Greatest Metal Albums

The Contenders: Page 13

241 Machine Head - Burn My Eyes

As you put on this album you already hear from the first song it's the kind of album that will easily beats all the others...

Let freedom ring with a shotgun blast!

242 Sepultura - Arise

The production is too flat and it lacks the technicality of Beneath The Remains. Andreas Kisser is electric on this one though, as is Igor. Did he use baseball bats to smash his snare on this one. I saw them on this tour and was so pumped for days afterwards that I literally won a sporting trophy.

243 Testament - The New Order

Crappy cover version on this one. Metallica knew better.

244 Vio-Lence - Eternal Nightmare

Way back when, this album was the business. Rob Flynn carving it up like a chicken.

245 Sodom - Persecution Mania V 1 Comment
246 Destruction - Eternal Devastation
247 Exhorder - Slaughter in the Vatican

I haven't dusted this one off in a while, but it was a violent slab of Thrash.

248 Anthrax - Spreading the Disease

They should come up with a better storage medium than vinyl. It's the petrol engine of music.

Anthrax's best album, and the production values on it is staggering considering it's vinyl.

250 S.O.D. - Speak English or Die

I love this album, but I'm not sure what to make of the lyrics on it. Taken at face value, they're distasteful. Taken as humorous, then I guess they're humorous. Dunno.

251 Sodom - Agent Orange
252 Manowar - Battle Hymns

One of the best metal albums ever...

253 Therion - Secret of the Runes
254 Manowar - Warriors of the World
255 Uroboros - Dir en grey
256 Insomnium - Above the Weeping World

Mortal Share just really starts of the album then all the songs drive through beautifully

257 Beyond Hell / Above Heaven - Volbeat
258 Slipknot - All Hope Is Gone
259 Promise and Terror - Blaze Bayley V 1 Comment
260 Dream Theater - When Dream and Day Unite
