81 Maudlin of the Well - Bath
82 Candlemass - Epicus Doomicus Metallicus V 1 Comment
83 Symphony X - The Odyssey
84 Deep Purple in Rock - Deep Purple

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

85 Blind Guardian - Tales from the Twilight World
86 Sonata Arctica - Ecliptica
87 Moonsorrow - Voimasta Ja Kunniasta
88 Doomsday Machine - Arch Enemy
89 The Madness Begins - Powermad
90 Mind Funk - Mind Funk
91 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

93 Byzantine - And They Shall Take Up Serpents
94 Iron Maiden - Somewhere in Time

I bought it, like it, but Iron Maiden became somewhere lost in time to me after that. I think those underrated thrash metal band's - whose name I can't quite recall - had something to do with it. The memory remains somewhere in time, somewhere.

This was their Black album. Synth guitars, a bit more radio friendly, and is actually very strong.

This is a Top 5 album all time

Very Underrated! Better than AMOLAD!

95 Mastodon - Blood Mountain

Dude this album is epic way better than anything avenged sevenfold ever did.
