Top 10 Heavy Metal Albums So Far

The ten best heavy metal classic albums I?ve listened to so far. This is going to be my first list, so any feedback is appreciated, positive or negative. Have fun!
Holy Diver

The most consistent metal album out there since every single one of its songs is great. Dio and his fellow musicians deliver a flawless masterpiece, not to mention the influence on the Power Metal genre.
PS: Don?t Talk To Strangers.
Master Of Puppets

Metallica?s overall best album. Expect no less than shouted vocals, frenzied guitar work and amazing creativity in songs like Battery, MoP, Welcome Home, Orion, Disposable Heroes and Damage INC.
Rust In Peace

Breathtaking. Marty Friedman and Dave Mustaine provide some of the best guitar work out there. Hangar 18, Holy Wars and the title track show that quite well.
Ride The Lightning

Ride The Lightning is a beast that shouldn?t be underestimated. Most songs are among Metallica?s best. Hell, even Escape is reasonably good.
5Iron Maiden

Iron Maiden has tons of great albums, but I consider this one slightly better than the likes of 666, Seventh Son and Piece Of Mind. Why? It?s the best package, containing an instrumental track, three great hits, decent middle stuff and, of course, Rime Of The Ancient Mariner. The artwork is also top notch.
6Yngwie Malmsteen
Rising Force

The best (almost) instrumental album I know, with a tempting classic feel. Black Star and Far Beyond The Sun examplify the former statement.
Among The Living

Interesting lyrics, heavy riffs, nice high-pitched vocals. A fascinating thrash achievement. Indians is superb, too.
8Black Sabbath
Heaven And Hell

Paranoid is surely very good, but this is the definitive Black Sabbath album. Dio?s singing technique is quite different from Ozzy?s, and that made the band?s music much more interesting in my opinion. Iommi, Butler and Ward are also fantastic, which is easily proved by songs like Children Of The Sea and Die Young.
Reign In Blood

Fast and furios. After listening to this I felt like I had been beaten up, and it felt great. Raining Blood and Angel Of Death are the stand-out tracks here.
10Dream Theater

Much like Powerslave, Octavarium presents great songs such as The Root Of All Evil and Panic Attack combined with an epic finisher.
