Best Fourth Albums From Heavy Metal Bands

The Top Ten

1 Rust in Peace - Megadeth

ARE YOU..., OOHH...seriously a pop/rock bands album, not only is Bon jovi not metal but, seriously rust in peace is not only the best 4th album from a metal band, but it is the single best metal album ever...just. Wow not number 1...*sigh*

Easy choice, best metal album ever made. And Justice for all would be second and toss up between South of Heaven, Piece of Mind, Persistence of Time and Vol. 4 for third vote.

Yeah. This record actually edges out Master of Puppets. Best fourth album? Easily - because it's the best metal album. Period.

One of the best metal albums period. - Metarock

2 ...And Justice For All - Metallica

This list shows why record companies keep pumping out the same old garbage. Thank God for Metallica. To have definitely Leopard, Bon Jovi and motley Crue in the same list is heresy.

Why is this a list and why is rust in peace higher

One is in this album.

3 Piece of Mind - Iron Maiden

Cool Riffs Cool Solos Cool Cover Cool ALBUM GREATEST BAND

This has to be number one!

4 South of Heaven - Slayer
5 Human - Death

The 2nd Greatest Bon Jovi Album of All-time!
Born to Be My Baby, I'll Be There for You, Lay Your Hands on Me, Bad Medicine & Homebound Train...

No boundaries not afraid to try new things

19 Somewhere Far Beyond - Blind Guardian
20 Natural Born Chaos - Soilwork
21 Girls, Girls, Girls - Motley Crue

You call this girly stuff metal? - Metal_Treasure

I'm a huge Motley Crue fan and loved this album when it first came out, but besides Wildside and Girls, Girls, Girls, the album just doesn't hold up that well today like 'Too Fast... ', Shout... ' and '... Feelgood'. It sounds dated and has a lot of filler songs and two throwaway tracks 'Nona' and 'Jailhouse Rock'.

22 Akroasis - Obscura
23 Empire - Queensryche
24 Accident of Birth - Bruce Dickinson
25 Land of the Free - Gamma Ray

Absolute masterpiece - DejanKalinic
