Best Fifth Albums From Heavy Metal BandsIronman02
The Top Ten
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 album is a masterpiece. - Metarock
Rime Of The Ancient Marriner... Enough said
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!
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
I've gonna told you, this album is the best fifth metal album of all time. It's also the best Slayer album of all time besides Slayer glorious career. The music and lyrics are incredibly awesome than the other fifth metal album - Alcort

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.2 Comments
The best heavy metal album ever created besides Heaven and Hell.
A few songs on it.
Keep the faith
Bed of Roses
Dry county ( Listen To The Solo )
I’ll sleep when I’m dead
Blame it on the love of rock and roll
( not all of the ones...just the ones I can remember! ) - DaringXx
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?
8? Seriously? This should at least be within top 5!
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?
Very good and interesting album
Not a metal band.
Ministry is awesome
Incredible album! IT is a must to listen to this album! Awesome vocals, meaningful lyrics, loud screams, and enjoyable songs!
Not a metal band. Though this album has some metal in it.
