Greatest Metal Albums

The Contenders: Page 6

101 British Steel - Judas Priest

Is this cover a shaving kit promotion?

102 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

103 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.

104 Byzantine - Fundamental Component
105 Slipknot - Slipknot

A masterpiece

106 After Forever - After Forever

This self-titled album, I think the best not only in their work, but generally in female fronted metal. Power! Energy! Drive! And of course a stunning voice to the soul Floor Jansen. This masterpiece, which is 10 out of 10 points worth.

A great strong powerful album!
Voice of the beautiful Floor Jansen is amazing and hearing. Of course, the best album of their career and iodine of the best in metal in general.

The self-titled album this wonderful group I think the best not only in their work, but generally in female fronted metal. Power! Energy! Drive! - This is so you can
Describe it. And of course a terrific imagination voice Floщr Jansen

Get energized

108 Crack the Skye - Mastodon V 2 Comments
109 The Human Contradiction - Delain
110 Black Sabbath - Mob Rules

It's a masterpiece for the metal world

No doubt this album has the best songs

Best RJ Dio's work,even from Holy Diver

111 Linkin Park - Living Things


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 become so numb.

112 Overkill - Feel the Fire

Best Overkill album ever! '

113 The Living Infinite - Soilwork
114 Autumn Eternal - Panopticon
115 Celtic Frost - Morbid Tales V 1 Comment
116 Mastodon - Crack the Skye
117 One X - Three Days Grace
118 Kreator - Phantom Antichrist

I don't want to accept, that this masterpiece of a Band, that is way better and important than many of the other bands in this List, is that far away from the Top 20! In my opinion Kreator deserves a seat in the Round of world's best thrash Bands of all time! If you never heard them, try this record and get blown away!

Fantastic Kreator album. Another example of how to make a living making quality thrash albums. See, Metallica don't need to hold thrash bands hands forever. Kick them out of the nest and learn to fly like the rest.

119 Nile - In Their Darkened Shrines
120 Blind Guardian - A Twist in the Myth
