Greatest Metal Albums

The Contenders: Page 7

121 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.

122 No More Tears - Ozzy Osbourne
123 Ghost - Meliora

Best by far from 2010 ahead

124 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

125 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.

126 Blind Guardian - Nightfall in Middle-Earth

How is this masterpiece so low? - DejanKalinic

127 Death - The Sound of Perseverance V 2 Comments
128 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.

129 Black Sabbath - Heaven and Hell

Just a very good album

130 Guns N Roses - Appetite For Destruction

This isn't metal guys - Metal_Treasure

Already on the list... - benhos

131 See You On the Other Side - Korn

Is this the one with Did My Time? If so, that track is epic.

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 Pantera - Cowboys From Hell

How does this not get into the top 15 at least? This was one of the first albums to bring attention to groove metal and a lot of the bands you listen to today are influenced by this band. From Cemetary Gates to Domination, this album is just amazing!

An awesome album from start to finish. Domination is my favourite song for obvious reasons. - IronSabbathPriest
