The 25 Best Heavy Metal Albums of the 2000's


The 25 best heavy metal albums from the 2000's are shown below. The list represents the combined opinion of numerous heavy metal fans: the points used to develop the rankings are derived from more than 70 heavy metal lists shown here.

Links are provided to the review pages for albums reviewed on The Ace Black Blog. The reviews are the independent opinion of the Blog and do not always agree with combined popular opinion of metal fans. The Ace Black Blog's ranked list of all-time best metal album is here.

When the points for two or more albums are equal, the tie breakers in order are (1) the number of lists that the album appeared on (higher is better); (2) highest position achieved on any list; and (3) earliest release date.

The list of 50 All-Time Best Heavy Metal Albums compiles the results from all decades.

Separate Top-25 lists are also provided by decade, for the Seventies, Eighties, and Nineties.
