Guest Post: Mike Thorn- 100 Favorite Heavy Metal Albums


“Exhume to Consume” was my working title for the second story in my new duology, Dreams of Lake Drukka & Exhumation; unfortunately, the title already belongs to a song from Carcass’s Symphonies of Sickness (which is included on this list).

I’ve listed and (very, very roughly) ranked my 100 favorite metal albums below.
