162 Motley Crue - Shout at the Devil V 1 Comment
163 Black Sabbath - Heaven and Hell

Just a very good album

Why is this 442 and below mob rules?

It's a great album.Why don't you put it's cover image?

What 298?! This album is L E G E N D A R Y

164 Naglfar - Harvest
165 Watain - The Wild Hunt
166 Therion - Lemuria / Sirius B

This is the only good album from this pile of crap list

167 Bathory - Hammerheart

I do not understand how this masterpiece could be left unnoticed. A little annoyed at that. - LadyBanshee

Honestly, I am very pissed. this album is one of bathorys finest and deserves more recognition

168 Rammstein - Mutter
169 Iron Maiden - The Book of Souls

Empire Of The Clouds is my favorite song. - CostcoHotDogs

This album is maiden’s new masterpiece comprising every great parts of its own.

170 Lamb of God - Ashes of the Wake

The best lamb of god album and also a masterpiece, deserves in top place

The definitive album for metal. This should definitely be top 10. In 20 years we will finally see how this album grossly influenced metalbands and the "newer" metal genres for decades to come.

160? WHAT! - heavymetalrocker777

171 Avenged Sevenfold - Nightmare

I hate people who say "Master Of Puppets", yea it's a decent/good album, but its overrated. This Is a Masterpiece. Not a single song I consider filler. This is 100% masterpiece

Master of Puppets was not commercially well received. The Black album was. It doesn't mean the latter is better though. Screw popularity. Bring it hard or go home.

Master of Puppets is in first place in Rolling Stone Magazine's global metal album's opinion poll. It has not budged for decades. There's also 3 other Metallica albums in the top ten also that have not budged. Case closed.

Out of all metal bands in existence I got lucky and I started with this one and constantly listen their music, I still have yet to find an album with as much beauty in each song as this one.

172 Volbeat - The Strength/The Sound/The Songs

This should be number 1 because Volbeat is one of the best heavy metal bands there ever is with the songs A Warriors Call and Still Counting And River Queen.

173 D'erlanger - Lazzaro
174 Helloween - Keeper of the Seven Keys, Pt 1
175 Judas Priest - Sad Wings of Destiny

There is no way this should be this far down.

176 Behemoth - The Satanist
177 Down - Nola

Anselmo literally and metaphorically smoking it.

178 Megadeth - Endgame
179 Therion - Theli
180 Pantera - Far Beyond Driven

Yes, it was. But Vulgar owns it left, right and centre.
