Best Fifth Albums From Heavy Metal Bands

Ironman02

The Top Ten

1 Powerslave - Iron Maiden

Classic. Several masterpieces on this album, none better than the epic Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Seasons of the Abyss a close second and then Countdown to Extinction.

This is the best fifth album from a metal band easily. - Rambles

Rime Of The Ancient Marriner... Enough said

2 Metallica - Metallica

The point when the hair came off and the heaviness that they were known for was gone until st anger came out like ten years later.

This album was a turning point for Metallica. What an album!

Definitely best!

3 Countdown to Extinction - Megadeth

Skin o my teeth, symphony of destruction, forclosure of a dream are some of the best songs to meet the light of day, while Metallica sold out to rock for the money, Megadeth created their second best album, (1st rust in peace of course) long live megadeth

4 Seasons In the Abyss - Slayer
5 Metropolis Part 2: Scenes from a Memory - Dream Theater

One of the best albums of all-time

A masterpiece! Beyond words as well.

6 Blackwater Park - Opeth
7 Cowboys from Hell - Pantera

Yes, that is Pantera fifth album. After four glam-metal releases, finally they gave us that masterpiece. Way better than "Black Album" and "Countdown to Extinction", in my opinion even better than "Powerslave". Deserves top 1.

This is a great album! The begining of pantera's metal side.

No, this is a debut.

1. Cowboys from Hell - Pantera
2. Powerslave - Iron Maiden
3. Metropolis Part 2: Scenes from a Memory - Dream Theater
4. Metallica - Metallica
5. Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold
6. Countdown to Extinction - Megadeth
7. Seasons in the Abyss - Slayer
8. Killing Machine - Judas Priest
9. Asylum - Disturbed
10. Persistence of Time - Anthrax

8 Sabbath Bloody Sabbath - Black Sabbath
9 Keep the Faith - Bon Jovi
10 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold

What! I can't go with this list... Nightmare is one of the notable album of heavy metal history. Every songs of this album is great and unique. Every one should listen up this band and this album.

Its 11th because its not heavy metal, its hard rock. But still the 2nd best album of 2000s behind waking the fallen.
And in which universe does liveng things has meaningful lyrics? How is LP heavy metal?

The Contenders

11 Balls to the Wall - Accept
12 The Chemical Wedding - Bruce Dickinson
13 Killing Machine - Judas Priest

To he who said that The Black Album was a turning point for Metallica: you aren't wrong, but they definitely weren't going uphill. Killing Machine (or Hell Bent for Leather as Americans know it as) was close to perfection, and this is one of the best metal albums of all time.
Also how the hell does Bon Jovi keep getting near the top of these lists?

14 Persistence of Time - Anthrax
15 Empire - Queensryche
16 Through Silver in Blood - Neurosis
17 Figure Number Five - Soilwork
18 Asylum - Disturbed
19 10,000 Days - Tool
20 Once - Nightwish
