Greatest Metal Albums

The Contenders: Page 14

261 D'erlanger - Basilisk
262 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!

263 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.

264 Testament - The New Order

Crappy cover version on this one. Metallica knew better.

265 Vio-Lence - Eternal Nightmare

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

266 Sodom - Persecution Mania V 1 Comment
267 Destruction - Eternal Devastation
268 Exhorder - Slaughter in the Vatican

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

269 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.

271 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.

272 Three Days Grace - One X

This album is the greatest compilation of music ever assembled. I didn't know who I was until hearing this album. No matter what mood I'm in before listening to this album I always finnish feeling lucky for the life I have

273 Foo Fighters - One by One

You call this Metal?
