    Which metal albums do you think really stand out from the bunch when it comes to guitar sound?

    I would say:

    Metallica - Garage Inc.
    Annihilator - First three albums
    Decapitated - Nihility
    Sinner - The Nature Of Evil

    I don't know. I don't know shit about guitar sounds or tones. My spectre of categorizing guitar sounds is limited to "shit", "ok", and "good".

    shit sounding guitar example: Dream Theater - Systematic Chaos

    ok sounding guitar example: Symphony X - Divine Wings, Twilight in Olympus, The Odyssey

    good sounding guitar example: The newer Opeth albums or Emperor - In the Nightside Eclipse

    Have a guess about which one I wasn't completely serious about.

    Meshuggah - catch 33 and forward
    Anata - The conductors departure
    Wintersun - Wintersun
    Gojira - all albums
    Volbeat - all albums
    Satyricon - most albums
    Sepultura - most albums
    Arch Enemy - quality varies but has always had high quality in terms of sound.



    loads more.

    It depends on what kind of metal it is.

    The guitar sound on Uprising by Entombed slays.
    Exodus has crushing sounds on their latest record.

    Nevermore - This Godless Endeavor. Man, the guitars on that one are crushing.
    Gojira also has good guitar sound.
    Opeth, especially on Ghost Reveries and Blackwater Park.
    I also love the guitars on The Novella Reservoir by Novembers Doom.
    Master of Puppets. Rust in Peace.

    Hate on them all you want, but Dream Theater's "Awake" has some of the best sounding guitar tones ever.

    I really like the tone on Darkthrone's 'A Blaze in the Northern Sky' - it makes it sound more evil.

    Also, I think that Michael Amott plays with a beautiful tone.

    And At the Gates' 'Slaughter of the Soul' has also got a pretty awesome guitar tone.

    Awake is my favorite DT record, too. God, do they ever miss Kevin Moore.

    Without a shadow of a doubt. Best metal rhythm guitar sound I've ever heard.
