21 Best Metal Albums of the 21st Century... So Far




The list was never meant to be definitive – there would be no way to compile a so-called “definitive” list of the “best” metal albums anyways. We were just hoping to have some fun, and we’ve certainly had fun. And hopefully at least some of you have had fun, too.

But no matter which 21 albums our panel ended up selecting, there were always going to be hundreds – literally hundreds – of worthy records that just weren’t going to get the love they deserve.

To that end, throughout the remainder of the week, each MetalSucks staffer will be writing about one album that he wishes had made the list.

In the meantime, after the jump, you can check out all the albums our panelists voted for that didn’t make the list; in other words, these albums would be on a list of the  543 Best Metal Albums of the 21st Century… So Far.

We hope that it continues to provide fodder for your arguments.
