Great thread Guller, starting in 2000, could have picked any track from this landmark album but went for Change (In the House of Flies) by Deftones...

Will try and post one or two from each year.

Probably metal adjacent rather than metal but features the dulcet tones of MJK. Orestes by A Perfect Circle...

Some really good heavy music over the last couple of decades. Here are a few of my personal favourites which in some cases push the definition of metal.

Part Chimp - Punishment Ride: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzLVj-SSwh0

Mastodon - Hunters of the Sky: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUku12XRcEI

Dethklok (I know but it is still good metal) - Thunderhorse: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QuphOxBX8YI

Zu - Ostia: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pERtUR ... 2A6F948756

Mogwai - We're No Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ny_yIrJcriA

That ISIS track was next up on my list but I decided I'd put too many in already.

One more for good measure:

Shellac - End of Radio. This was a Peel Session just after John Peel died and was a fitting eulogy.

I'm not fully up to speed with metal as an entirety but from the past 20 years I really like these albums

Metallica: St. Anger, Hardwired

Slipknot: Basically all their work, it's incredible

Slayer: Repentless

It’s the OPs thread but why limit it? Top metal is top metal.

Spit Out the Bone by Metallica is the best thrash song this century, IMO;

I am of an age where I go back to Sabbath/Motorhead/UFO etc and still enjoy all that stuff, however I also think that there is so much superb musicianship in a lot of the more recent bands that doesn't get talked about enough. You often hear people say comments like. "Rock is rubbish nowadays and there are no decent bands around!" It's just not - nowadays you can't just chuck out 3 chords banged up to eleven and it's a winner. The musicianship now is a whole new level. i.e as someone posted above a track from Alterbridge - Mark Tremonti is just one supremely gifted guitarist
He is just one of many.

So in a nutshell just wanted to recognise more modern artists of this genre.

Agree with all that. I'm into some of the more obscure and extreme stuff and the internet has made it much easier to find. Also made it much easier for people to create and distribute without label help.
