Tales From The Jugular - Top 25 Worst Metal Album Names

Rod T. comin' at ya live! I'm making a very special guest appearance over here on the Tales side to bring you another heapin' helpin' of listmania! This time it's the Top 25 worst damn album titles. We've all seen it before. You are browsing the local metal section of your store and you spot that album. You say to yourself, why in the Hell did they name a record that. I've been there before, many many times, prompting me to make a list of the worst album titles I've seen in the metal industry thus far. Many of you have read EC's "Listmania" before, ranging from "Top Christian Metal Albums" to "Vinyl That Needs Released On Disc". I thought it would be a great addition to Maximum Metal to add my own list of titles, those crazy metal releases that just leave you asking WHY baby WHY?

Let me speak on this......roll it!


25. DEZIRE - A Rock Band Named Dezire (There has to be something you can come up with...Dezire....I Dezire....Dezire Me)

21. NOISEHUNTER - Spell Of Noise

20. VICTORY - You Bought It, You Name It
