Top 10 Most Important Albums in Extreme Metal History


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Heartwork - Carcass
22 Don't Break the Oath - Mercyful Fate

Just to remind you: lyrics are about Satan and the occult which was probably influential towards the lyrical themes of black metal but music of this album isn't extreme - it's rather traditional heavy metal.
I mean, this album deserves to be mentioned on this list but shouldn't be very high. - Metal_Treasure

23 Ride the Lightning - Metallica

Absolutly masterpiece.Guitar work is amazing. - pruvet

24 Epicus Doomicus Metallicus - Candlemass

Created Epic Doom Metal

25 Possessed - Seven Churches

This is a duplicate - somebody didn't notice it was already on the list and submitted it again but the correct format on this list and this site is: Seven Churches - Possessed.
I reported it's a duplicate but I don't know if and when it will be removed from the list. - Metal_Treasure

26 Under a Funeral Moon - Darkthrone
27 Transylvanian Hunger - Darkthrone
28 Effigy of the Forgotten - Suffocation
29 Enthrone Darkness Triumphant - Dimmu Borgir
30 Covenant - Morbid Angel
31 Wages of Sin - Arch Enemy
32 Lunar Strain - In Flames
33 Terminal Spirit Disease - At the Gates
34 Filosofem - Burzum

Probably the best burzum album and burzum was one of the most influential black metal bands so why is it not here already

35 Unhallowed - The Black Dahlia Murder

This album came out in 2003 and I need to be convinced that is was very important to death metal/melodic death metal (both created much earlier). - Metal_Treasure

This album is what deathcore wanted to be and failed epically.

36 Slaughter of the Soul - At the Gates
37 The Return... - Bathory
38 Dopethrone - Electric Wizard
39 Peace Sells... but Who's Buying? - Megadeth
40 Korn - Korn
