Top 50 Metal Albums Of All Time

The top 50 metal albums of all time, in order
1Iron Maiden
The Number Of The Beast


May not be everyone's favourite album, but the Maidens have influenced so many metal styles, have had so much impact on the metal genre as a whole, that there is no other band than these guys who deserve to get the top spot.
2Dream Theater
Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From A Memory


The defining prog metal album of all time. Dream Theater was the band that really put the genre on the map. Plus, it's just a killer album in all respects.
3Slayer
Reign In Blood


THE Thrash metal album of all time. If I didn't have this high up on my list I'd be a metal SINNER.
4Queensryche
Operation: Mindcrime


best concept album ever recorded, I know scenes has a concept too but the story is better here. dream theater are musically better though which is why this is at 4 and that is at 2.
5Metallica
Master Of Puppets


the album that brought metal to the mainstream and led half the metalheads to be where they are today, maybe not the *best* metal album but has such an influence it's ungodly.
6In Flames
The Jester Race


because it singlehandedly invented a new genre called Gothenburg Metal, and therefore belongs on the list
7Black Sabbath
Paranoid


No Sabbath = bad list, this is their best album in my opinion
8Judas Priest
Painkiller


Yep.
9Opeth
Blackwater Park


I'd have put Still Life but this one is more critically acclaimed and almost just as good. What a fucking killer prog death metal album.
10Blind Guardian
Imaginations From The Other Side


A classic of the power metal genre
11Helloween
Keeper Of The Seven Keys Pt. 2


another classic of the power metal genre
12Pantera
Vulgar Display Of Power


despite the fact I don't like Pantera they warrant a high spot on this list due to the amount of bands they've influenced
13Megadeth
Rust In Peace


thrash classic, best they ever recorded, belongs on every metal best of list imo
14Candlemass
Epicus Doomicus Metallicus


A doom metal classic, period
15Dark Tranquillity
Character


The other great melodeath band
16Mayhem
De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas


I HATE black metal but since that's a subgenre too it warrants a spot
17Nightwish
Oceanborn


a marriage of classical symphony and power metal, definitely belongs up there
18Iced Earth
Burnt Offerings


Power + thrash metal = a good thing in my opinion
19Death
Scream Bloody Gore


death metal inventor
20Arcturus
The Sham Mirrors


avant-garde greatness, also from the black metal scene so there you go
21Faith No More
Angel Dust


I don't know if you could tag this metal or rock, but it's fucking killer nonetheless
22Metallica
Ride The Lightning


the other classic from Metallica
23Iron Maiden
Powerslave


putting this somewhat lower because I specifically don't like it as much as most people but since everyone seems to love it it should again be on here
