Best Live Metal Albums

Here is my list of the top 10 live metal albums. Most live versions of songs sound faster than the original and the sound quality is not very good. Many fans stay away from live albums because they want to hear an artist's song clearly as to not take way from the integrity of the song. If you are going to invest in a live metal album, you will not be disappointed by these.

The Top Ten

1 Live After Death - Iron Maiden
2 Unleashed In the East - Judas Priest V 1 Comment
3 Live S***: Binge & Purge - Metallica
4 Speak of the Devil - Ozzy Osbourne
5 Official Live: 101 Proof - Pantera
6 S&M - Metallica
7 Dio at Donington UK: Live 1983 & 1987 - Dio
8 Imaginations Through the Looking Glass (Live DVD 2004) - Blind Guardian Imaginations Through the Looking Glass (Live DVD 2004) - Blind Guardian

Watching this is an incredible experience for 2 reasons:
1) Blind Guardian are very good live so you get almost the same quality as in the studio versions
2) involvement of the crowd is awesome at their shows - fans sing a lot (just watch the second half of Valhalla or the entire live version of The Bard's Song). - Metal_Treasure

9 Alive In Athens - Iced Earth

Come on this is nr1 and it's not even been recommended?
