Great atmospheric folk metal from Scotland. - IronSabbathPriest

45 The Madness of Many - Animals as Leaders
46 Hellelujah - Drowning Pool
47 Into the Legend - Rhapsody of Fire
48 The Elysian Grandeval Galèriarch - Infant Annihilator

How is this so low? And why is Metallica so high up? That album sucked, like everything else they've done after the Black Album. The fact that Lady Gaga sang their own song better than them should say it all.

Infant Annihilator is an absolute blessing to metal. The EGG is one of the best albums I've heard in my life, in all genres. Brutal, eerie, and extremely creative. Aaron Kitcher is still alive, fast, and kicking (pun intended). Dickie is a total beast of a vocalist. His tunnel throat screams are spine-shivering and his lows are that of an ungodly, guttural demon. My favorite songs have to be "Soil the Stillborn", the fastest song on the album, and "Blasphemian", which has a humongous guitar solo and possibly the most brutal ending I've ever heard.

Seriously, stop upvoting Metallica just because they're 'popular'. They're not, they're irrelevant. - ThatStrangeKid42

49 Seraphical Euphony - Hyperion
50 Periphery III: Select Difficulty - Periphery
51 All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us - Architects
52 Armageddon - Equilibrium
53 Quid Pro Quo - In Extremo

55 Priests of Annihilation - Enthean
56 The Black - Asking Alexandria The Black - Asking Alexandria
57 Diamond Head - Diamond Head
58 Under Attack - Destruction
59 Sorceress - Opeth

As a fact, this album is a lot heavier than their previous two. - IronSabbathPriest

... but this isn't metal, it's prog rock and shouldn't be on this list. - Metal_Treasure

60 Arctic Thunder - Darkthrone
