The Top Ten
Halloweed be Thy Name is best heavy song of all time. Death Metal is good but In Flames isn't good to deserve top 10, also CoB. Accept's Balls to The Walls in 39 and it deserves top 5. Iron Maıden is the best heavy metal band of all time and you don't understand it.
How can this masterpiece be 4th? WTF is wrong with the world today? Bullet for my valentine is crap, Opeth is good, In flames and children of bodom are great, but they are a shadow of Iron Maiden! Up the irons!
Number of the Beast below Opeth and BFMV? Come on people, do you even know what metal is?More comments about Iron Maiden - The Number of the Beast
My history teacher in 1987 used to play alexander the great and take a break in his office for 10 minutes and called this a lesson. Classic album
last of their immortalizing thrilogy and, in my humble opinion, the best of their works, hands down!
Hah! What a joke, Children of Bodom and In Flames are ahead of the 'Metal Gods'! Get a life idiots. This is the albums which defined the Heavy Metal genre along with Black Sabbath's Paranoid.Listen to sample
Black Sabbath (with Ozzy) cannot be touched when it comes to Heavy Metal. The legendary riffs, the spot on lyrics, the unique vocals... They define Metal and are still selling out venues to this day.
The world's best band and their best album. From soft sentimental voicings and aweinspiring acoustic guitar passages to raw death metal, this band has it all. Simply the best.
MOZART of METAL... nuff said..
not really my favorite album but there's no other opeth album on this list.. the night and the silent water is amazing.. but my favt opeth songs are the apostle in triumph, the moor and the entire blackwater park album.. OPETH RULES (not just europe lol)

This band spearheaded the Melodic Death Metal invasion and it can all be drawn back to this album. The definition of Swedish Death Metal is "The Jester Race"!!!
Some of the finest guitar (and keyboard) work ever. This is balls to the wall, relentless, melt you're face off stuff. Very well written, a true wall of sound.

Modern Black Metal's leading force. Insane drums, awesome keyboards, original guitar, diabolical vocals..."Triumphant" in every way.
the sound this band produced on this album is unlike anything ever heard.
Yeah... Buller RULES...
Is The Best Metal Album For Me...
SCREAM AIM FIRE!...
What the hell Fever Is doing down below... Its the very good album by bullet For My Valentine but fever is their best..
Over the top! Over the top! Right now is killing time! This song is amazing and the list of the songs on the album is amazing.
I love CoB most among all these selected bands and I think this album is best of CoB not sure about all of other bands Because I have heard a few of them
The Best guitar/keyboard solo I think you will ever hear!
No doubt their best work and one of the best power metal albums ever! The vocals are breath-taking and the instruments are close to perfect! This album has it all from soft ballads like tallulah to power-metal anthems like black sheep. Perfect!
i just love tony kakko....and i love the way jani plays....and the songs are just wonderful. it's something that opened my eyes and made me see that there are different styles of metal not just death metal...now i really love power/symphonic..
Get over yourselves, his vocals kick ass. One of the darkest (and greatest) metal albums I've ever heard. A must have for any metal head's collection.
Beautiful album. Strong sensual music. Charming then another voice Tarja Turunen. So maybe she sings forever...
Get this band more popular! They deserve it! These guys are extremely talented artists with keyboard and operatic beauty mixed with epic heavy metal riffs! Even withe the new girl the music is still wonderful.
An album that is the ultimate combination of Swedish Death metal and hardcore. Great songwriting mixed with astonshing angry vocals. I punched a wall when I heard track tweleve...
They are far more better than any power metal band I've ever heard in my life
This is my favorite gothic metal ever, this album really had that hot topic quality to it and that what I was into back in Jr high so Nyphetamine best album from Europe
This band is mind-numbing! Never before has there been a band with such finger-twisting guitar and such brutally insane death metal vocals. Simply amazing.
A band that has found a perfect median between speed and harmony. And because they just keep getting better, this most recent release is their greatest piece of art. Finland's finest!
This is real metal! Real POWER METAL!
Are you understend that? I am in shock!
Helloween must be 1
Iron Maiden - 2
And Judas priest -3!
Pioneers of Black Metal in the nineties, this band reaches greatness with "At the Heart of Winter". Singer/Songwriter Abbath displays the best black metal vocals ever recorded.
Now this is an unique band, it's hard even trying to place them into an specific metal genre. Their concerts are like a comunion with the fans, if you've ever been to one of their shows you know what I'm talking about. You might not jump as hard but you'll definitely sing one and every single chorus at least.
I'm SHOCK! This is the first power metal album ever is should be in the first places remove iron maiden brave new world and replace it with rainbow rising!
A standout among standouts. One of many brilliant releases by In Flames. Not just good musicianship but very original writing and composition
Out of this list, this one wins. Very underrated. One of the best black metal bands for sure.
Good song structure, excellent percussion, guitar rides from Hell, bone-chilling vocals, and just a tad of Satan thrown in...makes this some good/clean.....black metal fun....by Craft; as good as Sargeist...and maybe just a bit more....diverse.
Black Metal's greatest accomplishment. Old school Black Metal mixed with mind-bending musical composition. Norwegian Black Metal at it's finest.
Simply the most brutal anti-christian "Black/Death" Metal album ever spawned from the depths of hell...and I love every f***ing second of it!!!
the very best album by one of the very few heavy metal groups of all time. and, yes, they are British. also, they freaking rock.
