181 Pantera - Far Beyond Driven

Yes, it was. But Vulgar owns it left, right and centre.

182 Babymetal - Babymetal

Don't care what you people say, but BM's blend fits SO WELL! And it's hard for a band like them to make 13 perfect tracks (almost equal in quality) on their FIRST ALBUM. Definitely my favorite album, and I don't care about the criticism I'm about to get for this. ok, I AM A METALHEAD! Like a HUMONGOUS FAN OF METAL BANDS! (Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Metallica, System of a Down, A7X, Slipknot, Judas Priest, X Japan, Disturbed, LP, Korn, Pantera)

183 Rammstein - Sehnsucht
184 Rammstein - Liebe ist für alle da
185 Venom - Welcome to Hell
186 Mercyful Fate - Melissa
187 Obscura - Gorguts
188 Nightwish - Once

Best Symphonic Power Metal Album:Ghost Love Score... Planet Hell... Dark Chest of Wonders... Nemo, Creek Mary's Blood... Kuolema Tekee Taiteilijan... Wish I had an Angel a Masterpiece�... I think this is the Greatest Album of Nightwish... and I like Tuomas because he's a god keyboardist master in Nightwish... Nobody can match him... Every each album will be difference sound and still amazing today...! The best heavy metal keyboardist is on rule the world..! Same reminiscent as Mark Tremonti with heavy metal musician style... - TheBerserker

189 World's Collide - Apocalyptica
190 Visual Lies - Lizzy Borden

Memory jogging. Thanks for the cognitive workout.

191 Yngwie Malmsteen - Rising Force
192 Nevermore - Dead Heart In a Dead World V 1 Comment
193 Kreator - Pleasure to Kill

This is about as ferocious as Thrash gets. It's almost a Death Metal album and it may as well be one.

This was when Europeans showed the Americans how thrash metal is properly done.

194 Avenged Sevenfold - Avenged Sevenfold

With classics like Afterlife and A Little Piece of Heaven, this album defines modern metal! A7X for #1! - Top10s

Second favorite album of all time. A7X are AMAZING with their experimentation and this perfectly defines their ever-original style

195 The Last in Line - Dio

It's better than Holy diver

196 Filosofem - Burzum

A black metal masterpiece - DejanKalinic

Best metal album ever.I love this long atmospheric songs. - pruvet

197 Bullet for My Valentine - Poison

I like the newer album Fever better but I voted for this so Bullet For My Valentine could get a little higher up there so they could be seen. Bullet is pure metal and is amazing.

198 Ghost - Opus Eponymous V 3 Comments
199 Def Leppard - Hysteria

20 million people who bought this can't be wrong - Joyrider

200 Overkill - The Years of Decay

Overkill's best album. Bobby Gustafson was electric. Mustaine wanted him, he was that damn good. But let's not ignore Bobby Blitz's unique vocals and the syncopated drumming of, um? whoever you were.
