PostSubject: List your top 5 Metal Albums of all times!   Mon Apr 26, 2010 12:10 pm

Greetings gents!
In light of a Discussion with PB, EJin and Shadrack.......... I thought it would be a good idea to throw this out there!
One rule...... the album you list must have been released on Vinyl and still in your collection, if not you sold out! Twisted Evil
Please join in!
This could be interesting!


Here goes mine!

1. Iron Maiden "Number of the Beast"

2. Ozzy "Tribute to Randy Rhodes"

3. Metallica "Kill'em All"

4. Judas Priest "British Steel"

5. Wasp "The last command" tie Yngwie Malmsteen "Rising Force"

Bonus: (Ronnie James) Dio "Holy Diver"

What the heck is 'vinyl'? Wink

Every metalhead knows that they don't relase on LP anymore because all our vinyl reserves are now used to make Rob Halford's pants.

Dude, Your one rule knocked me out.
I've got no metal- vinyls left; all scratched, cracked, broke, loaned out, etc..& after CD's I never looked back (actually most that I had were on cassette).

But since I'm a Rock N Roll Rebel I'll give you my list anyhoot:

1. Black Sabbath, Paranoid
2. Metallica, Black Album
3. AC/DC, Back in Black (I know, a lot of Black)
4. Guns N Roses, Appetite for Destruction
5. Ozzy Osbourne, Diary of a Madman (My First Metal Album)

There are many more that would be very close in line, some old, some new.

LOL. Nice one Doc.

A top 5 metal album list is incredibly difficult for me since I love metal in all it's forms and am pushing close to a 1000 cd's, but I'll give it a shot. I really would need to do a top 100 to include the bands/albums that have inspired me over the years. I think we need to do a top 25 metal bands list after this!

1. Bolt Thrower - The IVth Crusade - (England) This is my hands down all time favorite metal band. They sing about war and its many repercussions. They rarely come to the US but I was lucky enough to see them in Maryland last year and it was the best show I've ever seen. Seeing them live was on my "things to do before I die" list.

2. Immortal - At The Heart of Winter - (Norway) These guys are true black metal masters, one of the highest regarded bands out there. They practically carried black metal on their backs to the mainstream metal scene. I was able to see them in NJ about 10 years ago and it blew my mind how good they were!

3. Slayer - Reign in Blood - (US) What else can be said about these guys. One of the best thrash metal albums ever produced. It still holds up amazingly well today for an album pushing 25 years old.

4. Nile - Annihilation of the Wicked - (US) Death metal with ancient Egyptian influenced music and lyrics. All of their albums are fantastic but this one is my favorite. They even use some traditional Egyptian instruments while painting a musical landscape that reminds of a History Channel documentary on ancient Egypt.

5. Bathroy - NordlandI&II - (Sweden) - Their viking themed albums are legendary in the metal underground. They are credited with inventing folk/viking inspired metal and, I personally, think no other band has ever come close to topping them. The music is raw but the lyrics and imagery are unmatched. It makes me want to drink mead and conquer foreign lands.

Well, I no longer have them, but I did have them on vinyl so I'll list em anyhow.

Black Sabbath - Heaven and Hell

Metallica - Master of Puppets

Ozzy Osbourne - Diary of a Madman

Montrose -Montrose

Judas Priest - Live, Unleashed in the East

I could easily list 20 fav's in different orders on any given day.

Early Steppenwolf from 1969 with that long improv that turns into "The Pusher".

Iron Butterfly "In A Gadda Da Vida"

Led Zeppelin II

Deep Purple "Made in Japan"

Black Sabbath "Paranoid"

Kiss "alive"

Alice Cooper "Schools Out"

AC/DC "Live"

Oooops, more than 5. The Who, Kniks....., what about John Mayall maybe.

Got them all in vinyl. Some original releases, some later releases, and some brand spanking new.

Never much of a metal fan, but I have to show love to Anthrax's "I'm the Man" EP. Not only did it anticipate the rap-metal connection that would be the big thing a decade later, but you gotta love a song that uses the riff from "Hava Nagilah".
