21 Master of Puppets - Metallica

Of course it's traditional. It's 30-years old and thrash is 35-years old, which means thrash is more traditional than most forms of metal. Pfft!

It's Not Traditional Heavy Metal, it's thrash metal - Metal_Treasure

22 Angel Witch - Angel Witch
23 Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne
24 Primal Concrete Sledge - Pantera

Because never has the title of a song been so fitting. Dimebag killing it.

25 Metal Gods - Judas Priest
26 Hell Patrol - Judas Priest
27 Iron Man - Black Sabbath
28 Am I Evil? - Diamond Head
29 Cemetary Gates - Pantera
30 A Touch of Evil - Judas Priest
31 Gates of Babylon
32 July - Katatonia

This track is so heavy, so moving, and I never tire of it. Spine-tingling stuff from the excellent album The Great Cold Distance.

33 Ghost In the Machine - Like Thieves

Emotive and crushing from some of the best, though least known, going round. YouTube it.

34 Shadow Moses - Bring Me the Horizon

One of the most venomous and emotive metal tracks I've ever heard. Not even Korn could replicate this fury and these breakdowns. Traditional? Probably not.

35 Sweet Leaf - Black Sabbath

Let's keep it traditional then, and keep the die-hards happy with some Sweet Leaf.

36 Children of the Damned - Iron Maiden
37 Flight of Icarus - Iron Maiden

Man, Iron Maiden were the business on their first 5 classics, and this classic is just one of many.

38 Green Manalishi - Judas Priest

I think it's a cover, but they own it.

39 22 Acacia Avenue - Iron Maiden
40 The Prisoner - Iron Maiden

Because of the killer opening and middle solos. Beast!
