Best Traditional Heavy Metal Albums

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Headhunter - Krokus

Probably their only metal release, due to their hard rock latter releases, Eat The Rich ruled the planet for a while there.

82 Conspiracy - King Diamond
83 The Real Thing - Faith No More

Hey, despite the hits, The Real Thing is the real thing. Jim Martin is smoking on Epic, Surprise Your Dead, Zombie Eaters, The Real Thing, The Morning After and the cover War Pigs.

84 Blues for the Red Sun - Kyuss

I chose this Kyuss album specifically, because although they're regarded as stoner rock, this album is so bloody heavy that I can only call it a heavy metal album. It is a beast of a record, as all of their albums were. They mop the floor with Queens of the Stone Age.

85 Audio Secrecy - Stone Sour

Stand and deliver heavy metal, without the masks, and probably their best album.
