Most Overrated Thrash, Black and Death Metal Albums

The Top Ten

1 Master of Puppets - Metallica

I literally only liked two of the songs on Master of Puppets, while I loved every song on Kill 'em All and Ride the Lightning.

Nah, this album deserves it praise, though I personally don't think the song itself is a good as it's said to be. - LarrytheFairy

I believe that this album is the peak of Metal. - Rambles

2 Metallica - Metallica

Sometimes found as a disappointment, it did not compare to their other albums but is a great starter for metal listeners - jack2244

3 Countdown To Extinction - Megadeth

Rust in Peace and Peace Sells… But Who's Buying? are better - jack2244

4 Tomb of the Mutilated - Cannibal Corpse

This is a great album and a classic. - Rambles

Where do I begin with this album? - jack2244

5 South of Heaven - Slayer

Good album but not as good as Seasons in the Abyss and Reign in Blood - jack2244

This one is more underrated than overrated. - Rambles

6 Dawn of the Black Hearts - Mayhem

I think this album is great and one of the best live albums ever. - Rambles

Not for the artwork but the album itself - jack2244

7 Persistence of Time - Anthrax

Good album but not as good as Sound of White Noise, Among the Living or Spreading the Disease - jack2244

8 God Hates Us All - Slayer

Good album but not as good as their early works - jack2244

9 Meliora - Ghost

Fantastic album, I agree but highly overrated and I only ranked this here because some seem to deem this black metal - jack2244

I hate this album but it should not be on this list because it is not Thrash, Death, or Black. - Rambles

10 De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas - Mayhem

The Contenders

11 Scream Bloody Gore - Death

Great album but not as good as Symbolic, Human or The Sound of Perseverance - jack2244

12 Rust in Peace - Megadeth
13 Reign in Blood - Slayer
