Greatest Metal Albums

The Contenders: Page 7

121 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

Eagle Fly Free, Dr. Stein, I Want Out and The Title Track are all awesome songs. - IronSabbathPriest

122 The Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden

There is already this album on this list - zxm

It's their perogative to place Total Eclipse on this album, but it's my perogative not to buy that crappy song.

123 Blind - Corrosion of Conformity

The most underrated album in the history.

Rough and raw, this is CoC at what I consider their heaviest and best. Vote With A Bullet is thrash.

124 No More Tears - Ozzy Osbourne
125 Megadeth - Countdown To Extinction

Megadeth have one Animal Rights Awards (well Mustaine did, because they.'re essentially a solo project in my eyes), for the song Countdown To Extinction. He is very intelligent, a great guitarist, and has integrity. He always did. I think this is their second best album behind Peace Sells...

I own most thrash albums. This is my 2nd behind Peace...Funnily, the production's not as good as Peace...

I can't understand why this album is on 47th place it is simply the best megadeth album of all time

The best megadeth alblum and also the one you should get if youdont have any other alblums also it comtans their biggest song synfyny of distruction

126 Death - Symbolic
127 Ghost - Meliora

Best by far from 2010 ahead

128 Amon Amarth - Twilight of the Thunder God

Brutal in every form. I would list some song names but they all kick major ass in their own way.

129 Death - The Sound of Perseverance V 2 Comments
130 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.

131 Guns N Roses - Appetite For Destruction

This isn't metal guys - Metal_Treasure

Already on the list... - benhos

132 Twisted Sister - Stay Hungry
133 Vol. 4 - Black Sabbath
134 Through Silver In Blood - Neurosis
135 The Crimson Idol - W.A.S.P.
136 Iron Maiden - Piece of Mind

How is this 119... ? How is this below 5 other maiden albums and 80 other inferior albums?

Because it's at 151 because you and me are only two people who have noticed it.

This should be in the Top 10. And remove one of the overrated Metallica crap

Piece of Mind should be in Top 10, or 20 at least...

137 Powerslave - Iron Maiden

Awesome album way better than number.

Some of it is, but it's not as consistent. classic Maiden though.

138 Kataklysm - Waiting for the End to Come
139 Nightwish - Dark Passion Play
140 Nightwish - Wishmaster

The pinnacle of music.
