Best Metal Albums of January 2016


The Top Ten

1 The Astonishing - Dream Theater

This might just be the best Dream Theater album yet! 38 tracks of amazing musicianship! Clearly a lot of work went into this, and this is an early contender for album of the year in my book - ryanrimmel

2 Dystopia - Megadeth

The old school, thrashy Megadeth sound. Unfortunately, Dave's voice isn't what it used to be, which is why its at #3 - ryanrimmel

3 Abbath - Abbath

This album was awesome! This proves that Abbath is a metal god. Recommended for anyone who enjoys Black Metal or Immortal in general - ryanrimmel

4 In Ruin - Cauldron

Cauldron is a recent discovery of mine, and I like them a lot. They are gaining popularity for playing old school metal. Gotta love that - ryanrimmel

5 Into the Legend - Rhapsody of Fire
6 Rulebreaker - Primal Fear
7 Ghostlights - Avantasia
8 Pillars of Ash - Black Tusk
9 Et Eritis Sicut Dii - Tartarus Et Eritis Sicut Dii - Tartarus

My friends' Blackened Death Metal band's debut album. It turned out really well, and I'm sure a lot of you guys would like it. The sound is reminiscent of Behemoth or Blasphemy - ryanrimmel

10 The Raging Tides - Exumer

The Contenders

11 Hardwired... to Self-Destruct - Metallica
