Definitive metal albums

I have, albeit only once or twice a little while ago. Seemed quite strong - a slightly streamlined yet still effective continuation of Adramelech's distinctive Demigod-derived sound. Recommended, though not particularly awe-inspiring.

If interested in more solid new albums, don't miss Mortem's "De Natura Daemonum," which is easily their best since the debut, although I'd go so far as to say that it might just be their strongest release.

I already have it, it seems like good stuff but I'll need more listens.

Not really. You're looking for the best of the genre that is also archetypal:


"1 : the original pattern or model of which all things of the same type are representations or copies : PROTOTYPE; also : a perfect example
2 : IDEA 1a
3 : an inherited idea or mode of thought in the psychology of C. G. Jung that is derived from the experience of the race and is present in the unconscious of the individual"
