5 Metal Albums You MUST hear

Blood Mountain - Mastodon


A hell of a good album, by far my favorite from Mastodon. I bought this album over 2 years ago and I still play it weekly on my daily commute

Fav track - Sleeping giant

From Mars to Sirius - Gojira


One of the heaviest albums Ive ever heard. I love it, the rhythm is amazing. Its heavy but its also good, not like that shit from Bring Me The Horizon which is just heavy for the sake of being heavy. I say probs to this band, France finally has something they can be proud of. lmao

Fav track - Ohhh god, sooo hard to choose. Fuck it just listen to the whole album, its solid gold.

Cynic - Focus


ohhh yess, i know this is an old one, but its a good one. Defiantly played a big step in the popularization of Prog metal. It's well worth a listen, even if it does sound a little dated. It'll grow on you :]

fav Track - How Could I

In the absence of Truth - Isis


Now alot of people will probably disagree with me, putting this up over oceanic or panopticon. Idk really, this one just really grew on me. I love how isis' songs slowly build up to like some intense peak of awesomeness. It's a shame they broke up, which reminds me, my ex and i broke up the day they broke up. Talk about a double helping of shittiness.

Fav track - its a toss up between "Dulcinea" and "garden of light"

Deliverance - Opeth


Arguably Opeth's best album, and it's also their heaviest. Its was released along with Damnation as a double album. Damnation being their softest. Id say it's well worth a listen

Fav track - Master's Apprentices
