Most Underrated Metal Albums of the 90s


The Top Ten

1 Burnt Offerings - Iced Earth

Such a good album... Even if "Dante's Inferno" was the only good song (which it isn't by any means) this album still would be underrated.

2 Nightfall in Middle-Earth - Blind Guardian
3 The Great Southern Trendkill - Pantera

This album is better than Far Beyond Driven yet not as many people like this album even though it includes the song Floods which has the greatest guitar solo ever - christangrant

4 Sound of White Noise - Anthrax
5 Divine Intervention - Slayer
6 Jugulator - Judas Priest

@ Visitor wow so apprently having a opinion means I'm retarded but anyway you obviously know nothing about Tim Ripper Owens if he's a terrible person then how come he sang a song called "When the Eagle Cries" which is a tribute to those who died in 9/11 and while I will agree Halford is better than Owens, that doesn't mean Owens is a bad singer he used to be in a Judas Priest Cover band and his nickname is a Judas Priest song. - christangrant

Such a great album only hated because Rob Halford is not on vocals even though Tim Ripper Owens is almost just as good as he is - christangrant

7 Mental Vortex - Coroner
8 Handful of Rain - Savatage
9 Vain Glory Opera - Edguy
10 Persistence of Time - Anthrax

The Contenders

11 Never, Neverland - Annihilator
12 Load - Metallica
13 None So Vile - Cryptopsy
14 Reload - Metallica
15 The X Factor - Iron Maiden
16 Volume 8 - The Threat is Real - Anthrax
17 Somewhere Far Beyond - Blind Guardian

One of the best and more challenging Blind Guardian albums (1992). Sadly, most people know only The Bard's Song from this album - a great acoustic ballad but it's not a metal song in the strict sense. - Metal_Treasure

18 Obscura - Gorguts
19 Fear of the Dark - Iron Maiden V 1 Comment
20 Slaughter In the Vatican - Exhorder
