Album Rank: Converge

Converge_Logo.jpg Over the years, Converge has established themselves as an influential and underrated band. Musically, they are powerful and enigmatic. Vocally and lyrically they are passionate and ferocious. The entire package of the band is approached with a “take no prisoners” type of attitude and it shows in every album they’ve released. Converge are also one of the few bands that seem to get better and better as time goes on just like a fine wine. Recently, Converge released two new songs to wet the appetite of their fans and those two songs are full of what you’d want from Converge. So, with all that in mind here is a ranking of their albums from not their best to the best.

Petitioning The Empty Sky:

 

When Forever Comes Crashing:

Album Rank: Neurosis

Neurosis is one of my all time favorite bands. They are legends and their influence stretches across many genres. They are also one of those bands that has always stuck to their guns and made the albums that they wanted to, without compromising their artistic integrity. Since their inception, Neurosis have released 11 full length studio albums, all of which deserve your attention. Here are their albums ranked from not the best to the best.

Enemy Of The Sun:

 

The Word As Law:

Album Rank: Gojira

Gojira are one of the most promising bands to come out since the turn of the century. Like Mastodon, Gojira keeps getting better and better. They are one of the few bands to continually evolve without losing sight of who they are. Which brings me to this album rank. As you’ll hear you can really tell how good Gojira has become as the albums go on.

6) The Link:

 

5) Terra Incognita:

 

4) The Way Of All Flesh:

 

3) Magma:

 

2) L’enfant Sauvage:

Album Rank: Megadeth

It’s been a while since I really sat down and listened to Megadeth. So the other day I put on their new album Dystopia and found I quite enjoyed it. To me it sounds like Dave was trying to recapture the feeling he and the band had during Rust In Peace. So much so, that Chris Adler’s drumming on the album has a Nick Menza feel to it. Anyways, I realized that Megadeth has 15, yes 15 albums, and I felt the need to rank them.

 

15) Super Collider:

 

14) The World Needs A Hero:

 

13) Thirteen:

 

12) United Abominations:

 

11) Endgame:

Album Rank: Black Sabbath (Ozzy Era)

The first six Black Sabbath albums are highly regarded in the rock and metal circles. I personally think the first four are the ones that should be the ones that are highly touted. The other two contain quite a lot of filler. That’s just my opinion though. So, with all this in mind here are the Ozzy era Black Sabbath albums ranked from not their best to the best.

9) Technical Ecstasy:

8) Never Say Die:

7) 13:

6) Sabotage:

5) Sabbath Bloody Sabbath:

4) Volume 4:

3) Master Of Reality:

2) Black Sabbath:

1) Paranoid:

Album Rank: Slayer

Today would have been Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman’s 53rd birthday. So I thought, a fun album rank of all of Slayer’s albums is very appropriate. Here we go from their worst to the best.

Repentless:

 

Christ Illusion:

 

World Painted Blood:

 

Undisputed Attitude:

 

God Hates Us All:

Album Rank: Metallica (Updated)

Since Metallica released Hardwired… To Self Destruct, I haven’t been able to take it out of rotation. In fact I don’t think I’ll be able to for quite some time. Because they have a new album out I thought, why not update the album rank of Metallica.

Keep in mind, this is just my personal order of how I see it.

What would be your order?

 
10) St. Anger:

 

09) Reload:

 
08) Death Magnetic:

 

07) Load:

 

06) Kill Em All:

 

05) Black Album:

 

04) Hardwired… To Self Destruct:

 

03) And Justice For All:

 

02) Master Of Puppets:

 

01) Ride The Lightning:
