Greatest Metal Albums

The Contenders: Page 15

281 Between Here & Lost - Love and Death
282 Korn - The Paradigm Shift
283 Judas Priest - Defenders of the Faith

The best Priest album ever! It has all the metal ingredients. Why is the rating so low? This album deserves to be in the top 10.

284 Killswitch Engage - As Daylight Dies

I know this album aren't so knowledge as MOP or RIP but... Come ON GUYS this album is a totally beast

Brilliant album, Howard Jones enough said

285 Lightning to the Nations - Diamondhead
286 Gamma Ray - Land of the Free
287 Five Finger Death Punch - War Is the Answer
288 An Ocean Between Us - As I Lay Dying
289 Aria - Armageddon
290 Blizzard Of Ozz - Ozzy Osbourne
291 Of Mice & Men - The Flood
292 Darkthrone - A Blaze In the Northern Sky
293 Anvil - Worth the Weight

There are so many landmark metal albums. One that never reached it's audience is Anvil's masterpiece Worth The Weight. It is progressive, aggressive, and angry. Anvil were at an all time low. The music they wrote was full of rage and venom. Despite the fact that teir recognition never came. This record could stand beside the big four's best. It is a masterpiece begining to end. Anvil's brand of thrash will leave you wishing you knew about this band earlier. A testament to Metal.

294 Death - Scream Bloody Gore
295 Queensryche - Operation Mindcrime
296 The Legacy - Testament

Probably their best album, but it needs a remake. Currently they're rocking Bay Area thrash like no one.

297 Anthrax - Fistful of Metal
298 Iron Maiden - Killers

Iron Maiden fans ignored this one at their own peril. I think it goes toe-to-toe with The Number of the Beast.

299 Iron Maiden - Dance of Death
300 Iron Maiden - Final Frontier
