Best Traditional Heavy Metal Albumstruemetal
The Contenders: Page 4
Recognised as not only the greatest thrash metal record ever made, but also the greatest heavy metal record of all time, and the greatest progressive thrash metal record ever made. 30-years on and still no-one has come close to touching it, which is great but also a little sad.
One of the most recognized albums by Metallica, some say it is the last good one but Justice is awesome and Metallica is okay. But Madter is amazingV 1 Comment
One of the heaviest and technical albums I have ever heard. It doesn't seem as heavy as others but The Human Abstract is so hard to play it would take months to learn it.
It is a little heavier but just a wee bit less technical. This is the first album without that first singer.
Pretty good Metalcore.V 1 Comment
Killswitch Engage is the bomb. I totally love their music. I love Life to LifelessV 1 Comment
Pantera isn't as hard as Human Abstract, Winds of Plague, or Killswitch Engage but it is defiantly very heavy. They used to be a hair metal band but they went into heavy metal slowly from Power Metal to Vulgar Display of Power
Sorry to pop your bubble, but this album pummels every album you just mentioned to a bloody pulp. Apart from Demanufacture, this album is the definition of heavy.
Metallica is not as technical or heavy but it is defiantly very influential. It is very technical and heavy but it isn't the top. Anyways, this album demonstrates Anti-American roots and Anti-American roots. Bringing a huge masterpiece
What? It is their most technical album they ever made. So much so that it regarded as one of the most technical metal records ever made. You must own the demo, because the version I own has Lars at his finest, Hetfield shredding it, and Hammet killing it. Newstead is no doubt playing it technically too, though he's inaudible.
Their most textured, sophisticated, and sublime record. It beats the guitar driven Operation Mindcrime hands down.
All killer, no filler. One of the greatest metal records ever made.
Don't pull that grunge crap on me either. Cornell sings like a young Dio, and this album is Sabbath-inspired metal thru and thru.
Sent this mighty heavy rock/metal band thru the stratosphere. It has so many classics on it that only the Black Album can rival it.
It's heavy, it's depressing, but it is delivered with such beauty and bittersweet harmonies that you can only smile and acknowledge as one of the best. Too many classics to bother mentioning.
Probably their only metal release, due to their hard rock latter releases, Eat The Rich ruled the planet for a while there.
