Here's something which I may have submitted earlier. Albion is now defunct power metal band (2013 - 15). I'm unaware if they wrote their own songs or had things written for them.

 

They have the look, and they play fast, but they were lacking *something* (imo). A real drummer might have been nice (a good drummer can save a song which is drifting from the beat), and perhaps a rhythm guitar to round out the sound. Mostly, I find the vocals were the most significant concern. They either needed to get a different vocalist, or a supporting vocalist to counter-point the sound of the woman who was singing. A more soprano(ish) voice to compliment the singer in this song might have helped rather than relying only on backing tracks and drum machines.

& anyone who would like to participate!

 

This was brought up in another thread so I thought I'd ask here.  Your top 5 metal albums that influenced you or consider a favorite for whatever reason.  

 

Bonus points for posting a YT video of the album or fav. song and a blurb about it.

 

 

 

This list will not be as original as others. Good music is good music, even if it is now considered mainstream. 

 


 

1. Pantera - Vulgar Display of Power

 


My introduction to metal, will be forever grateful. 
 

2. Metallica - Master of Puppets

 


Probably the best metal album ever. Never gets old.


3. Ministry - The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste

 


This band is criminally underrated. Their live shows were so $&@#ing entertaining. 

 

4. Soulfly - Primitive

 

 

Incredible album reminds me of many great nights with friends and teammates. Loved that this band experimented with different genres and who doesn’t enjoy tribal drums? (And yes, also a Sepultura fan). The posted song is one of my favourites. 

 

5. Disturbed - Ten Thousand Fists In The Air

 

 

Another great album that never gets old, love that I can play it through without skipping a single track.


 

This was a difficult list to make as there are many albums that influenced me that I didn’t mention as they either aren’t really considered metal or they just did not have enough bangers IMO to make the list.
 

Some of my other loves: Surfer Rosa, Independent Worm Saloon, Nevermind, No Control, RATM, Demanufacture, Bloody Pit of Horror, Toxicity, All Hope Is Gone, Chamber Music, Doolittle, Pioughed. Also any song performed by Floor Jansen.

Haven’t read through all the pages so hope this hasn’t been post yet.

 

Pretty standard Death Metal but I just love these guys. They look like some regular dudes that just got off a construction job shift and love to head bang after work haha 

Yep. Banger. Love it. Thank you.
