Best 90s Metal Albums

JOURNEYMAN

The Top Ten

1 Rust In Peace - Megadeth

Great album. - Metarock

Rust in Peace is the best 90's metal album and they've got songs such as Holy Wars... the Punishment Due and Hangar 18 to prove it.

2 Vulgar Display of Power - Pantera

This is a great album, it's much more consistent than Cowboys from Hell in my opinion. - Metarock

Should be number 1 it's better than Rust in Peace - christangrant

3 Painkiller - Judas Priest

The title track is one of the greatest metal songs of all time. - Metarock

4 Metallica - Metallica

Enter sandman, The Unforgiven and Nothing else matters kills any song on rust in peace

5 Seasons In the Abyss - Slayer
6 Fear of the Dark - Iron Maiden

Um this shouldn't be at this spot on the list - christangrant

I guess christangrant wanted to say this album shouldn't be so high on this list and I agree with him. The title track is awesome but the rest of the album isn't the best by this band, a great band though. - Metal_Treasure

7 Cowboys from Hell - Pantera
8 Images & Words - Dream Theater
9 ├ćnima - Tool
10 The Sound of Perseverance - Death

It's so hard to choose between this and Symbolic. both are great
