Greatest Metal Albums

The Contenders: Page 13

241 Overkill - Horrorscope V 1 Comment
242 Motorhead - March or Die

Sad to see this is so low

243 My Winter Storm - Tarja
244 Sacred Heart - Dio

How is this album not on here. With songs as great as rock n roll children, king of rock n roll and sacred heart and you get this masterpiece. So underrated - luke_cody_03

245 Ubriakore - Killers in Rage
246 Redeemer of Souls - Judas Priest

Their lead singer recorded this while he was 62 years old. That just proves that his voice is still better after 30 years! - Aragorn98

247 Stratovarius - Infinite
248 Mandrake - Edguy
249 Seven Seals - Primal Fear
250 Kill - Cannibal Corpse
251 Obzen - Meshuggah
252 Terminal Redux - Vektor
253 Dark Roots of Earth - Testament
254 Metal on Metal - Anvil
255 Korn - Follow the Leader

This is the epitome of 90's metal. - Zahveed

Better then a lot of that crap up there"

I like McFarlane's artwork better.

256 Metallica - St. Anger
257 Pantera - Cowboys From Hell

How does this not get into the top 15 at least? This was one of the first albums to bring attention to groove metal and a lot of the bands you listen to today are influenced by this band. From Cemetary Gates to Domination, this album is just amazing!

An awesome album from start to finish. Domination is my favourite song for obvious reasons. - IronSabbathPriest

258 Pantera - Official Live: 101 Proof

The best live metal album i've heard - purelegend1

259 System of a Down - Toxicity

It's definitely System Of A Down's best album, but it lacks the longevity of the greats. Once you've heard it enough times it's not something I return to. Hey, I've just talked myself into dusting it off.

Best band, best album..

This is one of a kind!

This is the best album of all time! (In my opinion) Every song on this album is amazing E.G. Needles, Toxicity, Chop Suey!, Prison Song etc. - Toms_system

260 Avenged Sevenfold - City Of Evil

Really this is not in the top ten. A7X really went nuts on this album especially the Rev and Synester Gates. Hello Bat Country, MIA, Beast and the Harlot. A7X is keeping metal alive.

Not better than the ultimate classics but it is the only REAL metal album of 2005 on, Avenged Sevenfold are also the only REAL HEAVY METAL band in the last 15 years

You are an idiot. They are not EVEN metal. They are actually modern rock.

Anyone else notice this is on here twice? Just shows you how good it is.

This is an insanely good album.. EASILY COMPARABLE TO NUMBER OF THE BEAST.
