47.) In Flames- Clayman

Clayman, In Flames Best work *Fully expects some hate for that statement*. It has everything that I'm looking for in a Melodic Death Metal album. Elements of Pop, Thrash, a little Prog, and overall just catchy fun, and badass Metal. Something that has been lost over the years. After this album is when In Flames, to most people started their detour into shit. I don't agree, that didn't happen until A Sense Of Purpose, and even more so with the new album *The song Liberation will be hitting your local rock station shortly, if not already. it's just....wrong* But for the highest peak in In Flames' history. Clayman is their best by far. One listen should be all the proof you need.

Favorite song: Pinball Map

46.) Blind Guardian- At The Edge Of Time

Blind Guardian is the best Power Metal band still going today. Every one of their albums are classic and deserve this spot just as much as this album...but this album hit home for me more then the rest. At The Edge Of Time is the definition of Epic. from the opening of Sacred World, to the pure Power Metal intensity that is A Voice In The Dark. Hansi is just a legendary badass. Plain and simple. Seeing them live back in November 2010, was one of the highlights of my concert going experience. Live, the songs are just as amazing. While there are tons and tons of other great Power Metal bands out there, Blind Guardian is at the top. and At The Edge Of Time, is the perfect place to start.

Favorite Song: A Voice In The Dark

Very surprised you picked BG's latest album. To me, Imaginations... takes the cake. Really liked At The Edge of Time though!

Atheist RULE.

Clayman is the only In Flames record I like from start to finish.

I'm surprised at the Blind Guardian pick as well, but it's absolutely whopper nontheless!

Yeah, I figured that At The Edge Of Time would get a few Eyebrows, but I'm glad to see that people do it agree that is is a great album.

Clayman is an excellent record and one of their best but not THE best.

Yeah that's another controversial one. Honestly there isn't a bad in Flames album till A Sense Of Purpose. But that's just me.

I'm starting work on the next 5 now.

45.) Sepultura- Chaos A.D.

Sepultura lost me after this album. No, not just because Max Cavalera left after Roots. But because the music to me, got stale after this album. But Chaos A.D. ...........DAMN! This is GROOVE Metal. It covers so many territories (no pun intended) on this album from Thrash and almost Death Metal, to the Groove Metal that makes it so catchy. Igor Cavalera is absolutely phenomenal on this album and I will say his best work. It's what inspired me to be more free flowing with my own drumming. and the production on this album was stellar for a 1993 Metal album. Everything before Chaos A.D. is some of the finest Thrash/Death Metal out there, but this Chaos A.D. was the perfect transition album, although their transition went wrong....oh so wrong. This is my favorite of the Sepultura discography. Just give a listen to understand why.

Favorite Song: Territory

44.) Carcass- Heartwork

There's not much that needs to be said about one of the best Melodic Death metal bands to ever exist? Heartwork pretty much says it all. While their earlier stuff was by far Grindcore. Heartwork is a transition album, like Chaos A.D. before it,t hat transition them to a more Melodic sound, but unlike Sepultura, it didn't ruin their sound. It's Melodic, it's heavy, it's brutal. And it all fits together so very well. If you are a metal fan, you must own this album, or at least appreciate it for what it is, One of the best Metal albums ever made.

Favorite Song: This Mortal Coil
