Marilyn Manson Portrait of an American Family.jpg
12. Marilyn Manson Portrait Of An American Family (1994) Marilyn Manson has spent years trying to convince us he's the anti-Christ, but we have never been as creeped out by him as in the early days. The living room here sets the mood for the twisted tales ahead.

Exodus - Bonded by Blood.jpg
11. Exodus Bonded By Blood (1985) One of the landmark albums in thrash metal, Bonded By Blood has an appropriately horrifying cover. The legend of the evil twin is a staple in storytelling, but it's more amplified when the evil twin is conjoined to the good twin, and the only escape is a risky separation that could kill both of them.

Ozzy Osbourne - Bark at the Moon.jpg
10. Ozzy Osbourne Bark At The Moon (1983) Contrary to popular belief, you do not turn into a vampire if you bite the head off a bat. Thankfully for Ozzy Osbourne, he survived his brief werewolf spell to become one of America's most treasured reality-television icons. We liked him better as a werewolf.

9. Dimmu Borgir In Sorte Diaboli (2007) You may think you've made a wrong turn when you walk into a room and you find a bunch of people worshipping at the altar of a Satanic goat demoness. But for these Norwegian metal lords, it's just business as usual.
