Best Metal Albums Since 2000


The Contenders: Page 4

61 This Godless Endeavor - Nevermore
62 Ascendancy - Trivium

100 times better than waking the fallen and death magnetic combined

63 Dance of Death - Iron Maiden
64 Mesmerize - System of a Down
65 City of Evil - Avenged Sevenfold
66 The Devil You Know - Heaven & Hell

Ronnie James Dio's swan song was a truly fitting finale. The album is cut after cut of the heaviest riffs and power vocals you'll ever hear. Tony's ability to keep writing classics is unparallelled. Along with Geezer and Vinnie, the combined effort of these four musicians is special, and worthy of serious comparison to the classic line up. I love original Sabbath. I also love this line up equally. God rest Ronnie James Dio. His last hurrah was perfection.

While not as good as Heaven and Hell or Mob Rules, this album is still a monolithic triumph compared to most of Metal music and albums of today!

67 Killing the Dragon - Dio
68 Obzen - Meshuggah
69 Ironbound - Overkill
70 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold

Spectacular. Mike Portnoy filled in for the Rev splendidly. Best band of the 21st century.

71 Last Fair Deal Gone Down - Katatonia
72 Iowa - Slipknot
73 Imaginaerum - Nightwish
74 The Unforgiving - Within Temptation
75 In the Arms of God - Corrosion of Conformity
76 Phobia - Breaking Benjamin
77 Unleashed Memories - Lacuna Coil

It is an incredible album with gothic and dark songs that explore the deepest human emotions. It can't be missed in a list of best metal albums!

78 Until We Have Faces - Red

Just awesome, no way they should be at the bottom of this list. Christian metal has all the sound without the depression.

Just incredible, great album. Christian metal brings all of the power without the depressing. Long live Red!

79 Indestructible - Disturbed
80 Above the Weeping World - Insomnium
