20 great albums which turn 20 in 2018



Many things changed in the end of the 90s for the metal music. Electronic influences, mainly driven by the success of The Prodigy, collaboration between heavy metal artists and electronic music stars (Spawn OST or Matrix OST are the perfect examples), as well as predominant presence of Korn-style bands and the nu-metal rising just to enter into the new Millenium. Saying that, I witnessed that the decade 2000-2010 was the "weakest" in terms of great metal releases.  Many bands seemed to be discouraged by the nu-metal trends as well as the rising of metalcore. All this could be sensed somehow in the hybrid last years of the 90s. Still there were released some great records which stands in time 20 years later.
I'm going to outline 20 personally favourite records, which turn 20 in 2018. These twenty records were the most important and/or played by me through all the 1998. Some left absolute classics and all-time favourites in the years after up to the present. By looking at the list it is completely clear that I was also impacted by some interesting influences, leaving aside my real heavy roots. I hope I don't miss something here.
