    Quite a good album, maybe a bit overrated for a list like this, but a great album indeed.

    #1 Altars of Madness ?

  • Ricky Marske

    I would call Scream Bloody Gore, Blizzard of Oz, or Iron Maiden the best. Though if we could include punk, I would also consider Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables.

    • Andrew Engelhardt

      If punk was included, I would include Group Sex, Everything went Black, and Bad Brain's ROIR cassette.

      • Zac Melvin-McNutt

        Everything Went Black was not Black Flag's debut

  • Alexander Eggers

    Yeah, no. I love The Black Dahlia Murder but Miasma and ESPECIALLY Unhollowed are okay albums at best, these guys didn't become the amazing band they are until Nocturnal where every song on that album is amazing.

    • Clinton

      I agree 100%. They keep getting better with age.

      • Sir Peras

        Ritual though, marks the beginning of flawless albums so far, oh, and they deliver live.

    • disqus_QmtnwHPZjM

      Miasma was a fucking amazing album! Miasma and Nocturnal are easily my favoirite albums by them.

  • Trve Kvlt Neil


  • Dead1

    Meh album from a largely meh band.

  • SudenTunti

    Really? Their debut is a mediocre At The Gates worship album at best.

  • cleverusername

    Top 10 debut of that year maybe.

  • dimished7th

    I bought this album before Miasma came out. Unhallowed was kinda my gateway into heavier things. The countdown is also about debut albums, not anything else they've done.

  • Andrew Kirchner

    It would be safe to say that the first track "Unhallowed" has one of the most brutal riffs ever. You cant listen to that and not headbang until your head wants to fall directly off…

  • Ray Aldrete

    Their decent and the development of the band in my opinion begins with unhallowed..

  • Big Norris

    Fuck that do Soul Of A New Machine
