Best European Metal Albums of All Time


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Iron Maiden - Brave New World

The Album where Bruce Dickenson came back. This gave the band that euphoric feeling that inspires the greatest music. And the songs "Out of the Silent" "Blood Brothers" and "Thin Line Between Love and Hate" were some of the catchiest songs they've ever made! And of course their lyrics had deep spiritual meaning that gave goose bumps and pricked you to the bone.

42 Bullet For My Valentine - Fever
43 Rammstein - Mutter
44 In Flames - Whoracle

A standout among standouts. One of many brilliant releases by In Flames. Not just good musicianship but very original writing and composition

45 Sodom - Agent Orange
46 Celtic Frost - To Mega Therion
47 Stratovarius - Fourth Dimension
48 Kreator - Extreme Aggression
49 Def Leppard - Hysteria V 1 Comment
50 Mercyful Fate - Don't Break the Oath
51 Craft - Total Soul Rape

Good song structure, excellent percussion, guitar rides from Hell, bone-chilling vocals, and just a tad of Satan thrown in...makes this some good/ metal Craft; as good as Sargeist...and maybe just a bit more....diverse.

Out of this list, this one wins. Very underrated. One of the best black metal bands for sure.

52 Helloween - Walls of Jericho
53 Iron Fire - To the Grave
54 Emperor - Prometheus

Black Metal's greatest accomplishment. Old school Black Metal mixed with mind-bending musical composition. Norwegian Black Metal at it's finest.

55 Celtic Frost - Morbid Tales
56 Dimmu Borgir - Abrahadabra
57 Ozzy Osbourne - Diary of a Madman
58 Bathory - Hammerheart
59 Epica - The Divine Conspiracy
60 Meshuggah - Catch 33

It may not be instantly accessible to the average music lover, but for the thinking man, the elitists, or just plain pretentious people, this is an excellent album.
