Best Metal Albums of 2018
The Top Ten
This was a great album. My favorite song here is actually Sea of Red. - PhoenixAura81
Oh yeah! This album was awesome! All of the tracks were just plain awesomeness and I loved all the guitars! - UltraLunalaX
I'd place this one between Defenders and Painkiller. A great return to form! - Relixx599
Gotta say, I really enjoyed this one. Well done Judas Priest. - cjWriter1997
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
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. It sounds quite poppy at times but it's good for beginner metal fans. - 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.
Best album cover art!
Prog death with sax
Very cool - FacUtGaudeam
Even without Abbath the band still kicks ass! Love the album! - InsanityJoe
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
Cool that this album is getting love. - djpenquin999
This is a really heavy album from Australia - contains Experimental Death Metal.
Sounds like Gorguts meets Morbid Angel meets Nile, and more. - Metal_Treasure
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
Best 1 so far, old Nick sounds possessed, and the brutal riffs crush the old bloodbath albums into dust period.
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.
Absolutely perfect power metal! - James_Hetfield
I doubt this is metal - Metal_Treasure
Pure and classic
8/10, I enjoyed the album. Kinda reminded me of Chinese folk music. - InsanityJoe
Correct spelling: Àmr (or Amr) - Metal_Treasure
Never liked this band but really like this album, kicks serious ass.
Wow this year is a good year for technical death metal - InsanityJoe
This album just blew me away - Okk
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
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
