Greatest Metal Albums
The Contenders: Page 11
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.
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
This albums reminds me very much of Master Of Puppets or Rust In Peace
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
One of the best Prog metal albums
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.
I don't get all the fuss over this one. It pales in comparison to their previous album.
This should be at top 20 list
It is definitely one of the best Slayer albums. The mix is The Exorcist on vinyl - probably just the way Slayer wanted it.
Slayer is too amazing! The second album by them has received world-wide critical acclaim. This album is legendary.
The production is dreadful, which ironically makes it unique. It sounds literally evil.
One of Slayer's best albums, but no Reign in Blood, Reign in Blood, Raining blood.
I love Black Magic (Metallica's brief cover is smoking), Crionics, Show No Mercy, Evil Has No Boundaries...
Epic maiden albums with standouts - Afraid To Shoot Strangers, Fear Is The Key, From Here To Eternity, Fear of the Dark, Be Quick or Be Dead, Judas Be My Guide
