|Best hard rock/metal albums of 1976|
Here the blackmore's back. This second album properly introduces a singer that will become an icon in Heavy-Metal : Ronnie James Dio. No real classics but eight astounding tracks that will open the way for all the "Dungeon" Metal of the 80s.
Often prefered from Toys In The Attic, this is another fine release from the Aero.
|3||Blue Oyster Cult|
Agents of Fortune
Yes, here it is. The one with Don't Fear The Reaper.But the rest is worth your time and can be considered minor classics.
The album Gene Simmons is the most proud of. Yes, there is something great in this album, if you look closely.
A Day at the Races
Definitely a follow-up to A Night At The Opera released in 1975. This goes more into the pop section, though Tie Your Mother Down and White Man will be enjoyed by Southern and Hard Rock fans.
Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
Here they are. The band that will soon be synonimous to Hard Rock. This third (yes, really) album is still a little rough but the band's style is almost there. The title track is a classic.
Forget about the offensive cover and just enjoy the Hendrixian hard rock those Germans are proposing to your ears. Not a real classic but a fine hard rock album.
Yes, the one album with The Boys Are Back In Town. A bunch of classics from Ireland's finest hard rock band.
The Canadian trio goes completely progressive with this semi-concept album. The instrumental intro is one of the most over-the-top moment in their carreer.
Sad Wings of Destiny
Judas Priest creates his own version of Heavy-Metal after a forgettable first album. The band sound will improve with the following albums but you have mostly everything there.
