Thanks to all who participated, will be rolling out a top 300! finishing next Friday. Henry will be joining in when he can! Hope by posting a top 300 we will represent everyone's tastes.
basically spin ran a top 500, ILM can make a better list. 726 albums got a vote. the full list will be posted at the very end along with needle being opened up where you can see shitloads of stats.

Some posters want the suspense of guessing what missed the top 100, so we have a system in place, all will be revealed.

and starting things off, are...

Good start!

See, I can be positive on occasion.

EZ Snappin, Friday, 6 August 2010 00:33 (eight years ago) link

It's not gonna last to the other part of the tie, lolol. :)

pfunkboy (Herman G. Neuname), Friday, 6 August 2010 00:34 (eight years ago) link

Then I'm glad you paused a moment before the second one.

pfunkboy (Herman G. Neuname), Friday, 6 August 2010 00:37 (eight years ago) link

that's indie-rock iirc

let it sb (acoleuthic), Friday, 6 August 2010 00:38 (eight years ago) link

LJ, something with 2 #1 votes still wouldn't make the top 300.

pfunkboy (Herman G. Neuname), Friday, 6 August 2010 00:38 (eight years ago) link

Hey, I have no problem with Lightning Bolt. I think of them as heavy noise, but that definitely fits the parameters of what you set up. That's the album with "Two Towers," right? That song grooves in a mighty heavy way.

EZ Snappin, Friday, 6 August 2010 00:41 (eight years ago) link

It's a varied list, it's very ILM. I think it's a great list personally. The amount of votes was insane. Over 80 voters.

pfunkboy (Herman G. Neuname), Friday, 6 August 2010 00:45 (eight years ago) link

I love that Lightening Bolt album and it is hard as fuck.

will provide spotify links if there are any

pfunkboy (Herman G. Neuname), Friday, 6 August 2010 01:01 (eight years ago) link

I forgot to post my thoughts on that in my "free album" poll - it's quite good! Not sure I would have paid full price for it, but I'm not selling it either. I need to wait for cooler weather to reevaluate - not really a summer album.

EZ Snappin, Friday, 6 August 2010 01:02 (eight years ago) link

i was wondering if you had ever got round to playing it.
btw have we lost johnny fever? I thought he would have approved of the #1 track.

pfunkboy (Herman G. Neuname), Friday, 6 August 2010 01:03 (eight years ago) link

it is illegal to disapprove of that track tbh - it is mighty in every way

let it sb (acoleuthic), Friday, 6 August 2010 01:04 (eight years ago) link

You guys just live in an entirely different world from me.

Johnelle Fevráe (Johnny Fever), Friday, 6 August 2010 01:05 (eight years ago) link

we didn't give up on metal 20 years ago though! You should try listening to stuff since then, you might find stuff you like.

pfunkboy (Herman G. Neuname), Friday, 6 August 2010 01:09 (eight years ago) link

I just found a band I like last year, Mantic Ritual. But that's only because they sound like Exodus in 1986.

this album rules too though

I got my black gloves on (Viceroy), Friday, 6 August 2010 01:22 (eight years ago) link

I'm not summarizing these in list form btw. Not mad, honest. I just don't want to be chained to keeping up with this thread all the way through.

Johnelle Fevráe (Johnny Fever), Friday, 6 August 2010 01:23 (eight years ago) link

that album-cover is pretty fucking funny (well, as pretty fucking funny as 'kinda rapey' gets)

so that means a few more albums certainly!

I got my black gloves on (Viceroy), Friday, 6 August 2010 01:35 (eight years ago) link

Just because I'm sure you'd want to know, so far it's one album I like, one I kind of like, one I've never heard and one I absolutely do not like at all. You can guess which is which.

Johnny, you wouldn't like Monarch. Or, if you did, I'd be really surprised. So chalk that up as two in the last column.

EZ Snappin, Friday, 6 August 2010 01:41 (eight years ago) link

I'm liking this album. But I love this kind of cheese.

I got my black gloves on (Viceroy), Friday, 6 August 2010 01:42 (eight years ago) link

I've never heard of Turisas, but a quick jaunt over to youtube has me saying HELL YEAH! Cheesy and gloriously so. Well done whomever voted for it.

Uh yeah, this is the kind of stuff dudes who work at Game Stop listen to in the back room while sorting out plans for WoW domination.

and its the first album to place that was on my ballot!

I just got into this album recently and holy fuck, besides the LOL-name, it's really an awesome album. hollowed-out guitars, sick vocals, and occasionally hilarious abrupt deviations into other genres like funk (but mostly just pure unbridled raw death metal).

wow, totally missed this thread the first time around, including the fingerpointing at the end. Wish I'd voted in this - mostly keep finding this thread whilst searching for opinions on various 2nd tier albums I haven't heard. I wish there was a version of this thread w/ Bill and Fever's posts scrubbed tho.

fairly sure i'd have had a death metal heavy ballot, but with lots of stoner acts too and of course stuff like Zep, even ZZ Top, a few Aerosmith.

but yeah my top ten would have been shit like Autopsy

Just read back from the top 20. Oof. JF, I love you man, but that was definitely a brief moment of crazy.

Still don't think I'd have enough albums to vote for in a retread of this poll, but the corresponding tracks poll was one of my favourites.

Just read back from the top 20. Oof. JF, I love you man, but that was definitely a brief moment of crazy.

Still don't think I'd have enough albums to vote for in a retread of this poll, but the corresponding tracks poll was one of my favourites.

― emil.y, Monday, May 26, 2014 8:08 PM (Yesterday

I just want to make this clear I WILL NEVER EVER BE UNDERTAKING A BEST HEAVY ROCK/METAL ALBUM EVER - EVER AGAIN.

172 (yes I counted). own all of those too (or did at one point)

۩, Wednesday, 28 May 2014 01:08 (five years ago) link

good results. weird results. hard to believe that more people genuinely like some unlistenable fucking khanate record more than ace of spades or jailbreak, but poll results are always mystifying, ime. were jesus lizard excluded on princple?

riot grillz (contenderizer), Wednesday, 28 May 2014 12:08 (five years ago) link

I was kind of expecting Cynic (Focus at least) and Ved Buens Ende to show up. Most of these bands just aren't really my thing but the only selections I actually balked at were MSP. I did, however, spend last night re-acquainting myself with the first three Ulverses because of this.

oh and xxxpost by 'parochial metalhead' I mean anyone who has an absurdly narrow view of what good and/or true metal is. That for me includes anyone who dismisses anything outside their personal preferences, or anything past 1989, or even purist black metal dullards etc.

ultros ultros-ghali, Wednesday, 28 May 2014 12:57 (five years ago) link

i dismiss khanate, but am right to do so

silly contenderizer

۩, Wednesday, 28 May 2014 15:47 (five years ago) link

Also I doubt jesus lizard think of themselves as heavy rock or metal.

۩, Wednesday, 28 May 2014 15:49 (five years ago) link

just re-reading bits of the thread and I'm surprised so many ilxors were stuck in the 70s or 80s

۩, Wednesday, 28 May 2014 20:34 (five years ago) link

if jesus lizard can listen to "the art of self defense" and not think of themselves as heavy rock, then, well ... they can't, so it doesn't matter

nice to see that bullhead did so well for itself

I can't believe I never listened to Sarcofago's "Laws of Scourge" before today. three songs in and I'm going gaga over the riff salad.

always liked I.N.R.I. a lot but man this is top quality stuff.
