Best Metal Albums of 2015

The Top Ten

The Book Of Souls - Iron Maiden The Book Of Souls - Iron Maiden Product Image

Bruce Dickinson had throat cancer during the recording of this album and the vocals are out of this world and this is a 40 year band and these guys are in there late 50's and early 60's and still bringing out Epics and Fantastic Material. Up The Irons!

Bruce had CANCER?! Then how did he sing Empire of the Could so perfectly?! - PhoenixAura81

Should be 1 no doubt

Kicks more ass than all of these combined one of their best album. And I guess beyound the red mirror is amazing too hell yeah

Beyond the Red Mirror - Blind Guardian Beyond the Red Mirror - Blind Guardian Product Image

This album is gorgeous. Anybody who sees this list should take the time to listen to this album, it is a gift sent by the gods.

Epic. Perfect. The best.

Great, it should be number 2, definitely better than that Ghost album, Ghost sucks!

Meliora - Ghost Meliora - Ghost Product Image

This list was made before most of these albums ever came out.

One of the most generic music I've ever heard, with too many rip offs.

Honest to Satan, flawless!

Awesome album. Definitely their best.

Repentless - Slayer Repentless - Slayer Product Image
The Pale Emperor - Marilyn Manson The Pale Emperor - Marilyn Manson Product Image

I love MM, but this album isn't metal. It's alternative/blues rock.

F.E.A.R.- Papa Roach
From the Very Depths - Venom From the Very Depths - Venom Product Image
The Anthropocene Extinction - Cattle Decapitation The Anthropocene Extinction - Cattle Decapitation Product Image

The best extreme metal album of this year.

Best death metal album of the year, and my favorite cattle decap album next to monolith of inhumanity. Great album! Worth a listen

Repentless SUCKED, like any other Slayer album after Seasons.

LOG's third best album! Listen to this album and you'll know its just as good as ashes of the wake or sacrament.

Underworld - Symphony X Underworld - Symphony X Product Image

Very consistent record with references to previous albums. To Hell and Back is the best metal song of the year and my new favourite Symphony X song.

One of symphony x's best album. You've got to listen to this if you like blind guardian.

Condition Hüman - Queensrÿche

Great mashup of subgenres.

Fallen - Stryper Fallen - Stryper Product Image
Return to Forever - Scorpions Return to Forever - Scorpions Product Image

This album really impressed me. Leviathan was just a blip on the radar to me until this came out

Polaris - Tesseract Polaris - Tesseract Product Image

This should be higher. Tesseract is a very underrated prog band

Juggernaut: Alpha - Periphery Juggernaut: Alpha - Periphery Product Image
Decadent - U.D.O. Decadent - U.D.O. Product Image
Rooted - Metallica

Metallica didn't released an album in 2015.

Absolutely best album of 2015.

Listen to No Way Out.
