Best Debut Albums From Heavy Metal Bands


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Metal Church - Metal Church

Are you people serious half the Albums on this list isn't even metal. I'm going with Metal Church if you haven't herd the first album then stop reading. From beyond the black To battalions this album kicks ass.

22 Soul of a New Machine - Fear Factory
23 The Sickness - Disturbed

Down with the Sickness, Stupify, The Game, Voices, Fear... This entire album brought an impactful arsenal of songs. They were distinctively their own sound at the time and it was huge!

24 Fast Loud Death - Lost Society

It was one of the best albums of 2013. These guys were teens in 2013, aged 17-19 but blew everybody's mind.

Kill (Those Who Oppose Me) is a crazy fast thrash song, one of the fastest ever. The video to this track is one of the coolest I've ever seen. - Metal_Treasure

25 Too Fast for Love - Motley Crue

Too fast for love has a great punk type of feel to it, it's so great

26 Infernal Overkill - Destruction
27 Heavy as a Really Heavy Thing - Strapping Young Lad
28 Glory to the Brave - HammerFall
29 Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow - Rainbow
30 Sounding the Seventh Trumpet - Avenged Sevenfold

Perfect the guitars had no solos and still managed to be insanely awesome what more could you want? The drums are just crazy and Matt's screams are among his best

Very underrated album and Linkin Park is not heavy metal

Most people voting for this album have probably never even listened to it. They're just voting cause its Avenged Sevenfold.

This is metalcore you posers

31 Battalions of Fear - Blind Guardian

Majesty is one of the best and most epic speed metal songs in the business. Guardian Of The Blind is one of the fastest songs, too.

32 Walls of Jericho - Helloween
33 Welcome to Hell - Venom
34 Facelift - Alice In Chains
35 Rage Against the Machine - Rage Against the Machine V 1 Comment
36 Lightning to the Nations (The White Album) - Diamond Head
37 Purification - Anubis Gate
38 Gates to Purgatory - Running Wild
39 Rush - Rush

It has some good hard rock and some sweet metal playing. It has some good guitar and real metal and hard rock.

If Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath made a album together, this would be it.

40 Kiss - Kiss
