Linkin Park is alt rock not close to metal
This album is not metal LP. Hybrid Theory and Meteora counted as Nu-Metal, but that's a separate category.
I've always considered early LP as metal. Perhaps the cultural divide is too great. If it sounds like metal then it is metal, whether good or bad.V 2 Comments
Most powerful and evil album in Metal history. And my favourite!V 1 Comment
Schism is my favourite song by Tool. - IronSabbathPriest
Tool's Black album. And that is a tremendous acknowledgement by MJK to show how much he likes bands who switch it up. The outer-sleeve is black. Sublime Tool.
It is the only album that equals Master of Puppets in my opinion. I have just never considered them to have ever been a metal band, but a heavy progressive rock band.
I think this is one of the best progressive metal albums
Hey, it's Tool. The only band who knew when to stop.

Really this is not in the top ten. A7X really went nuts on this album especially the Rev and Synester Gates. Hello Bat Country, MIA, Beast and the Harlot. A7X is keeping metal alive.
Not better than the ultimate classics but it is the only REAL metal album of 2005 on, Avenged Sevenfold are also the only REAL HEAVY METAL band in the last 15 years
You are an idiot. They are not EVEN metal. They are actually modern rock.
Anyone else notice this is on here twice? Just shows you how good it is.
This is an insanely good album.. EASILY COMPARABLE TO NUMBER OF THE BEAST.V 1 Comment
That's on Soulfly's average Archangel album. Is it a cover or a coinkidink?
Slayer at their most diverse, technical, and best.
Lombardo's all over this one like a rash.
Their second best in my opinion. I think if you had a 'Best Of' collection of Iced Earth songs, from all eras and incarnations, you'd need a 1TB HD to fit them on.
Pete Sandoval was not human way back when.
Again, they've always been a metal band here. Metal-lite perhaps, but a rocking metal band nevertheless.
Classic! Although I would say it's more hard rock than metal...
Great sound, powerful songs, the two guitars harmonize beautifully and slash's solos on this album are legendary!
Too many great songs to make a toplist on this one
