6Joey Sturgis

I like the way his albums sound. The drums especially, they sound really punchy. But anyway, he's worked with bands like Oceano, Miss May I and The Devil Wears Prada. I'm not a fan of his work with Asking Alexandria or any of those other bands, but his albums sound really good regardless. - MetalFoREVer1228

7Mark Lewis

I believe he works with Suecof. He's worked with my 2 favorite deathcore bands, Whitechapel and Carnifex. He's also worked with Deicide, Dååth, God Forbid, and others. - MetalFoREVer1228


Not much is really known of him other than he's worked with the likes of Lamb of God, Suicide Silence, and Miss May I - MetalFoREVer1228

Great producer.

10Andy Sneap

We want him for one maiden album

The Contenders

11Flemming Rasmussen

Produced Metallica's Ride The Lightning, Master Of Puppets, and... And Justice For All. He also produced Morbid Angel's Covenant.

Superb work with Metallica, and then broke all records (in my opinion) with By Inheritance.

Why Flemming Rasmussen isn't higher on this list is beyond me

12Colin Richardson

Produced great albums with the likes of Machine Head, Bullet for My Valentine, Carcass, and Trivium. - MetalFoREVer1228

One of, if not the best metal(core) producer, Rise To Remain, Trivium, Bullet...
