Ok you guys are crazy. The fact that this album is 203 proves it

203 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.

204 10000 Days - Tool

right in two, 10,000 days... the lyrics in this two songs.. incredible
- saeth

It is one of the best metal album from one of the greatest band in history of metal

Vicariously I live while the whole world dies. Much better you than I.

come on. vicarious, the pot, jambi

205 Blind Guardian - Somewhere Far Beyond

this should be in the top ten this was a major influence in power metal. - darknesswolf4736

206 Mastodon - Leviathan

This album is considered a heavy metal classic; James from Metallica told Troy and Brent at a support gig that they're handing over the metal torch to Mastodon.

Lmao! They've been trying to pass that torch on for decades but no one has stepped up to the plate and taken it. I'm sure it was a huge compliment to Mastodon though.

207 Children of Bodom - Hatebreeder
208 From Mars to Sirius - Gojira

Come on... The best metal band nowadays, in studio and on stage... FMTS is one of these albums that perfectly mix brutality and subtility, I mean, come on, Flying Whales, Where Dragons Dwell, Backbone, The Heaviest Matter Of The Universe are balanced by tracks like From Mars, Unicorn or Global Warming in such a smart way! One of the very best, deserves at least its place in the Top 50.

209 Blackout - Scorpions

This is their heaviest album and I really think it is metal. Just listen to Blackout, Now, Dynamite and to all the other classics and this one - DarkSideOfDragons

210 Overkill - Ironbound

This albums reminds me very much of Master Of Puppets or Rust In Peace

211 Metallica - Hardwired... to Self-Destruct
212 Mudvayne - L.D. 50
213 Motley Crue - Dr.Feelgood
214 Ascendancy - Trivium

Yes, it is immense. They have probably released 5 top albums and a couple of good ones. Who's complaining?

The only word to describe this album is insane

215 Iron Maiden - Brave New World
216 Clayman - In Flames
217 Opeth - Morningrise

One of the best Prog metal albums

218 The Chemical Wedding - Bruce Dickinson
219 Annihilator - Never, Neverland

I don't get all the fuss over this one. It pales in comparison to their previous album.

220 Indestructible - Disturbed V 2 Comments
