361 Iron Maiden - Live After Death

The energy on this album is incredible. Sure, a studio album is one thing, but this record stands as a candid reflection of Iron Maiden's musicality. It inimitably combines the primal with the sophisticated.

Yes, it's an album, a live album, but Iron Maiden fans must think they suck live. Well, they don't. This is also a great dvd Iron Maiden fans and it is one of their best from the Powerslave tour. Yes, I prefer Beast On The Road, but this is an essential purchase on dvd and cd.

362 The Inner Circle - Evergrey

Perhaps the greatest progressive concept album ever made. I feel it surpasses all of Queensryche's best due to its subject matter, arrangements, and sheer heaviness.

363 Solitude, Dominance, Tragedy - Evergrey

The great progressive Swede's answer to Queensryche, their sophomore album was produced by Andy La Roche I believe and it's a belter of an album.

364 Sepultura - a-Lex
365 Revocation - Deathless
366 Deicide - Once Upon the Cross
367 Cannibal Corpse - Torture
368 Mors Principium Est - Dawn of the 5th Era
369 Mayhem - Deathcrush
370 Sleep - Dopesmoker
371 The Last in Line - Dio
372 Imaginaerum - Nightwish
373 Deep Purple in Rock - Deep Purple

This is one of the first heavy metal albums. A good traditional heavy metal album. - zxm
