This thread is for fans of metal. Heavy metal, or no metal at all! Wimps and posers, leave the hall!
(Geez, why did I just quote Manowar? That band is seriously lame.....)
This list is what I consider to be the best metal albums of all-time, and it covers many different metal genres.
Opeth - Still Life
Opeth - Morningrise
Dream Theater - Awake
Dream Theater - Images and Words
Ephrat - No One's Words
Porcupine Tree - Coma Divine
Iron Maiden - Piece of Mind
Metallica - Master of Puppets
Lamb of God - Ashes of the Wake
Type O Negative - October Rust
Cradle of Filth - Midian
Dimmu Borgir - Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia
Royal Hunt - Paradox
The Tangent - Not as Good as the Book
The Mentors - You Axed For It (yeah, I know this really does not fit with everything else on the list)
If I really wanted to include hardcore punk into the mix, I would also add some Bad Brains, MDC and Minor Threat to the list..... But that is not metal, so I won't. :-)
Your favorite metal albums of all-time? If you don't like metal, just say that Manowar is the greatest metal band of all-time - that's enough to piss any true metal fan off. Heh.
