What are some essential Metal Albums of each subgenre? Don't worry about saying ones I already have (I have alot), I just want to see what some essential Albums are, so if I don't already have them, I can pick them up.

Try to say why they are essential, remember no genres are excluded; I will listen to anything from 80's Glam to Brutal Death Metal!

Thanks.

There, on that fateful first page, you will find a wonderous and mythical catalogue of specifically, "Essential Albums" from every genre in existence.

May your journey there be a joyous one.

how are we supposed to know what you already have???

testament - the gathering
necrophagist - epitaph, onset of putrefaction
nevermore - this godless endeavor, dead heart in a dead world, the politics of ecstasy
pantera - far beyond driven, cowboys from hell, vulgar display of power
beneath the massacre - mechanics of dysfunction
nile - annihilation of the wicked, black seeds of vengeance, ithyphallic
lamb of god - ashes of the wake, sacrament, new american gospel
opeth - blackwater park, ghost reveries
spawn of possession - noctambulant
whitechapel - the somatic defilement
decapitated - nihility
cryptopsy - whisper supremacy
between the buried and me - alaska, colors
behemoth - demigod
aeon - rise to dominate
brain drill - apocalyptic feasting
carcass - reek of putrefaction, swansong
bloodbath - nightmares made flesh

that should get you started
