So since there are a infinate number of "metalband with best..., favourite this, that and so on... I thought I would make something like this.
Which metalband has in your oppinion the best production. I myself like the production on Carcass Heartwork album.

Later Blind Guardian is the first that comes to mind - Blind Guardian is always the first to come to mind though... I probably listen to better produced stuff but can't think of it. Sonata Arctica maybe, Symphony X and Dream Theater... etc?

Nightingale - White Darkness has perfect production
I’m not the man I used to be, I... I can’t go back to Arkham.

I... I should return to Arkham.


Among the churchyard’s mouldering stones I recognise a name – my own.
I have come home to Arkham.

Ahh sorry, some people aren't familiar with my speak... I mean as in that it sounds crunchy but not too distorted that it doesn't sound like tits.
NOPE.

Alright, I'll give them a try, Japanese Black Speed rarely disappoints.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

Yes.

Also pretty much any Dev solo album. Alien and The New Black have pristine production too.

darkthrone


darkthrone, in my opinion have appauling production, (soz if you were being sarcastic) sounds really muffled and bad
#14
I think that old metal, Master Of Puppets, where as new Metal I think that Triviums Crusade was produced quite well.
#17
Most of the stuff Andy Sneap works on is pretty good. And Tool: Tool has amazing production
#19
Gojira, Decapitated, Wintersun and Necrophagist, all amazing production, Insomnium and Dimmu also have amazing production.

I guess production is relevant to the genre, overall though my two favorite albums that have the best production in terms of sound quality would be hypocrisy penetralia and morbidangel's covenant. Those albums have a great recording style with out being overproduced like so much of todays metal. Morta skuld and carcass's later releases are definitely up there too.
