Greatest Metal Albums

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Mastodon - Crack the Skye
122 One X - Three Days Grace
123 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.

124 Nile - In Their Darkened Shrines
125 Blind Guardian - Battalions of Fear
126 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.

127 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.

128 No More Tears - Ozzy Osbourne
129 Ghost - Meliora

Best by far from 2010 ahead

130 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.

131 Death - The Sound of Perseverance V 2 Comments
132 Mayhem - De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas
133 Vol. 4 - Black Sabbath

1: Volume 4 - Black Sabbath
2: Diary of a Madman - Ozzy Osbourne
3: Holy Diver - Dio
4: Ace of Spades - Motorhead
5: Painkiller - Judas Priest - Alpha101

134 Guns N Roses - Appetite For Destruction

This isn't metal guys - Metal_Treasure

Already on the list... - benhos

135 Twisted Sister - Stay Hungry
136 Through Silver In Blood - Neurosis
137 The Crimson Idol - W.A.S.P.
138 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...

139 Powerslave - Iron Maiden

Awesome album way better than number.

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

140 Kataklysm - Waiting for the End to Come
