Top Ten Metal Bands Who Never Released a Bad AlbumAngryByrd Most bands usually take a bad step every now and then, but not these guys. Here are ten bands that have never released a bad or universally panned album.
The Top Ten
They invent a genre, then perfect it, and then throw progressive elements at it. The recipe for a perfect discography. - AngryByrd
I totally agree, whether it's pale communication (2014) or black water park(2001) all of them are great. - Ananya
I don't care what anyone says, their last 2 albums are great. So few bands play progressive rock anymore and none do it better than Opetj - ryanrimmel
I agree 100%. Both Heritage and Pale Communion are 2 of my favorite prog rock albums ever, even compared to bands like Pink Floyd, Rush, King Crimson, etc.. My personal favorite song from their last 2 albums is The Devil's Orchard, and Moon Above, Sun Below is great as well. Their new album will most likely be pretty amazing too. - AngryByrd
Incredible vocals, amazing drums, innovative guitars, and such versatility. You'll certainly be hooked after listening to a couple of their songs. - AngryByrd
Every album is amazing, yet so unique - ryanrimmel
Tool is the Pink Floyd of heavy metal for me, so much thought is put in their music. Sure, they rarely release anything, but quality over quantity any day - ryanrimmel
It's hard to mess up with only four albums, but when each one seems to raise the standard for an almost perfect band, it's a bit hard to ignore. - AngryByrd
I know most people haven't heard this band, but believe me, they're worth listening to. All of their albums are great, as indicated by the list, but I would highly recommend Through Silver In Blood and Times of Grace - AngryByrd
Yes! Amazing, atmospheric, dark, sludgy progressive post metal. They don't really fall into any subgenre. They are very unique - ryanrimmel
The most consistent metal band I know - 10 albums as of 2015 and 30 years of improvement: every new album is better than the previous one.
Blind Guardian changed their subgenre several times but never disappointed. Moreover, they created at least one masterpiece in every subgenre they tried: from thrashy speed metal to symphonic metal. Blind Guardian did these metal subgenres in their own unique way so they didn't sound like the other bands in these subgenres. They never sold out and never did a subgenre that isn't metal. - Metal_Treasure
Pioneers of alt metal, and rock at it's finest. - AngryByrd
I honestly agree with this one, but some ok albums, like their cover album. But most of their stuff are great, - Mumbizz01
@ryanrimmel (because I noticed on the feed that he added them) - Ryan, you probably forgot about their glam metal albums like Metal Magic. The album Power Metal wasn't that bad though. - Metal_Treasure
First off, I made the list. Second, I didn't add these guys. Anything before power metal is terrible. - AngryByrd
@metaltreasure. Yeah I completely forgot about those albums, but could you really blame me for that? - ryanrimmel
When TDPDH is the 'worst' you ever did and it is still top notch, I think AIC is the obvious choice. Not even in my top 5 favourite bands, but when it comes to Cantrell and the boys releases "failling" is a word that simply doesn't exist.
Well, I don't think they've ever done a "bad" album, but none of their 90's stuff was as good as their perfect 80's albums.
I didn't add them but I agree they've never put out a bad album. A few mediocre ones but not bad at all. - IronSabbathPriestV 1 Comment
These guys are the kings of thrash, every single album that they is amazing, they are legends. How the HELL are they not first! Bands like Iron Maiden, Metallica, Anthrax all started to experiment. These guys have stayed the same since 1983. Brotherhood of the Snake is gonna be AWESOME
Even with multiple vocalists, they continue to release great albums - ryanrimmel
