Best Metal Albums of 2015

The Top Ten

1 The Book Of Souls - Iron Maiden

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!

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

2 Meliora - Ghost

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

Epic. Perfect. The best. - Metal_Treasure

4 Repentless - Slayer
5 The Pale Emperor - Marilyn Manson

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

6 F.E.A.R.- Papa Roach
7 Immortalized - Disturbed

Even though its not as good as Red Mirror or Book of Souls its still amazing. Disturbed is back!

8 From the Very Depths - Venom

The best extreme metal album of this year. - Caleb9000

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

12 Love, Fear and the Time Machine - Riverside
13 Songs from the North I, II & III - Swallow the Sun
14 Return to Forever - Scorpions

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

16 Rooted - Metallica

Metallica didn't released an album in 2015.

Umm - ryanrimmel

17 Silence In the Snow - Trivium

Not a bad album but I wish they return to the music of shogun or ascendancy.

I saw them live and it was a great experience, including the songs from here. - Caleb9000
