The Top 20 best metal albums of 1990

Metal Hammer

New decade, new start. At least that’s the way the cliché goes. And, as the 1980s turned into the 1990s, metal was certainly ready for a change. Hair metal had dominated the past few years, but it was starting to look as bedraggled as a  Pomeranian in a hurricane. Even thrash metal was beginning to run out of juice, though Big Four charter members Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax still managed to serve up classic albums in Seasons In The Abyss, Rust In Peace and Persistence Of Time respectively.

But mostly, 1990 was where metal’s mutant strains began to take over the host body. Extreme noise terrorists Entombed, Deicide and Obituary dragged death metal out of the sewers, Napalm Death slowed down their million mph grindcore without losing any of their intensity, and black metal pioneers-turned-viking warriors Bathory continued their journey to the halls of Valhalla.
