The Top Ten

1 Difficult to Cure - Rainbow

This isn't the best album on this list but I put it at #1 because this is where it all started for Flemming Rasmussen in 1981 and his involvement with metal music.
Flemming Rasmussen recorded Rainbow's Difficult to Cure in his studio Sweet Silence Studios. Metallica liked the Rainbow album and wanted to get a similar sound by recording there, too. Which they did (as you can see below). - Metal_Treasure

2 Ride the Lightning - Metallica

Flemming Rasmussen co-produced this album and recorded it in his studio (roles: Producer, Engineering, Mixing).
Kirk Hammett:
"We were really excited to be at Sweet Silence Studios because that's where Rainbow did Difficult to Cure. We were excited because we liked the sound of that album, and we were looking to get a similar sound for our album, using that studio and the same engineer, Flemming." - Metal_Treasure

3 Master of Puppets - Metallica

Flemming Rasmussen co-produced and recorded it in his studio (roles: Producer, Engineering). - Metal_Treasure

4 Nightfall in Middle-Earth - Blind Guardian Nightfall in Middle-Earth - Blind Guardian

Flemming Rasmussen co-produced it with Blind Guardian and provided the mixing.
Only part of this album was recorded in his studio - recording and engineering of the vocals.
Hansi Kursch admitted that recording his vocals is "a big challenge for every engineer"(for many reasons - multi layers, his specific voice and distortion, etc). This album had more complex vocals than previous Blind Guardian albums so Hansi did it with Flemming Rasmussen.
Flemming Rasmussen roles in this album: Engineering, Recording, Mixing - Metal_Treasure

It wasn't recorded in his studio.
