Best Metal Albums Since 2000


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Dance of Death - Iron Maiden
62 Mesmerize - System of a Down
63 City of Evil - Avenged Sevenfold
64 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!

65 Killing the Dragon - Dio
66 Watershed - Opeth
67 The Glorious Burden - Iced Earth

The Gettysburg Trilogy alone is worth a place in the Top 10, All hail the Ripper!

68 The Funeral Album - Sentenced
69 Witchcult Today - Electric Wizard
70 The End of Heartache - Killswitch Engage
71 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!

72 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!

73 Indestructible - Disturbed
74 Above the Weeping World - Insomnium
75 Fiction - Dark Tranquillity
76 Leviathan - Mastodon
77 Angel of Retribution - Judas Priest
78 War is the Answer - Five Finger Death Punch

Impossible. How can you beat their songs such as Walk Away, Far from Home, Dying Breed, Nobody Gets Left Behind, and especially Bad Company.

79 Clayman - In Flames
80 To the Grave - Iron Fire
