Greatest Metal Albums
The Contenders: Page 3
Masterpiece album,and great piece of art,for that reason should be rated much higher.V 1 Comment
I checked the top 10 several times to come to the conclusion that this album really isn't in there. Which is hard to believe. Like Metallica, lately they have made fools of themselves. In my opinion, this is the best album ever made.
Rage For Order is more experimental, more rewarding, and Queensryche did wear spandex and make-up.
One of the best albums ever. - ActOfGenesis
The best album ever made.V 2 Comments
One of the best albums! My favorite song of this album is definitely Stargazers! The old Nightwish is just amazing! - CenturyChild
Great album from the amazing Finnish band. A mixture of opera and metal. This is one of the best of their creations!
Best songs: Stargazers - the most difficult vocal part, Gethsemane, Swann heart, We walking in the air.
Vote for it people! This album is SO good that it definitely deserves to be in the top 10 at least!

All Hope Is Gone is amazing, it has a heavy and intense sound reminiscent of their previous albums, but is more mature and appeals to more people. Most albums on this list are from older bands, they may be more influential, but newer bands are just as good.
Do you realise that many of Slipknot's band members are in their 40's? They've been going for over 20-years themselves.V 1 Comment
I listened to some of it. There is just such a staggering array of bands to choose from now.
Probably the best melodies on the planet.
To be hornest I have nevered heardt for Kalmah till today-you must listen to this album-I have directly ordered it.V 1 Comment
This album is the favorite album of a pophead retard in this website who think this album is the best metal album ever, LOLOLOLOL nice album though. 93/100
But atmospheric black metal is not for modern crappy pop fans hehehehehe.
This is a masterpiece (technical thrash). Riffs and solos are fast, technical and elegant. - Metal_Treasure
That's because it's Jeff Waters. Enough said.
It is the greatest progressive metal album in all of history. Great lyrics, storyline, and obviously instrumental by the gods dream theater. Listen to it, and you'll forget any other band exists :P. Truly deserves a top 10 spot.
MASTERPIECE! Nicholas, Victoria And The Hypnotherapist, Such A Great Story
Before you vote. Make sure you listen to this album as well. - IronSabbathPriest
Is it better than Evergrey's Inner Circle? My curiosity is piqued, so I may check it out. I've heard nothing but good reports. Question: does Part 1 suck?V 4 Comments
In my opinion a defining album in the development of heavy metal. Black Sabbath is openly agreed upon as being the grandfathers of heavy metal and laid the groundwork for later bands, but this album by Judas Priest defined heavy metal and in my opinion is the GENESIS of modern day heavy metal. Listen to the whole album and keep in mind that this came out in 1978.
I honestly can't believe I've had to add this myself, it's an absolute master piece and deserves to be in the top 10 at least.V 1 Comment
A classic in the industrial metal genre.
I don't really think I can call this metal.
Classic theatrical concept album. King Diamond had so much class.
Wolf is not human. Jon is lightning.
Iced Earth's best album with the great Richard Christie and Steve DiGiorgio.
