The Contenders: Page 5

81 Guns N' Roses - Appetite For Destruction

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

90 Byzantine - And They Shall Take Up Serpents
91 Manowar - Kings of Metal

This is real heavy metal! The heavist and the most powerful in this world! In my opinion this albom better than Master Of Puppets, no? Yeah! Listen this albom! Vote!

LOVE this album, they ARE the TRUE KINGS OF METAL. HAIL TO YA!

I'll meet you half-way. I'll vote but not listen to a band named after a jellyfish. Lol.

93 Dark Tranquillity - Fiction
94 Quiet Riot - Metal Health

This should be on top 10 this made metal popular

A classic.

95 Opeth - Ghost Reveries
96 System of a Down - Toxicity

It's definitely System Of A Down's best album, but it lacks the longevity of the greats. Once you've heard it enough times it's not something I return to. Hey, I've just talked myself into dusting it off.

Best band, best album..

This is one of a kind!

This is the best album of all time! (In my opinion) Every song on this album is amazing E.G. Needles, Toxicity, Chop Suey!, Prison Song etc. - Toms_system

97 Opeth - Still Life
98 British Steel - Judas Priest

Is this cover a shaving kit promotion?

99 Badmotorfinger - Soundgarden

Rusty Chains, Jesus Christ Pose, Room A Thousand Years Wide and many others are classics. You're not a Dio or Black Sabbath fan without this one in your player.

I'm a Dio fan and a Sabbath fan and I'm don't this album very much. I like outshined, but that's about it. - Edgelord

100 Rage Against the Machine - Rage Against the Machine

Same powerful anti-system message as the one described by "...And justice for All". But the delivery of the message is completely opposite: pure rage and fury here, when Metallica chose the deep, elaborate approach.
