Best Metal Albums of 2018Metal_Treasure
The Top Ten
Oh yeah! This album was awesome! All of the tracks were just plain awesomeness and I loved all the guitars! - UltraLunalaX
Gotta say, I really enjoyed this one. Well done Judas Priest. - cjWriter1997
Priest are still the metal gods they were back in the 70's.
I'd place this one between Defenders and Painkiller. A great return to form! - Relixx599V 2 Comments
This band... Hands down.
I liked a YouTube comment on Obscura's new album: "It is ironic that a band named OBSCURA has made everything so clear."
100% true. - Metal_Treasure
Such prog, Such feels. - InsanityJoe
Great album (progressive/ technical death metal)
List to check out - Best Songs On Augury's Illusive Golden Age - Metal_Treasure
That's a really really good album! - Metal_Treasure
If you liked this album you should definitely check their album Deathless. That album is a flawless masterpiece. - InsanityJoe
Great is our sin is the best.
The combination of folk element and death metal is SUPERB.
The vocals are perfect too.
Definitely recommend it. - InsanityJoe
That's a pretty good album, guys - Metal_Treasure
Even without Abbath the band still kicks ass! Love the album! - InsanityJoe
Prog death with sax
This is a really heavy album from Australia - contains Experimental Death Metal.
Sounds like Gorguts meets Morbid Angel meets Nile, and more. - Metal_Treasure
Just to let people know this band isn't on the Metal Archives which means they aren't metal and shouldn't be on this list. - Metal_Treasure
That has to be one of the dumbest, most narrow-minded reasons to not include this album as a contender. The metal archives isn't the definitive source for metal music. Matter of fact, there's a lot of good metal bands that aren't even on there. That's like saying an album doesn't deserve credit because it doesn't have a Wikipedia article. It's a stupid argument. - MetalFoREVer1228
An interesting combination of black metal and spiritual/gospel music. Sounds silly on paper, but in practice, you'd be surprised by just how good it is. The lead single "Gravedigger's Chant" is both catchy and powerful, and the closing track "Built on Ashes" is honestly one of the most beautiful tracks I've heard in a long time. - MetalFoREVer1228
Cool that this album is getting love. - djpenquin999
This is Stoner Rock. With long, slow and repetitive songs about weed. How can you think this is metal? This is like the opposite of metal - musically and lyrically. - Metal_Treasure
Well it can be argued that this is stoner/doom metal. It doesn't have to be fast or about killing someone's dog.
These guys are one of the biggest sabbath worshipers.
I mean if you say these guy's aren't metal then Black Sabbath isn't metal. - InsanityJoe
Pure and classic
Absolutely perfect power metal! - James_Hetfield
In my humble opinion this album is better than their last album.
Good album not bad. Will have fun while listening, but it's not on the level of their first three albums. - InsanityJoe
Brutal, Holmes is a freak.
Correct spelling: Àmr (or Amr) - Metal_Treasure
8/10, I enjoyed the album. Kinda reminded me of Chinese folk music. - InsanityJoe
Never liked this band but really like this album, kicks serious ass.
The album cover is super cool
This album is OK. But nothing more than that.
Visigoth are a new Power/Heavy Metal band from the US formed in 2010. - Metal_Treasure
Wow this year is a good year for technical death metal - InsanityJoe
This album was terrible.
I miss the real Machine Head that made masterpieces like Unto The Locust and The Blackening.
That was actually very disappointing - Metal_Treasure
This happened to be one of their best recent albums. Most of it is progressive/technical thrash - it sounds like the thrash version of Rush or King Crimson.
Voivod drummer "Away" said "Our new album "The Wake" is vintage Voivod with a new twist". I would agree with that. - Metal_Treasure
I was disappointed to be honest. I'm so sorry to say this band was good in the past. But now they offer generic compositions (esp. riffs) and bad vocal delivery. - Metal_Treasure
