The Top Ten

1 Phantom of the Opera - Iron Maiden

Album Iron Maiden
A true masterpiece by maiden and it doesn't even have Bruce Dickinson on Vocals provin how great maiden is even their first album was really good - christangrant

2 Rainbow In the Dark - Dio

Album Holy Diver
While the title track of this album is no doubt a great track but I believe this one is better although only by little bit - christangrant

3 Seek & Destroy - Metallica

Album Kill 'Em All
This was the first metal song I had ever heard and it holds a very special place in my heart however this would be my favorite song from Metallica if it weren't for One - christangrant

4 Welcome to the Jungle - Guns N' Roses

Album Appetite for Destruction
This is a really good song now more people would say Sweet Child O Mine would be the best but I disagree this song is better than that one is in my opinion - christangrant

Album Van Halen
a true classic from Van Halen - christangrant

6 Schizos (Are Never Alone) Parts I & II - Annihilator

20 Ride the Sky - Helloween

22 My Last Sunrise - Demons & Wizards

This is a supergroup and musicians weren't new to metal but technically it's a debut album so it's eligible. Dio debut album is also on the list and I thought it's acceptable to add this incredible song.
This album is so good that several (or all) songs could be here: Fiddler on the Green, Path of Glory, Heaven Denies, Tear Down the Wall, Blood on My Hands, Poor Man's Crusade - Metal_Treasure
