The list author says: "very tough list to come up with but here are my personal favorite metal albums of the past decade in order. lots of good metal albums produced this decade some had to be left off these albums in my opinion are flawless. here is my list of the best the decade had to offer in metal, whether its grindcore, thrash,hardcore,death,black, sludge, post , groove, or any other genre i forgot to mention. i could only do 40 i wanted to do fifty this made it that much harder lots got left off. dont be offended and leave a comment if you like."
"dont know if anyone else agrees but this is my number one. this album just destroys from start to finish, scott hull is absolutly one the best guitar players in metal. no bass just tons of blast beats death growls and loads of screaming with tormented lyrics."
"the peak of the black metal scene was in the 90's with the norweigian second wave scene. that being said this album does not sound like the second wave. this album is more of a grind/death layered in hulicinegenic rythms. super group from new orleans comes in with 2nd best album of decade."
"lamb of god really carried the flag for heavy metal popularity during the decade. with there rise in fame they lost respect from some in the metal scene but not me. this album is classic totaly unique sound. this album just kills thats why it comes in at number 3."
"doesnt sound like it was made in the new millenium thats why it is so great. phil anselmo wrote these songs in the early 90's. new orleans super group with jimmie bower kevin bond joe fazzio and hank iii. this album has so much style to it was hard to put anything in front of this. number 4"
"wow what a great album. this is a little different then the previous. supeior musicains some of the best death metal moments are found on this record along with grind moments. some might not like this album but if you have musical taste you will. number 5"
"another scott hull album in the top 10. this album is blistering grindcore with scott hull on guitar and drum programing. this album is so choatic but orchestrated so well. the drum programing adds a unique quality to the record that i cant get enough of. number 6"
"came out same time as use once and destroy. another phil anselmo super group creating yet another masterpiece in southern metal. kurt weinstein and pepper keenen lay down some great riffs while jimmy bower displays his best drum performance. 9"
"just misses the top ten. morbid angel along with death metal had already seen its best days but this album just proves why they are the best ever in death metal. no david vincent but steve tucker has his best moment yet."
"might be biased because im from cleveland but this is the only chimaira album i care for. that being said this album rules and came out when metal was sort of making a popular comeback with bands like log and kse. this album displays some seriouse groove oriented riffs with some superior musicianship."
"noise king and famed producer steve austin creates this noise grind masterpiece. double disc album features noise vocal track with seth putnam and guitar apperence from mark morton. steve austin delivers another mind blowing album."
"death metals glory days where the late eightys early nineties but nile just kills. with over all brutallity and musicianship nobody compares. does not sound "old school death metal" but something almost scholarly."
"seeing the departure of the hoffman brothers and jack owen taking over guitar duty i had questions about this release until i heard it. steve asheim has duty as producer and drummer. instant classic for death metal."
"i was more a fan of the 90's stephen o malley and gregg anderson stuff but this album is just great. getting there name from their fav band earth sunn 0))), and forming to pay homage to earth. sunn0))) create some scary deep guitar sounds. buy thorrs hammer and burning witch too!"
