Oh look! Another list for us to argue about! Actually, this list is pretty solid, but with a title like “10 Metal Albums to Listen to Before You Die,” I think some essentials are missing. Alex Distefano from OCWeekly.com took on this list, and while some choices are right on and killer records, some classic are definitely missing! As he says, “After hours upon hours of listening, serious contemplation and flipping of a coin, I managed to come up with a list that, although definitely biased towards a more aggressive and extreme forms of heavy metal, still highlights some amazing albums that contain solid musicianship and above all great songs.

Here’s his list:

10. Mercyful Fate, Melissa (1983)
9. Possessed, Seven Churches (1985)
8. Angel Witch, Angel Witch (1980)
7. Cannibal Corpse, The Bleeding (1994)
6. Type O Negative, Dead Again (2007)
5. Repulsion, Horrified (1989)
4. Motorhead, Motorizer (2008)
3. Cryptopsy, None So Vile (1996)
2. Dissection, Storm of the Lights Bane (2002)
1. Slayer, Reign in Blood (1986)

My only questions are where is Metallica, Morbid Angel, Megadeth, Death, Pantera, Black Sabbath, Carcass, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and more!?! Oh well. A for effort!
