This is a topic that has probably been posted before, anyway here are my favorites/what im listening to at the moment.
Theres many more (Testament,exodus,slayer) anyway please add.
-Anthrax: Among the Living (Killer cover art as well)
-Pantera: Cowboys from Hell
-Machine Head: Burning Red (I think?)
-Testament: Whatever the album that came out in 92 with I think the song was called "Seasons slowly grey" on it.
-gotta second the vote for Demanufacture
Motorhead - Inferno Mudvayne - Lost and FoundKillswitch Engage - End of Heartache
I know I'm not what would be considered a really hardcore metalhead, but I must say that my old fallback for working out when I haven't listened to it in a long time is Metallica's black album. The whole fucking thing just POUNDS, all the way through.
Thats it for now
For me, and this is judged on the criteria of stuff that gets me amped in the gym:
Metallica - Kill 'Em AllSlayer - Diabolus in Musica, among othersRaise Hell - Wicked is My GameBlack Label Society - Sonic Brew, Stronger Than Death, and 1919 EternalAC/DC - Back in BlackPantera - Vulgar Display of Power
and, underappreciated classic and top of my list:
Down - Nola
Metallica - Master of Puppets, Kill 'em All
Megadeth - Peace Sells...But Who's Buying?
Pantera - Vulgar Diplay of Power
Soundgarden - Louder Than Love
Metallica - Ride the Lightning & PuppetsPantera - Vulgar Display of PowerKillswitch Engage - End of HeartacheTrivium - Acendancy
All albums by:
Old Metallica, Kill'em All to Master
Early Anthrax up to White Noise
FUCKING METAL MAN
Today, my favorite metal albums are:1. At the Gates-Terminal Spirit Disease2. Emperor-Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk3. Black Sabbath-Black Sabbath4. Black Sabbath-Vol. 45. Sleep-Dopesmoker6.

Death to false metal.
Deinabolic: The Testament album is "The Ritual"
BTW: Nightrage Kicks ass, Elusive Emotion is one of my favorite songs.
Tool: any of them, but especially Lateralus and AenimaDef Tones: the latest two
Maybe those aren't "true metal", but they're what I like.
Bathory: Thats a name I havent heard in a long long time............
Mudvayne: L.T.D. 50Meshuggah: NothingPre-Black album Metallica, any albumPantera: The Great Southern TrendkillSystem of a Down: Toxicity, MesmerizeRob Halford: Live InsurrectionKorn: Follow the Leader, Issues, Take a Look in the Mirror (or whatever it's called)Limp Bizkit: Three Dollar Bill Y'All (except for "Faith," this album was badass and still sounds great. Haven't liked/detested everything else they did)
The Ritual...hell yeah, thanks for reminding me. I've gotta go get another copy of it.
One more - anything by Type O...
This list could go on and on. Anybody into Dream Theater and Iced Earth???
I bought an album by Dream Theater once. I forget the title, but it had something to do with seasons. Change of Seasons? Something like that. I didn't care for it much, but I know they're supposed to be very progressive. I just found it lacking in drive and intensity. I try to be open-minded, but it just didn't do it for me. Any suggestions on a good album of theirs to pick up?
Im a huge TOOL fan bro. Theyre working on the new one as Im sure you know and theyve been inspired by Meshuggah; so god only knows what could come of that!!!
I'll just list some of my favorite bands. Slayer, Cryptopsy, Burzum, Darkthrone, Electric Wizard, Sleep, Candlemass, Nightwish, Acid King, Mercyful Fate, Abyssic Hate, Blut Aus Nord, Hellkrusher, Autospy, Brodequin, Immolation, Drudkh etc.
