183 Mercyful Fate - Melissa

185 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

186 World's Collide - Apocalyptica
187 Seasons In the Abyss - Slayer

This is an absolute masterpiece from slayer slowed down like south of heaven.

188 Paranoid - Black Sabbath
189 Visual Lies - Lizzy Borden

Memory jogging. Thanks for the cognitive workout.

190 Yngwie Malmsteen - Rising Force
191 Nevermore - Dead Heart In a Dead World V 1 Comment
192 Balls to the Wall - Accept

Germany's Accept is an excellent album in my collection, I just try to look away at the cover though.

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 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.
