Top Ten Metal Albums of the 20th Century
The Top Ten
1989. A technical thrash masterpiece - no bad songs on this album. - Metal_Treasure
Probably the heaviest traditional heavy metal album!
1998. A concept album that is essential in the power metal subgenre. - Metal_Treasure
Not a pure metal album, but songs like Children of the Grave, Into the Void and Lord of This World are pretty good metal songs
This album was very important because in 1976 metal was a fragile baby and this album helped it grow up - with Dio impecable vocals and Ritchie Blackmore epic songwriting and technical guitar playing. After this album Judas Priest and Iron Maiden released albums that made metal a thing. - Metal_Treasure
2 masterpieces over 8 minutes: Stargazer & A Light in the Black
1995. Epic, heavy, melodic. Dante's Inferno alone is a reason to consider this album one of the best. - Metal_Treasure
One of my favourites albums.
Best described by Kerrang! as sounding like "sticking your head into the jet nozzle of a Stealth Bomber."
The album is nothing short of ludicrous, insane, and so many other crazy terms rolled into one, displaying Devin Townsend's HUGE vocal range and Gene Hoglan's "machine-like" drumming ability.
When it came to Extreme, "City" is the definition of extreme. - BloodyThunderX
Thrash Metal before Metallica!
It's a must listen album, an amazing cohesive and well crafted piece of art.
A death metal masterpiece. - Metal_Treasure
1996. One of the heaviest metal albums (brutal technical death metal). - Metal_Treasure
