On The World was recycled into United, the chorus of Breaking The Law is kind of the same as Hell Bent For Leather, and Green Manilishi kind of has the same feel as Living After Midnight, albeit the latter has a more restrained vocal performance as well as a more LCD lyrical matter. Oh well. One thing that was common throughout 70ís Priest was their tendency to incorporate sprinkles of 70ís funk and soul throughout their music. Seriously, listen to Evil Fantasies and tell me it doesnít sound like Arethra Franklinís choice of doing a drastic image and sound change. Or that Burnin Up doesnít sound like Chef singing a steamy funk ode to the children of South Park to try and clear things up... almost 20 years before hand.

Point being, this album doesnít get nearly enough credit from the metal community. This is the real British Steel and should be treated by the populace as such (even though Screaming For Vengeance is still the best ďhard rockĒ Priest album, but thatís for another dayÖ)

Reccommended track:
Evil Fantasies

Never actually listened to Demillich before. Music's amazing, vocals....not so much. They kill it for me, unfortunately.

Already this is the best of the "my favourite albums" threads. Puppets at 100 (which people are sure to still be bitching about at page 35), Morbid Angel, Demilich... keep 'em comin'!

By the way, this is NOT a one album per band list. Iron Maiden has over 5 entries here.

Hell Bent is a really good Priest album.

All in good fun. I can think of 1 or 2 Maiden albums better than Bell Bent for Leather. 5? WOW!

I agree Demelich has incredible music. Clown Car vocals though...
