Top Ten Darkest Albums by the Most Famous Metal Bands


The Top Ten

1 Hell Awaits - Slayer
2 The Great Southern Trendkill - Pantera
3 Peace Sells... But Who's Buying - Megadeth
4 The X Factor - Iron Maiden
5 ... and Justice for All - Metallica

Greatest Metal Album Ever - FettiMC

My favorite metal album. - LizardKing99

6 Persistence of Time - Anthrax
7 Iowa - Slipknot

This should be higher. It's filled with a sinister atmosphere, brutal instrumentation, and several dark lyrical themes. The title track is also both equally creepy and disturbing.

8 Painkiller - Judas Priest
9 Nostradamus - Judas Priest
10 Resolution - Lamb of God

The Contenders

11 Catch Thirty Three - Meshuggah
12 The Downward Spiral - Nine Inch Nails

Not a metal band.

13 Antichrist Superstar - Marilyn Manson

Not a metal band.

14 Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
15 Tentacles of Whorror - Leviathan

Not a very famous artist (it's a one-man band), but you can't get darker than black metal. Hence why it's called black metal. If you spend entire nights awake in depression, craving a sliver of hope to break the misery...this album is your soundtrack. - ThatStrangeKid42

16 Pork Soda - Primus
17 Tomb of the Mutilated - Cannibal Corpse
18 Abigail - King Diamond
19 The Dark Saga - Iced Earth
20 Alice in Chains - Dirt
21 Alice in Chains - Alice in Chains

This album is very dark and eerie. (Ex. Frogs, Head Creeps, Sludge Factory, nothing' Song).
