The Top Ten

1 Vulgar Display of Power - Pantera

I love this one. This one is magic:]

Far and Away the best record of 1992 for Metal.

1. Vulgar Display Of Power
2. Dehumanizer
3. Dirt
4. The Ritual (criminally underrated finale from Testament Original lineup)
5. Countdown To Extinction

2 Images and Words - Dream Theater

The begging of dream theater well dream and day unite may be their debut but this is where they started kickin ass

3 Countdown to Extinction - Megadeth

1992 was a great year for metal, but this should be number 1! Vulgar display of power, maybe. But this is the one of the, if not the, greatest album of all time! - gemcloben

Better than Vulgar but not Wasp's The Crimson Idol which is missing from this list. - Highway69

I would like to say something about it, the song 'symphony of destruction' was the first metal song which I listened, it did a magic on me, I love megadeth, forever and ever
May they live forever! - Ananya
