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 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.

The true metal

104 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.

105 Byzantine - Fundamental Component
106 Motorhead - Ace of Spades

Way too low on this list. Should easily be in the top 10!

Top 20 for me.

107 Slipknot - Slipknot

A masterpiece

108 Through Silver In Blood - Neurosis
109 Blind Guardian - Follow the Blind
110 Norther - Dreams of Endless War
111 The Human Contradiction - Delain
112 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

113 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

114 Death - Symbolic
115 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.

116 Overkill - Feel the Fire

Best Overkill album ever! '

117 Autumn Eternal - Panopticon
118 Celtic Frost - Morbid Tales V 1 Comment
119 Helloween - Keeper of the Seven Keys, Pt. 2

In my eyes, this is the definitive metal album, that everyone should listen to. Not a single bad song.

Simply this one and it's brother (Part 1) are the two best metal albums of all time

A masterpiece from beginning to end

Why so low
