164 D'erlanger - Lazzaro

166 Avenged Sevenfold - Nightmare

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.

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.

This album should be higher.
definitely in top 50

167 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.

168 Rammstein - Mutter
169 Helloween - Keeper of the Seven Keys, Pt 1
170 Judas Priest - Sad Wings of Destiny

There is no way this should be this far down.

171 Behemoth - The Satanist
172 Iron Maiden - The Book of Souls

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

173 Down - Nola

Anselmo literally and metaphorically smoking it.

174 Megadeth - Endgame
175 Therion - Theli
176 Sounding the Seventh Trumpet - Avenged Sevenfold

Now this, is the BEST album in metal history, the ultimate combination between pure beauty and brutal screaming, nothing better.. the only metal albums that are even close to this are Metropolis 2 scenes from a memory by dream theater and Colors by Between the buried and me.. - Mcflupy

NO I hope this album dies in a hole for being an awful PIECE OF SH! T - christangrant

Parrallax II for me. That's not human.

177 Riverside - Second Life Syndrome
178 Demanufacture - Fear Factory
179 Venom - Black Metal
180 Testament - The New Order

Crappy cover version on this one. Metallica knew better.
