Best Hard Rock, Glam & Heavy Metal Albums of the '80s

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Kiss - Lick It Up
22 Black Sabbath - Heaven and Hell
23 Iron Maiden - Iron Maiden
24 Iron Maiden - Seventh Son of a Seventh Son

This is the best album of iron maiden all the songs on this album enjoyable and there is no weak songs maybe the prophecy but is good too. I'm glad to see the number of the beast first but people that don't know iron maiden probably think that the number of the beast is the best iron maiden album... It's not, it's the most known album but not the best so vote for this or even powerslave (masterpiece album).

25 Iron Maiden - Killers
26 Iron Maiden - Powerslave
27 Riot - Thundersteel

One of the best heavy/power metal albums EVER! - ne6tastnika

28 Megadeth - Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?
29 Judas Priest - British Steel
30 Quiet Riot - Metal Health

God of scream - Kevin DuBrow - guy who didn't like Pamela Anderson - must be here!

31 Love at First Sting - Scorpions

Should be in the Top 10.
Hits "Rock You Like a Hurricane", "Still Loving You" - Irina2932

32 Judas Priest - Defenders of the Faith

Ripping rocking album from an awesome band

33 Blind Guardian - Battalions of Fear

As many people give credit to Helloween, this band took the roots of power metal a step further by incorporating precise speed and incredible vocals.

Awesome speed metal touching on thrash but with ear raping melodic vocals - raw and powerful.

They are not a thrash band but this album is so heavy, fast and aggressive that could give thrash bands a run for their money. Vocals alone can win it all (Hansi K├╝rsch is one of a kind metal singer). Try the songs 'Majesty', 'Guardian of the blind'. - Metal_Treasure

34 Somewhere In Time - Iron Maiden
35 Metallica - Kill 'Em All
36 Def Leppard - Pyromania V 1 Comment
37 Operation: Mindcrime - Queensryche

One of the great heavy metal concept albums

38 Judas Priest - Turbo
39 Iron Maiden - Piece of Mind
40 Helloween - Keeper of the Seven Keys, Pt. 2
