Vile Hamster Classic Metal

No real order of favorites. Just a Half-decent list of My favorite Clasic rmetal picks. Thrash, rrGroove, or just straight up face-smashing goodness, rits all here. Now go eat some pop tarts.
1Motorhead
Overkill


Following up bomber, The punk spirit combined with thrash riffs Made for one hell of a listen. I would nearly dare to say this Out did ACE OF SPADES for my favorite Motorhead album.
2Judas Priest
Painkiller


After albums like TURBO and RAM IT DOWN, many doubted If Priest still was welll..... Priest. Painkiller came back to slap the metal community in the face. In my opinion, this album is one of the strongest drumming and guitar riff albums ever released (arguably of course). One key factor that kept heavy metal going (yes I know Pantera) During the 90's to me.
3Rainbow
Rising


Combine Ritchie Blackmore on guitar, and Ronnie James Dio (R.I.P) together, That formula just works. Rainbow rising proves that. While only 6 songs long, it feels like an out of body journey when you listen to it.
4Sepultura
Arise


If I had to say my favorite album by Sepultura, this is it, Songs blend well, and honestly, I enjoy this album for the pure fact of just Headbanging away to it. All around Solid Album from the Brazilian Heavy metal Beasts.
5Kreator
Extreme Aggression


The Album title pretty much says it all. Heavy as fuck release from One of three of Germany's Most Important Metal Bands ( SODOM, DESTROYER)
6Anthrax
Among the Living


Between songs like Indians, Caught In A Mosh, and I am the Law, AMONG THE LIVING Prevailed Above Many albums During the 80's thrash explosion. This remains next to FISTFUL OF METAL as my favorite Anthrax album.
7Corrosion of Conformity
Deliverance


Very Reminiscent Of Deep purple to me with a little grungy feel. Overall Vocal and Very strange and yet, intriguing guitar work drew me in after a few listens. You most likely Heard "ALBATROSS" from these guys...Maybe. Well the album is just as enjoyable if you liked what you heard.
8Iron Maiden
Powerslave


Its Iron Fucking Maiden. Whether It be the opening ACES HIGH, The Monster of a title track, Or the epic RIME OF THE ANCIENT MARINER, few heavy metal albums (with the obvious Exceptions) Can stand on Par with this all around Face-melter.
9Pantera
Cowboys from Hell


Yes VDOP Is the album that Most Pantera Fan would pick right of the Bat. To me, CFH Is the first Pantera album anyone should check out. From Tracks Like Domination, and of course, "WERE THE COWBOYS FROM HELL!!!" To the pure Beauty and amazement of the Haunting Cemetary Gates, This album Just captured the attention more to me.
10Helloween
Keeper of the Seven Keys Pt. 1


Extremely Underrated Album In terms of all around technical skill (in my opinion at least)
11Sodom
Agent Orange


Honestly, i only recently started listening to Sodom heavily, and Agent Orange Well i couldn't stop listening, Its Heavy Its addictive, even Against modern metal albums, AGENT ORANGE holds up very well.
12Slayer
Hell Awaits


One of the first Metal albums I owned, The speed is fast, The drumming is Loud, The vocals are "in your face". Honestly, even in a very passive mood this album makes me wanna start a mosh pit after a good minute into it.
13Black Sabbath
Master Of Reality


Its Sabbath. Its a Given. You will See 2 other Sabbath albums here... most likely.
14Motorhead
Ace Of Spades


If you listen to metal, You have heard "ACE OF SPADES". The Album is just as amazing, I need not say more.
15Motley Crue
Too Fast for Love


I cannot take Glam very seriously most of the time, The first 2 or 3 crue albums, however just stood out. TFFL, Actually is pretty decent, I would have to say One of the few 80's glam albums I can say I like as an album.
16 Metallica
Kill 'Em All


Everybody has their own opinion about Metallica. Even so, KILL 'EM ALL remains one of the most important albums in Thrash during the early 1980's, and one of the first half decent american Thrash metal releases in quite some time.
17 King Diamond


High pitched Evil vocals (Which I actually like in this case), Were at first the only drawback, But after a few listens, I realized how Amazing it was. Very Horror- based to my liking, and So So Underlooked as a Classic Pick.
18Judas Priest
British Steel


Tied With PAINKILLER as my favorite Priest album. Its not as heavy and technical, but at the same time, its genius. Plus who doesnt love BREAKING THE LAW?
19Blue Oyster Cult
Secret Treaties


Very Proggy album, The very Infamous DONT FEAR THE REAPER is on this. Looking past that, The album stand-alone from that track is still a very complex and fine piece of work.
20Sepultura
Chaos A.D.


While a little more Mainstream ( I kinda feel that way at least) I think This Release kinda Cemented Sepultura as a Staple in the headbanger books. Yes I know how Amazing BENEATH THE REMAINS is but to me, CHAOS A.D. Broke the glass ceiling while Beneath the remains was the start of the elevation.
21Black Sabbath
Paranoid


Iron man, paranoid, War pigs.... Yeah More reasons. Sabbath needs no explaining though
22Black Sabbath
Black Sabbath


the Last Sabbath album i will list, honestly, i love the first 5 albums, but my top three are listed. If you are asking yourself who BLACK SABBATH is, go slap yourself,, then google it.
23Dio
Holy Diver


Cause RJD's vocals alone gave me goosebumps.
24Iron Maiden
Iron Maiden


I can't Pick a favorite Maiden album. However this would be in my top 3. Early amazing maiden.
25Iron Maiden
Killers


Its just that good. Might as well list it.
26Iron Maiden
The Number Of The Beast


Very Predictable, but Its a given for metal.
27Metallica
Master of Puppets


Come one, you have yelled "OBEY YOUR MASTER, MASTTERRR!!" really loud, then listened to the rest of the album and realized, Dude this is awesome.
28Slayer
Reign in blood


One of the best thrash albums ever made. hands down.
29Kreator
Pleasure to Kill


Kreator's Shining Work, and im sure fan favorite
30Megadeth
Rust in Peace


Never was much for Megadeth Until i sat down listened to RUST IN PEACE. I was surprised, and can say it did deserve alot of the hype it had and still has.
31Hawkwind
Warrior on the Edge of Time


Its So Epic, and honestly , i just dig it. I dunno why, Honestly the sound just draws you in and you can't stop listening, thats how i feel about it.
32Ozzy Osbourne
Blizzard of Ozz


The prince of darkness may not be the greatest singer, but his early solo efforts had enough audio- scenery in them to make the albums all around very worthwhile.
33Motley Crue
Dr. Feelgood


Why? Cause This was an actually really well done album during the 80's, Unlike alot of Glam counterparts, Crue actually made some really decent track, particularly on this album.
34Skid Row
Skid Row


Addictive, yet again one of the few decent glam metal albums in my opinion.
35Mercyful Fate
Melissa


This is a release, I felt also was Extremely Underrated in terms of imagery, and technical skill at the time it was put out. Mercyful fate killed on this album, Simple as that.
36Rush
Moving Pictures


Its prog metal, it spacey Its Epic and its awesome. F'n Neil Peart man.
37Pantera
The Great Southern Trendkill


This album was really really really heavy, its not overlooked, but it is at the same time. Honestly in terms of technical prow-less , This is at the top of the list for Pantera.
38Testament
Practice what you preach


Melts faces, Cracks skulls, and is one Monster of an Album.
39Death
Human


One of the most important and well-done Death Metal Album of all time.
40Skid Row
Slave to the Grind


A large departure from the Glam Metal days, They pulled off an amazing transition, and Made one Amazing Follow-up. I didn't believe this was the same band at first.
41Exodus
Bonded By Blood


Their Debut Stands as a Powerful thrash Classic, Yes Kirk Hammett was in the band prior to joining Metallica. That doesn't matter, Exodus Still Unleashed fury to the masses.
42Metal Church
Metal Church


This Band name alone is awesome. Surprise! the album Is uhhh.... Pretty Legit
43Judas Priest
Screaming for Vengeance


Priest's Shining moment in terms of popularity. The Album still shine bright as a heavy metal classic.
44Deep Purple
Machine Head


Yes they are Classic rock, I think this is however a very metal album regardless and influenced so many bands i couldn't keep count
45Yes
Fragile


One of the first and best prog. albums ever made (of course arguably) 40 something years old and still taking bands to school.
46King Crimson
In The Court Of The Crimson King


Pretty Much the same thing i wrote about Yes's FRAGILE. Except these guys did it first.
47Pantera
Vulgar Display of Power


I got to this one. It Really is one hell of a Album.
48 Mercyful Fate
Don't Break the Oath


I don't know why i enjoy this one, but i do.
49Venom
Black Metal


I can't stand VENOM after the first two albums. That being said this album is said to have influenced many many bands. I can hear why.
50Motorhead
Bomber


As it Began, it ends. Bomber is Well-crafted, and to me in the top 4 Motorhead albums. Prior to OVERKILL, there was bomber.
